What have we done to deserve this ?

You could carry all PSB albums around lossless though. What else could you possibly need??!

What have we done to deserve this ?

Old Soak - I agree with much of what you say. Searching for, finding, and even opening a rare item is something I miss a lot and it is pretty much gone now. However, I do also get a load of pleasure from having access to such a wide range of music, viewing it all together in digital format, and list...

What have we done to deserve this ?

I think you have to draw a distinction between lossy and lossless here though. If the issue is one of sound quality then what you are lamenting is a lack of availability of an easy to purchase lossless file. I'd agree with that but should one be available, I wouldn't care less about it not being on ...

What have we done to deserve this ?

Only reason for me to buy CD is to get the lossless file. I rip everything to FLAC then play it digitally. I'm with Whateverman42 that this is a huge step on from the ways of old given the flexibility it offers. Especially with CD singles. This was really brought home to me the other day with friend...

Re: What Time On stage @ Take That?

It was fine - just not what you get at a regular PSB gig (to be expected obviously). Good reception for Go West and West End Girls but when they started It's A Sin, I expected the crowd to be dancing and they just weren't really. Best track for the general public was ironically "Together" as they us...

Re: What Time On stage @ Take That?

They were on at 7 o'clock on the dot in Birmingham last night.

Good set list, although strange to be watching with a crowd of non-PSB fans.

Re: The Most Incredible Thing CD release: out on 7/03/2011

Do we know yet whether the 'Hardback Book Edition' is different to the 2CD edition available on other sites?

Keen to get this on the day of release and HMV are pretty good at posting out early whereas the official store definitiely isn't.

Thanks

Peter.

Is this instrumental somewhere out there too?
I've been wanting to track this down since I saw Life In Pop, but no luck so far :(

Re: PSB BBC DVD

Have I missed something or is Pandemonium/Can You Forgive Her? missing from the DVD?

Surely they did this at Glastonbury given the name of the tour?

Re: "Montage" The Nightlife Tour DVD!!! APPRECIATION!!

Just ripped the audio of this and listened to it in full for the first time.

Could never get through the DVD given all the distracting angle stuff, but just had to post and say how amazing it sounds on my iPod.

Fantastic and unique versions of the songs.

Love it.

Seriously

Could anoyone help me understanding what is the version of How Can You Expect ... Seriously, that appeared on the original UK single as the double A side with Where The Streets Have No Name? I've had a look on the PSB Discography site and these forums but am struggling for an answer. In the discogra...
