 “All Time Best” CD  (25th December 2012)

A new compilation called “All Time Best (Reclam Musik Edition)” is set for release on 1st March 2013 by Sony Music.

No tracking-list is available yet, but one wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a rerelease of “The Magic Of Boney M.” from 2006.

Anyway, let’s hope for the best…

 “In Concert” on DVD and CD  (10th December 2012)

According to several sites on the internet the Immortal label will release the TV-show “Fantastic Boney M.” from 1979 on DVD as well as an audio CD. It will be 2 separate releases.

They are set for release on 10th January 2013.

The “Fantastic Boney M.” show from 1979 has already been released as a part of the “Complete Boney M.” box-set.

Another release of this show seems a bit odd. It’s the kind of show that Sony Music and Farian should have decided to keep in their archive.

Also calling it “In Concert” seems quite wrong, as it was a playback show/special recorded for ZDF to promote their new album “Oceans Of Fantasy” at the time.

This release will just convince even more people that Boney M. wasn’t a live-act and didn’t sing live. We, the fans, of course know that Boney M. was a real colorful live-act and surely sang completely live during their concerts.

A real live concert would have been preferred instead of this release. Sony Music or Farian surely must have some hidden recordings in their archives. They found the Vienna concert from 1st November 1977 (released as “Live in Hamburg”) and we would like some more of that kind, please.
