I love his vocal on a With a Little Luck. If it's not here, can you add it?

I saw tons of U2 in my locals, they both only got 2 copies of DD each. I hopefully got one when they went online at 6, a little over the odds but worth it; I'm waiting to hear from them saying they messed up the order - hopefully not! Tons being... See full review

What a shame, it is one of the best tracks from a great album. My green has no such problem.

It is also really unlikely that all 500 owners of that limited edition of 500 would be users of Discogs. I expect there are a lot more than 500 copies out there.

My black vinyl does not sound that good tbh, I thought it was my deck but checked everything and played another new release and it's fine. PG is crackly and jumpy. As an aside, any idea why there is no country of manufacture assigned to this?

Nick Beggs was bassist and second lead singer in Kajagoogoo; did you mean 'Nick begs that someone will be sued'?

Legality aside, this comes from a time when DD could put together an interesting set list.

The most random colour choice imaginable. Grey, clear, grey splatter, silver, black; all work better than this Tango moment.

Thanks Solar, see svsol's response for the full story. I got the first album on clear too but have not opened it. interesting they decided to mix up the tracks like that, I know that different versions were used on prior represses.

That's interesting, thanks. I've only got various European issues so had never seen it...now I'll have to get myself a US pressing. I find remarkable that WB did not think people would recognise her, following the first 2 albums she was huge. It... See full review

I opened mine, I don't think it will become hugely valuable. The vinyl sounds a bit flat, but I think that's the recording not the pressing. The gold itself is very disappointing, I'd call it more like caramel.

Interesting it has no lettering on the front cover, has True Blue been released like that before?

Yeah or an alternate mix or demo, there are plenty of them.. The original 7" mix for instance would have been good.

I'm not sure why, further pictures show the correct sleeve, which is the candy stripe, non die cut. Also, the single in the Clash sleeve is a demo copy, not for sale so it is completely the wrong picture for this listing.

Who knows anything about the bubble gum cards which were issued with this and presumably all the early singles and Pelican West? I seem to remember there was an A5 album to put them in, from the fan club?
posted a comment on Haircut One Hundred - Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl). about 1 year ago
Anyone know about the bubblegum cards included in the UK release? I have a vague memory of them including having an A5 sized booklet to put them in which may have come with the album. There do not seem to be any references to them on any releases.

Totally agree, picked up the 12" without having heard it before. That b-side though, at all what I expected.

Monkberry Moon Delight what a tune. I'm working my through Macca's early solo work, I love how free he was to create and experiment. He either did care about sales and critique or knew it would sell a shed load anyway.

I agree but the charts in the early 80s were amazing. Yes there was dross but there was also pure gold. You watch just about any episode if TOTP prior the 85 and the line ups were incredible.
posted a comment on Paul McCartney - Egypt Station. about 1 year ago
Totally agreed. In a time when most albums are in gatefold when not required, this really needed one. The printed inners are good though and the vinyl is nice. Most importantly, it is a good album, he's not written songs of this quality in a while.

Agreed it is of the it's time unfortunately, lots of bands suffered. Nice that they did it lots of different colours just to add to the pain. They did not really improve over the next releases either.

It feels like thick PVC with an envelope flap. Mine was split on arrival! How do you differentiate Mylar?
