Buried in the latest newsletter from Astralwerks was this...

HUMAN LEAGUE CLASSICS!

The groundbreaking first albums from the Human League have been reissued. "Reproduction," "Travelogue" and "Dare" have all been digitally remastered and include no fewer than 7 bonus tracks each! On their third album, Dare!, the Human League hit pay dirt. Perfectly fusing electronic music with infectiously catchy songwriting,"Dare" is one of the best selling electronic albums ever. Unlike other albums made at the time, it still sounds fresh and innovative. The entire "Love and Dancing" album (one of the earliest example of a remix album, featuring instrumental and dance mixes from "Dare," as well as the track "Hard Times") is included as bonus material.

Well, that sounds pretty interesting. I always liked "The Sound of the Crowd." I wonder how and why they decide to reissue stuff like this and why it takes so long to do. Any ideas?

All four parts of "The Dignity of Labour", thank goodness.

Man, what the hell is the matter with me, I keep feeling fascination...

I so need these reissues, even if they will remind me of the horror of being in a karaoke bar in Indy and seeing someone fail miserably in an attempt to do The Lebanon.

THE FOLLOWING TAKES PLACE BETWEEN 2 AM AND 3 AM ON THE DAY OF THE CALIFORNIA PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY. Bitchfactor, you make an *excellent* point WRT The Beatles' own interest in what we would now call sampling.
