Hi everyone,

Finally, some good news from Warner: Chris's first album is to be reissued as vinyl replica 96/24 high definition CD in late November. You can already pre-order it on Amazon UK.

Here is the info on the upcoming reissue, seems like it is gonna be a really good remaster with a really nice packaging: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Whatever-Happen ... B00NHPM1A2

It is good to know as Benny Santini CD was maybe the hardest CR album CD to find, as its latest reissue dates back to 1991... Regrettably, there are no any bonus tracks added...

I got amazed whether this is going to be the only album to be reissued in such format or if this is only the first one from the longer series...

best regards
Andrey

Hi Anneke

Tried to google it quickly, I only found these ones I have already written here about: http://www.chrisrea.nl/community/viewto ... 23&p=12843

A reseller from Denmark says it is 2015 new remaster which I really doubt. Are you sure it is the same type of re-release by Culture Factory as 2014 Santini reissue?

Thanks a lot nonetheless
Best regards
Andrey

I do think so, although the Dutch site didn't show a picture yet. It will be released 11 february, so I guess it won't be long for they put more information on line. Seems logic to rerelease the first albums in order of their official release.
Amazon UK gave a later release date, no idea why.
You're welcome.

Hi again,

Culture Factory official website gives not a single hint on a new Chris Rea reissue, it only offers Benny Santini. Googling "Deltics by Culture Factory" yields no evident results. Meanwhile, release date of Japanese 2015 Deltics reissue is Feb 11 (as from Warner Music Japan website) and this is the item proposed by several European CD sellers, e.g.: http://www.imusic.dk/cd/4943674203970/c ... mpact-disc

From Japanese CD seller: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/WPCR-16197

Where did you see something about vinyl or mini-vinyl replica? Can you please give a link?

Thanks once again
Andrey

Hi Andrey,

Maybe you're rigt and is it the Japanese one, I don't know.
See Dutch link: http://www.bol.com/nl/p/deltics/9200000036437152/
And on Amazon uk, to be expected within 90 days but in category CD and vinyl, but looks like only CD:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=sr_nr_p_n ... =182236031

That is only a hint of what is coming, I'm not an expert on numbers...

Best wishes,
Anneke

Hi once again and thanks for the links!

It is evident that Bol.com offers Japanese CD (barcode number begins with 49) and Amazon gives too little information but I am pretty sure it offers the same.

best regards
