Great idea for a second remastered box set! I would buy it!! I agree though that many years have gone by and there must be plenty of unreleased material to make up the next continuation of the dreamscapes box set!!

Well, we all know Marian has an unbelievable amount of unreleased material :) I wish a new Dreamscapes set could be made... I'd want it to cover the 1993 Strange Attractor, Untitled, and also the early days of CROG.


One track that I want to hear so badly is Emily... It appears to have been written and also composed, so it's very likely that a recorded demo exists!


One other one which I'd love to hear is Day of the Minotaur. assuming that's recorded, anyways. hell, even the lyrics would be neat to see.




EDIT: the lyrics to Emily






Emily comes in the morning
Far beyond your alarmclock's theme
Emily 's drawing a picture that you've never seen
Emily 's drawing a picture that you've never seen
She's painting her visions
Emily comes in the evening
And you love that she is near
Cause her delirious silence makes you see
Your life so clear
Emily 's drawing a picture that you've never seen
She's painting her visions
But sometimes at night when you gaze at her sight
You wonder is she real
She never had a word about the things that she heard
Or the sadness she may feel...
Emily comes in the evening...
Oh Emily...

Next boxset

That was a footnote in the discography that I added back when I ran the website, and it is not a joke, as I own that 7“. It“s a german radio promo single that wea released in fear the guitar intro might startle drivers too much when listening in their car (at least that was Bernd‘s assumption as we talked about it)

Interesting reason... I don't like the guitar intro personally so it's cool to know a mix without that exists... Thanks for shedding light on the subject!

Romeos without the guitar intro...…… well, that just wouldn't be Romeos now would it? LOL

I think HN was saying he would prefer a new Dreamscapes box (13-18) rather than a deluxe of the other albums. There is enough material for it. Lots of unrealesed stuff from Prostitute to Strange Attractor era.

What is Jerusalem (maxi b-side)?

What about the Marian solo stuff like Waves and Whales?

You could put the LP version of Dance With Me on the CD and put the “cd version” on the 7” disc.

I don’t think it will happen. Bernhard remastered FY but it’s known he dislikes AIU

I'd be voting for a continuation of the Forever young boxset. Give AIU the same treatment. I got the impression that's the way it will go. My impression is based on nothing by the way!

Thank you very much s7, at least a little light! There was a time I regulary checked gemm, eil, musicstack or ebay for objects I thought were missing in my wannabe-complete collection, never met this one. Happy to read from you. Would you kind enough to check the label for any printed differences, if any, with the regular 7'' such as lenght or anything?
