2015 Japan Remasters: Santini, Deltics, New Light

Post by andrew fischer » 12 Dec 2014, 14:50

Hi everyone,

some more good news from Warner Music regarding remasters of Chris's old albums: reissues of Chris's first two albums will be released by Warner Music Japan on Feb, 11 and New Light Through Old Windows on Feb, 25. Check it out here: http://wmg.jp/artist/chris/

From the very low price for a Japanese CD (only JPY 1200 instead of average JPY 2000-3000) I may judge these CDs are neither the new remasters nor SHM-CDs, but simple reissues of previous remasters from 1991 in ordinnary CD-DA format. And yes, do not expect any bonus tracks...

Nevertheless, these 'old' remasters sound much better than the original CD issues and European reissues, this I may 100% prove to you as the owner of full CR Japanese CDs back catalogue. So it seems like a good deal to buy these CDs if you want perfect digital sound but prefer buying new items to searching for the second-hand ones.

best regards

Hi everyone,

some more good news from Warner Music Japan regarding remastering Chris's old albums: Shamrock Diaries CD reissue is scheduled for release on Apr, 6 (cat. # WPCR-17112). Check it out here: http://wmg.jp/artist/chris/WPCR000017112.html

Important thing is that this reisue is in SHM-CD (Super High Metal CD) format which is supposed to mean higher quality remaster in comparison to cheap 2015 reissues of Santini and Deltics albums (see my previous posts here). This would be the first ever Chris Rea release on SHM-CD. The price, however, is still relatively low for a SHM-CD - only JPY 1300 (ca. 10 EUR / 11 USD).

What is sad is that still no any bonus tracks are listed for this reissue...

Best regards
