Is it a big disaster if Woolworths don't stock it? Just a thought... Retro. :) Yes as Woolworths is the largest contributor of phyiscal sales (I think it is something like 40-50% of sales figures are from Woolworths). Also there is a Woolworths in the majority of places unlike HMV and Virgin so for...

I'm surprised it's going to be released at all in light of the diversity of US labels involved in the PSB back catalogue.

Is it a big disaster if Woolworths don't stock it? The reason I ask is that if someone is going to buy it, they're probably going to buy it... regardless of where they buy it. Maybe the delay inbetween might mean that some first week sales become second week sales... but this is not necessarily a ba...

It's ironic that I'd be happy to pay for internet downloads, but because of the copy protection, I don't.

So, rather than protecting/increasing sales by means of this protection... in my case, they're actually missing out on a sales opportunity.

Now don't get me started on low bit-rates!! :evil:

As to the earlier question, I'm from Australia... so am often subject to ridiculous postage rates. At this stage, it looks like I'll get Norman Records www.normanrecords.co.uk to source the 3 singles (couldn't be bothered with the 7") as part of a bigger "UK Indie" purchase and benefit from the comb...

Better still, they should do an entire (limited edition?) box set of Fundamental remixes yet to be officially released on CD at the end of the Fundamental campaign.

Where do you import your UK PSB singles from?

Hi everyone, I ordered my Fundamental(ism) 2CD from CDWOW and that was great. However, these discount Internet CD stores don't stock CD singles....! So, my question for those outside the UK is.... where do you order your UK PSB CD singles from... do you have any good recommendations? Thanks! Retro. :)

There is no need to collect. You choose. I choose just to get every track they release... preferably on CD (or CDR if that's all it's available on) For example, I don't even have any of the Home And Dry singles because the US Release bonus disc left them pretty much redundant. It's about the music ...

Thanks for the heads-up. Was it not for the DVD release, I'd be setting up the VHS as well. Sad about Minimal looking an unlikely release, especially on account of I'm with stupid actually making the charts! In fact, I don't think I've heard much at all about Minimal releases outside the UK.

Sorry, I had to vote Blue Monday.

Then again, maybe its the people who voted Michael Jackson and Guns N Roses should be sorry... sorry to have such atrocious taste in music. :evil:
