Do try the dl-code later. I've had it with other releases that it didn't work until the Monday after the Friday releasedate. Digital can never beat analog, right?! ;D It seems I need this boxset after all :D You do - as soon as I put it on the shelf I imagined how it would look with the Floodland e...

Thick box. Glossy sleeves. Poly-lined inners. Flawless pressings. More importantly: Listening now. So far, so definitive. It is a beautifully executed package - hard to fault thus far. Although the download code (which I almost overlooked) does not appear to work :? the link takes you to a file not...

Well Frank Arkwright would have been top of my wish list - but I do agree this all points a positive outcome!

(additionally, naming the EP "Magician" - happened long after the WEA tapes surfaced..) Well yes, obviously, because it's the name Palazzograssi gave to the EP.

Giving the Mack mix of Walk Away a listen right now, and strongly suspecting this is the work of one Reinhold Mack. IMO, it's a better mix than the album version, certainly crisper and higher fidelity. Better guitar sound, too. Given his credentials (Queen, ELO, etc.) it's easy enough to put two an...

As these are the regular issue 12" singles, are we effectively being asked to pay £900 for a slightly battered box ? Am I missing something here ? Shame the box is as battered and looks like there is no press release either. Am surprised the Greek or similar has not commissioned a box maker to do ...

Batley - West Yorkshire 1984

I just had to share this....

clicky

Anyone who grew up in the UK in the 80's will find this fascinating....

If nothing else - fwd to 22.48 and see what the DJ cues up after the Banshees track he's playing.

enjoy and remember how it used to be.....
