Today I thought of paying a visit to the best used record/cd store on my city. I try to stay away because I inevitably tend to buy stuff I don't need, have no place for, and often don't need, just to satisfy my need to have every version.
So it appears that they have been moving some storage stock and there were so many things not on display before. Someone must have unloaded their US PSB collection because I never saw some items. Note that years ago I had made the conscious decision to get all versions of all tracks but only on CD, as completing a singles collection by PSB on vinyl would have been too expensive. Still I know I never saw these in real life:

."Very Relentless" sealed from US (Printed in the UK, obvs) however stickers are a bit faded (by the way, what was the cellophane like back then on this one? This seems too fresh and quite loose and home-made, however the round sticker on front doesn't have signs of having been removed and reapplied.
."Essential Pet Shop Boys - Limited Edition 1998", boasts almost only alternative versions. I have lost the ability to use my iTunes library so can no longer do those very helpful searches for versions: Are there any on this CD that haven't been put on FL and previous cds? I don't have too much time today but I am just playing the intros of each track and it's PURE HEAVEN. Wow what marvelous music!
."Opportunities" US (it's a beauty with that silver sticker: https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-O ... ease/27684)
These I did purchase, but I had to leave there some with NM sleeves because the conditions of the records were just nowhere near my standard minimum. I have some trouble understanding how someone could have kept these sleeves in NM condition yet be so reckless with the vinyl: Always On My Mind (US), How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously (US) and this very peculiar "two-back-sleeve" release which I had to look at many times before I was ok that it was issued like that (https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-A ... se/1656354).
Have to be honest that the fact that the EMI Manhattan labels are just horrible is a reason to have left some there. They are just ugly and unFarrowy!

Time for a PSB revival!

Oh one last funny one, another pre-Parlophone item, the fat box Maxi 4-cd collection of West End / Sunglasses /Opportunities. (https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-T ... ter/724119)

I would say that Pet Shop Boys are the best artist to be a collector of. Madonna, Samantha Fox and Eurythmics are good contenders in terms of sleeves, formats, remixes and artwork (don't sneer at Sam!).

I've always liked the EMI Manhattan label, or maybe they just remind me of the excitement back in the day of getting an import 12"!

Anyway, in terms of my purchases, been on a laserdisc kick lately. Recently got:

Television (Not the laserdisc which tends to be quite expensive, but the CDV version)
Discography (UK & Europe Version)
Performance (European Version
Discovery (European version)

Also, non-PSB laserdiscs I got were Sing Blue Silver & The First Video Album by Duran Duran.

Don't have a laserdisc player and never intend getting one, just like the way they look.

Speaking of formats you cannot play, was there ever a PSB release in CED Videodisc?
