George Michael reissue shoots to top of vinyl pre-orders

News / Preorders / December 27, 2016

Back in September of this year, a reissue of George Michael’s Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 was announced. Following his death, the listing shot to the top of Amazon’s vinyl pre-orders, overcoming the reissue of Hot Fuss, Run The Jewels’ newest and Panic! At The Disco’s long-awaited reissues.

The vinyl reissue includes remastered audio for wax, along with the original artwork. A CD set includes a remastered version of his 1996 Unplugged performance.

I was all ready to shit on this, given the assumption that they launched this immediately after his death. But with the September announcement, it just seems like people are finally caring about it.

The reissue is coming out on March 3.
