Just Curious…… To Paul, Mick Hucknall — decent shout. They loved soul music, played well live without need for excess electronic trickery, wrote very good soulful pop songs and had a very respected musician friendly manager now the head of a major hifi cable maker Ecosse…. Thanks for the heads-up on the album, Paul. Wet Wet Wet have officially released the 30th Anniversary Edition of their debut album Popped In Souled Out which originally launched in 1987. Fans now have the opportunity to take a trip back in time as this iconic album is now available in the form of a, and. The was the album post Nick Heyward and was one of my favourite albums in 1984.
The law of supply and demand has always existed. Sound guys too from band to management. Yes, they have sold many Pop records but are they Pop voices? Amazingly, thirty years have passed since the initial release of the Popped in, Souled Out album. I expect it will sell less than Tango or Flowers in the Dirt. I do not use words like crap or rubbish, when I write on here.
As for the best 3 pop voices from this country, please…. Where is Stevie Wonder, Jackson Browne etc,etc. A while back we had that discussion on this site when the Nick Kamen 2cd came out. However; be great to hear more raw versions of some of these on the extras. Fans now have the opportunity to take a trip back in time as this iconic album is now available in the form of a , and. The comment from the band is funny, because to be honest, when you listen to some of the other mixes released back then and included on this box, some are crap. Who knows, I may end up the same as you….
Most of the Deal Alerts are for albums that no-one wants to buy. If they carry on like this, then some bean-counter at the few record companies left will say enough is enough and that regrettably will be the end of it. Altogether, the packaging for this 30 th anniversary edition for the Popped In, Souled Out album from is rather impressive. If it drops below £50 I am in. But the price will be controlled by whichever website has it cheapest, or has too many in stock ,and the rest will follow. I wonder what price Sgt Peppers will be in 6 months time, or even in 6 weeks time.
A very welcome release in my book. Live At Capital Radio 3. I lie Wet Wet Wet and 80s pop, but to me it´s strange that bigger artistst in terms oif sales and fanbase get overlooked when it comes to the deluxe treatmaent. The band is composed of Graeme Clark bass, vocals , Tommy Cunningham drums, vocals , and Neil Mitchell keyboards, vocals. When are the serious artists going to re-release, Deluxe albums.
Who knows, anyway, best wishes to you, and keep up the good work. The Popped In Souled Out super deluxe edition will be released on 22 September 2017. The new 2017 release of the album Popped in, Souled Out from Wet Wet Wet includes a lot more than just the original release. A fifth, unofficial member, Graeme Duffin lead guitar, vocals , has been with them since 1983. The sessions lacked the pop sheen of the eventual hits but were far superior in my opinion Must admit I would be tempted to buy an extended version of that album if it was alone but there would have to be quite a price drop for me to consider buying a 5cd box. Glad I ordered it when the deal alert came out. I expect there will be a 2-disc version as the previous deluxe box set also had a completely separate 2-disc edition.
Sweet Little Mystery Live At Capital Radio 7. One of the things I love about this site is the lack of musical snobbery and that Paul looks at each release on its merits, understanding that it will certainly appeal to someone. At a time when synthpop and house house music were creeping into the charts, Wet Wet Wet eschewed 80s synthetic sheen for pop with soul. Scroll down for tour dates and ticket information below. Now its re-issued as a 5-disc box set. Rob — I am so glad I bother to read comments for groups that I am only vaguely interested in e. .
In fact, thanks for bringing that up. I am sorry but, these are super deluxe reissues are from bands that no-one ever liked. The Memphis sessions are of real interest to fans. W3 were not a manufactured bubblegum group, but payed their dues on the live circuit before hitting the big time, created their own organisation instead of signing away control to a major, and basically were 3 lads who could play their instruments and another with a very fine voice. To me neither are true Pop voices, they are not clean enough, both have that rasp of soul. Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight2.
They do what they do and people can take it or leave it. WetWetWet were pretty serious about what they did, they did it extremely successfully over a number of years and shifted a lot of units and were loved by many me included …what else do you need? Wet Wet Wet have serious heart in what they do. Live material from the period shows the Wets could really cut it live and had some great energy. But Nick Kamen they are not. Or could sing like him. Having been formed in 1982, made a name for themselves with one of the strongest Soul albums of the year 1987 entitled. Usually artists not considered pop acts.
