I retract this earlier statement, as an opportunity has arisen for me to review the album.

:shhh:

Expect to hear a track-by-track review from me over the next day or two.

Retro. :)

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Greetings,

Hopefully you're right, Oakey. I guess in the end it will depend on how many are made - supply and demand.

Retro. :)

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Greetings, The average price on discogs for most exclusives of this sort is around 7-10 EUR, except for Prince. Also, no one is talking about the great magazine cover, which is a yet unseen picture! A comparable benchmark for pricing would probably be this... https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-Wi...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Greetings,

Remember when PSB lyrics relating to homosexuality were imbued with subtlety and subversive double meanings?

To Speak Is A Sin?

Later Tonight?

It Must Be Obvious?...

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Greetings, Surely it would be the Inner Sanctum release? The one they've mastered professionally and have the rights to. Possibly, but this wouldn't be the first time they've used a live BBC recording as exclusive content for a magazine giveaway. Remember this? https://www.discogs.com/Various-Q-Live...

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Greetings, On a slightly related note, it's my guess that the live recordings will be from the Hyde Park performance, since it was recorded and broadcast by the BBC. It also notes having Always On My Mind followed by a reprise of The Pop Kids. Someone shared a copy of the live recording with me in F...

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Greetings, Terrible site, and the insistence on IBAN for payment is going to kill this for me, because Australia doesn't do IBAN and I'm not risking getting ludicrous transaction fees on my account. I look forward to hearing Kobalt Blew's experience before considering whether I will bother at all. B...

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

Greetings, Exactly. I may understand UK people seeing Brexit innuendos fuming out of every pot, but for the rest of the world Decide is just a vivid song about keeping love relationships up. Some of us have an awareness of global current events, including those in an artist's home country. "What hav...

Guess the next Annually gift

Greetings,

Here's a poll for our resident Nostradamuses, while we patiently/impatiently (delete as appropriate) await the new album.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Greetings, Greetings, So, retro, how's your source coming on? Any more nuggets? Nothing new. At this point I'm content with Effen Vida's overview, so I haven't asked.

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

Greetings, Sorry, but I can’t see any love, kindness or compassion in the reasons given by pro brexit parties before the referendum. OK, but what you can or cannot see doesn't change the reality of what other people do or do not think or feel. One aspect of love is openness - and it is therefore lov...

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Greetings, Ordered the 2CD, I couldn't resist the signed print! I've also got the CD on it's own preorderd from JB HiFi! At least you'll not have to wait to hear the album. In that sense I'm taking something of a risk ordering the L.P. and 2CD from the OS. I hope they post it early (and properly!) t...
