Today in Duran History – Seven and the Ragged Tiger Remastered

On this date in 2010, the album, Seven and the Ragged Tiger, was remastered in various formats in the US.  For many fans, this was a chance to buy a copy with much better quality than what they previously.  For example, I had the album on CD and it was placed on CD long after it had been released.  Thus, the quality was not what I hope for, especially when it comes to Duran Duran.  What else was cool about these remastered editions is the extras that came with like remixes, b-sides and single versions.  It also included a DVD of As the Lights Go Down (concert film), the videos and performances on Top of the Pops.  For example, here is the track listing:

One thought on “Today in Duran History – Seven and the Ragged Tiger Remastered”

  1. And As the Lights Go Down was FINALLY available on a DVD that was not some bootleg that might not play in all regions. For that reason and because it is STILL not released properly as a stand alone DVD, this clamshell box set sells for obscene amounts! SO glad I got mine when I did! I wish they would have corrected the dates for the tracks recorded in LA, rather than use the old incorrect info that was on the original releases.
