The CAMPAIGN & PETITION for a 20th anniversary RAY OF LIGHT deluxe release #ROL20deluxe

Recommended Posts

I take people's point about other artists having great success with re-releases and if course musically, Madonnas reputation would benefit from it as her classic albums really deserve the attention to today's younger markets!! 

BUT 

It would be hard to see Madonna promoting the re-releases because her career has always been synonous with eras. Her album cycles are cermented in image, style and her persona....

I can't imagine her going out and promoting/discussing Erotica now it's 25 th anniversary.

Just some more thought about it.....

Very valid point. We can wish all we like, but Madam calls the shots.

Did you all know that the origin of her love for If I Had A Hammer is actually from 1998?

A petition would get some attention, if passed around correctly and if fans took the time to sign it. After a few thousand signatures it could be tweeted to Guy.

The thing is, it won't even be that difficult to put it all together. All it needs is 1 person to really drive it and put it together.

ROL was a game-changer for Madonna, as much as LAP was before it.  LAV announced Madonna as a pop star to be reckoned with, LAP showed Madonna had talent to burn, and ROL showed that there was no compare.

I might be biased, as I am an Orbit fan, with my fandom pre-dating the remixes for JML and Erotica (pretty much from his Torch Song 'Wish Thing' album). However, there is not a wasted note/sound/vocal throughout the whole album. Critics often include ROL in articles and books about the best albums of all time. And rightly so.

Erotica deserved a 25th commemoration for sure, but it will be criminal to overlook any decent product release to signify the 20th for ROL.

It's very rare for the artist themselves to go out and promote these kinds of re-releases, anniversary editions etc. That's if they're still even alive to do so or still in the music biz. I wouldn't expect her to. She can be as involved or as disinterested in them as she wishes.

They simply co-exist alongside the artists current work. The 2001 remasters, as basic as they were, did not in any way negatively impact Madonna being on top of the world with 'Music' and DWT at the time. They were simply a nice upgrade in sonic quality of her previous work. Why ANYONE is against such a thing boggles my mind.

Maybe we are lucky and some Chinese people take Suedy's ideas and they make some beautiful bootleg?

The only thing I want is a remastered Ray of Light deluxe album which would include “Has To Be” and “Like a Flower” as bonus tracks. Both CD and LP. Plus, I want a Ray of Light poster or something and I’m good. But the original album really DOES need to be remastered. I want a sharper, clearer sound and her vocals more distinctive. Anyway, look guys, she will never release all these unreleased songs and DVDs with interviews and videos. Like, I’m seriously hoping for AT LEAST a remastered version of Ray of Light.

Madonna wouldn't have to really do much to promote any kind of reissue as it wouldn't be something for the general public or casual fans. They never are.

They're for the people who post in this forum. :lmao:

I mean, look at A Piano from Tori Amos. Does anyone think that the 90's alternative fan who knew of God or Cornflake Girl really spent $100+ on demos and b-sides? Hell, I asked for it for Christmas so even I didn't have to pay for it! 

As savvy of a business woman she is, she fails pretty miserably on promoting/celebrating her back catalog. We'd lap up every anniversary reissue she'd throw at us.

George Michael's deluxe reissue of Listen Without Prejudice is heading towards No. 1 in the UK album charts. 

Now his death of course will have pushed some of those sales up, but really Madonna needs to acknowledge the fact that she stands to sell a fair few records if she capitalises and reinvests in her back catalogue. In fact those sales may even help the exposure and sales of her new material. She's actually being a bad businesswoman (and has been so for over a decade now) when you look at how poorly she's handled her back catalogue.

Although I agree with you and I'd love to see some re-releases this is peanuts compared to the multi-millions she has earned with LN over the last 10 years.

Good business equals money and vice versa. It might not be artistic but any buisness that makes money is a success.

Re-releases are just too small time for her unfortunately.

George is doing that well because of his death I doubt he would get to number 1 again without it, as talented as he was!
