Post by graham » 03 Jan 2006 14:44

The original CD release of Gorgeous had some tracks from the Disco Disc included.

Femme deluxe and Purple Dust could both be added on for historical purposes, but if I'd to choose, I'd go for Purple Dust.

'later,

They both feature on the Japanese Forecast release so I'm not fussed if they appear. I would prefer the space be given to the two early mixes of 10 X 10.

I would just like to add that I love Purple Dust. In my mind the best of the Disco Disc extras. But the best of all the Gorgeous-era extra tracks that was floating around is the little gem Nbambi hiding away on the Plan 9 CD5. That is sweet. Don't forget that.

Still, it was a big mistake to have the 3 bonus tracks on Gorgeous CD. That is certainly the weakest spots on an album that is considered weak as it is. But on the other hand, the sequence of the tracks that are both on CD and LP are best on the CD!?!

I consider Gorgeous ALBUM to be the tracks of the LP (perfered in CD release sequence). And Gorgeous era extra tracks would then be what is on Disco Disc plus Nbambi, La Luz (Acid mix), Reaper Repo and Olympic 93. That and perhaps some era tracks of State To State.

Yep thats the promo mix, probably rivals the actual released version. I love Femme Deluxe and Purple Dust, if there's room get them both on! Also got to see La Luz included one of my fave 808 tracks.

La Luz HAS to be there!

Also you could try and put some unreleased mixes/tracks from each era :)

Two Fat ladies and a Duck is also a must have! :)

That one is Don Solaris era.

What we are trying to do here is to compile the perfect 70 min. of Gorgeous-era extras. As a bonus CD, along with the ordinary release.

Eventhough I have stated that the original CD bonus tracks (the latter 3) should be considered bonus disc material, it of course gives more room on the bonus disc to leave them on Gorgeous.

The bonus disc

Stormin Norman (if not on Gorgeous re-release)
Sexy Synthesizer (if not on Gorgeous re-release)
Femme Deluxe
Lemon
Purple Dust
Sexy Dancer (if not on Gorgeous re-release)
Nbambi
La Luz (Acid mix)
10 x 10 (one of the mixes on first promo)
Plan 9 (Choki Galaxy mix)
One In Ten (one of the alternative versions)
Time Bomb (promo mix)
Reaper Repo
Olympic 93

Not sure about the playing order. Should be optimised for continuity.

This is my selection, because it is Gorgeous bonus material. Simple.

Only thing is the 70 min. boundery. If space allows it tracks Freak/Insane Lover/Bombardin/Marathon could be supplied. If not, comprimise must be made. I guess One In Ten (remix), Time Bomb (remix), Reaper Repo and Olympic 93 are candidates to be left out.

It's more important to have the previously released vinyl only tracks and early promo mixes included.
The Japanese Forecast album isn't that hard to get a hold of.

Gorgeous extras must include:

Freak
Insane lover
1 in 10 (Forcable Lobotomy Mix)
10X10 (Original VOX Mix)
Alternative mixes of Timebomb and Reaper
