Johnny Hates Jazz reissue will include ‘missing’ B-side

The track listing for the forthcoming 3CD deluxe reissue of Johnny Hates Jazz‘s 1988 album Turn Back The Clock has left some fans scratching their head, since it apparently omits Heart of Gold B-side Leave It Up To Me.

Not so, says the official Johnny Hates Jazz Facebook page. When this very query was brought up in the discussion about the deluxe edition, the response was “‘Leave It Up To Me’ is actually on there, so all the b-sides are included.”

It was pointed out that none of the official track listings, anywhere, indicate this, but the person posting on Facebook (probably frontman Clark Datchler) said “I’ll get that sorted”. This is obviously good news for fans. Note, this isn’t actually relevant with regards to the 2LP vinyl reissue, since that only includes the new acoustic versions and none of the original remixes or B-sides.

Beta Band:  The Three E.P.’s set bonus item

The limited 4LP+CD coloured vinyl box set of The Beta Band‘s The Three E.P.‘s compilation is available to order via the SDE shop right now. SDE pre-orders come with a special reproduction of “The Flower Press”, a short-lived fanzine designed and put together by the band (not available via Amazon).


The Doors Japanese 2 x SHM-CD cancelled

The forthcoming The Doors Waiting For The Sun 2CD+LP super deluxe was available for pre-order in Japan as a 2 x SHM-CD edition. Although pre-ordering this import didn’t save you any money, it was an interesting option for anyone not finding use for the vinyl record within the European/US three-disc set.

Unfortunately, this edition has now been cancelled – for reasons unknown – and fans who pre-ordered have been informed by email this week. So the only option that remains for this product – which contains 14 previously unreleased tracks – is to pre-order the 2CD+LP set, which will be released on 14 September 2018. Full track listing, below.

    Regarding the Doors set – It can be purchased as a ‘Mastered for iTunes’ download for $14.99. I know it’s not a physical format, but if you’re only interested in the audio this might be the best way to go.

    An Australian Amazon update Paul.Amazon.com.auAmazon.com.au had to lodge statements with the Australian corporate regulator ASIC which are then made public.They show that Amazon.com.au was only selling about 3-5% of what Australians were buying from international Amazon sites.Even worse for them two thirds of those sales were from third party marketplace sellers.If their losses continue at the rate reported they would lose over $100million for the year.Things aren’t going well for them!
    The article in the Sydney Morning Herald concludes with “An Amazon spokeswoman declined to comment on the company’s accounts.”

      Thanks, Alan. Australia has long seemed to be an after thought to Amazon and not that important.

    • Roel Glas says:

      Thanks for the update Alan. Just goes to show if you’re not competitive or don’t have the product, people won’t buy & look elsewhere.
      I’ve actually purchased about 5 items (Music) from Marketplace sellers for 2 reasons – Amazon AU doesn’t stock it (or has no stock & state “should ship in 5-8 weeks) or if they do have stock, the Marketplace seller is way cheaper. Even my wife bought a pair of shoes (Skechers) $65 cheaper via a 3rd party seller.
      They then try to steer us to Amazon Global which has even higher prices and outrageous shipping costs
      Time to drop the Geo-block – maybe only for certain items (such as Music)

    That sucks about the canceled WFTS release. Couldn’t really care less about a vinyl copy. I had picked up the debut album [3CD] cheaply on Amazon without the vinyl.

    I wonder if JHJ was going for the old hidden track ruse. Who the heck is The Beta Band? And to The Powers That Be, I would have bought the SHM Doors CDs, but will not keep superfluous vinyl lying around.

    Re: Turn back the clock 3CD
    Great news that the missing B side is now included…
    Now JHJ, how about including the other missing tracks for a complete JHJ experience?
    Me and my foolish heart (original RAK version)
    Heart of gold (7″ version)
    Don’t say it’s love – 7″ Remix (found on the 20th Anniversary version)
    Turn back the clock – unreleased version (found on the 20th Anniversary version)
