    Anyone know if The Associates Sulk features the LP version of Club Country? On the recent Sounds Of The Eighties show which featured an interview with Alan and Michael from the band, the version played was the single version.

    • EW99 says:

      Ian Gilchrist – who seemed to be involved with the reissues in some capacity – assured me elsewhere ( http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/associates-two-cd-deluxe-editions/#comment-1263927 ) that the correct version was used. If it isn’t then mine’s going back!

      • EW99 says:

        Looks like the right version on Google Play – only going by the length of the track, I haven’t actually listened to it yet as I’m going to wait for my CDs.

        • Ian Gilchrist says:

          The Sulk LP (vinyl) and original LP on CD1 in the 2CD edition was remastered from a 1/4″ inch analog album master, re-mastered by Tim Turan and supervised by Michael Dempsey. Correct versions of LP tracks present and accounted for.

          Everyone (including Alan Rankine) says that Sulk sounds better than it has ever sounded (and better than the notoriously erratic inital vinyl pressings – the LP’s dense production confused many manufacturing engineers).

          Press has been positive right across the board.

          Very proud to be leaving Union Square/BMG with The Associates as my final completed project – the Rankine/MacKenzie partnership has been given its due at last.

    Your post on “Changesonebowie” does not show up when you click on it.

  5. John Hirst says:

    Whose idiotic idea was that Bowie promotion. Guarantees I will buy neither version if I can’t get the one I want. I’ll either get it from Ebay or not at all. Reminds me of the last Muse special edition where they gave 2 random art cards out of 10 and no way of getting the others. I therefore didn’t buy it, having bought the previous two Muse box sets. It’s infuriating.

  6. AlexKx says:

    Well, I for one don’t get anything when I click on the “Changesonebowie” article. Just the title. I DID play the part of fool and ordered a copy taking the chance of getting the clear vinyl and the chance that I won’t. That shit does piss me off though. I don’t like that at all. Fuck. Charge extra for the clear but don’t play games like that. I’m gonna be one pissed off little boy if I open that shit up and it is a fucking regular vinyl…

  7. Andrew Mogford says:

    I lucked out and got a clear vinyl. Was almost like Christmas when I was a kid, cracking open that sleeve for the first time :D
