Right, but that still doesn't explain why CDRs of the other albums haven't been for sale like that. Because the remaster guys got excited just about Fundamental and burned it only?

apparently the instrumentals were created during the mastering process for Fundamental's Further Listening. So it's not after 15 years, but after 1 or 2.
If that was the case, why only Fundamental then? Because someone close to the leak source was a big fan of it and wanted just it to begin with?

In my opinion, they should remaster, and re-edit all of the live performances before Inner Sanctum and release them as a collection.
That won't ever pay back (unless we all pledge some $$$ in advance).

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

ICHH was shot on 35 mm film, which is still superior to 4K if they used the original negative (which would be equialent to 6K). 6K? Wow! Since they only do 4K now that leaves room for improvement for another take on that in the future. Let's look forward to a 8K release in 2030 :mrgreen: But it's a...

I want it in 4K as it was redone in 4K.
They used a 4K scanner for an ultimate preservation. But I doubt the picture actually contains that much detail. They've probably chosen to release it in whatever format fully conveys all the details. Actually shipping 4K would be an unnecessary excess.

Gender can be so fluid these days.
It can, but what's the relevance to music production? I mean, does it really make difference all other things being equal?

They really should have put this on the new Very FL as the third disc. We want a remastered version of it.
They enjoy having it sort of hard-to-find exclusive. Fans have it, others don't need to. But yeah, a remaster, however limited and exclusive, would be a treat.

I wonder if they replaced the demo of Always on my mind with the finished production or if it's just for the trailer.
Most certainly just the trailer. The original sound should be intact other than just remastered.

I can't understand why this song doesn't even have any official remixes or extended mix?
Clearly because it was not a single, and didn't have the luck of those several non-singles in PSB catalogue that got remixed.
Neither the first, nor the last gem to be left undisturbed.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Angelic thug is definitely my fav from this CD. Whereas the production may be rather primitive, the overall song is very catchy, uplifting and fun. In fact, it is the only song from the CD that remains playing in my mind after a few listens to the whole thing. Beautiful laundrette may sound more su...

Ungrateful, moaning nitpickers will always be ungrateful, moaning nitpickers I guess.
Nitpicking has nothing to do with gratitude (or lack thereof) either.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Staggering to read that whether or not the CD is free has anything to do with feeling ripped off. The debate (on my side at least) was just for the sake of correct labelling. At the end of the day, nobody is forced to buy the product, be the CD free or not, worthy money or not.

Re: I Don’t Wanna

I am 95% certain the blue CD is merely a render: it doesn't exist physically. Perhaps they planned it blue initially but then changed their mind. And no, you are not being ripped off. This is a free market, everyone can offer goods/services at any price and terms. Never did the official store commit...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

Not sure if anyone noticed but David Jackson made one smart and funny lyric tweak. The line "A guy so shy he doesn’t feel that he has any sex appeal" appears twice, and the second time it just lacks the last word "appeal" :clap:
