Decide: the most expensive physical PSB track of all time.

#1 Post by daveid » Fri 06 Dec 2019, 2:00 pm

Decide is a well-named track. I am yet to decide whether or not I'm willing to fork out £13 (inc. P&P) for the benefit of ONE song. It's kind of ridiculous isn't it? Anyone else yet to make their mind up?

One day it will find its place on another b-sides compilation. Moreover, If it's good and included on Japanese version of the album I buy this version. No pressure. I am not collecting vinyls.
I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

I’ve already ordered the Japanese CD… the bonus tracks including something otherwise not available on CD seem quite likely.

The money aspect doesnt bother me, I want the PSB to see these singles with B-sides as being as lucrative as possible so they always keep doing it. for me the issue was I was a little worried when the burning the heather single first came out and it had no B-side.....THAT worried me because that was outside their usual behaviour since way back when.... I dont even want that to happen again where they release a single and there was no B-side with it. hell 99% of the bands I like seem to do that, but with the PSB I love the dynamic of getting almost a second albums worth of new material once you add up all the new B-sides. I just wonder why they did that. accident? it seems odd.

I think Transfer was more expensive before it was released in Further Listening

I think The Dumpling song was expensive before it turned up on FL as you had to buy a ticket to My Dad's A Birdman!

Decide, with it's vinyl release, will be, for me, the first time I've heard a new B-Side/Bonus track on vinyl first since I Get Excited...

Although if you buy it from Shamazon you have the option of autorip.

True... but at least you got other tracks and a little van with a stylus on it!

Would the Vinyl Factory release of 'The Most Incredible Thing' with the exclusive demos not be more expensive per track?

Did that have demos? Well, take the overall price and divide by the number of exclusive tracks and that's your golden number.

The Yes box was more expensive...and included the instrumentals, so it´s the same situation ;)
This is not my signature.

Well then I would have thought the Electric box set from The Vinyl Factory would top the list in terms of cost per track right?

you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Of course the great thing about them also releasing it digitally is that you can actually get it for £2.49. Instantly.

Or for free, if you're at least a bit tech-savvy.
