Wireless Reconnected

We've wished for it, hoped for it, prayed for it, even talked about it here, and now it seems to be really happening.

EMI is remastering and re-releasing Thomas Dolby's first two, completely essential albums, The Golden Age of Wireless and The Flat Earth next year.

Of course, the reissuing of Wireless brings with it an instant debate...which version? The original, UK release without "She Blinded Me With Science" and the rock version of "Radio Silence," or the later American version with "Science," the more ambient "Silence," and all the remixed versions of the other tunes?

Well, Thomas is debating that himself over on his blog and he wants your input. Here's your chance. I'm pretty happy with the playlist he suggests, actually.

And yes, "Wreck of the Fairchild," the single most requested song via e-mail in the history of this blog (I get about one a week, even when I HAVE IT UP ON THE MAIN PAGE HERE, people) is included.
