This has been released and EMI was sold to UMG & some artists were moved onto EMI's Parlophone label. As the new owner of Parlophone is warner music that have released some artists back catalogue in this form & although some people will moan I think its a good thing. You are on abou the missing content well lets clear that one up right now, Ultravox featuring John foxx were on a different label (Island/UMG) & the other incarnations were on DSB & intercord. Whilst UMG own the rights the john foxx era catalogue there would be alot of cross licensing to be done to release this although as Billy Currie owns the rights to revelation & ingenuity the couldve been realeased.
The main reason we see this box set is that Warner wants to cash in on there now found catalogue not spend money on licensing deals hence the chrysalis era albums being realeased. I do agree that a complete box would be nice but it will never happen & only may have happened if Ultravox signed to UMG when Brilliant was released but it wouldnt of been this cheap.
All the leg work for these remasters were done by EMI/Chrysalis so there is nothing new here apart from a new catalogue number for each album. Just check who its issued by, chrysalis/parlophone a WMG company
