SMASH BluRay replacement

#1 Post by Gabby »

Anyone seen any updates on this?

https://www.petshopboys.co.uk/pet-texts ... nt?archive

The link closed off (presumably on the September 1st cut off date as advised).

I'm still not entirely sure how they're going to do this logistically speaking.

Also, can we presume the original copies were not actually recalled and are still out there (ie can you still order those on PSB shop website as well), and that future pressings will now contain the correct version of the Being Boring video?

Also, I'm trying to think of a single time a PSB compilation hasn't had some kind of error on it - quality control apparently isn't a strong point for PSB Management. Even now I still can't understand why the single version of Heart isn't on Discography.

Discography has the correct versions of all the tracks on. PopArt is the one they buggered up.

I do wish they'd hurry up with these blu ray replacements.

Really? I'll have to check my CD but could have sworn it was the album version of Heart on Discography.

That was definitely PopArt - at least in the UK. The US release corrected this mistake (and also with 'I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing'). US PopArt also had the single mix of 'Flamboyant', making it the definitive version of PopArt.

I stand corrected on Heart version on Discography.

Hopefully not early onset demensure. Mind you my first copy of it was on cassette, which I no longer have, so is it still feasible I am right and it was confined to the cassette release of Discography?

Answers on a postcard please...

It wasn’t the album version on my cassette version of Discography. :)

Any news on this replacement? Are we that bothered just for the sake of a bit of botty?

Fair enough - I'm clearly losing my marbles.

The Boys apparently thought it important enough to at least offer us opportunity to get the "full moon" version.

In these situations, it's always best to turn the other cheek I find.
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Agreed, they should just crack on sending the disc out and stop arseing about
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

If they don't it sounds like a bum deal to me.

I have a pre-order copy of Smash that arrived in July and then I made another purchase in mid-August that arrived in September. Could the one I bought in August be affected by that error? I have written an email to several addresses and they do not respond. The replacement website does not work.
