|Underwhelmed downunder here.......the cynical me I guess, but this re-issue thing has been done to death and it prays financially on us Oldfield fools who keep on buying. Give us something NEW Mr O.....its overdue.|
1) These old Virgin albums have been deleted, and are no longer being produced. These albums are amazing, and they deserved to be put out there, on the market, for everyone to enjoy. It's not just about scourging the fans for money, it's about making this brilliant music available again. And thankfully, while they're going about re-releasing them, they're putting all this bonus material on there as well!
2) No-one has a gun to your head forcing you to buy this stuff. If you are happy with your current copy of the albums, you are under no obligation to buy the new versions. If you don't like it, vote with your wallet and boycott the new editions!
There are countless versions of versions out there in the market, and I like many others have quite a collection and will probably continue to do so as long as there is something a little different. My point which you entirely overlooked is that I and I think many others would actually like something new....we have had "new" Versions of the classics with TB/HG and Ommadawn recently.....and it would have been nice if it was interspersed with something entirely new.
