Re: Remixes you think are better than the original version

We all feel better in the dark (after hours climax) Of course! One of my all time favourite and I forgot about it. I’m not sure I’ve ever gotten to the end of Disco 2 so I’m not sure I even knew this gem was there! The ONLY PSB album I never play. That mix is mislabeled on Disco 2 : it is actually ...

I have no idea about the history behind these items, I only know these were intended to be destroyed as some other articles I have.
So what was that? :wink:

Was that what it was? :lol:

Re: If you've done nothing wrong.....

However well intentioned, I think any form of electronic ID or tagging is a bad idea. You open yourself up to anyone who has the knowhow to misuse that information. Everything can be hacked if it's man-made. Electronic IDs/tagging has been with us already for quite a while, although not explicitly ...

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

I have a Release (I think - if not it's Nightlife) Abbey Road CD (and can vouch for its authenticity) with exactly the same sleeve and design of inlay as that Bilingual one and the CD is printed, not a plain, pen marked CDR. Sure — I'm not saying that all internal reference CDs will be pen marked C...

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

If they were created by somebody who wants to create something hat "looks good" would have put more attention to this. But this inconsistencies are normal for somebody who just created them for internal use, with no commercial intentions...something just casual and functional than aesthetically ori...

Re: Pet Shop Boys & Robbie Williams

I am struggling to find full lyrics for No regrets — including ALL the lines that Neil sings. Some of Neil's lines are included here but not all. For example, all the backing lines in the "I know from the outside.." verse are missing. Could anyone post the full lyrics here please?

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

I genuinely believe these were created during the compiling of the REMASTERED Further Listening discs a couple of years ago. The content will probably have been indeed. Not the discs, sorry. However, one may not care that the discs are fake provided that the content on them is genuine as there is n...

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

I wondered if they could be in-house test pressings from when Actually - Further Listening was being prepared around 2001? Then it would make no sense to create a "Demos" disc along with "Further listening"; all those tracks would have gone on the "Further listening" disc. Also, they would for sure...

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

Hmmm.. The snippets are real good quality wavs indeed. But the discs themselves don't look like 33 years old. Neither they look like genuine discs made by Parlophone. Even less it is possible that the concept of "Further Listening" had existed back then. My assumption is that someone who has access ...

Parlophone can’t release anything from Behaviour and onwards, without Neil and Chris’s consent, since they own all the rights.
Oh, didn't know they had re-negotiated the Parlophone deal back in those days! Thought it was all the same contract 1985-2012.

Re: NEW West End Girls 2x12" (Nov 2020)

I dunno why one needs to be irked by Bobby/ZYX/whoever releasing PSB stuff that PSB themselves have no current input in. They now won't have much say in regards to releasing anything that's in the hands of Parlophone either. When the sad day comes, they won't have any say at all, the heirs of their ...
