Duran Duran fans: U.S. release dates continue to shift for all of the band’s upcoming deluxe reissues, as the expanded editions of 1981 debut Duran Duran and 1983’s Seven and the Ragged Tiger this week were bumped from March 30 until April 20 (although the European releases are still set for March 29), while the remastered editions of 1986’s Notorious and 1988’s Big Thing were just pushed back from June 7 to July 5/6 worldwide. And in North America, the re-release of 1985’s So Red the Rose from side project Arcadia has been moved back a week, from April 13 to April 20.
See full tracklists and further release details for the reissues here: Duran Duran and Seven and the Ragged Tiger; Arcadia’s So Red the Rose; and Notorious and Big Thing.

And I JUST got word from my local record store that these were a go for April 6. I apologize to anyone in the Tri-State Area for the screams of defeat.
These “remasters” are getting very bad reviews for the sound quality. I think I’ll cancel my pre-orders.
