    Hey, about the Moody Blues, any idea if the re-recorded versions of “Question” and “Isn’t Life Strange” from the 1989 Best Of CD are anywhere on the new box set?

      Unfortunately it went back.. first to 24th June, but now apparently 8th July! Frustrating, I know.

    Thanks for featuring the Showaddywaddy box set Paul, as it was my project with Edsel / Demon. For the first time we were given total access to the original quarter inch production masters, as well as lead singer / songwriter Dave Bartram’s tapes of rarities and demos. It’s great to see original albums from 1974-1983 finally released here as mini-vinyl replicas, and Michael Neidus / David Beaufoy at Demon were fantastic at project managing the release. Only 1,250 pressed so it will become a true collector’s item in the future. Amazon pre-ordered more than half the pressing, so the pre-orders were VERY healthy :-)

      Hey Steve – no problem. Looks like a good set. Remember them from Saturday morning TV in the late 70s!
