6 S080S - Alphaville release with 12" & B-sides

Dear friends!

This year we are celebrating Alphaville's 30th Anniversary with a super special release. For the first time ever all 80s 12" versions and b-sides, remastered from the original master tapes are assembled on one double-album. In addition, a 36-page-booklet features all original record artworks, private archive photos and track by track annotations. The project was realised over the past 3 years in close collaboration with Blank & Jones and we are absolutely excited about the result:

==== so8os presents ALPHAVILLE ====

The official release date of the album will be October, 31st 2014.
But at this stage we are happy to offer you a special pre-order link: As a limited run, 1000 copies will be signed by Bernhard and me and sold exclusively right here: www.jpc.de/so80s and enjoy.

From Alphaville with love
Marian Gold and Bernhard Lloyd

Finally, my dream comes true[jump2]

I ordered it immediately yesterday after I saw the wonderful "items" [smile2]

And it's just magic to have all this version remastered from the original master tape on a double cd, but still, there is 5 songs missing ...
BIJ, SLAM (single version), FY (fast single version) & the dub mix from Red Rose & Sensations [captain]

Jet Set single's version is on the best of - first harvest 1984-92 [smileg]


Te raconter enfin qu'il faut aimer la vie et l'aimer même si je suis fatigué du mensonge et de la vérité que je croyais si belle, que je voulais aimer et qui est si cruelle que je m'y suis brulé ... .

Alas, no on "Jet Set" single version. :( The version on First Harvest was remixed to give it more of a '90s percussion sound. The drum beat's totally different and kinda weird. Check out the original Jet Set video (youtube) then compare that to the First Harvest mix and you'll be sad too.

If I'm not mistaken, there's 3BIJ, and FY dance version.


Whatever you do, never explain yourself : your friends don't need it, and your enemies won't believe you.

There's 4 BIJ in 1984 : Album version, Maxi single ((Extended Re-Mix), Dub Mix (Extended Instrumental Mix) & the single version who's different from the album version and not included on this cd
There's 3 SLAM : Album Version, Maxi Single (Special Long Version) & the single version who's different from the album version and not included on this cd
There's 3 FY : Album Version, Maxi Single (Special Dance Version) & on the french single version, there's a disco version who have the same speed at the maxi single but short like the album version and it is not included on this cd

Do you guys happen to have clean-sounding, high quality copies of the 7" versions of Jet Set and Sounds Like a Melody? I own the vinyl releases but mine are pretty crackly unfortunately.

Weird translation indeed. Seems what we can get with an online translator.
