The Cranberries / No Need To Argue coloured vinyl reissue
April 7, 2018 by Paul Sinclairtags: 1990s, coloured vinyl, Stephen Street, The Cranberries

The Cranberries second album, No Need To Argue, is being reissued as a coloured vinyl pressing next month.

Originally released in 1994, the album contains the big hit single Zombie and like their debut Everyone Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, it was produced by Stephen Street.

There are actually two versions of this new vinyl available: a clear and pink edition and a clear and blue edition. Both come in a gatefold vinyl presentation with printed inner sleeves and lyrics.

It’s worth pointing out that this is being released on Plain Recordings in the USA and they don’t have the best of reputations, when it comes to high quality vinyl pressings. The label have actually reissued this before, back in 2016 on ‘cranberry’ coloured vinyl, so some of you may already have that one.

These vinyl editions of No Need To Argue are due on 27 April 2018. Availability outside the USA could be sketchy.

The Cranberries / Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? reissue
http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/ ... e-reissue/
August 30, 2018 by Paul Sinclair

A 25th anniversary edition of The Cranberries‘ debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? will be released in October across a number of formats including a four-disc box set

This anniversary reissue was already in the works when Dolores O’Riordan died in January this year. After much soul searching, the band put out a statement saying “we thought about it and decided that as this is something that we started as a band, with Dolores, we should push ahead and finish it.”

The album was recorded in 1992 and produced by Stephen Street (who had worked on Blur’s Modern Life Is Rubbish in the same year). It was released in March 1993 and features the singles ‘Dreams’ and ‘Linger’; the latter a transatlantic top ten hit. The album topped the charts in both the UK and Ireland.

A ‘complete sessions’ reissue of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? in 2002 added six bonus tracks, but this new 25th anniversary edition goes much further. The four disc box set contains the album on the first CD and bonus material spread over three further discs. Of course all of those previous bonus tracks are included, but so too are unreleased early demos, a live performance from 31 July 1994 at the Féile Festival in Ireland and a series of radio sessions from 1992-1993. The box includes a poster and four postcards.

There is a two-CD deluxe (disc two is repeated from the box) and a single CD and single vinyl LP edition (at the time of writing there are no links for the vinyl). Presumably, the audio is remastered, although no word as yet on the details.

Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? will be reissued on 19 October 2018. A new album from The Cranberries (for which Dolores had already recorded vocals) is expected in 2019.

It seems that things have drastically changed sales wise the past several months - especially for Stars. In the wake of Dolores O' Riordan's tragic passing, sales of Stars has experienced huge sales jumps in nearly every territory around the world. Before January 2018 sales in the USA were around 540,000, but now the album is likely to receive a platinum certification (1,000,000 shipped) in the months ahead. My guess is that the old 2.6 million worldwide number has probably close to doubled. I would not be surprised if Stars became their third best-selling album and overtakes the 6.5 million sales of To the Faithful Departed in the next year or two. The other albums that have benefited the past several months have been Something Else, (I'm predicting a gold certification in the USA) No Need to Argue and their first album Everybody Else is.... - which btw, will likely experience another sales jump once the 25th anniversary set is released/shipped next month. The first single the band has released from the set, "Iosa," is already trending. I think Dolores' passing coupled with the success of the Zombie cover by the Bad Wolves have given the group's sales a major shot in the arm. And it's not over. Early next year we'll get a final album of new material and almost certainly a 25th anniversary boxset of No Need to Argue late next year. I'm guessing that from here on out, the band will experience steady sales as more of their music is covered and probed by the artists and listeners of this generation.

I think it's high time for Stars to be issued on vinyl worldwide.

I predict this is how their sales will shake out album-wise worldwide by the end of 2019:

Everybody Else - 10-11 million

No Need to Argue - 20-21 million

To the Faithful Departed - 7 million

Bury the Hatchet - 4 million

WUASTC - 1.5 million

Stars - 7-8 million

Roses - 250,000

Something Else - 2-3 million

Fueled by “Linger” and the buoyant “Dreams,” Everybody Else Is Doing It went on to sell more than 6 million copies worldwide, beginning an impressive run that would see the Limerick, Ireland–based band — Noel, his brother and bassist Mike Hogan, drummer Fergal Lawler, and singer and co-songwriter Dolores O’Riordan — become one of the most successful pop-rock acts of the Nineties. Their next album, 1994’s No Need to Argue, went on to sell more than 17 million units, and its first single, the O’Riordan-penned smash “Zombie,” is currently enjoying new life on the charts courtesy of an updated cover from L.A. groove-metal act Bad Wolves.
