A little miffed the digital copies didn't come with PDF's of the booklet, especially as they were the same price as the physical releases. Very keen to read them! ;)

For anyone interested, send me a message. I have about 3 people already. We will need to split up all the books,
(maybe 2 per person) and check the text against the images. Once everythings looking good, then I will post the links for you people to have.

I decided to redo the please booklet, because i wasn't happy with the way it split the columns, here
is a preview:

here are the others:

(DONT worry about the blank pages, that was just
a rendering issue, and of course the fonts are much
sharper in the full sized version)

I'm at the point where i can send out line numbered text files to people for checking (or links to them online).

let me know if you're interested in doing that, and then we can compare against the actual text and that
should do it.

110: Bobby ‘O’, as he was known, announced that they
111: would make a record together. The first Pet Shop
112: Boys single, the Bobby ‘O’-produced version of
113: ‘West End girls’, was released in April 1984 and was a
114: modest underground dance hit, at the time satisfying
115: their one stated ambition: to have a twelve-inch single
116: available on import in the trendiest London record
117: shops. A second, ‘One more chance’, followed. By
118: March 1985 the Pet Shop Boys were extricated from

120: subsidiary, Parlophone. A single, ‘Opportunities (Let’s
121: make lots of money)', was released that August but,
122: to their disappointment, only reached number 116 in
123: the British charts.
============================================
i'm not worried about formatting, just spelling errors and typos.
this will make it a lot easier to reference.

Again, I don't want to be a killjoy, but these booklets are copyrighted material and therefore posting them, or links to them is against forum rule 2.

We'd appreciate it if no further scans were offered.

Thank you.

The majority of the Youtube thread is pirated. Just because Google turns a blind eye doesn't mean it's legal.

Don't worry. I'm still working on them.

There was a family emergency that's taking up all my time. But I will try to get some of the revisions out to people
for proofreading, and we can go from there.

Ok, everyone here is the news:
=================================
1 I have sent messages to the 9 people that have expressed interest.

2 We are just finalizing the text, and looking for errors.

3 Once that is done, then you will receive the links.

4 If you did not get a message, PM and I will forward
the appropriate information.
=================================================
**** NOTE : I have not done Elysium, or Yes yet... those are forthcoming.

Thanks for your interest, and assistance.
