Reissue Talk #39

3CD deluxe • 3LP vinyl • Loads of bonus remixes

Neneh Cherry‘s debut album Raw Like Sushi is being reissued as multi-disc CD and vinyl sets for its 30th anniversary in January.

The 1989 album was actually 30 back in June, but such quibbles aside, it was an enormous success back in the day, spawning two top ten hits on both side of the Atlantic, including the best known single Buffalo Stance.

This seems to be a fairly ambitious reissue campaign with a 3LP vinyl super deluxe which includes the remastered album with two records of B-sides, remixes and extras and a 3CD set which adds more remixes. However, unless there’s been an error with the track listings, a close look reveals that ‘Kisses On The Wind’ B-side ‘Buffalo Blues’ is included on the 3LP set but not the 3CD package. Weird. Incidentally, original CD bonus tracks ‘My Bitch’ and ‘Heart (It’s A Demo)’ are retained, while the remixes from the end of the 1989 CD are moved to the other discs.

Also, the 3CD set is large format with a 48-page book, which might account for the eyebrow-raising cost. The 3LP set isn’t cheap either and again that comes with the book. As you can see the cover art has been reworked from the familiar photo on white background.

Single disc remastered CD and vinyl are also available for those who want it.

Raw Like Sushi will be reissued on 24 January 2020.
