Has anyone ever found the track "Unknown Session - Life Begins At The Hop", listed here as BLU-67? I know it's on the sleeve but I can't find it in the disc's menus.

Has anyone ever read anything about when the previously unreleased tracks on here were recorded? It looks like it could be loosely chronological, so that gives us some idea.

I see what you mean about 'I give to you (Pestilence)' sounding as though the two channels are out of phase. I think the following track, 'Stray cat blues (Adventurous)' has the same problem.

The German 7" lists a duration of 3:05 for Side Two, the French one says 3:40, the South African 4:30 while the only one I have - the UK double 7" - plays the full 7:36 version. This is odd.

Seems to be! That 'short version' was also on their The Very Best Of and I wondered where it came from coz it's not on the original single. Looks like you found exactly where it came from.

That's not correct. You're right that the version on ABC 2 is different, with different vocals at the end. But if you play the 7" single, you will hear pretty quickly that the single is not the same as the version on ABC 2. I just played the 7", the... See full review

As I just commented on somebody else's post, the version of The Real Thing here has parts that are identical to the Bruce Forest mix on one of the promos - ABC - The Real Thing. So maybe it's a Bruce Forest 7" mix. It's not the Pickering Park mix. Play them side... See full review

Actually, no, the version of The Real Thing here is not the Pickering Park mix. If you play that 4:01 version on The Real Thing (Pickering-Park Mix) [EP] and then play the version on this CD, you will hear straight away that they are not the same... See full review

The back of the sleeve in the image is identical to the back of the sleeve of the gatefold issue, including, crucially, the lack of a cat#. There is no cat# anywhere on the sleeve in those images. This is because the cat# only appears on the gatefold... See full review

Booklet reproduction ain't all that great really. See all those grey pages, grey stars, grey dots etc? They were all silver in the original booklet. But metallic inks are more expensive, so they didn't use them this time.

Don't know how this sounds yet but, with spot gloss on the coloured shapes on the sleeve and a new picture label, this looks lovely!

You're right! I do have the original UK 12". Guess I should have checked before opening my mouth! I think I'll delete my original comment in a day or two since it doesn't acheive anything other than making me look stupid. lol

Thanks for that. Good to know I'm not the only one wondering what was up with it. And I take back what I said about the DVD. After another listen, it seems that it's just the same.

Anybody any idea what Two Tribes video this is? The standard video for the single is about 4:06. The Video Destructo version is 6:20. The version listed here is 4:57. What is that??

I bought a copy and played it. The duration shown on the record for the mystery track is wrong. It's the regular version of Part 1.

Bought this, ripped it and the duration listed on the label for track AA1 is wrong. It's the 4:00 7" A-side, aka Part 1. Mystery solved.

That's great, thanks. The sleeve that was being debated was actually one that had the same picture as on the cover of the 1st Visage album. Not the same as the one you've posted. Your pics are good.

No inserts. That's a bit sucky. But on the plus side, it's a very heavy pressing and the trifold sleeve is beautifully printed.

How is the US version different? Does it have a different barcode sticker and/or different runouts? Did you by any chance buy it from Rough Trade in the US?

The item was in both the UK and US official RSD lists (possibly more, those were the only ones I checked). The figure of 500 may have been for just one of those territories.

Has anyone else ever tried playing the 5.1 SACD layer? It doesn't seem to work. I get the same audio out all 5 speakers. I have to use the 5.1 mix on the DVD instead.

Only Swans - The Seer has Mute info on the packaging and was pressed in Europe. But there's no good reason that only one of them is marked here as a special edition.
