Duran Duran, circa early-'80s

Duran Duran will follow up this fall’s expanded edition of Rio with new multi-disc reissues of the band’s self-titled 1981 debut and 1983’s Seven and the Ragged Tiger, both due out in March, the group announced this week.

Both special editions will be available in 2CD sets or limited-edition 2CD/1DVD packages; each will include a remastered version of the original album on one CD, plus a second CD with B-sides, demos, remixes and BBC session tracks. The DVDs will include concert footage, TV performances and music videos such as the infamous uncensored version of “Girls on Film.” (See full tracklists below.)

UPDATE 2/11/10: Release date of March 30 announced for both reissues.

Additionally, Duran Duran will release download-only live concert recordings in conjunction with both reissues. For the Duran Duran: Special Edition, the band will release a BBC In Concert session recorded at London’s Hammersmith Odeon on Dec. 17, 1981. The Seven and the Ragged Tiger: Special Edition will be accompanied by the release of a download-only audio version of “As the Lights Go Down,” a one-hour concert movie spun off from Duran Duran’s “Arena” film (the video will be included on the Ragged Tiger DVD).

Both albums also will be reissued on limited-edition 180-gram vinyl, each with a bonus 12-inch featuring four remixes (including, on the Duran Duran reissue, a previously unreleased mix of “Girls on Film”).

The two new reissues will following the Feb. 8 release of an expanded 2CD/1DVD edition of So Red the Rose, the lone album from Arcadia, the mid-’80s, studio-only Duran Duran spinoff that scored a Top 10 hit with “Election Day.”
