  1. i’m interested in these releases BUT had hoped the price of these would be a little less than the cheapest ive found online @£13.99 from an online shop i dint usually use and the one i do is a little more expensive @£15.99, but still tempted to buy even if i have to hang on a few month as seems an interesting set now it includes the bbc sessions

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Yes, the Suede reissues seem better value at around £9.99 or £10.99. Even so these do look good and are going to be hard to resist even at £15.99. It wasn’t that long ago record companies expected us to pay that just for a DVD never mind a 2CD+DVD!

    This is one artist that I felt would include ALL the mixes to their singles when producing a deluxe edition. Sadly, there is a lot of tracks that are left off. Would much rather had the remixes vs. those Radio 1 Sessions. It’s going to have to be a really good price before I pick this up. Wow. Super-disappointed.
