On Monday 11 March Sony Music re-release the first three albums by Jamiroquai - Emergency On Planet Earth, The Return Of The Space Cowboy and Travelling Without Moving. Each album has been remastered and includes a second CD filled with rare and live tracks.
All three albums are beautifully packaged in gatefold sleeves and each includes a fantastic full colour booklet with information about the albums written by Jay Kay. There's some great information about how the albums were recorded, how Toby and Derrick got involved, how Toby was the inspiration for Mr Moon and other little bits of really interesting information."...But they [the record company] just looked at us and asked if we had anything else.

The piano starts up, then the vocals come in: And it's a wonder man can eat at all..."
The albums are available to order via the usual channels and here's links to the relevant pages at amazon.co.uk.

The Australian release date is listed as 15 March (at least on sanity.com.au) and the albums are also listed for US release on 19 March (Amazon, Best Buy, etc.). I don't know if these are just 'imports' of the UK release or a domestic releases.
