I think there are pics of that in the photobook... ;)

Someone once said it's from a sample CD. But I've never heard any proof (just like ppl said Aero Opening from the 2002 Aero concert was a demo song for a synth - no proof)

We had a 40th anniversary re-issue of the Concerts In China double album and next month is the 30th anniversary of Chronologie. I still vividly remember going into my local record shop in Preston, Lancashire, UK on 24th May 1993 to buy a copy as soon as the shop opened.

I would really, really like to see a re-issue of what is still my favourite Jean-Michel Jarre album. However, we’d probably have heard by now so I doubt very much this will be happening :(

However, if it did happen, this is what I’d like to see:
  • Remastered and reissued music, including a Dolby Atmos mix
  • Second disc to contain all the remixes – Sunscreem, Slam etc - and stems and effects from the album, such as the Swatch beeps and factory sounds
  • Souvenir fold-out booklet, with lots of the images and graphics that appeared in the Europe In Concert programme book
  • New inlay text from JMJ with his memories of the Europe In Concert tour that hot summer
  • Reissue on DVD or Blu-Ray of the Europe In Concert film, but this time mixed in with footage of other shows, not just the Barcelona concert. Also to include a behind the scenes documentary and grabs from local news reports (a bit like the Houston film)
  • Reissue of the Europe In Concert Swatch watch…. find a code inside the CD or vinyl to allow access to a limited edition of the watch with updated 30 Years graphics
  • The Michel Granger front cover naked statuettes issued as a series of coloured 3-D printed objects, to stand on your desk at home :D
Given the whole conceptual thinking behind Chronologie was about time, what other album is better placed to become the focus of an anniversary celebration?!

01.09.93 Manchester / 07.06.97 Manchester / 30.03.08 London / 22.05.09 London / 10.10.10 London / 01.07.11 Monaco / 04.05.16 London / 23.07.16 Macclesfield / 06.10.16 Brighton / 07.10.16 London.

That's a great wish list. Especially the 3D statues. And an Atmos mix would be amazing.

If only they could bother doing so. Seriously, Tubular Bells is gettings it's billionth new mix, in Atmos no less. Yet Jarre can't be bothered with a decent remaster :(
