Re: Bobby 'O' post-1984 releases

"Sunglasses" and "Theme From Pet Shop Boys" are not part of the PSB "canon" in my opinion. The tracks are not written by Tennant/Lowe and have nothing to do with our PSB. And as much as I like the dub of One More Chance, I still think the original is the best. Fully ag...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2021

So. A year to wait. I reckon a fifth single from Hotspot, followed by a new standalone single to promote the new 3CD Single compilation “ Dreamworld” released in November. I am pretty sure there will be new music between now and the tour, like a mini album or something like that. Or maybe even a fu...

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

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. ICHH ...

Great album, still listen to it once every while and appreciate it is only available on the VeryRelentless 2CD. No need for a brickwalled remaster for me.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

OMG.... Like most here I am very happy with the productivity of the Boys. However, I only buy Annually for the CD. If it does not come with a CD I am not interested in owning a copy (so I did not purchase the 2018 issue). So for me it's €30 for a mini album on CD and a free book. If it was not worth...

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

The Agenda one was much more sturdy though. And it's not exactly 'free' is it?

But agree, Annually is again a very nice read :)

Copy arrived today, but a bit disappointed by the very-thin paper sleeve for the CD.

Re: SDE article: How do PSB decide who remixes their songs

He's hinting at a download-only box set. Nice, but not for me. Also I am pretty sure every remix of the boys that was released in physical form is also available digitally (either offically or as vinyl transfers). Then again, to make these available for the wider Spotify audience is of course a grea...

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Just send then an email that you ordered two copies but never rceived the items or the invoice (which as I have said before was shipped together with the magazine and 7" as a paper invoice). They are not waiting for your payment so they can ship, and there is no 'wrong' payment option, as they ...

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Yes, the item is exclusive, not the songs. It’s one of those ‘first time released on vinyl’ things as well l. For those of us who grew up in the 80s/90s it’s so weird to see this advertised, as this was exactly the phrase used to sell ‘the superior format’ CDs: ‘available on CD for the first time’. ...

The PSB store states April 17 as release date, so they are early?
