It looks like there was a lot of ******* around with the track order for US releases (due to some contentious lyrics) and some alternate mixes of tracks (which I already have). From a bit of research it doesn't look like there was any particular input from Adam Ant himself though.
Oh dear - I may be talking rubbish.

Dirk was (and still is) my favourite album of all time. When I was a kid I saw the American version at a record fair and bought it as it seemed different and I didn't know anything about it. On playing it, it sounded rubbish and I was told it was a re-recording, but I never looked into the details. I was under the impression that Marco had recorded all the guitar parts for that release.

I do however remember a singe of Physical having a reference to DoIt and it being re-recorded. Same with CarTrouble, so I guess I put 2 and 2 together and made 11.

"Eat your heart out Do-It" was quite a bitter little comment because (IIRC) he'd had a spat with them and was getting successful after they'd parted ways.

Pretty sure the American version of Dirk was chopped to bits and partially remixed but it wasn't a re-recording.

You're right though - it's the best album ever made

Paul Di'Anno (the first Iron Maiden singer) has rerecorded most of the songs from the first two Maiden albums on his album The Classics - The Maiden Years.

Twisted Sister rerecorded their 'Stay Hungry' album, as they thought the original production wasn't heavy enough. This was with the orignal line up.

Motorhead also rerecorded their Orgasmatron album. The was with the current line up

Though not an entire ablum, Kiss recently rerecorded some of their classics with their current line up.

Another one. Ten Benson re-recorded an albums-worth of their tracks for a 'one take' live album (Danger of Deaf), which is a ridiculously epically loud record.

The Associates recorded two significantly different versions of The Affectionate Punch album.
Quote:
From Wikipedia
The album was remixed and re-released 1982 by order of the Associates new record company Warners. The remixed record retained all the old tracks but were given typical 80's production values such as new synthesizers and Billy Mackenzie re-recorded some vocals. Both Mackenzie and Rankine expressed distaste with the results. For years this was the only version available on compact disc as the master tapes for the original had been lost. However a duplicate was found and the album was reissued by Virgin in 2005.
The band Cracker rerecorded a best of album to head off their former label, Virgin, for putting one out.

Both well worth picking up if you like the originals.

Edit: they also played Hup live in Birmingham last December and released that on CD and DVD so Hup was re-released twice in the space of 12 months.

Didn't the reformed Spandau Ballet put out an album of re-recorded versions of their greatest hits last year? I think it was called 'One More Time'.

10-year bump!

(Didn't think it was this old!)

I already have the DTS/5.1 reissues for Depeche Mode and REM - excellent they are, too. But I recently heard the REM albums in HD-Audio and they sound much better, even on my modest setup.

I've bumped this thread and re-edited the original post. Any re-issues/remasters/5.1 albums you'd consider essential ? And any live sets that have blown you away with their audio?
