If Deluxe Versions of M Albums Were To Be Released...

Recommended Posts

If Madonna's albums went through the deluxe / remastered treatment, what do you think the additional track lists could be, or what would you want from them?

Obviously the bonus tracks on the first 3 reissues were disappointing, and I hope they all get a proper deluxe treatment.

For Erotica I would love to see some like this:

Tracks 1-13: Main album

14 - Justify My Love

15 - Rescue Me

16 - This Used to Be My Playground

17 - The Beast Within

Disc 2: (In no particular order)

Dear Father

You Are the One

Shame

Goodbye to Innocence

Get Over

Actions Speak Louder Than Words (Demo)

Thief of Hearts (Demo)

Erotica (Demo)

More demos and a selection of the best remixes including single / video versions (Fever Edit One).

Disc 3 - DVD

Official music videos

TV performances.

Nowadays, with so much leaked and all that, i'm more into remastered and 16:9 version of all her videos and most important performances. I'm sick of watching that blurred EY MTV performance, for example. I want it in full glory. And i want all the vids 16:9 and perfect and beautiful. At least on her YouTube channel.

They would never put "Justify My Love" or "This Used to Be My Playground" on Erotica. They don't belong on there especially JML which was released two years prior. It's not part of the album sessions at all.

I don't think Madonna is interested in bonus material at this point and while Warners can cash in, I doubt they'll do much while she's alive. It's the posthumous releases that usually exploit unreleased material, compilations overload etc.

Like a Prayer needs to be remastered. I never understood why Warner Bros just stopped at True Blue. It never made sense to me. I think they should've remastered that album and included some bonus tracks. Maybe 2 of Shep's remixes of Like a Prayer and Express Yourself. Supernatural would be a nice addition too, since it was a b-side. A new, expanded booklet with more pics from that fabulous Herb Ritts shoot would be great too!

Many deluxe versions of albums feature non-album singles from greatest hits albums etc, they just tag them onto the closest album era, so I personally wouldn't be surprised.

I was surprised TUTBMP wasn't included on Erotica. I thought it was going to be like LTT being on TB. I think it fits at the end of the album after Secret Garden. I also was surprised I'll Remember wasn't on Bedtime. I felt like it fit after Inside of Me. I was glad when DAD was included on American Life.

I think LTT and DAD both fit the albums they were included on. Whereas, TUTBMP and I'll Remember would've (in my opinion) felt out of place on Erotica and Bedtime Stories. Those songs were very pop, whereas both albums were more hip-hop/R&B.

This would have been heaven. They should repackage it with the B.A tour like Sony did with Michael Jackson's "Bad tour" for "Bad 25", that would be fantastic. It's a shame because LAP is in desperate need of a remaster but I don't think we're going to get it. Prince's album's were supposed to be remastered a few years back but we're still waiting, so I don't know what happened there.

Two of my favorite bands (Duran Duran and Depeche Mode) have released amazing reissues of their older albums which included a lot of bonus tracks and videos of their TV performances.

Just really disappointed and frustrated with M legendary status, she has never reissued any of her eighties and nineties albums after True Blue. Would love to somehow have her promo and performances from a particular era added on as a bonus with a reissue.

So many less popular artists do it and it's not an issue and makes some fans very happy!

Yes I have all the Depeche Mode reissues, I love them, and again, they included non-album singles on the closest studio album era, e.g. Shake the Disease = Black Celebration, Only When I Lose Myself = Ultra. Wish Madonna would do this!

A mistery of life. That's one of the reasons why Guy should go for good.

I'd like to see what they did with Pet Shop Boys albums.

Cd2 contained demos & unreleased tracks from 'that' particular album.

Would've been nice to have a remastered Like A Virgin album which included Groove, Gambler & Crazy For You

I found them fitting in. When I first heard Bad Girl, it reminded me of TUTBMP, and so did In This Life, so I figured she didn't want too many songs sounding too similar. When I made the Erotica tape, I used to put Playground at the end of it, so I was actually used to it, and I consider it a part of Erotica. IR does sound more different than BTS songs, but all of her albums have one or two songs that are different than the rest. Perhaps, if they were remixed to sound more like the album sounds, they can fit (more to how you describe), but that can also leave a few mislead when they listen and hear a different sounding song than what was expected. I favored the Guerilla mix to IR, anyway, and I was playing that more often at the time. Then we do have the case of American Pie showing up on Music on the non-US albums, which used to bewilder me. It was American Pie, but America didn't get that song.

When 'Confessions' first came out and absolutely ruled my brain, I kept thinking because the production is so gorgeous, it would have been amazing to have an extended version of the album as a second edition, almost like 12" mixes, with some amazing breakdowns in the music, some extra vocals even, and sure, some full on mixes.

I think a fan made some extended mixes of the songs back then and it was cool to hear... Anyway, I believe this would have been another cool edition of the album to buy.

Someone can probably earn some extra $$$ if some of M most popular albums were remastered on limited edition gatefold vinyl with bonus material on a second vinyl disc.

I think Justify My love, the beast within, justify my love remixes, Get over & rescue me should be on the remastered Immaculate Collection with longer cuts of the complitaion tracks (they exist).

Just a cd won't do because they don't sell anymore. Mini boxes with original albums remastered, bonus album of demos, unreleased tracks and alternative versions plus an album of the album's singles remixes and as much pics from the album's era would be a better choice.

We have the Extended Version of Jump in the maxi single so extended mixes of each song must exist.

Because I know we'll get nothing, I'm setting my sights low: remastered Like A Prayer, for God's sake please. Erotica could use the treatment too, but LAP is a must. Everything Bedtime Stories and on is passable, but LAP doesn't deserve to go unremastered.

That would be perfect! A super deluxe edition with a Disc 3 of demos/outtakes and Disc 4 of the Blond Ambition Tour on DVD would be even better! We can dream.

I've lost hope for the BA DVD at this point. I'll be truly shocked if we ever get it!
