Have All the Mode for X-Mas, Thanks to iTunes
DMTV EXCLUSIVE / BREAKING NEWS
POSTED: 12/12/2006
Word is coming from France that Mute is to release a massive digital download collection via iTunes that will contain EVERYTHING the band has released (studio recordings, remixes, etc.) plus some unknown exclusives. The collection is to be released sometime near THIS CHRISTMAS! The artwork we've obtained appears to be authentic as well as lazily put together. The collection is aptly named The Complete Depeche Mode. We will follow this story for you. Due to the massive amount of tracks involved, we're guessing the collection will sell online for a low to mid three figure amount.
12/14 UPDATE
At this point, the only logical release date for this to be available before Christmas would be next Tuesday, December 19th. So it would be best to look for it on iTunes. This will be a worldwide release. If this release is a go, it would appear to be similar in comprehensiveness to the U2 collection that is currently available now through iTunes. Ultimately, all we can tell you is check your iTunes on Tuesday. Also the image that has been featured on this site was directly linked from its source and it appears to have been removed from said source. In addition, figuring the amount of tracks DM have released up to this point and judging the U2 set, this collection would appear to be priced at under $200 for over 600 songs.

2006-12-18 - Side-Line (Belgium) - iTunes launches exclusive Depeche Mode pack update

http://www.side-line.com/news_comments.php?id=P19539_0_2_0

iTunes launches exclusive Depeche Mode pack - update
Posted on 18/12/06

Rumoured for some days now, Side-Line received the official word that iTunes indeed will release an exclusive Depeche Mode download pack on December 19th. It will be the 4th time in the history of the downloadstore that such pack is made available. We also got some more details about this special pack that will be only available via iTunes. The pack will be consisting of no less than 640 tracks of which 59 will be exclusive and previously unreleased so EMI informed us. In the meantime we have gotten hold of the list and it are mostly (not so rare) remixes and live recordings plus a few rehearsal recordings (click here for the 'rare' tracks). As far as the pricing is concerned, iTunes has set the pack at roughly 179 US dollar / euros. Not all of the rare tracks are available seperately and this has already caused quite some mayhem amongst the fans. Unlike what is being suggested here and there, this pack will be available outside the USA as well though it has become clear now that the releasedate will not be the same everywhere. For instance the Belgian iTunes store showed only a partial and not purchasable list, which disappeared soon afterwards. We suppose there were a few problems which will be solved pretty soon. More news as we get it.

Depeche Mode 3 Stars
The Complete Depeche Mode
iTunes
Gerrit Pohl
Das Gesamtwerk Plus der britischen Synthie-Popper läutet wohl endgültig das Zeitalter der digitalen Box-Sets ein. Und so gibt es neben den regulären Alben und Maxis auch Unmengen an Bonus-Material, das Fans längst kennen und Neulinge kaum brauchen werden. Ausdrücklich zu empfehlen sind aber die enthaltenen frühen Live-Aufnahmen aus London und Liverpool, die die Band roh und kraftvoll zeigen. "Photographic", "Tora Tora Tora" oder das fantastische "Ice Machine" klangen nie wieder so gut. Und werden bei der hiesigen, durchaus seelenlos erscheinenden "Greatest Hits"-Tingelei auch kaum noch gespielt. Ansonsten regnet es Verschollenes und Rares (Rehearsals, abgelehnte Mixe, Gepfiffenes) von wechselnder Qualität. Kompletter Kokolores: Die 19 "digital only"-Remixe, die so austauschbar wie ideenlos sind. Insgesamt 644 Songs für 179 Euro, die relevanten Stücke sind aber auch einzeln erhältlich (30 Euro sollten also reichen). Vorbildlich: das nur im Paket enthaltene und aufwendig von Anton Corbijn gestaltete 62-seitige digitale Booklet. (iTunes)
