Pet Shop Boys announce more reissues: Please, Actually & Introspective

2001 ‘Further Listening’ sets newly remastered • plus vinyl releases

Pet Shop Boys continue with their ‘Catalogue’ reissue campaign, this time going right back to the beginning and reissuing their first three albums, Please, Actually and Introspective.

Each release will feature brand new remasters of the original albums and the 2001 ‘Further listening’ albums which feature demos, remixes, bonus tracks. In other words, these are the same as the 2001 editions, save for the remastering.

But those editions were very good indeed, and so if you simply didn’t get around to buying them at the time (they’ve long been out of print) then it’s a no-brainer to pick these up.

All three albums (remix album Disco isn’t included) are available two-CD editions with the bonus tracks and superb Farrow-designed booklets which features fantastic interviews and sleeve notes. Remastered vinyl is also available, buy that’s album-only with no bonus material.

These reissues of Please, Actually and Introspective are all due for release on 2 March 2018.

Would welcome analysis comparing the new reissues to the prior ones (sound quality).

Michael

All I can say is that the vinyl remasters sound awesome, compared to the old ones, fantastic sound. And I have listened to them on an expensive system.

Stefano

2018 version It’s much better. Just give a listening to the streaming available on iTunes or Spotify

Carl Myerscough

No sign of any exclusive art prints at HMV this time.
How stupid is that? They issue them for Nightlife, Release and Fundamental in July 2017, and then Yes and Elysium in October, but then don’t issue any prints for Please, Actually and Introspective. What’s the point in offering fans something nice and then not continuing the set?
I’m not happy. :-(

Claudio

I think PSB had forgotten “Relentless” CD…

Neil

They have forgotten a hell of a lot more than that. Adding a 3rd disc to these with remixes would have made more sense but they are clearly not interested in reissuing mixes done by others.

Michael

The whole concept of these reissues, is to show music by the Pet Shop Boys, and NOT by any third parties. Like it or not ! But they have been very clear from the start about this.

SimonP

If that is the case then why is the Extended Dance Mix of Always On My Mind on disc 2 of Actually, rather than the 5:55 Remix from the other 12″? The latter remix was done by Phil Harding and the PSBs, the former by Julian Mendelsohn.

Michael

The Phil Harding mix was done sorely by him, they had no input into that, do they did with the dub mix. The collaborated with Julian Mendelssohn on the ” The extended dance version. He confirms that in an interview, on the pet shop boys community forum.

Simon

Why is the 10′ version of WEG not on the Please FL disc?(its not a 3rd party remix)

Michael

Its a mistake that its not on the original issue from 2001, they said that themselves. They could have included in the 2018 edition, but that would”force” people to buy it for that mix only, so maybe that’s why they didn’t include this time around.

Neil

It’s on this https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-Story-25-Years-Of-Hits/release/1680209 and can be picked up for a paltry sum.

Charles

Thanks Neil for that info! Picked up a copy.

Richard Rodriguez

What is the difference with the previous edition? none … it’s just Remaster There are no more remixes … I think they should have included a 3rd CD or it’s like the Fleetwood Box Mac – Tango In The Night that was worth buying because it included All Remixes of each Hit and Pet Shop Boys in each Album has many Hits and Many Remixes

2wicky

re. the prices for the bundle of all 3 reissues on pledgemusic:
I can see that the price for US customers is $30, for European customers it’s GBP 32.97 (around 37 Euros) – these are in fact the new ‘Further Listening’ reissues, however I can’t see if postage would be included for European orders or not.

Gregory

From what I understand in that statement from the official PSB site (“Each release will feature brand new remasters of the original albums and the 2001 ‘Further listening’ albums which feature demos, remixes, bonus tracks”), only the main album on Disc 1 will be remastered in this set. Extra stuff on disc 2 might remain unchanged…

Glenn

Saw these ~10 minute clips on YouTube (PSB discuss the recent Nightlife/Release/Fundamental reissues):

LOIS

Thank PET SHOP BOYS.
I am very happy with these new reissues Deluxe 2cd PET SHOP BOYS.
New master 2018 (better sound than 2001).
The prices of the 2001 editions are too high. Please, Actually & Introspective overpriced, new master 2018 ???. Very very happy.
I BUY REISSUES : PLEASE, ACTUALLY , INTROSPECTIVE .
Those who are selling 2001 expensive edition (sous blisters) is sad that the new edition is 2018.

I dream of a bonus of 1 cd with instrumental rarities brand.

Charlie D

My only guesses and opinions on re-remastering is this. vinyl wasn’t or hadn’t ‘come back’ back in 2001, so doing this project was an excuse to remaster these for vinyl.
also, didn’t legalities and ownership change from EMI since 2001?
Perhaps they were forced to ‘brickwall’ more than they’d liked but execs insisted, and that’s not as in-vogue anymore so they had more flexibility to choose a remaster-er this time, or, master as they saw more fit if some kind of mechanical rights resorted back to them.

Pete

Not sure if this is a discovery on my part or me just catching up but………

Having pre-ordered from Amazon, all three are available to download in full via Amazon Music. Nice to get them more than 2 months early.

Neil

They are the 2001 remasters not the 2018 ones.

Tracey Spivey

I grabbed these 3 re-re-issues for approx $54 (including shipping to the USA) from Amazon.ca. Not a horrible price.

Simon

It’s a shame the DJ International remixes of It’s Alright remain unreleased (to my knowledge) on cd

John D

They were on a 3″ euro cd single, which I stupidly sold for peanuts a few years back!

Don Balfour

*******Introspective / Further Listening 1988-1989 [Disc 2]*****
If you have bought the original 2001 version there was a mastering flaw of “”Don Juan (Disco Mix)”” at 4:51 where a single beat is repeated twice, and “”Your Funny Uncle”” the beginning of the vocal goes from left side to stereo…
I hope they will fix this ….

Mark Dynamix

Dan, this was not a mastering error. It was an edit choice made on the 12″ mix of Don Juan, and also appears on the b-side of the 12″ of Domino Dancing. Part of the original extended version, not a mistake on the Further Listening cd.

Don Balfour

Thanks for the info

Gregory

If the new remasters sound good, I may buy the digital version of the albums I already own in Further Listening form. But I don’t see any benefit in purchasing the physical format I already have as only the musical content is (not that much) different.
The down side of the collector’s life is that every new purchase of a given musical work makes the old one fall into disuse. And I hate that. With those Further Listening reissues, it’s the worse case scenario: the 2001 edition and the 2017 one look exactly the same in every way! Except for a catalog number and a mastering credit maybe.
If you purchase the new reissues, you can virtually toss the original ones here. That’s not an option for me. I hate collecting for the sole sake of collecting. There has to be extra stuff on the new edition. A slightly better sound is ok for a download. Not a good argument for a physical purchase…

Gareth Pugh

My own strategy (!) at the moment is I’ll buy the 2018 vinyl remasters of these next two waves as I’ve never owned their albums on vinyl before and this year’s five sounded great to my non-expert ears. I’ll hang fire on replacing my 2001 original FL CDs until the box set, if it materialises; then if there is no further new material/rarities in that, I can tell myself I’m still getting something technically different when I buy it! Am guessing the last wave (Behaviour/Very/Bilingual) will be circa June?

Mark

I’m in for all of them. New remastering seems very good on the more resent albums. If they are anything to go by the rest should be excellent as well. My 2001 versions are very worn after 16 years of heavy play, so even if they are only marginally better it will be worth having a new set.

Paul ,
Will you be reviewing all of these? I’m sure we’d all love to see a review of the packaging and content.

Wes

I have a couple of the originals– US vinyl pressings– that are pretty good… BUT the last release I bought from PSB (Super) was issued in the USA by The Concord Music Group and they are well known for the horrid quality of their vinyl releases– true craptastic quality and amazing consistent about it. Wonder who pressed the EU versions– hopefully not GZ vinyl.

Steveasian

Bought PSB Bundle ( Further Listening: Please, Actually & Introspective) from PledgeMusic for $30.00 Plus $10.52 shipping, amounting to $40.52 , shipped to United States. So far, that’s the best deal.

Peter Yarrow

I think I’m going to cancel my Amazon order and go for the Pledge deal

Joe

Pity their Postage is high almost £14 which brings it in line with Amazon :(

auteur55

That’s $10.00 for each reissue. Which is a crazy good deal. Are we sure the bundle is not single CD’s and is indeed the 2 disc. Seems too good of a deal to me.

Mark Jensen

I’ll buy these cd’s because I don’t already own the further listening versions. I am pretty sure the new cd’s of the actual albums will not sound better than the original cd’s, which was sometimes the case with the most recent further listening releases of later material. To my ears the 2017 remastered cd of Elysium is much better than the 2011 cd, but the 2009 cd of Yes sounds a little better than the 2017 Yes cd. Overall, I also slightly prefer the 2017 remasters of Nightlife, Release, and Fundamental over the original cd’s. But these were all more modern, fairly compressed cd’s in the original form. The original 80’s album cd’s are much better, and I very much doubt that the new remasters will beat them.

I’m also excited about the Introspective vinyl, as I don’t have that one on vinyl. I’m undecided on getting new vinyl versions of Please and Actually, just because I own original versions in pretty good condition. So far I have purchased all the new vinyl versions from 2017 except for Elysium (for the same reason – I’m happy with the 2011 double vinyl version I already had) and they all sound very good to me – better than the new or original cd versions, I think.

CJ

I’m going to wait until someone does a comparison on the sound before I buy. I love PSB, and I loved the original re-issues, but I can’t just buy up front atthis point if it’s going to turn out the sound is only a minor improvement. But if there really is increased clarity and range, then I’m on them.

I would like a proper, mastered release of all the Closer to Heaven demos that have leaked (and any that haven’t leaked if there are any). I love many of those songs, and to get them in good, clear quality, even in demo form, would be excellent.

I remember there was also a rumor at one point back in the 90’s that they had recorded a “secret” album called “Obituary” to be released after they had both died. Does anyone know if there is actually any truth to that, or if it was just another silly internet rumor?

Steve Pafford

Not true I’m afraid. However, they do have an unreleased albums worth of material from 983/84 that could possibly be a bonus when they put the complete box out: http://stevepafford.com/?s=pet+shop+boys&post_type=post

Gareth Pugh

‘Posthumously’ I think it was called, but I don’t think anything was seriously recorded or exists as such. It was mentioned as a ‘we should…’ by Neil in fairly jokey mood in Smash Hits – possibly around the time of Behaviour?

Matt Wells

only a technical point but when we come to look back on these remasters in say 5 years and they say 2018 remastered version, they were in fact actually ‘remastered’ in 2017, the release date shouldn’t be the guide for the remaster date should it?

daveid76

Why not? It’s the year it comes out that’s important. Many albums are recorded the year before they come out anyway. It would only matter if, say, a track was remastered in say 2015 but wasn’t released for another 5-10 years.

Ian

Anyone know if the Pledge Music versions are same, packaging-wise, as the in-store/Amazon ones? They have the CD versions for under £33 for all 3, and all 3 vinyls for just £37.50!

colinthebruce

I’m still holding off from buying all these new vinyls (though I did buy Nightlife). This is because I am hoping they will box them all together and put them in some, er, super, well designed box set. Come on guys, you know thats what you want to do. Then you could stick in some extra vinyls of the b sides etc. So I still need to hold off meantime.

Steen Hansen

Check out this link:
http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/list?artist=Pet+shop+boys&album=

It’s very clear that if you want great dynamic sounding cds you have to stick with the original releases from 1986, 1987 and 1988. As for the further listening portions they were actually already heavily compressed in 2001, so I’m with Neil on this one: they will probably just get even louder.

mike

Bought the first 4 original cds this month for barely a fiver. Combats loudness problems!

Craig Hedges

Paul

Would you be able to do a feature on the process of remastering? Explaining exactly what happens when an album is remastered. It seems to have become this magical word that the record companies latched onto in the ’90s and they now if they release an old album and put that word on the cover they know it will sell. When CDs took off in the 80s record companies rushed to put out album titles so they did a straight dump of the old albums using the master for vinyl onto cd. These cd’s sounded thin and tinny, get a first release of Jarre’s 70s albums on cd and compare to the vinyl. Music buyers started to notice that that cd wasn’t the great wonder we’d been conned into but the record companies had another trick up their sleeves “Lets make the CDs sound like vinyl!” And hey presto remastering was born. I have up to 3 copies of albums on cd because thy have been remastered over and over. So Paul could you provide a report perhaps going to a remastering session, getting some photos and a full break down and explain the pro and cons, especially the cons.

memoryboy

Reading these comments, I feel the need to say something here regarding whether to buy the 2001 Reissues again… I personally feel very strongly that it is worth it to re-buy the first six remastered/reissued “Further Listening” albums again. Despite what Neil has said.

The recent ‘Further Listening’ albums that were released (Nightlife, Release, Fundamental, Yes, Elysium), if you have heard them, you would agree the remastered sound is excellent. No compression, sounds separated, the dynamics are excellent.

Somehow they were able to manage to improve the sound on some fairly recent albums (Yes, Elysium) even. It’s just a complete improvement overall. Including the extra’s on the bonus discs sound excellent. I am really enjoying the recent reissues. I expect the next batch this upcoming year to sound just as amazing. This might be the first time those early albums and extras will be properly remastered. I am beyond excited. I think there is a reson they are re-issuing these first six albums again with new Remastering besides just to re-release them. The sound is quite an improvement.

My suggestion is that you have already bought the first ix albums back in 2001, like myself, I would suggest you buys these new remasters, they are such an improvement.

And of course for those of you who never did purchase those ‘Further Listening’ reissues back in 2001, be sure to buys all of these. The improved sound quality alone is worth the purchase. Not to mention the extra’s, the booklets and photos with notes on each album and track by Chris and Neil. This is how all my favorite artists should be reissuing their albums.

David Smith

Could not agree more

Ern

Totally agree with what memoryboy said.
The 5 reissues so far have sounded amazing and I’m sure the next batch will be just as good.

SimonP

@memoryboy: You keep saying they are improved, as if you have already heard them. Have you?

Warren Mason

No US pre order…? Come on!

Dave V

I have the 2001 CDs and won’t be buying these ones … but as pointed out, if you don’t have the 2001 discs, these are a no brainer. The early ones have a much better selection of remixes than the recent releases of Yes, Elysium and what-not. Frankly, those Further Listening discs were a great disappointment because of the lack of remixes.

Aevion

This was most likely due to the fact that there weren’t many remixes created by the Boys at that point (which is the strict criteria for the Further Listening series), rather they were predominantly third-party mixes.

It would be great to have some of the better remixes on all of these sets, but alas their rules are absolute. Meanwhile I’m dreaming of a Further Listening compilation for these remixes….

Michael

Paul, didn’t you mention there might be a box set of the entire Further Listening series?

Griffin

A bit disappointed! If they are “re-visiting” these then why not giving us the fans what we deserve a 3 or 4 CD set each album. If the 2001 ones were brick walled or remasters didn’t sound that good please re-do them. And include Disco as well with expanded disc. They can have my money, just give me/us what I/we want. I hope it’s not too late. They waited 16/17 years to give us the “same” again. The next time when they are re-re-visiting again to give me all the mixes. I’m afraid I might be passed away. So they can’t get my money & I couldn’t get hold of all the mixes.

Benjamin Adams

Of course Disco, the one I want most in a clean vinyl copy, isn’t included. C’est la vie.

Alex Jennings

They need to release albums on vinyl that are super hard to find or super pricey! Alternative would be fabulous!!

Ern

Just take my money now.

Thank you again Paul. This post perked up my day.

Magnetic Ham Sandwich

I suppose these 3 will come with 12″ art prints in HMV just like the five albums we’ve had this year. Does anyone know for sure yet? That’s annoying because I don’t want to have to buy these 3 Further Listening albums a second time just to get the art prints. I want the art prints, but I still have all my original 2001 Further Listening albums. If only they’d make the art prints available separately…..

Mr David Barker

Thanks Paul for all these updates,and great information about cd’s box sets,ect really appreciate all the info and your e-mails

Paul Spurgeon

Introspective was the first album I was given as a gift and was hooked from then onwards.

Dom

Unreleased songs rather than tracks that should be

Dom

Not being the worlds best archivist, and having moved several times since 2001, I’ll be picking these up to save tracking down my earlier purchases which seem to have vanished. Shame they didn’t add the brilliant Bounce to Introspective as they’ve evidently got over their reluctance to release previously unreleased tracks on the FL discs. I’d love to see a disc compiling some of their unreleased third party remixes

Stevie B

… and I My Lord, May I Say Nothing?

Jan

John Lewis did a version of Introspective a few years ago with the CD in a card sleeve. I’ll need to check what remaster that was.

Auntie Sabrina

The CDs are £11.99 plus a minimum £1.95 UK postage from petshopboysshop.co.uk

elliott buckingham

wish the non psb remixes were included the 12″ rent was superb and the longer version of devices blows away the introspective version

Michael Cuthbert

I will be buying or re-buying these for sure.
My only gripe…..I just wish all the 2nd discs had all the single 45″ mixes from said albums.
I was hoping that when these were announced a few months back they would been rectified this “glitch”.
Sigh!

Rob

Wasn’t So Hard on Introspective? or am I wrong?

Jan

Wrong. Behaviour.

Greg

Why not a re-issue of “Disco”. I have been waiting for that for years and years. That is my favorite release from PSB.

daz

the reason Disco (s) are not being re-released ( yet) is because they contain 3rds party remixes the further listenings have AFAIK only contain PSB material/remixes and Behaviour/Very etc will follow

O(+> Peter B

Disco is my favourite PSB album. It’s unfortunate that the reissue of Please does not include the Shep Pettibone Mastermix of Opportunites – this is where a reissue of Disco would come in handy, to round up 12″ versions missing from Please. That being said, I’m glad that Please is being reissued again, just couldn’t afford it first time around.

Dave W

Anyone else disappointed that Disco is being ignored?

Rick

Good grief, how many times can something be reissued. I have the 2001 releases and have no problems with how they sound. I am actually more annoyed that vinyl reissues of Behaviour, Very and Bilingual have been skipped. It is a PAIN to find vinyl of those albums (esp in the states). Also, no vinyl reissues of the Disco collections or b-sides collections.

Michael

Will there be a large set with all the CD’s at the End of the reissue campaign?

Francis

I have the original 2001 editions but am wondering if these re-releases will have the large plastic jewel case and slipcase sleeve like the other three recent editions. If they do, I may buy these so they all match and sell the others which are in pristine condition and like new (if anyone will be interested? – wink wink).

Thank you Paul for the information. As the original 2001 expanded editions were only 2CD Sets I might as well stick with them. I know the new reissues are apparently remastered but I doubt I will notice much more with regard the sound quality, my ears being age 53 (LOL), unless you can confirm otherwise.

Sometimes you astound me :)

Well worth a read, particularly whilst listening to the track.
