DCD Remasters Launch Date Confirmation

The news many of us have been waiting for... not yet from 4AD, but from Japan.

Finally, release information about the DCD remasters...

[/url]http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/list_from_code_banner.html?key=110362[url]

They are going to be available from May as Hybrid Super Audio CD (meaning they will play on regular CD players too), and in cardboard sleeves. Regular CDs (UK release on 4AD?) will be available. There will be a separate SACD, but no separate CD, for Garden of Arcane Delights.

No images yet, but if anyone remembers the Cocteaus Japanese releases they should be nice.

No news yet from 4AD... it's expected in the next couple of weeks, and a box set is tbc.

More information should come to light soon...

April sounds very promising. Hopefully we won't have to wait for Brendan's album for too long after the DCD release. But I am a little bit concerned that there is nothing from 4AD, yet... I mean, normally, people would advertise something like this in advance... hmmmm...

4AD for DCD's and Brendan's album, yes.

The press release from 4AD is due soon. They were caught off guard by the Japanese releases being advertised early.

As you know, the DCD remasters were issued with 4AD catalogue numbers for 2007 release, and there were delays over remastering the first album and re-doing the sleeves.

Their non-appearance was what messed up the 4AD catalogue numbers last year.

there are some upcoming dcd releases on amazon.de. for example a cd-version of "garden of the arcane delights".
maybe we can hope for other unreleased material. I cannot imagine a cd version for that EP if there's also a remaster for "dead can dance" which includes the 4 tracks from gotad.


Label: WEA Japan

Amazon have jumped the gun a bit on this - as has HMV.com too

As things stand, for 4AD, there's no release date, though that should happen soon.

There's definitely no seperate 'Garden Of The Arcane Delights' on CD - it's just an SACD - but is added to the Dead Can Dance album of the same name.

Hope that clears things up!

I emailed 4AD about the remastered CDs, SACD-hybrid, etc. and Steve Webbon gave me this reply:

>Nice to see they have a release date for these albums on Beggars
>Banquet too - that's more than I have! We're looking at early June

>The releases will be made in Japan and are in mini vinyl paper

I also asked about Brendan's new solo album and he replied:
>Brendan's album has been due for years so I wouldn't hold your breath!


Hope this helps.

Brendan wrote me a message and has recently responded publiclly to this on his myspace blog. The album is due to late 2008/early 2009. I think you can rely on his statement.

Hello everyone it’s been a wile since I posted here, does anyone know what on earth is going on with the DCD SACD re-masters box set?
The release date was supposed to be on the 30th June but everywhere on-line says it's unavailable out of stock or they now have completely different release dates.
I pre ordered one ages ago from HMV, they say they have it on order and the box sets will now arrive on the 14th of July!

Everywhere seems to have a different story Play.com says it will be available on the 7th of June!

The 4ad website also says they are out of stock!!

Furthermore I have read on some websites that only 1,500 will be made available worldwide! So now I don't know if I will get a set or not.

Can anyone here shed any light on this very confusing situation?

If the set is simply delayed why not just say so.

Thanks in advance if anyone can tell me anything about the situation.

As you can see in this topic http://lisagerrard.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=20696 the box-set has already been dispatched to a lot of the people who ordered it. In fact I got mine delivered last week.

I do hope for you that HMV really delivers it to you from the 14th of July, as I understand it already is sold out at 4AD and only suppliers that have it on stock are able to sell it now...

But if you search around the net there are still places that got the box in stock, like http://www.highfidelitydiscs.nl/customer/search.php?substring=dead+can+dance...

good luck, the SA-CD's are worth it, even on my regular CD-player the sound is really amazing!

Thank you very much for the info, I really hope I haven't missed the boat I did pre order one months ago!
HMV did say they have them on special order with the supplier but I don't know if that means I will get a copy :cry:

Cheers for the link I will check that out :wink:

there's more news over here - looks like we've two threads on the same subject!

http://www.lisagerrard.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=20696

Your best luck may be over at The Netherlands - the box set has been released, and there's no more stock in the 4AD warehouse - but there was a lot of stock sent over there.

However, regular UK shops haven't shipped their stock yet - they're running a bit later than everyone else - so there's a slim chance that HMV will be shipping late.

Basically, I'd take it that anywhere that doesn't have them available now, wont get stock at a later date - however, anyone that is selling them, should have some stock.
