Re: Burning the heather

Gives me flashbacks to when Released came out. :-|

Re: Opportunities UK DJ white label Ebay auction

The latter one was the only known pressing (until recently) of what every calls the 'matrix' mix of opportunities. The mix can also be found on quite a rare South African 7" of opportunities, which seems to be the only commercially available vinyl of the mix. Isn't this also on " Now That's What I ...

Re: Discovering Release

The only thing I didn't like about this era was that video clip with the mice. Another attempt at being 'arty' and hip. In reality a load of rubbish, nobody 'got' it. Of course there are fans who won't have a bad word said about anything PSB Best tracks were on the bonus disc. I agree about the bon...

Re: Was That What It Was?

One of my favorite songs. Glad I'm not the only one to love this track. Neil kind of dismisses it in the Alternative and Please Further Listening notes - that makes me sad as I think it's sublime. It would always go on my 'Best Of' playlist (or C90 cassette back in the day) I'd love to hear the ori...

Liza Minnelli Results 180g vinyl

Just wanted to give people the heads up I noticed the 180g vinyl of Results was beginning to become quite scarce, especially the 2 disc hardback version - I never bought it in 2012 as £40 seemed a bit steep. But the manufacturer is currently selling the last copies at half price on eBay. They have b...

Re: PSB's Vinyl Factory Electric Box Set Pointers & Review

I'm still not convinced by it. The vinyl doesn't even fit in the PVC sleeves very well. It just doesn't seem special enough for £500 and all the delays. In isolation it can be considered an expensive but desirable object. Yet when compared to the Yes box it is a poor relation. The Yes set was a lot ...

Re: Limited edition Electric vinyl coming from Vinyl Factory

#162 received today I'm very satisfied with it. It's all I expected it to be, and it sounds great too. The transparent sleeves are a bit too tight and I don't think they will stand more than a few plays, before they split. But it's a piece of art, so it's ok. I'm glad its not just me who found the ...

Re: What's going to be Parlophone's first x2 era release?

Parlophone will milk the PSB catalog for years to come. They'll probably start with "experience edition" $150 monsters of the early PSB albums on CD, hi-res Blu-Ray, and heavy-weight vinyl with demos, b-sides, alternate takes/mixes, Personally though, I would much prefer a complete CD set of PSB's ...

I long for a full Richard X produced PSB album. Think their sounds match perfectly.

Re: Why is Nightlife so expensive?

Bilingual and Nightlife being 1996 and 1999 had very limited runs on vinyl as, by then, no-one was buying vinyl as such and record companies actively discouraged it! I bought Nightlife at the time however but am amazed that they go for upwards of £70!! Bilingual I bought about ten years ago at HMV ...
