As noted in the above banner currently, the new 2cd, 4lp re-release of the
extended version collection is expanded to include some of the blank
and jones remixes of brilliant on cd.

It also collects all the other digital and cd remixes in one place, but is
still called the 12 inch collection.

lots of options and bundles of t-shirts, etc, along with an exclusive 7 inch?
why not a 12 inch..

Extended: 2CD edition

CD 1:

1. All Stood Still (Extended Version) [05:04]
2. I Never Wanted To Begin (Extended Version) [06:19]
3. Reap The Wild Wind (Extended Version) [04:45]
4. We Came To Dance (Extended Version) [07:58]
5. One Small Day (Special Re-Mix) [07:50]
6. One Small Day (Special Re-Mix Extra) [08:31]

18. Brilliant (Blank & Jones Extended Remix)** [07:02]
19. Brilliant (Blank & Jones Club Mix)** [06:33]
20. Brilliant (Blank & Jones US Club Mix)** [06:49]

* = First time being released outside North America.
** = First time being released on vinyl.

Limited numbered ‘White Label’ 7” featuring edit versions of ‘Brilliant (Blank & Jones Extended Remix Edit)’ and ‘Brilliant (Blank & Jones Club Mix Edit)’ available only with the vinyl box set.

ok, some of these are really exclusive, some have been released before.

other's, like 'white china' have never been on vinyl before.

so there's a little something for everyone.

they weren't, they were digital only. [in germany].

the 2 edits are going to be on the exclusive vinyl 7 inch with
the bundle.

also, i wonder if the 12 inch version of the 'all in day (unedited)',
was any different from the album, as it's not included here either.

No, the 12" of All In One Day is the same as the album version and there is no extended mix. Ditto Hymn, Visions, Thin Wall, Passing Strangers, Sleepwalk, New Europeans (if you're in Japan). I so wish an extended version of The Thin Wall existed.

The brief for the set was purely extended versions and so instrumental versions of tracks, 7" edits & mixes were not included: the Lament era 7" cuts & mixes were made available on the limited double LP released through Pledge last year FYI. Also, this isn't meant as a re-release or expansion of the 'Ultravox Extended' CD: it is intended to be a completely new release.

Also, because it isn't clear, the versions of We Came To Dance included is the 7:58 version originally available on the clear vinyl 12", limited Collection 12" and Japanese Hymn 12". This is almost certainly the first time the track has appeared on legit CD anywhere in the world and is a welcome return to vinyl.

All the tracks are a new 2018 remaster that has been done in a very sympathetic style to ensure that the mixes remain true to the original sound with no clipping, over-compression or 'brick-walling'. However the level of detail revealed is superb with some tracks such as All Stood Still a true revelation. Even the Brilliant mixes sound much better than the over-compressed original digital versions.

As for why are the webstore only extra Brilliant mixes only on 7 inch? Well they are edits and fit nicely on a 7 inch. The format also gives a nice feel of an old white label. They are also a free extra so cost would be a factor.

Oh - forgot one thing. The comment "* = First time being released outside North America" applies to the vinyl release. The two US promo mixes were previously released on Blank & Jones CDs but the new versions are new transfers with a greater dynamic range (which is a good thing: loud things are loud/quiet things are quiet as they should be).

i wonder if this version of 'we came to dance' extended,
will have that weird speed up at 6:57 on the other version.

it always sounded like the tape master slipped and sped up.

of course, it could have been intentional, but it always sounded
wrong to me, and i tried to fix it on my own versions.

Yes & no.

It's at about 7:08 because it's the 7:58 version, not the 7:38 version. It was almost certainly was on purpose because there are other tempo changes in both mixes.

but other than that, its pretty great.
