Re: Should we tweet Urban Outfitters for US Spiceworld Vinyl Reissue?

As someone who owns a (tiny) reissue label, I've spoken with UMe's special products department (Gene Zacharewicz) extensively about future projects for our label as well as some interesting titles others have issued. We discussed the Girls, and he told me that the Spice LP took over 18 months to cle...

Re: 'Angels in Chains' - New Single! Released: June 19th

On Spotify US, it's listed as being released by Wonderful Productions Limited, which is her own company (formerly Firecracker Productions, then Geri Productions, now Wonderful). I wonder if Rhino isn't releasing it worldwide after all.

Almighty/7th Heaven producers DRAG Geri for her limited vocal range

After news of Geri's new single broke, Andy from Almighty (now 7th Heaven) left a scathing review of Geri's vocal performance on her NUMBER ONE HIT "Life Me Up"

The lyrics in early pressings of the album reflect the original mixes of the tracks, and not the album versions.

She doesn't control her Virgin material. I'm not sure where Javi pulled that from. It's administered by UMe.

Re: Listen to HQ Snippets of THREE Unreleased Songs!

I've said it before, maybe in another thread: these songs are NOT from the Northern Star recording sessions. They were recorded with Rick Nowels after the Northern Star campaign had ended, and she was experimenting with a direction for her second album. They also don't really fit into the Reason era...

Re: Listen to HQ Snippets of THREE Unreleased Songs!

These songs were recorded after Northern Star but long before work on Reason began. I spoke with Rick Nowels about this when putting together a proposal for a possible Northern Star reissue.

I'm sure it would be easier to just license all the song Mel B had recorded over the decade for her yet-to-be-released album. Mel B owns all of her masters from 2004 onward and has no interest in licensing them to third parties. As far as the rest of this thread – many of you have no idea how this ...

A clause in her contract with EMI Chrysalis was that she has final say of any reissues outside of the scope of the original album. I stand by this. That said, there is something else that can be done that wouldn't change the album but still make for an exciting release. That's all I'll say until an...

Kinda odd they aren't doing a repress? Maybe they still have a lot of stock in their stores? Still hoping for a European re-release. there is likely to be a contractual reason, if they licenced they title they were only allowed to press so many http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r135/NeptuneDannii/...
