The fact that TOE was originally released by ATO records and will now be distributed through SONY seems to be the wrench with the reissues on this side of the Atlantic.
The 1st five albums (CH, TOLM, Woodface TA, Afterglow) were all released by Capitol/EMI; now owned by Universal Music. Intriguer was released by Universal, so it stays the same.
I'd be curious to know what kind of negotiations take place between record companies, to ensure us fans get consistency in terms of release dates as well as art/design/packaging.
It still kind of sucks that there isn't an actual 'official' BOX being released in this part of the world. As grateful and excited as I am, I can't help but think someone wasted a golden opportunity to make something really special (with bonus stuff like pictures, posters, etc.) to 'house' all 7 CD''s.
