if you go to SHADES OF RHYTHM's myspace page, they mention that all their back catalogue is coming out on Finger Licking Records (as they are now under the name of Drumattic Twins and have many releases on their label)

In business, as I've discovered, you should never take half measures, if you're going to do something then do it to the best of your ability and invest what is needed to give your business its optimum potential. If then it turns out not to be successful then at least you know you did all you could. If ZTT take the half measure approach on the re-releases then expect the reissues to come and go with little fuss.

The only way to achieve the maximum potential is to release Outpost as well as the other albums. A large percentage of people who bought Ex:el and Don Solaris probably aren't aware of Outposts existence. This is an opportunity to sell 808s original fanbase the music that has been hidden for years due to lack of marketing and awareness, and to finally give 808 some recognition for nearly 20 years as a band, please don't screw it up this time.

Good to see that work has been picked up again, it's been two years since we completed our compiling work. Maybe to update the first posting of this thread: As far as I understand The North At Its Heights and Outpost Transmission have been shelved, so it's "only" going to be 90, ex:el, gorgeous & don solaris. Correct?

Blimey, I was sort of hoping we could do some 'quality control', just because ZTT are notorious with errors and misprints in tracklistings. But if it's already cast in concrete, let's be surprised then! Be prepared for the moaning ;)

Let's get some standard moaning templates ready:

"Why did they put {enter track name} on when {enter track name} is miles better?"

"{enter track name} should definitely have been included."

"It's a shame that the {enter mix name} mix of {enter track name} wasn't included"
