Out of the Blue / Debbie Gibson 3CD+DVD deluxe edition

SDE Reader Rating

4.5

Cherry Red are to reissue American singer-songwriter Debbie Gibson‘s first album, Out of the Blue, as a 3CD+DVD deluxe edition.

The 1987 long-player was an enormous success, especially in America, where it peaked at number seven and spawned four top five singles, including the chart-topping ‘Foolish Beat’. The singles did well in the UK as well, with two top ten hits ‘Shake Your Love’ and ‘Foolish Beat’ and the almost top ten single ‘Only In My Dreams’ (#11 in the UK, #4 in the US).

The forthcoming reissue features 7 bonus versions of ‘Only in My Dreams’

An expanded Out of the Blue was part of Demon Music’s massive 13-disc We Could Be Together deluxe set from 2017 but this is the first opportunity to get it as a standalone product, and it looks fairly extensive. Everything Out of the Blue-related from that previous package is included on this new expanded set, except for ‘Shake Your Love [Luke Mornay Remix]’ and ‘Only In My Dreams ’98 [Club Mix]’ – but since neither of those were remixes from the original era, this is unlikely to be a problem for most.

The good news is this new 3CD+DVD package offers a lot more. There’s an enormous amount of original remixes, including dubs, bonus beats, ‘percapella’ etc. It looks pretty comprehensive, but will wait for SDE Debbie Gibson aficionados to either confirm or deny!

‘Foolish Beat’ topped the American singles chart

The DVD (NTSC, region-free) offers all five promo videos, Out Of The Blue: Live In Concert (the 1989 video release which looks like a repeat of what was on the second DVD in the Demon set) and Up Close And Personal an ‘interview special’.

More good news in that this is packaged as a digi-pak (like the Howard Jones sets) and not one of those insubstantial ‘capacity wallets’. The booklet includes a 2021 introduction written by Debbie. The label say that this is “the first in a series of Debbie Gibson reissues” so it’s looking like we can expect more like this, especially for Out of the Blue follow-up Electric Youth which was actually a bigger hit on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Out of the Blue 3CD+DVD deluxe edition will be released on 15 October 2021. Please rate this release at the top of the page!
