Really good read, thanks for posting, found this little tidbit quite interesting though..."You know, one of the other things that I think will have to happen at some point is either a box set or a digital round-up of remixes which currently are only available physically. Some mixes are on Spotify and Apple Music but certainly a big part of the catalogue, including those remixes is not".

Hopefully he is speaking from info he has and not just a random comment, it sort of hints at a fifth single from Hotspot as well...hopefully Will-O-The-Wisp as i would love to hear a club mix of that. :dance:

He's hinting at a download-only box set. Nice, but not for me. Also I am pretty sure every remix of the boys that was released in physical form is also available digitally (either offically or as vinyl transfers). Then again, to make these available for the wider Spotify audience is of course a great idea.

As long as it's exhaustive, they can release it however they please. If it's digital, I can easily rip that from most lossless services. It can't really be a massive box set, since that would severely limit the amount of people who would purchase it. I'd say even the Bowie box sets were too expensive, and dare I say it, riddled with useless stuff. So, affordable, well-designed, exhaustive - you can do it, Boys! Can't wait for the first one.

I just sent the article to David Jackson who hadn't seen it. He was very pleased to hear we've been talking about his mixes.

I'd like a massive, exhaustive download set. Then I can dip in and download the few mixes I really like that I either don't have or only have on vinyl and want nice digital copies of (such as 'Opportunities (Shep 12")', 'Domino Dancing (Base Mix)'). If it was only physical, I couldn't bear to pay for, and to sit through all the mixes I'm not fond of just to get those I like.

I've... already started making a similar project - just putting every lossless version of literally everything in the cloud. Scraped the list from Wayne's site and started just crossing one song after the other... A couple of things missing, but made it to the letter P so far. It's already 30 GB.
