Duran Duran / Rio reissue reissued

The 2009 Rio reissue (pictured) is being re-released as a digipack

Duran Duran‘s classic 1982 album Rio is being made available again this summer as a two-CD deluxe edition.

The 2009 double-disc reissue was packaged as a deluxe 60-page ‘casebound book’ with textured sleeve and featured a well-balanced selection of bonus tracks which included the US album mixes of five tracks, original demos, non-album singles and B-sides and the various 12-inch mixes of the era. The new version maintains the track listing but will dispense with the book-style packaging, instead making do with a digipack presentation.

It was noted by some at the time that it was rather crass to have the words ‘Limited Edition’ spoil the aesthetic of the front cover, but at least it does seem to have genuinely been limited since this set has been out-of-print for a while.

Rio will be reissued on 22 June 2015. A one-CD remaster will also be made available.
