Starting a new thread following Bill's "Music and Brexit" posting, which revealed plans for a deluxe version of "Futurama".

Definitely something to look forward to! I wonder what "extras" can be found for it.

There's a John Peel session from 11 March 1975, with four songs, including "Lights".

And there's a 30 minute Radio 1 In Concert show from 14 June 75 which I don't think has ever had an official release. A cleaned-up version of that would be very nice, thank you - a longer version, if such a thing exists, would be fantastic!

What other undiscovered goodies await us? Would love to hear the development of "Maid In Heaven".

Was this the Phunky Phaser era? So should a few singles be included? :?

I believe Funky Phaser And His Unearthly Merchandise was 1976, the B-side (Shine) to the A-side of Kiss Of Light.

Really looking forward to the remix. I'm hoping for a much drier mix similar to the b-side 'Lights'.
I love the music on Futurama but i've always hated RTB's production.
Everything is swamped in reverb, recording levels pushed into the red all the time and as for that snare sound!

I'd be interested to know what Bill thought of it, given his recent comments about Sunburst Finish being remixed.
I can't imagine that's how he wanted it to sound as it's in such stark contrast to everything else Be Bop Deluxe recorded.

RTB was a 'big' producer at the time following his success with Queen, but he ruined some good albums for me.
Ian Hunter's Overnight Angels being another that springs to mind.

Gee, and I'm kind of fond of the overarching bombast of that album sound.

How about if they find a pristine copy of the 'Maid In Heaven' promo video to include?

For me RTB absolutely destroyed the stunning guitar work at the end of Sound Track with his overblown, gimmicky production.

Would be brilliant to see that rectified.

I rather like the sound of 'Futurama.' Pat Moran, the main engineer on the session was, in my opinion, a genius. And who can fault 'Maid In Heaven'? Not me for one.'Sister Seagull' is pretty darn good too.
