I have to admit, I haven't bought any of the 2011 remasters. Whilst I am grateful that certain demos etc. have seen the light of day, I haven't felt the need to fork out my hard earned cash to actually own these new releases.
When the Wembley DVD was announced I felt that there was just about enough there to make me buy the release once again to gain some more footage. But I didn't rush in to pre-order, I thought I'd wait till maybe the price came down a few weeks/months later.
Now, QOL have announced a super deluxe package which look irresistible.
However, I have casually noticed recently that there are some super deluxe Pink Floyd releases on the horizon that look equally as sexy. And also a super deluxe re-release of U2's Achtung Baby, just as their previous superb re-releases had seemed to dry up.
Whilst I feel it may be an expensive yet envious autumn for Pink Floyd fans (who knows, they may have to resort to looting their local HMV), I can't help feel looking at U2 who are also on Universal. I think it has already been mentioned that the previous U2 re-releases far surpassed what has just been re-released by Queen, but this Wembley super deluxe edition makes me think has Universal got it wrong with the studio album re-releases or are there super deluxe editions to be announced? Just as we've bought/pre-ordered the "normal" editions? Or not, in my case...
Just a thought.
