Looks like a value package for 20 notes with the 7 track CD.

Ordered!

Love the CD cover :clap:

Dreams came true!!!
Some of you may remember I suggested the Annually to come with the My Beautiful Launderette soundtrack.
I'm looking forward to it, though this does still leave Neil's rendition of Musik unreleased.
The song Angelic Thug surfaced as a crude bootleg. I listened to it on loop for ages. I really like it!

The Cd cover really seems to be an ironic spoof on Actually, is it not?
To me it seems tacky but I don't really care.

The cover is perfect, honestly. They should spoof "Actually" as much as they want, it's their can of soup. And also spoof-worthy.

Really odd that they released No boundaries as a b side months before and also put it on here. That's oddly unsatisfying in a PSB OCD way

The CD Cover reminds me of Discography.

One door should be open a. la. the Actually cover.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Chances are this will be an "original" version, prior to being repurposed for more conventional Pet Shop Boys usage as a b-side.

Think here of Closer To Heaven (and other songs from Nightlife that had their roots in the musical), No Time For Tears appearing as a b-side etc.

Retro. :)

They don't have a master plan. They probably did not intend to release the whole thing at that point, but then changed their mind. I can't be more thankful!
