Oasis box set update
Further details have emerged about Oasis‘ Be Here Now box set which is due out next month…
As well as the three CDs and 52-page book etc., the box will include a seven-inch single featuring two early demos of Stand By Me and Going Nowhere recorded by Mark Coyle. It will also include a “promo-only” CD (bit of a contradiction in terms if they’re selling it as part of this set) of You Know What I Mean? (NG’s 2016 Rethink).
Also, the previously mentioned “bonus 12-inch white label” will include seven of the Mustique demos, but these are all available on the third CD.
Finally, I know you’d all be disappointed if this didn’t include a Be Here Now embossed enamel key ring and a set of four postcards, so pleased to confirmed they are in the box!
The box is now much cheaper than it was when announced in July. But unfortunately ‘much cheaper’ still means £90.
Erasure box set track listing
All the details for the Erasure From Moscow to Mars box have been announced. It’s a 13-disc box – 12 CDs and a DVD. It will retail for £80 and can only be ordered from Lexer Music (the Erasure shop) and PledgeMusic. This doesn’t mean they won’t turn up on Amazon and other channels at a later date, but for now you have just two options. Both offer six bonus downloads as part of the package.
Pledge have their usual array of purchasing options, with various bundles that include T-shirts, Tote bags etc. There is also a From Moscow To Mars Party on 4th November in Birmingham, but that appears to be sold out.
Jethro Tull price drop
If you thought £35 was a bit steep for the admittedly excellent Jethro Tull Stand Up 2CD+DVD reissue, then I’m please to report that it’s down to under £25 on Amazon in the UK. The so-called ‘Elevated Edition’ is out on 18 November.
