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.

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.

Roxette albums to be rereleased on September 30th

According to EMI Sweden the remastered Roxette albums will be released on September 30th. The albums come with bonus tracks and a brand new booklet. So far the date is not confirmed by Per Gessle or EMI, we’re referring to the information EMI Sweden is giving on their homepage. So this could also only be the release date for the remastered albums in Sweden.
