CD Reissue Wish List 2004

Many of you will remember that we revisited, last year at this time, an old list I had cobbled together for discussion on rec.music.progressive in the summer of 1996. Today, we're going to go through what was on my website January 24, 2004. This list is courtesy of archive.org and is a snapshot of what you would have found going to thomashayes.com and my CD Reissue Wish List. Back then, I had separate pages for News (which I have preserved and you can see via the labels on your right such as 2003-2005 News), one for the Primary List (what you see below), and one for Bootlegs. I gave up the latter for a few reasons: 1) I didn't want to get into Legal trouble. 2) I was inadvertently giving these pirates more press than they deserved. And 3) I couldn't keep up with them. Especially then, when boots were more rampant, and perhaps more accepted.

I think if anything else, the one positive aspect the CDRWL has accomplished, is to call out the importance of a high quality legitimate reissue. And I found that a lot of you agree with me that it's crucial to do reissues the right way. I've never been on a crusade and I'm not condemning anyone. I do this for selfish reasons... I don't want to buy cheap illegitimate bootlegs - and now I refuse to. I did that too willingly in the 90's only to regret it later when a high quality reissue came out forcing me to yet buy another copy, and having a worthless pirate edition on my hands to resell back into the marketplace. I still have a few of those in my collection from back then - but that number has dwindled to maybe under 20 now. It was once at least 4 times that.

OK, so let's address the list. At this point in 2004, it was still strictly a list with no info or descriptions of the recordings. In fact, I'm sure the original list that went up in 2003 would look similar, as I didn't focus too much on it back then. The CDRWL was still in its infancy, and it pretty much stayed this way until about late 2006 or so, when I was able to start fleshing out the descriptions. You'll still see on my early blog entries back in 2009 and 2010 only a skeleton of information. It's just a matter of having time to put a few quality words down for each. As well, I think it's worth stating that this was still my personal wishlist at this point, rather than a compendium of prog/psych/fusion/electronic rarities not on CD.

You'll notice all sorts of gaps below (Thirsty Moon, Satin Whale, Kraftwerk, Rainbow Theatre, etc...) and that's because I also had an "avoid bootleg" list as mentioned above. I didn't incorporate those into the below exercise, as it would have been too much work. Many of those bootlegs have since been reissued (like Thirsty Moon and Rainbow Theatre's albums), and many unfortunately have not. Maybe I'll review that list next year and see the progress.

Since I did something similar to last year, I'm not going to repeat the data on items I covered then, unless there's new info to share. So what I will do is state: See (or In) last year's list. This will give you incentive to look at that one too! :-) I'll note which ones have been reissued to save you the step.

The link to last year's list is HERE.

It's worth repeating that the 1996 list was thrown together for discussion, and wasn't really that comprehensive. In some ways, the below was also thrown together too without going through each entry thoroughly. And then of course, there were plenty of reissues between 1996 and 2004. There's quite a bit of crossover with the 1996 list, but also both of these have major gaps that I hope I've filled in the last few years.

(Just as a point of clarification, since one of my readers brought this to my attention: The list below is the 2004 list, as it was at the time, with newly added comments. It's not the updated full 2014 list. For that, you can always look at the main list, which I try to update as much as possible.)

A.R. and Machines - Echo (Germany)
A.R. and Machines - IV (Germany)
--- So we start with the complicated one! The debut "Die Grune Reise" had a very obscure reissue from Polydor at this point, that I knew about but didn't own. This was before the excellent 2007 Tangram CD that I bought immediately. By the time of this list, I had learned of another very obscure reissue on Spectrum for both AR3 and Autovision. Those things are so rare and obscure, that I now just have them in the CDRWL as entries that need reissue (but probably why they aren't listed here). Echo and IV have never been reissued, nor has Erholung. I have no idea why I left off the latter. Reichel announced a couple of years ago he was going to reissue all of these like "Die Grune Reise", but it's obviously not come to pass. I have no idea why. These are fantastic albums that would sell well. Unfortunately there are numerous boots out there - so watch out!

Abacus - s/t (Germany)
Abacus - Just a Day's Journey Away (Germany)
--- These still need legit reissues, as does Midway. The third album "Everything You Need" has been reissued. To be honest, the only one I care about is the splendid debut.

Aera - Humanum Est (Germany)
Aera - Hand und Fuss (Germany)
Aera - Akataki (Germany)
Aera - Turkis (Germany)
--- Hand und Fuss was reissued along with Humanum Est on the house label Erlkoenig in 2004 (probably right after this list). They also reissued the excellent Live along with Turkis. The lackluster Too Much and the very good Akataki remain unissued, and this is because they were on Speigelei, which is owned by a major label. I have Much Groh listed below.

AFT/Automatic Fine Tuning - s/t (England)
---Still in the CDRWL as a Priority 1! I called this album out specifically as an oversight on last year's list. I loved this album since the day I bought it in 1985. So that's how I knew the '96 list was hastily drawn up.

Airlord - Clockwork Revenge (New Zealand)
---See last year's list

Aku Aku - Humanquake (Czech Republic)
--- Turns out this album had already come out on CD on the Guerilla label. It's obscure though (I guess so is the LP which I own).

Alcatraz - Live: Trockeneis zum Frühstück (Germany)
Alcatraz - No. 4 (Germany)
---Both of these are still in the CDRWL along with the second album

Anna Sjalve Tredje - Tussilago Fanfara (Sweden)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Another Roadside Attraction - s/t (Canada)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Aquarelle - s/t (Canada)
---Both Aquarelle albums were reissued by Belle Antique in 2010, though the sound isn't very good.

Artcane - Odyssee (France)
---See last year's list

Archimedes Badkar - s/t (Sweden)
Archimedes Badkar - II (Sweden)
---Still in the CDRWL. Watch for bootlegs!

Association P.C. - Earwax (Germany)
Association P.C. - Sun Rotation (Germany)
Association P.C. - Erna Morena (Germany)
Association P.C. - Mama Kuku (Germany)
Association P.C. - Rock Around the Cock (Germany)
---Mama Kuku received a quality reissue from the Promising label in 2008. The rest are still in the CDRWL.

Astre - Foresight (USA)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Asturcon - s/t (Spain)
---Perhaps unbelievably, this one received a legit CD reissue in 2004 from Doblon, a label I never heard from again.

Atman - Duchy Przodkow Mieszkaja w Drzewach (Poland)
---This one is in the main list. I need to feature it at some point.

Autumn Beeze - Hostbris (Sweden)
---The band reissued this as a CD-R and download but nothing in a durable format. That's too bad. Still in the CDRWL.

Avalanche - Perseverance Kills Our Game (Netherlands)
---See last year's list.

Avel Nevez - Servis Compris (France)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Baba Yaga - Collage (Germany)
Baba Yaga - Cycle (Germany)
---Still in the CDRWL.

---Reissued by Intuition in 2007

Bevis Frond - Bevis Through the Looking Glass (England)
---Reissued by Rubric in 2005

Bi Kyo Ran - Fairy Tale: Live Volume 1 (Japan)
---Looks like I removed this one even though I can't find a reissue. OK - will add back soon!

Black Sun Ensemble - s/t (Restless version) (USA)
---Well... it would appear I did the same thing here. WTH? So I will add it back! Now the first album from 1985 has been reissued on CD - just not the 1988 one. I really like this album, so it's odd I would have left it out. Oversight I guess.

Toto Blanke - Spider's Dance (Germany)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Wolfgang Bock - Cycles (Germany)
--- See last year's list

Bounty - s/t (USA)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Brave New World - Impressions on Reading Aldous Huxley (Germany)
---See last year's list. Lots of bootlegs still.

Cai - Mas Alla de Nuestras Mentes Diminutas (Spain)
---This one did get self-released by the band, but has been universally panned as a crappy effort. So I've left in the CDRWL.

Cal - s/t (Spain)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Chakra - s/t (USA)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Champignons - Premiere Capsule (Canada)

Circus - s/t (Switzerland)
Circus - Tearless, Fearless and Evenless (Switzerland)
--- And of course most folks would like to see "Movin' On" reissued again. The Decoder CD from 1990 is legit, and I do own it myself. But I've added into the CDRWL as many people missed out on it the first time.

Coma - Financial Tycoon (Denmark)
Coma - Amoc (Denmark)
---Still in the CDRWL.

---Still in the CDRWL.

Cybotron - s/t (Australia)
---Still in the CDRWL.

---Still in the CDRWL.

Franck Dervieux - Dimension M (Canada)
---See last year's list. This is the first title we've come across now (if reading top to bottom) that was reissued after being in both lists!

Dialect - s/t (Brazil)
---Still in the CDRWL. It sits in the main list only. They re-recorded the album in 2008, but the original remains unissued.

Docmec - Objet Non Identifie (Switzerland)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Dr. Dopo Jam - Crusin' at Midnite (Denmark)
---Still in the CDRWL. I should have listed Fat Dogs and Danishmen as well, since only a boot exists. Entree was reissued years ago by Karma.

Alain Eckert Quartet - s/t (France)
---This was just reissued in 2013 by Soleil Zeuhl. And the CD is fantastic with 31 minutes of live material that absolutely blows the doors off the original studio recording. It's a must!

Eden - s/t (Canada)
---Still in the CDRWL.

Edition Speciale - Aliquante (France)
Edition Speciale - Horizon Digital (France)
---Both reissued by Musea (2004 and 2007 respectively)

Eiderstellaire - s/t (France) K001 album
---Despite what "EVERYBODY" said, this was finally reissued by Soleil Zeuhl in 2011. I never believed the naysayers. You know what's funny? The same people who stomped all over threads insisting this would never get reissued, are the SAME PEOPLE saying the SAME THING about other albums on this list. Do they ever learn anything? Just shut up would ya?

Elektrikus - Electronic Mind Waves (Italy)
---Reissued by AMS in 2007.

Ellufant - s/t (Release Concert) (Netherlands)

Moira - Crazy Countdown (Germany)
Moira - s/t (aka Reise Nach Ixtlan) (Germany)
---Both still in the CDRWL.

Moolah - Woe Ye Demons Possessed (USA)
---Tough one here. The EM label of Japan supposedly reissued this legit in 2005. In recent years, I've heard that isn't the case. I bought it at the time, and I'm clinging on the hope that it is legit. Fortunately I have the original LP just in case.

Il Rovescio Della Medaglia - ..Giudizio Avrai (Italy)

Fantastic job there, Tom!

Most interesting.

Some of those cd ommissions are just undefensable( no such word methinks)/unconscionable. Beyond understanding, unless you put it down to uncertain times and no one wanting to take the risk.

I want to steal your words and put them down on a small forum - only 5 guys (and one,at that, is into Frankie Goes To Hollywood)- cos that's the kind of bastard I is.

Is that okay by you?

Regarding Achim Reichel/A.R. & Machines, both Echo and ARIV were indeed reissued together as a double CD set several years ago. Not sure of the label, I'm not at home right now, but I have it at home and I believe it's a legit reissue.

Hi Anon - I know of which one you speak of. On New Amos. Unfortunately it's a bootleg. :-(
