Skyscraping has been out of print for ages so it’s nice to see it back in print. No big surprises on the bonus disc though. Zillionaire has been reissued a couple of times now…


Add to me to the Zillionaire queue. The 7″/UK Single mix of How To Be A Millionaire needs to be on an ABC CD!


A pointless reissue. HTAZ would’ve been a better choice.


AFAIK, there’s a single version for “Stranger things” and two Singles Remixes for “Rolling sevens”, with a duration of 3’30” and 4’30”, and one of these and the former are sadly missing.
All in all, fine if you don’t have the CD-Singles, but otherwise the main interest here is the Alternate Version, that was on the 10″ single of “Skyscraping”.


I quite like this album and never picked up all the singles, so this one’s for me alone, I guess. Thanks for the tip!

That’s… fine, but how about a How To Be A Zillionaire 2CD? There are at least six remixes/b-sides/edits still unreleased on CD, and half of the singles material that is on CD is spread across VA compilations, Japanese box sets, and other nooks and crannies. I mean, Alphabet City could use the same treatment.


Or “Abracadabra”, that was only re-released with extra tracks digitally and not on CD!

Northworld issued a remastered version of “Abracadabra” last year, with 5 bonus tracks. There’s no mention within the artwork that it’s remastered but listening to it, it clearly is. The label however did mess up by including Say It (The Abracadabra Mix) as one of the bonus tracks as this is the same as the album version.


where are the bonus tracks on abracadabra listed? i only see the regualar album : http://www.grooves-inc.com/abc-abracadabra-northworld-cd-album-pZZa1-1897648643.html


I wasn’t overly impressed with this album when it was first released so I’m going to give this a swerve. No major discoveries from the vaults either, it would seem….


another reissue i dont get. fine cd but not in need of reissue and nothing new either. Cherry Pop, there are at least ooh 2000 cd’s that spring to mind to spend time on a reissue!
