Site make-over

Since I’m always busy with other things, like my radio show, recording and mixing music for a couple of friends, and lots of other stuff I like doing in my spare time, I sometimes forget to maintain this website. Hopefully that’s going to change. I’m gonna make myself a promise to spent some time on the website at least once a week. There for I’m also gonna do a make-over of the website. I never was quite happy with the last ‘look’ of the site, so changes are going to be made both in appearance and functionality. The way the site looks now is not the final product. Still figuring out what works best. If you have any suggestions for the website, you’re welcome to contact me.

next week ( official release 29.04 ), again as 180g vinyl in 3mm sleeve with an printed b/w innersleeve.

As this vinyl re Рrelease will be a limited again, those of you who are interrested  should drop me a mail

Ralf Hubert / Mekong Delta

MEKONG DELTA fact sheet

Another big fan of MEKONG DELTA has put a lot of effort in creating a fact sheet, containing everything you want to know about official and unofficial releases, facts, trivia, past tour dates and merchandise. Manuel Schulz has been working on this since 2007 and has checked this with Ralf Hubert himself. It’s always possible some things are missing, since Ralf, Manuel and myself can’t remember or know everything. If you think you have something to contribute (be sure to include some sort of evidence, like pictures or links), you can contact me through the website.

Re-Release ‘The Music Of Erich Zann’

I received the following note from MEKONG DELTA.

Hello to all of you,

the 2nd Mekong Delta re – release on Vinyl, “The Music of Erich Zann”, will be available for fans first
in about 4 weeks, again as 180g vinyl in 3mm sleeve with an b/w printed innersleeve. As the CD cover,
caused by all the re – releases, is far away from the original Cover, we spent a lot of time in restaurating
the original oil painting so that we can use it for this vinyl re – release. A lot of Details are visible again now,
its quite different from the CD cover used over the years ( decades ) so that we already got requests for
an t-shirt release.

As this vinyl re – release will be a limited again, those of you who are interrested should drop me a mail
during the next 2 weeks so that I can reserve a copy. Beside the normal album orders for signed whitelabels
are possible again.

If you are interrested in Holy Moses Vinyl, got some copies of “Queen of Siam” & “Finished with the Dogs”
out of a license deal, they can be ordered directly through our mail address.

Best regards,

Ralf Hubert / Mekong Delta

If you’re interested, the e-mail address for ordering is:

(Please remember to specify whether you would like the normal re-release or a signed whitelabel (as long as available))


Re-releases

OK, the re-releases are the greatest concern for MEKONG DELTA at the moment. As you probably know, the first 4 albums are being reprint and re-released in a limited amount. As we speak, the first album (‘Mekong Delta’) is available and the second album (‘The Music Of Erich Zann’) is currently in production. The problem is the following. The original artwork for the first albums has been either destroyed or heavily damaged. Since Ralf wants his re-releases to be (almost) perfect, some work has to be done to restore the artwork. This is the first reason the work on the album containing ‘Suite’ and ‘Five Fragments’ has been postponed. The second reason is that Ralf found himself changing to much of the parts of the ‘Suite’ composition (which was NOT his intention), so he needed to take his distance from the work and let it settle. So, things are progressing but have a little patience. In the end it’s worth your wait!


Work in progress…

Mekong Delta - Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta – Mekong Delta

Some years ago, I think it was somewhere between Lurking Fear and Wanderer on the Edge of Time, Ralf’s plan was to improve and re-release the Suite for Group and Orchestra (found on Visions Fugitives) together with Five Fragments for Group and Orchestra, two of which can be found on the Lurking Fear album.

I received word from Ralf that he’s currently working on improving the Suite for Group and Orchestra (the ‘Fugue‘ is the only one not ready yet) and that he is completing the fragments. He hopes to complete this project before the second half of this year, so it can be released.

Other good news is that the first albums by MEKONG DELTA are to be re-released on vinyl, starting with the self-titled debut. The first album should be available somewhere halfway the month of May. These albums will be limited editions, so people that are interested should let Mekong Merchandising know they would like to reserve a copy. Before you start mailing me, I will create a form which you can use to notify Mekong Merchandising. Be patient.
