Actual UV information has been thin on the ground whilst we've all been away it seems. OK, pretty much non-existent may be closer to the truth.
There is one interesting bit of information in that the majority of the Chrysalis portfolio, including the MU era Ultravox has been sold to a consortium including the original Head of Chrysalis, Chris Wright and they seem to be very positive about releasing interesting packages rather than the run-of-the-mill compilations we have seen.
Detailed info here.
This does, of course, explain why the Vinyl180 re-releases have faltered since the change of ownership would have resulted in the consent to release the albums being withdrawn - that would probably have had to have happened for the deal to go through.
This gets me thinking though. Would we want the Vinyl180 series to be completed? I still want the chance to get a clear vinyl copy so count me in for that but what other things would be good? the 'Special Extended Versions' all collected together, Live recordings, etc?
Since we are all back together it sounds like a good conversation to start! What do you all think??
