£8.99 for each double CD via the domino website. i just did a naughty and preordered all three :D
blimey - ANOTHER reissue... is this really necessary when you can get all those tracks already.
I've just read Dean Wareham's book - absolutely amazing. Didn't realise he really hated the other two in Galaxie 500 so much.
so i'm not going to complain about getting all three studio albums, the rarities CD, the peel session and copenhagen in three nice discount little packages.
(also i think this all came about because damon/naomi reaquired the masters and the rykodisc versions going out of print, these ones are coming out on their label in the US)
and for a time Dean was portrayed (in the English music press at least)as the most evil person in rock (for breaking up such a beautiful band). I remember early Luna reviews that only talked about that. Definitely harmed Luna's chances in the UK.
which one should it be?
so I'd say...
all of them
first one and all. plus, it's the sound of a lovely warm summer day turned into music.
'Blue Thunder', 'Snowstorm', Dean's incredible solo at the end of 'When Will You Come Home'...
I shall pre order.
the remastered resissues in question, which they have at £12 (still a bargain, of course.)
i just got emailed mp3 links for all of the bonus CDs! ILUDOMINO <3
Looking forward to listening to them. By the way, anyone know when Damon and Naomi tickets for The Luminaire go on sale?
I bought all the vinyl at the time of release, saw them play at the ULU on the This Is Our Music tour. Such a great band. Updated to cd versions courtesy of that nifty little boxset with the additional rarities cd some years back. I've no need to buy them again but I love the idea of a new generation getting into them. Tough picking a favourite out of the three albums but would probably say On Fire as that holds the best memories and has the best sleeve. Enjoy one and all!
