Re: No HMV art cards!

Bizarre decision. Probably saving about £1 by not printing three cards, but costing them 40 quid in album sales.

Re: HMV prints

Yes, it looks excellent that.

Am seriously considering buying the re-re-issues that I bought first time around if they come with prints too.

Re: Chris or Neil's Net Worth?

It'll be about 10k in UK money soon enough as our currency continues down the toilet.

I hope Chris and Neil had the good sense to invest some of their money abroad.

Re: Chris or Neil's Net Worth?

They probably trousered a small fortune supporting Take That too. Take That themselves picked up about £75m before tax.

Re: HMV prints

And the prints you will have to ask for as they have no idea Similar situation at HMV Liverpool this morning. The cashier at the counter had no idea, although I could actually see the prints behind the counter and pointed them out to him. "First I've heard of it" he said (sounds like something Chri...

Re: Ring Tones.

Not since about 2003. I had the first 7 seconds or so of the 7" mix of I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing as the ringtone on my old Sagem.

Re: Reissues project

Good grief, I've just seen what the prints are selling for on eBay. Let's just say I am glad I lucked into buying the CDs in HMV and getting them for nothing.

Re: Reissues project

Just picked up my order from my local HMV, because I had purchased all 3, I received a set of free art prints. I too went to HMV to buy them (no issues with stock shortages there!) and was very pleasantly surprised to receive the free set of prints. I haven't seen that deal advertised anywhere. Alt...

Re: Your latest PSB item

Technically you CAN'T sell promo CDs, since they are NOT for sale. But you can give them away for free, so you can sell an autograph (or a photo, a t-shirt, or whatever you want) and give away a promo item. Promo items shouldn't be for sale on eBay, but eBay closes its eyes since they are a large a...

Re: MUSIC FOR BOYS 12" PROMO 12MFB1

I sold one of my copies in 2009 for 50 quid. I think that's about its money.

Re: anyone interested in moving ?

What a lovely property. Luxurious yet refined. Neil has excellent taste - and an eye for a bargain too, if the purchase price is genuine.

Re: Together 3 Track Promo on Ebay :)

I love the fact that on the close up pictures of the rear text, it says "may not be sold or re-sold" ! Priceless!!! They always say that, have done for years, along with a load of blurb along the lines of "this CD remains the property of Record Company X" etc. Of course, it's all codswallop and leg...

Re: Behaviour: 20 Years On

I still just don't get what makes Being Boring the "greatest song ever". For what it's worth, I don't get it either. I wouldn't even put it in my top 10 PSB songs. I find the whole thing somewhat maudlin, and lyrics like 'We dressed up and fought, then thought "Make amends"' don't exactly trip off ...

Re: Song BATTLE of the Day: Flamboyant vs Miracles

Yes, both great songs. Flamboyant for Tomcraft's production and getting Issey Miyake into a rhyming couplet.
