Worth it if it's got nice sounding masterings of the Kamera stuff

Has that so what abt it single been on any of the expanded albums or earlier comps? I fucking LOVE that song

harbinger of failure (Jon not Jon), Monday, 18 September 2017 16:17 (two months ago) Permalink

no, it really bums me out that those remixes are only on a ridiculously rare promo whitelabel

I also love it, great album opener

oh I'm wrong, it's here!

Yeah, I got that last week. Not played it yet but.

The singles seem to be representing the 7" singles, mostly.

Mark G, Monday, 18 September 2017 23:21 (two months ago) Permalink

not sure why they split the b-sides from the a-sides here, that seems weird. but cool. I'm not going to buy this, but I will stream it.

I can imagine me sorting the tracks back into order..

Having said that, the aside sequences of any of the first three are v.strong

Mark G, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 06:47 (two months ago) Permalink

Oh look, "Rude (all the time)", only came out on limited (500) 7", currently more expensive than the price of this box set..

Mark G, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 06:54 (two months ago) Permalink

are CDs still a thing? Records for me pls - also the Peel session boxset would be th most stupendous thing
on record. By Xmas would be great - many thx.

The Ed's Babe b-sides (including "The Knight The Devil & Death" are here:

Also on the Listening In (Lost Singles Tracks 1990-92) compilation, a great way to hoover up a bunch of that stuff.

harbinger of failure (Jon not Jon), Tuesday, 19 September 2017 11:13 (two months ago) Permalink

there we go, that's what I need. used to have the Ed's Babe CD single but sold it.

sleeve, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 14:06 (two months ago) Permalink

It's a great CD; Conway Paton put it together. The Fall: Early Singles is good too but I still hope there might be better sources out there for those kamera sides (which are sometimes my very favorite fall stuff, period)

harbinger of failure (Jon not Jon), Tuesday, 19 September 2017 14:46 (two months ago) Permalink

speaking of Kamera releases, does the legendary withdrawn "Marquis Cha-Cha"/"Room To Live" single have the same versions as the LP?

Sometimes Look, Know/I'm Into C.B. is my favorite Fall single

sleeve, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 14:49 (two months ago) Permalink

you guys have to buy this too. you have to buy everything.

hmm yeah that one's a bit more comprehensive but it's really just the three 2CD reissues in a box, unlike Jon's single-disc comp it has "Arid Al's Dream" so I will probably end up with the 6CD set...

sleeve, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 16:50 (two months ago) Permalink

Yeah fucking Arid Al's Dream which is probably my favorite of all the 90s odds and sods

I think it also turned up one other place. The sanctuary Box Set?

harbinger of failure (Jon not Jon), Tuesday, 19 September 2017 17:24 (two months ago) Permalink

It's on the indispensable "A World Bewitched 1990-2000" comp.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 17:59 (two months ago) Permalink

Oh yeah! That comp really is excellent. It looks like it's going to be one of those many ripoff comps but it's awesome

harbinger of failure (Jon not Jon), Tuesday, 19 September 2017 18:02 (two months ago) Permalink

Can only underline how great A World Bewitched is. I've handed it to a couple of people not familiar with the Fall as a portal into their work and I've had about a 50% success rate. Which is not half bad is it?

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 19:14 (two months ago) Permalink

argh I need that one eventually for the collaboration tracks on the 2nd disc.

sleeve, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 19:22 (two months ago) Permalink

You really do! It's amazing how MES can make any band into The Fall.

And my favorite 90s oddity is "Noel's Chemical Effluence". Totally alien sounding.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 21:25 (two months ago) Permalink

that song is so goddamn great.

harbinger of failure (Jon not Jon), Tuesday, 19 September 2017 22:12 (two months ago) Permalink

originally from The 27 Points, right? I think that's the only version out there.

sleeve, Tuesday, 19 September 2017 22:13 (two months ago) Permalink

yes

thanks to this thread I snarfed up used copies of the 2CDs for Extricate and Shift-work from a US address with cheap shipping, looking forward to finally hearing those "So What About It" remixes

sleeve, Thursday, 21 September 2017 22:06 (two months ago) Permalink

really want to hear "Where's The Fuckin Taxi? Cunt (Mix 17)" - also not on this new box which is especially annoying because they do include one of the four tracks from the CD release

Sounds more or less exactly half bad, one way or another.
