Re: Complete Singles Collection Vol. 1

Yes, 4 CDs at a time would make them reasonably priced as well. To make it consistent, I think it should start with the original 7" A and B sides (with its variations), then go on to 12" A and B sides, remix 12" A and B sides, reissue versions, import versions, promo-only versions and unreleased ver...

Re: Pet Shop Boys Songs That Are The Same Song

Miserablism and the unreleased James Bond instrumental (I’ve always wondered if that one became Miserablism)

Re: Reissues project

Reported on Discogs about Please/Further Listening 2CD (2018)..... thoughts? FU2RH3D March 6, 2018 Remastering glitch at 2:24 on the album version of Opportunities? Seems to cut out early on the (not sure how best to describe this) four keyboard stabs? between the "lets make lots of..." and the " aa...

Re: Appreciation Thread for HCYETBTS Album Version

I wonder, if Jealousy had been released as the third Behaviour single in early 1991 as planned, would Seriously have been the fourth?

Re: Pet Shop Boys Songs That Are The Same Song

The obvious one is Opportunites and In The Night, where they set out with the explicit aim of creating a B-side with the same chords and tempo as the A-side. They didn’t quite succeed (there are chord sequences in Opportunities that don’t appear in In The Night and vice-versa). Add Paninaro as well...

Re: WANTED: "Memory of the Future" Minimax promo

Did you get a response from Encore Records and did this cd arrive at all? Unclear whether they are still open for business, even though the site is live.

Re: Reissues project

So Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money) (Original Twelve-Inch Mix), is it just me or is there a slight distortion/crackle on the right speaker? Starts 11 sec in. I can hear it on my CD,apple music and Spotify The question also remains, did they replace the bad edit with the original 6:44 12" ve...

Re: Reissues project

Does it still have the "A Man Could Get Arrested" mix with an alternate intro (compared to the original 12")? Did they replace the alternate mix of Opportunities 12" (the one with lots of bad edits, sounds like a rejected mix?) with the correct Dance mix? What about "I Want To Wake Up", is it the ve...

Re: One More Chance Question

I like the Bobby O era One More Chance, but what it lacks is a "definitive version". Across the ZYX & O Records back catalogue there's plenty of versions, with plenty of good "bits", but no one mix stands out above the others as "the mix" to listen to. The original 7" version (mixed by "The magnifi...

Re: Reissues project

Or maybe the Voxigen mix could be moved to another (later) single, as I believe it was released much later. It was released on the second CD-single in continental Europe a few months after the single release https://www.discogs.com/release/218380 So it's still part of the I Wouldn't single release ...

Re: Reissues project

...but one thing I would really like to see on there, would be the unreleased Violence 12" club mix. That's a brilliant version, a shame it never ended up on Further Listening. Maybe it could even be a bonus track on a Relentless reissue of some sort.

Re: Reissues project

If I counted correctly this adds up to 85:11. And these are just the ones we know exist. I think many singles from Seriously/Where The Streets will need some editorial decisions, you're right that everything will not fit on 1 CD. In the example you mention, we could probably do without the album ve...
