Re: Manufacturers property not for sale

Greetings,

All this means is that they're giving it away for "promotional" purposes, and they want to see it used for its intended purpose, not commercially resold. I've never heard of any instance of any record company asking for their promos back.

Re: Hating PSB

Greetings, I have a friend who hates PSB because they don't just do bubblegum pop like Erasure and Take That... Which disproves the comments above, more layers than an onion. Mind you, she liked pretty much every UK novelty No.1 from the 70's and 80's so that should set it in context. Maybe a cover ...

Re: Hating PSB

Greetings,

Eh, I've seen worse. But then, the boys can be a bit "catty" at times themselves (especially when they spend time in the company of people who are that way inclined)... so I'm not sure how this is radically different.

We'll see... as long as they still Pet Shop Boys, they'll do something.

Cheaper to buy both mixes than one!

Thanks for letting us know it's available now.

Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Greetings, It looks like it's not going to be easy to source here in Australia. If anyone finds anywhere that the PSB mix can be purchased in lossless format (preferably FLAC), please let us know. Vinyl's fun and all but in the end, it's really the Pet Shop Boys' work I'm after and "it's in the...

That's the key point. We weren't used to it at the time.

And no amount of track re-sequencings, elevation of b-sides or demotion of album tracks would have changed that.

Brilliant news. Great find. No mention of the Eddie Valdez mix though... are we sure this is its origin?

Re: On-U Sound

Greetings,

They're not official but I think Petshoppibone is brilliant and is worth hunting down, even if you're not a fan of megamixes generally.

Re: Do you think PSB need a new release before the tour?

Greetings, hmm .. Will-o-the-wisp ... as first heard on the album Hotspot released 17 months ago?! A new and improved version. It’s hard to improve on perfection! Agreed. Any "new" version would unlikely be "improved". It would be like Integral all over again. Retro. :)

Re: Do you think PSB need a new release before the tour?

Greetings,

I see these things as disconnected. They will release an album when they have an album's worth of material recorded. To do so, however, is not necessary precursor for a Greatest Hits tour since they already have more than enough great hits to include.

Greetings, I thought the West End girls mix was on CD somewhere? Can anyone confirm that? In the article it says on CD in the UK fir the first time...the world is a big place. Not officially that I know of, but you're right, the world's a big place. As you likely know, the Disco version takes its in...
