Girls Aloud

I mean, definitely will be a physical cd, as it mentions discs 1 to 3. Otherwise the tracklist would probably be all together.
I don’t necessarily trust Universal and releasing CD physicals just because of a layout choice online or a certain way metadata was filled out. For example: and neither of these had CDs.
It's giving Spice/Spiceworld 25 but done right - so already imagining pre-orders for a 3CD deluxe book, zoetrope vinyl, picture disc and pink and green double vinyl tomorrow.

Of course we'll always hope to see some truly new/unreleased things with releases like this, but there's no glaring omissions and I guess for the majority of listeners who either stream their music, or haven't been busy collecting all the various releases needed to have these tracks already, it'll all be new anyway.

I hope the other albums follow and are just as comprehensive as this with some surprises (manifesting Wicked Game).
Happy with the alternative vocals version being made available on streaming tonight!!

Other than that, I want to be excited about this re-issue but I just can’t right now. I don’t know if it’s because I discovered GA with the 2nd album, because of the lack of never-heard-before content, or simply because I have a bad week. Or maybe it’s just me realising all I want is to see the girls perform on a stage and it will probably never happen again. Maybe the press announcement will get me a little bit more excited/in the mood.

I have always wondered why One True Voice’s Sacred Trust was different from Girls Aloud’s version. The girls’ version is as bad as it can be and we can be grateful they went with Sound of The Underground. If there had been a battle between the two versions of Sacred Trust, the girls wouldn’t have won the #1 position surely.

I’m sure that book says they only recorded it as a marketing ploy to offer the boys song with Sound Of The Underground but marketing deemed that as a dirty move. I don’t think it was intended as the single. More of a bonus track on the CD single.
I think, compared to a lot of acts, there might not be a wealth of unreleased songs because of the way Brian worked - there might be a ton of parts of songs, verses, choruses, odds and ends, but very little finished songs. I can’t see it being appropriate to assemble bits of songs together into new ones either, though I could maybe see more alternate versions like the Long Hot Summer and Wake Me Up rarities boxset ones.

Maybe I’m wrong though - We Wanna Party was a Neighbours outtake and I don’t think we knew about it at all until the Out Of Control era, so there could still be some surprises in the vault.
I wonder if they demo’d any melodies or choruses that ended up with other Xenomania produced acts.

This will 100% be a yes. I wish we knew which ones. I think Ideas circle for years aswel so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s still stuff that could get released that they once recorded.
I wonder what we'll get with a Neighbours package outside of the b-sides and remixes?

Hanging on the Telephone? I'm Every Woman? Teenage Dirtbag? The audio from the Neighbours tour perhaps?
