The thing is, Sony doesn't plan on anymore reissues. They don't want to give fans with money anything else to buy. Cherry Red is probably the best option for reissues. Flood their inbox with requests and see what happens. Good luck.

There's been so much garbage written about Pete Burns & what happened to his face.
It was a legal limp 'plumping' procedure [& suposedly non-permanent] that got infected and then he was in trouble with some surgeons suggesting they just cut half his face off = Ouch !
The fact that he can still speak let alone sing is a bit of a miracle
A bigger miracle would be getting CBS to reissue all of DOA's back catalog in the same 2 [or 3 !] Disc way that arm-fulls of other lesser selling Artists have had done.
What's the hold-up ?

Dead Or Alive was always a favorite of mine. I went to a party of theirs at the Limelight in NYC in the early 90's. It was a pajama party. Wore pajamas, you got in free. I wore the jammies (money was tight) The Limelight was always a wild place but when they were there, it was one of the more "wacky" parties I'd been to.
