Yes, you are reading this right. You are also reading correctly that each reissue will be two discs with expanded liner notes by Pete Waterman Entertainment, Ltd. expert Tom Parker.

  2. They are slaying this over at the ICE forums…I don’t get it. He moved a LOT of product in the late 80’s/early 90’s. If Echo and the Bunnymen or New Order can get revisited with extra tracks and such, why not Rick Astley?

    I used to hate anything and everything 80’s music-wise. As I’ve gotten older and more nostalgic, I’ve softened on that stance somewhat. I still hate the 80’s “sound”, which to me is very high-endy, bass-light and digitally reverbed. I prefer more organic sounding stuff played on actual instruments. But I’m finding a lot of 80’s stuff that I like on second listen.
