Simply Red schedule archive releases
Simply Red have scheduled a set of five CD and Blu-Ray / DVD releases via Edsel Records.
Due for release on 30th June, they comprise Home (original release 2003, now a 3CD + DVD set), Simplified (2005, now 2CD + DVD), Stay (2007, now 2CD + DVD), Home Live In Sicily (2003, now Blu-Ray + DVD + 2CD), and Cuba! (2005, now Blu-Ray + DVD + 2CD).
The reissue of Home comes with seven radio edits of tracks in addition to the original eleven-song album, plus a CD of remixes, and a further CD of an in-concert performance, Live At Ronnie Scott’s. The DVD features an interview with Mick Hucknall and Mark Goodier filmed in March 2014, bespoke promo videos, two contemporary BBC TV performances and other bonus features, and new sleevenotes, all housed in a casebound book package.
The original twelve-track Simlpified is enhanced and augmented with a disc of remixes, six tracks recorded live in Cuba, as well as the bonus DVD with more interview footage, BBC TV performances and promo videos, as does the new version of Stay.
Two in-concert performances – Home Live In Sicily and Cuba! Originally filmed in HD, both sets feature the concerts on Blu-Ray for the first time, as well as on DVD and on two CDs. Both casebound book sets feature bonus documentaries about the filming of the concerts, plus other features.
