You're breaking up my heart, I feel like crying.
Shaky had Cwazy, Merry Christmas Everyone and a few other not awful ones, but obviously mostly pretty dreadful ones otherwise.
Still more than Lana del Rey.
God damn, this thread strikes deeper into my heart.
This in in my view too. Each to their own of course, but he could be a contender for one of the worst pop stars of all time.
There's that TV appearance where he got Richard Madeley in a headlock so he's not all bad.
His Greatest Hit.
And then of course, there was this...
I do like Lipstick, Powder & Paint, and Merry Christmas Everyone is undoubtedly one of the best festive songs ever.
Well, suppose there was always that.
Good price for the Sheena 1983-87 set on pink vinyl?
This is a rave from the grave but does anyone remember the Cherry Pop/Red debacle on Belouis Some's Some People (CRPOP15) from 2009? It was a right mess with drop outs, different volume levels and wrong versions. On one of my music travels this week, I gave it a spin and it is still a fine album - produced by Thompson & Barbiero and Ian Little (DD fame) - Imagination and Stand Down in particular.
Discogs though has two versions, the initial release and a corrected release, differentiated by the matrix number with V2 added to the later version. On checking I have V2 but it suffers from all the original problems, just interested if anyone else had a different copy of V1 or V2 for comparison please?
I did end up with a V1, and it's got the errors and crap mastering (luckily only cost me £3).IIRC, @imcal has either both versions or V2.
I've got V2 with the same - what's the V1 total disc time out of interest? V2 is 74.23.
Look at the prices on those lovely looking Blondie sets....
US$431.99 For the Super deluxe? Keep it.
Super ridiculously expensive. Even the 3CD set at £41 in a 'pack', crackers.
The official store has the 3CD at a reasonable £27, with an unreasonable £7.29 postage!
Yeah the official store has the super deluxe at $330 which seems more accurate. That upcharge is absurd.
Music industry doing what it has always done and shortcutting the quickest route to a fast buck. They might be right that the market for this has unlimited £/$ but the pricing feels like they are taking the proverbial!
I love Blondie but not sure I am bothered about alternative takes and demos etc. I have all the albums with bonus stuff on already so unless it's reduced to a bargain price I'll miss this one.
I will dig my copy out of the boxes (it's one I moved into plastic wallets) and check later!
I've been waiting for this as I only really know Blondie through best ofs. It's looking like £90 is the cheapest for the 8CD set?
