Steps - The #1 Platinum Collection

  1. Totally agree with everything you've said here, but I have a soft spot for Trouble & Love as it's kinda cheeky and showcases a Steps first with a Lee-led vocal... and also Lee promising that something's gonna happen tonight (winky face) is very exciting.
     
  2. If we went with signature hits we’d be getting mash ups of 5,6,7,8 and Tragedy everytime.

    Deeper Shade wasn’t a big hit when first out. It was their first single not to get a certification. But since it has gone over 200K and silver and when looking at its Spotify numbers (which are split between the single and album version) it is one of their higher streaming songs

    Deeper Shade of Blue doesn’t physically need to be a “signature” hit - they perform it like it is one, and a lot of the time that’s enough. Plenty of artists do it.
     
  4. It’s probably worth considering Deeper Shade Of Blue being single 4 (5 including Tragedy) from Steptacular. By the time it was released, most people probably had the album.
     
  5. Deeper Shade Of Blue may not have been a massive seller at the time - probably due to it already being on the album that most people had by then - but it definitely is one of their best known songs.
     
  6. I think the Deeper Shade Of Blue video also sticks in the mind of the general public.

  8. Any updates on today’s midweeks? I feel like Lisa during the Electric release..

    “but we performed for Holly and Phil…”
     
  9. I can't think of a set of circumstances where that would have ever happened.
     
  10. Last week's Wednesday sales update didn't come until 6pm, so another 8 hours to wait.

    There might be some people in here who get their hands on the updates sooner though.
     
  11. £14 for the album and a ticket to a performance?? That's obscene. They'll sell out in a minute flat. Wow.

    I've no idea what the capacity for that venue is, but any extra sales are good. They better get those albums shipped immediately to help defeat the Manics!
     
  12. I don't know why they didn't package the BBC 2 concert with a digital edition of the album.
    That visual content surely would've pushed a few more units.
    I'm in Australia and I would've gotten a digital copy to be able to see that content (which is geo-blocked).

    I don’t think they’d be able to as the BBC won’t be allowed to sell their content like that. I’m presuming they’ll be some legal crap preventing it anyway.
     
  14. Yeah, I don’t think the BBC can monetise content unless it’s through the commercial BBC Worldwide arm.

  15. Surely some more of these to flog albums would be great. 5 tickets = 5 sales etc etc

  16. Well, I'm not sure why not. Although technically, we've already paid for it as it's funded through our TV License, the BBC does sell DVDs/Blu-rays of their comedy series and other shows.
     
  17. Do we have a concrete answer on why no "Slightest Touch" video yet?
    What a huge thumping mistake
     
  18. AU exclusive deluxe edition?

    It just doesn't work like that. It's all some weird thing about them not being able to profit from selling their broadcasts, which is why there's a separate BBC Studios company which has to do that, and it's highly unlikely to be anything other than physical formats on which they would ever do that, not digital.
