We asked our Facebook & Twitter fans to review the recent Kylie Minogue re-issues, either the Special Edition’s, Deluxe Edition’s or Collector’s Edition’s of any of her first 4 PWL albums – ‘Kylie’, ‘Enjoy Yourself’, ‘Rhythm Of Love’ and ‘Let’s Get To It’. Here are some lovely words to describe their #StepBackInTime.
‘I ordered all formats twice, one to use and one to keep in mint condition. My collector’s editions were the first ones I opened and I could not contain my excitement!
Everything about these re-issues is spot on. You can feel the quality of the materials, not just see it. The booklets are stunning, from the photographs to the fonts used and the posters and postcards are just beautiful. It’s like receiving your Kylie fan club pack all over again!
The audio quality is pristine! I’ve been able to hear sounds I never noticed before, it was like listening to the albums for the first time. In particular, I was totally blown away with the WDIHTD (Sax on the Beach Mix) as I had never heard that particular mix before now.
I was a little worried that the DVD promos wouldn’t be up to scratch but I was so wrong! PUP Ltd. have done an amazing job, it really is like seeing the video’s for the very first time. They are full of color, pristine sounds and pristine pictures but my highlight of the re-issues is seeing the BBC footage as the quality is flawless. Kylie has never looked and sounded so good!
You can tell a lot of love and hard work have gone into these re-issues and anyone thinking of buying these packages simply MUST!
I’m a music collector and have many box sets but these really are superior to anything I own.’
– Darren Summer
‘I think the sound is fantastic, the artwork is brilliant and looks stunning! What more could you ask for?’
– Terry Marsh
“‘I wanna FUNK, wanna FUNK, wanna F-F-U-F-U-N-K…’
Hearing those works blasting out the speakers, in their full re-mastered glory, was like heaven to my ears! Never ‘in my imagination’, would I have believed that 27 years after the release of ‘KYLIE’ would I feel the excitement and anticipation I did as a 16 year old.
I’ve heard and read many people say these box sets are overpriced and I’m sorry, but that is nonsense- these boxes are hiding some beautiful Kylie treasures. My first thought was WOW! Seeing the covers of these iconic albums, I was taken back to those magical STOCK AITKEN WATERMAN days all over again.
They include a stunning picture disc displaying the album artwork, housed in a simple but stylish cover, a large glossy poster from each era, a stunning book filled with pictures and background to each album and a 3 x CD/DVD combination that also included a bundle of postcards that once again transports you back to your youth.
The sound quality of the CD’s are perfect and only bettered by the DVDs (at last I have a perfect quality version of ‘Especially For You’!)
The CD bonus discs contain some perfect Kylie treasures from all of our favourite SAW remix legends! Yes, a lot of these have been released in one format or another, but never before have they been included with the original albums and that does my Kylie OCD the world of good!
Thank you Kylie, Mike Stock, Matt Aitken & Pete Waterman for taking me back to where my love for music and SAW/PWL began, with the opening beats of ‘I Should Be So Lucky’!”
– Julian Clift
‘I have been fortunate to get my hands on all 4 x collectors and Special edition Kylie reissues (Deluxe are next) and can honestly say that I absolutely love them.
The sound quality on both the CD’s and DVD’s are wonderful – they sound crisper & clearer.
The DVD’s are stunning, the music videos and extra footage are a feast upon the eyes and a pleasure to watch in their re-mastered condition.
The artwork, presentation, booklets & postcards in the collector’s editions are breathtaking and I would recommend any Kylie/PWL fan to purchase these for their collection!’
– Martin Harrison
‘As I carefully unpacked my collector’s editions, I began to relive my adolescence once again – I can’t begin to explain how beautiful each of the boxes are! It’s like 4 different time capsules, with so much inside, a treasure trove of beautiful objects that bring back so many memories! They now have pride of place in my Kylie Kollection!’
– Daniel Langrish
Finally RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, it’s my turn to get these beauties in my hands, I was SHOCKED to see how much detail was put in and I WOULDN’T CHANGE A THING about the sound quality!
– Matt Parry
‘”In my imagination… I dream about you all the time”
And that’s exactly what these gorgeous and stunning collectors’ editions are – a dream come true!
They are like a time capsule and a time machine transporting me back to when I first heard each respective album and a soundtrack bringing back so many fantastic memories.
These editions have been so lovingly put together and are extensive and beautifully made. Lavish booklets with gorgeous photographs & liner notes, gorgeous picture discs and fantastic postcards – all housed in a beautiful box to treasure forever.
The sound quality is amazing – the re-mastering is perfect making each song sound fresh and alive.
The videos are stunning and have never looked so good! The bonus content of interviews and the BBC archive performances are a sheer delight (it’s a joy to see these BBC TV appearances on each set and who can forget the fantastic performance of ‘Especially For you’ from Wogan)
I highly recommend these collectors editions – they are timeless and as you listen to ‘the sound of a bright young Britain’ you will ‘Step Back In Time’
Thank you PWL for making a dream come true – we are very ‘lucky lucky lucky”
