Re: How PSB could make money without any new song

This is similar to what I suggested in my 'Top Ten wanted future releases' thread, but I would want to see: CD Boxset containing ALL mixes from 'West End Girls' 1984 (first release) with ALL b-side mixes of 'Pet Shop Boys'. I wouldn't want anything besides the initial release, as PSB had no involve...

The people behind Recycle have also done a similar project for PSB. It's just not public, that's all.

Re: The Together Chart Position Meltdown Thread

There are many timing reasons why 'Together' performed poorly, but deep down we all know the main reason - *whispers* - it's just not that good. This. The whole song is well below par for them. The 3/4 time signature is a bit interesting, but the melody, lyrics, and production are quite forgettable...

Re: Did Your Local Music Shop Have The Together CD Singles?

No chance of that here. The last time I saw a PSB CD single in a shop here was during the Fundamental era. The last time I saw a domestic PSB CD single, well... we'd have to go back to Nightlife for that. Ironically, while in one of the very few remaining record stores, I saw the first new -- and go...

Although I would have liked to be less greedy in the digital bundles, and put different things from the physical releases, just to make us spend more money.
They have been doing that from the very beginning; I wouldn't expect anything else.

I expect it will only be a download single though.

Re: Can Together Make It On US Radio?

In a word, no.

I'd love to be proven wrong though.

Re: New release in November!!

AFAIK, it's very unusual for remixers to get paid royalties. Normally they get a one-time payment for their work.

Technically, no. PSB are given credit on the front cover for production, but are not listed as the artist.

"At least all"? That would be a rather expensive box set... besides, some of that stuff didn't get a commercial release for good reason. Have you ever heard the Tomcraft remixes of "In Private"?

Two people not letting anything get between them (or at least, believing that they can keep it that way).

Re: It's Alright USA Promo cd on ebay

Exactly. If this was a real promo from "years ago", other copies would've turned up by now. I don't care what promotionlift supposedly said. This has "fake" written all over it.

The Parlophone logo on a supposed US release gives it away: fake as a $3 bill.

Re: New B Sides album & Ballet album

I think its the otherway around. the better the play back device the more it emphasizes issues if the mix is too low. There are no issues from a mastering being "too low" unless you get crazy, ridiculous-low levels, which we don't. To make an album sound LOUD, they aren't boosting the volume -- 0dB...
