The final results are in for my poll of the past week, in which I asked my site visitors whether they would like for the re-reissues of the first six Pet Shop Boys studio albums (scheduled for release sometime this year along with first-time reissues of their five subsequent studio albums) to feature any new bonus tracks that were *not* included when they were previously reissued in 2001. And the response that received the most votes was:
* "Yes! I'm always in favor of them releasing rare or previously unavailable tracks, and I'll gladly buy those albums again to get them!" chosen by 49.0% of the voters.
To see the complete results, please visit my "Commentary" site at http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and select one of the "Past Survey Results" options from the top navigation bar or click the appropriate link on my "What's New?" page.
My new survey isn't just for the week ahead but for the entire remainder of April as I take a sabbatical for a little more than two weeks from website work, emails, and pretty much the internet and computers in general. This poll will therefore run "on its own," without my checking up on or commenting on the running results, until Monday, May 1. And the question itself is pretty simple and straightforward (though perhaps your choice won't be): I'm asking you to choose what you consider to be the best sequence of three consecutive PSB studio albums. So please ponder this and, when you're ready, make your choice right there on my home page.
In the meantime, thanks to everyone who voted in last week's survey! I hope you all have a great second half of April, and I hope to be in touch again (and making site updates again) come the start of May. And Happy Easter to all of you who observe the holiday! Take care!
