Just started getting together a new "Suite 1987-89" for release next year.
There are 25 reels of multitrack tapes (25 hours) to listen to for those two albums. What would you like to see on the new "Suite"?

What about that one-off charity concert Mike did in 1987?

If Mike just started working on the 1987-89 era albums, so is this mean Discovery and TKF albums with Suite 1984 are on the way to release soon? Can't find any information about the releasing of these remasters.

Hello everyone.
Thanks so much for all your posts.
I hope to have news and artwork very soon about the upcoming Discovery and Killing Fields re releases. I can tell you that the " Suite 1984 " will have some interesting surprises such as a Halloween special re mix....
More to come very soon.
Love Mike

I've always looked forward to a spooky version of Evacuation and Poison Arrows!  That Ghostly Prophet 5!

acoustic session
like this one would be interesting (albeit with better sound quality). I guess many potential buyers of such a suite are (amateur) musicians that are more interested in  the process of creativity like in this improvisation rather than in yet another re-mix of music that they already owed.

About the Anita area...

God knows we've got enough versions of TB, but around about that time, didn't he do a BBC radio session where he multitracked a shorter version in an afternoon?

Yes...

To promote Earth Moving, Mike re-recorded these tracks (Tubular Bells, Earth Moving, Innocent and Far Country) for the Nicky Campbell show, broadcast by BBC Radio 1 on the 23rd of August 1989. Mike used hand-played instruments, and also took this approach on his next album, Amarok. On the broadcast version, John Peel took the role of MC on Tubular Bells, but the master tape held by the BBC is instrumental.

It would be great to get these tracks:

Moonlight Shadow with new vocals by Anita, recorded in Stockholm 1986
When The Nights On Fire with Bonnie Tyler and Barry Palmer
Pictures In The Dark with Barry Palmer only
Additional instrumental from Islands sessions (mentioned by Micke Simmonds)

Please post it in Mike's Facebook group.

I would pay for every last second of those reels.  Whether it's good, awful, or just mediocre, it'd be good to hear everything we haven't heard before.  

Now, I would post this on Mike's FB Page, but a certain individual, who has bad days and decides to block and ban people without provocation, and is extremely unprofessional and harmful/toxic to Mike's career and fans, IMO, has prevented me from doing so. This person has made a lot of enemies and damaged my desire to listen to Mike's music and pay for it!  I do hope Mike realizes what's happening before it's too late!

This is the period of his music where the road became rocky. It doesn't interest me except the later breath of fresh air Amarok.

Amazing stuff. Plus us knowing 'In the Pool', 'Afghan' and other tracks like that with a really high standard of quality were left out of the albums, and for sure there must be other like them we don't know at the minute!!!


Mike, don't be afraid to share whatever you feel is relevant, because sometimes those odd rarities turn to revelations that can even take over the well known stuff in terms of quality.


Here's a little example: 'Last Dance' wasn't originally released in the The Cure's album 'Disintegration' and is by far the best song in the album in my humble opinion:
