Notes:
Still is a "posthumous" double album by Joy Division, consisting of previously unused studio material and originally a live recording of Joy Division's last concert in High Hall, Birmingham University on 2 May 1980.
The live performance includes the only time the group ever performed the song "Ceremony" live, which later became a New Order single. Another song featured is a cover of The Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray", recorded at The Moonlight Club in London on 2 April 1980.

The song D4 "Decades" is suffering badly from wow and flutter. Obviously being transfered from a cassette tape copy.

The song "Twenty Four Hours" was also performed live at Birmingham University, but was left off the CD release due to time constraints. Despite not being listed on the sleeve, it appears on some LP pressings.

This album has been remastered and was re-released in 2007. The remaster is packaged with a bonus disc, recorded at the Town Hall, High Wycombe.

I've got a 2lp FACT 40 edition here which lets the record out to the side, embossed lettering and opening the gatefold, the tracklisting is upside down... ?? Anyone knows this version ? Or have I missed out on any version yet listed here ?
Thanks

Hi - bought my copy many moons ago in Manchester and thought it was time to sell. However, I can't find my version listed. It has the gatefold sleeve that lets the records out to the side but has the rounded inner sleeves. White labels and grey text. No mention of TOWN HOUSE on the runout. Also record 1 seems to have the same label printed both sides - both sides are apparently side 1. On the runout you can see A or B so I know which is which. Is this a misprint or a dodgy version?
Thanks

Let's talk about Joy Division's sub-genre listing. Post punk? Joy Division DEFINES post punk. New wave? No. That would be later with New Order, who practically define that genre later on. Their crappy lead vocals, and their first LP place New Order in both sub-genres, so spot on with that. After NO's 1st LP they expanded clearly into the New Wave, Dance, EDM, and other sub-genres that I'm not as familiar with.

I'm not sure if many recognize it anymore. "The Chicken Wont Stop" run-off groove may be a reference to the Werner Herzog movie Ian Curtis allegedly watched the night he committed suicide. The movie is called Stroszek. The film ends with a dancing chicken in a neglected road side carnival who keeps getting prompted to dance inside an exhibit. The movie eerily deals with suicide and how expectations of coming to America fall short for some. The dream of what may come and the reality that follows. It's disturbing because the band was on the doorstep of their first US tour. Unlike the movie, "The Chicken Stops Here"

Anyone can confirm date for this CD? I thought the first CD version of this album was issued in 1990. This one would predate the UK issue by 3 years.

The liner notes for the Special Edition state that Ice Age & Dead Souls were mastered at the wrong speed & that "Both these corrections will appear online in due course." Does anyone know if subsequent pressings are corrected or if the HD tracks version is @ correct speed?

Still will appeal primarily to fans, though there are some good tracks. For the most part, many of the songs will sound familiar to those who know earlier, pre-JD releases, most notably Warsaw.

My favorite just happens to be the first song, Exercise One. It's a brutally simple song with a deceptively intricate bass line. The beginning fades in with some of the most haunting sounds I've ever heard. Specifically, they're backwards guitar feedback with a healthy dose of delay.

However, this brings us to my primary complaint: the way Hannett mixed the drums, namely the snare. It's my guess that he was going for a hand clapping effect. Whatever he had in mind it ruins the whole studio portion of the album.

The live tracks are a waste of time, and the first time I heard Sister Ray I thought the record had ended and something else had started. Anyway, that's my take on Still…
