VH1 In Town Today with the Romantics!
Jul 10th, 2005 at 12:59am
 
a VH1 crew will be in town today to do interviews for a Romantics dual disc due out in September. It will be a double sided disc with one side featuring 12 songs and the other side, video-clips.  
That is as of now.
More news to come.
yay! Grin

While this is very exciting news, I'm remaining somewhat skeptical.  Not that I doubt Bookies word, but rather I think a lot of things can happen between now and September.  I seem to remember a split single with the Dirtbombs that never happened and more recently hype for that crappy NBC series which had them taking part and then they didn't (Thank God!).

Don't get me wrong, I hope that this project does see the light of day, but I don't want to get my hopes up in the event that VH1 ends up shelving it.  

I also hope that it's not another greatest hits compliation, or worse yet another repackaging of the King Biscuit show!  We couldn't be lucky enough to have the unreleased stuff from the late 80's-early 90's make the disc, could we?

And, with September being only two months away, I doubt it will include anything new. But, It would be nice to finally have access to videos.

While I'm thinking this may be a greatest hits thing or something... now call me crazy, but I seem to recall someone in the band(I want to say Mike) saying he was asked if he could write a ballad so he tried and did while in Chile with the band. I may have song type and such mixed up... my point is could they already been working on new songs?

It sounds like Sony may be re-releasing some of the Romantics albums, perhaps the 1st, 2nd, and 4th albums. Don't know if they will include any kind of bonus tracks. Before the interview by VH1 ended, Jimmy showed up to do a short interview as well.

Mike, Coz, Wally and Jimmy were interviewed for VH1 Classic.  Excerpts of the interviews will be included on the video side of the dual disc.

Well, it looks like we might have to wait until October now for the release of the dual disc!  But great things are worth waiting for right?!!! Grin

I hope you won't be too far gone by the time you see the videos!  We may have to wait until next year!  Let's cross our fingers that it will be sooner!

I talked to Wally last week and I could be wrong but I  got the impression that this is a dead issue.

From a source close to the band, the dual disc has been pushed back to a February release.  That is all I know as of today!

Trust me on this one.  I know famous last words!  But I cannot divulge anymore!  This is all factual information.  You can verify it if you would like.  You will still come out with the same information.  I never say anything without first checking everything out.

So what's the big secret? We had someone else here who "knew the band, had all of their unreleased music, blah blah blah" and it turned out to be just a psycho pain in the ass. What or who is this mystery source? It's hard to take things seriously when it isn't backed up with something concrete. We usually don't keep secrets here.

To avoid any unnecessary arguments, all you have to do is to check it out on Sony's schedule of upcoming releases.  The Romantics were on there a month or so ago for the fall releases, but now they are not.  It has been pushed back until a Feb/March release.
Some things in life were made to be a mystery.  Bookies can back me up.  I like to not divulge sources, but as you can see, I know my "stuff".  That doesn't mean that I am still not a pain!  After all, I was born a woman! Wink

And this is why I don't come here that much...  who cares who knows what? Seriously? I'm gald we get info, I don't care who tells us. If someone can't talk about their source then they can't talk..!

i can vouch for solodka and her source.
as board moderator and administrator, i certainly wouldn't sit by and let someone post erroneous information.
i do visit the board regularly to see what is being posted.
maybe solodka can find out "why" the release has been pushed back to february.
that is very disappointing news to all of us romantics fans who were salivating at the prospect of this dual disc!

It's really no big deal, but this "secrecy" stuff cracks me up. I guess it's one of those "I could tell you but then I would have to kill you" things. If I get some reliable info, I will let you know where it comes from so that you know it isn't BS.

I put this question to Wally in the "Ask Wally" section.  I think we would all agree that he would be among the most reliable of all sources.

That is, if he knows what's going on with the release, and if he is willing and able to divulge anything.

The only thing that I know is delaying things has to do with a cover decision.  All the ducks have to be in a row before anything is final and that always takes time.

I, for one, and bummed out...
Was hoping it would be in stores for Christmas... (so that I could let my hubby know what to get me... )

But, February would be okay because my b'day is in March!

Hmmm-
February: Valentines Day

               Anniversary month for the Romantics

               Maybe an auspicious month for a disc release

From the horse's keyboard (see Questions for Wally):

Wally: "The Romantics dual-disc is slated for release in late February.  It will be part of a campaign by Sony, to promote artists from the 80's.
Apparently, there will be 12 songs on one side and various video clips and interviews on the other side, both past and present.  When I find out more details of exactly which videos and songs will be on the disc, I will post them."

I actually was making a different reference.  I was referring to Wally playing guitar and not keyboards.  I got your mouth  innuendo.  I just went a step further!  We  uns dunt see too many horses har in the big city down here ya know!  We have cars now!  However, with the price of gas as it is, I would be just as happy to have a horse!  Sorry, for the misunderstanding there!
