Emancipation 2019 Reissue - First Unboxing!



Thanks to Sony and the Estate, I was able to receive the first copies of the new reissues for an exclusive unboxing!

Check out the video here, since YouTube embed appear to be broken on the org right now.


The new reissues of Emancipation, Chaos & Disorder and The Versace Experience will be out on September 13th, and we've got unboxings of C&D and Versace coming on the channel in the next few days!

Dear God, NO!


A FUCKING DIGI-PACK!!???!!!!

prepare to have your discs scratched at first opening, then battered packing the longer you keep it. Scuffing with each fold and adhesive that falls apart.

I'm against plastics n all getting tossed into the environment but these are meant to be kept and used in hypothetical perpetuity (*or at least a lifetime)

Good lord, that box set is beautiful!!

Thanks for taking the time to make that cool video!

The box set looks so much nicer than what I was expecting!

I appreciate a lot of artwork has been used but a full sizes booklet would have also been very nice - but oh well.

Thank you!


cool

So cool! Thanks for sharing!

It looks beautiful, but does it seem to others that the cover on the vinyl has been stretched rather than cropped?

In any case, it’s a beautiful set!

Hello, I have looked at this very closely and compared to 1996 artwork.

I can't see any skewing of the image.

The central circle in the Symbol icon is not entirely circular as that image on the video is in perspective.


cool

This is not the first unboxing, there was one on a Facebook group the other day. Please amend the post.


Also why didn't you give your opinion on how they sound on vinyl. Surely the most important aspect of the release.

Major fail.

Proof? I searched, and didn't see any.

I didn't give my opinion on the sound because as you can see in the video, I literally took out of the box on camera. That's what an unboxing is. It's not an unsounding.

C'mon, be nice!

First, second, third... tenth, doesn't matter!

A lot of effort goes into these videos for us to enjoy!

I for one am happy to have a first sneak peek at this box set.

After all, it's an ''unboxing'' video!

Peace and B wild - I think someone once said!

You know, normally I'm kind of unimpressed with the gigantic artwork of vinyl but I really had no clue what was going on in that Chaos & Disorder cover before this video breakdown, it just processed as a big mass of mess to me before. Thank you, Militant.... I think I kinda like the cover now.

I asked Sony about this and they said at the moment they only have the go-ahead from the Estate to do reissues. This can stretch to things that were technically released but in very limited quantity such as "The Versace Experience" but as it stands, not to totally new compilations like WB did with "Originals" or things not released at all in any form.

I think it won't be too long before that changes because soon enough they'll have reissued everything. This year alone we've seen Musicology, 3121, Planet Earth, Rave Un2, Rave In, Emancipation, Chaos & Disorder and Versace. So that's a pretty hefty release schedule.


I don't know what's next but there's still TRC, 20TEN, Lotusflow3r, Crystal Ball that will hopefully all be in the 2020 schedule and then I imagine serious discussions will start about where they go from there.


I'd like to see some similar projects to Versace as well. Perhaps the NPG Sampler Tape or NYC Jam Of The Year/Face Down.

I'd love to see The Undertaker released on vinyl. I wonder if the VHS release of this puts the music into the 'technically released' category. I really hope so.

I prioritised Versace for my pre-order with this round of releases... can’t stretch to the others for now, given my current finances. As I’ve ran out of kidneys to sell, I guess I can just gaze wistfully at this one in HMV instead. lol

That's a very good point and it would indeed be awesome. I think that one would fall under the WB deal though, not the Sony deal.

Digi-pack=cost reduction 2 increase the margin. Environment concern?
I'm selling the first release (CD case wink) still sealed.
