Re: SMASH BluRay replacement

If people who receive them could state what country etc they're in, that would be helpful. It would be a good way of knowing if discs are starting to show up in specific parts of the world. These might be being sent out in some sort of order; probably by an intern who does a bunch as time permits.

What does Ringo walking by the canal mean?
In A Hard Day's Night, Ringo is feeling put down by the band and wanders off on his own in a melancholy sequence.

Re: "Was it worth it" live. Where/when?

But wait... this was never a bside was it? The live versions used on the Drunk single were drunk, Aways on my mind and Being Boring. Strange they included this - or did it actually appear somewhere? IIRC Neil said at one point that it was included in FL because he thought it was a b-side but later ...

Re: Mysterious tweet

Hope:- Singles Box set with all 45 of the parlophone releases across 45 cds housed in a stunning state of the art box Pretty much going to say the same thing - I would hope for a career spanning collection of all (or nearly all) official and promo singles. Because this would be a massive set given ...

Re: Annually + CD - Published on April 14th, 2023

What a crap shopping experience. - item does not appear on web site, only via email link - existing account not accepted, must create a new one, even using the same password. - Clicking Buy Now only turns the button to grey. - I have no idea if I managed to order it. Tried both CC and PayPal. No con...

Re: New fan, nervous about concert

I wouldn't over think it. Think of NO as an opening act (assuming they're even opening the show - I believe they switch places from show to show). You almost certainly know some NO songs. Bizarre Love Triangle and Blue Monday are considered standards as West End Girls, Relax, Tainted Love, etc are. ...

Re: #PSBWatch Opportunities in US TV commerical

When I was younger kid, and in my teens, the 60s were chronologically much closer to us in the 80s and 90s, than the 80s are to us now. But it seemed like a completely different era. Much of the media was in black and white, the fashions were completely different and there were no computers, no cel...

I don't typically care much about chart positions but I'm finding this interesting. Are any of the Best Of albums charting as well? Any other vintage songs?

Re: #PSBWatch Opportunities in US TV commerical

I don't know if I'd go that far. :) The ad is about how the driver saved $700 by switching insurance companies, which allows him to afford the car. He's taking advantage of an 'opportunity' to save money. I wouldn't say it's about being rich, just about being smarter with your money. Anyway, I see A...

#PSBWatch Opportunities in US TV commerical

Did anyone in the US see the post Super Bowl commercial for Allstate Insurance? It features Opportunities! Not sure if this was it's premiere or if it's been on for a while now but it took me by surprise! I don't see it online yet but I assume it will hit their YouTube channel soon. In the 30 second...

Re: In the night "diskette"

The listing contains a link to a sample of the contents. It appears to be the full song (but the sample chops it up so you get bits from different sections). It says it was sold as a souvenir. It sounds to me that it's just a high quality 'rip' of the master. Not something used to create the song in...

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

Loved 'It's a Sin' and bought Actually when I saw it had a free CD single of Always On my Mind. Though I hadn't heard their version yet, I always liked that song and was willing to give it a shot. Loved those two songs but the rest of the album was 'meh.' I bought Discography for some reason but I j...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Honestly, I probably wouldn't have even noticed that the music was slowed down. But I would agree that the speed of the songs in the film should match the commercial releases. It's highly unlikely there was a directorial decision to slow them down specifically for use in the film.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Got my copy today and had a quick look at the technical traits of the contents. All the DVD content is 25 fps. All the Blu-ray content is 24 fps (and that is precisely 24, not 23.976) [...] So, it is clear to me what needs to be done with all the content but Always on my mind : take the Blu-ray fil...
