Roxette re-releases as ecopacks?

The official webshop on Roxette.se has listed Roxette 2009 re-releases as “ecopacks”.

My comment: I do not really know what it means, but I have seen some “eco packs” editions released here in Poland by Sony BMG. It looks almost like a cardboard single and, yes, there is no booklet. I do hope EMI Music means something different with this term.

Swedish shops list Roxette re-releases.

The most important Swedish e-shops put Roxette 2009 re-releases on their lists.

The only one which delivers to every country in the world is Bengans.se and re-releases cost 79SEK / 7.90€ / 11.22$. CDON.com got all the albums for 79SEK / 8.95€ and Megastore.se for only 69SEK / 7€. Unfortunately, these two last shops deliver only to the chosen countries.

On the other hand, if you want to buy Roxette orignal releases very cheap and you are Swedish citizen, there is also a chance. Ginza.se has started sale 29SEK for “Pearls of passion”, “Look sharp!”, “Joyride” and “Crash!Boom!Bang!” and Tourism for 49SEK.

“Gessle over Europe” – DELAYED!

fskab18 Unfortunately, “Gessle over Europe” has been delayed to the end of October due to problems with German video regulations. Apparently Jonas Åkerlund’s videos (director’s cut – “Kix” and “Do you wanna be my babe?”) are too much for Germany. They demand an 18 year old age limit on the CD/DVD. It seems like the premier of “Gessle over Europe” will take place just after Night of the Proms tour start.

Updated on August 29: Thanks Kristen we know how the German “parental advisory” logo will look like.

Per’s comment on re-releases.

The reason why EMI is re-releasing and re-mastering all the Rox albums is because they are out of print in some territories. Also, the sound was not up to date. Some albums are really old, folks! So… it’s not EMI’s intention (or Roxette’s for that matter) to make these albums “collector items” or fill them with demos and unreleased stuff. We’ll find other ways to do that, trust me.

Cheers, P.
