Title: Any other reissues planned?
Post by: oregonbri on May 24, 2006, 10:21
I read here that No Answer and II are set for remastered re-releases with bonus tracks. What about some of the other albums? As I was building up my collection, I was surprised that Secret Messages was remastered with bonus tracks, yet the far-superior (in my opinion, and I like SM) Time hadn't been. Nor had A New World Record, Out of the Blue or Face the Music, all of which seem like good candidates. Why haven't those discs been given the treatment, and does anybody know if they will?

  For that matter, has there ever been talk of a special edition of Secret Messages released as a double album?

Hi Brian, when Zoom was released the first batch of remasters coincided with it: Eldorado, Discovery, Time, Secret Messages...

So, are you saying that Jeff will have to record another new ELO album before we get any other remasters? I'm guessing that few of you think that's much of a possibility, but I could be wrong.
