Further Listening booklet scans

#1 Post by Pete13 » Thu 20 Jun 2013, 7:25 am

Although I own all of the further listening discs I'm not always in a position to dig them out to read. Is there anywhere online where they have been scanned or transcribed?
Cheers
Pete

Yeah I'd like to see a digital version too. My CDs tend to be stored away these days.

I am in the process or scanning all the booklets.

So far I've done please. Although that other site has the text,
it has lost the formatting, and all the lyrics.

So mine, I have the following:
=====================================
- images
- PDF
- text
- Word document
- EPUB

I will post some samples shortly.

I'm still in the process of checking the text.

Samples
============================================
Text:
Pet Shop Boys

Please

The original album re-mastered
and accompanied by a bonus
disc containing additional
tracks, remixes and unreleased
songs plus a 36-page booklet
with interviews, lyrics and
exclusive photographs.

PSB1

Pet Shop Boys

1984-1986

Please, the first Pet Shop Boys album, was
released In March 1986. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe
had met In London during August 1981 and began
writing songs together soon afterwards, eventually
settling into a routine of regularly demoing new songs
In a Camden recording studio owned by Ray Roberts.
In August 1983 - when Neil was working at the pop
magazine Smash Hits and Chris was studying
architecture - Neil was sent to New York by Smash
Hits to interview The Police and took the opportunity
to play some songs to the cult disco producer, Bobby
Orlando, whose records Chris and Neil admired.
Bobby ‘O’, as he was known, announced that they
would make a record together. The first Pet Shop
Boys single, the Bobby ‘O’-produced version of
‘West End girls’, was released in April 1984 and was a
modest underground dance hit, at the time satisfying
their one stated ambition: to have a twelve-inch single
available on import in thetrendiest London record
shops. A second, ‘One more chance’, followed. By
March 1985 the Pet Shop Boys were extricated from
their Bobby ‘O’ contract and signed to EMI Records’
subsidiary, Parlophone. A single, ‘Opportunities (Let’s
make lots of money)’, was released that August but,
to their disappointment, only reached number 116 in
the British charts.

I now have all the original scans done, and am working on the 3 other ones:
-----------
Nightlife
Release
Fundamental

Then I will finish off Yes, and Elysium.

Now working on the OCR and other conversions of the other parts:

While I would absolutely love your digital copies to have as my own (Please! Please!), that's not the reason for my post.

I want to pubically thank you in advance for all of your hard work - not just what you're doing here, but for NOOL with your Recycle 2 discographies, and your tour book scans. Your dedication and efforts are nothing short of phenomenal.

Thanks again.

Greetings,

On a SLIGHTLY related note, I have digitized my CD copies of the Further Listening discs up to and including Fundamental into FLAC format. (I'm still waiting for Yes & Elysium to arrive in the post).

For each "album" (read: disc), I like to have different artwork. A scan of the front of the Further Listening booklet is usually adequate, but in the case of Nightlife, Release and Yes, there are two FL discs, thus leaving one without artwork. If anyone is aware of any good substitute artwork to use for any of those sets, do please post a link or upload a copy, if it's of no inconvenience to you.

Thanks!

Retro. :)
