Prince / Nothing Compares 2 U (seven-inch)

The excitement at the release of this Prince rarity is rather soured by the unabashed commercialism demonstrated the Estate. The picture disc version of Nothing Compares 2 U can only be ordered from the official site in the US and you can’t even buy it on its own –  just as part of a vinyl+T-shirt bundle! The black vinyl version is widely available, though. Read more

  1. Pete {in Australia} says:

    ABSOLUTELY super excited about the Kissing The Pink “What Noise?”. For years thought about contacting Cherry Red, to suggest it being released on CD. Was in heaven when Cherry Red released, their first album “Naked”, which is one of my fav albums.

    Shame that they did not add, the B side to the single Mr Blunt….. “Water in My Eye”, as it would of made that CD, for me, perfect.

    ANYWAYS, I was excited when “What Noise?”, was finally available here in Australia, to download, at the beginning of the year, that I downloaded it immediately, I found out.

    Got an email from Cherry Red, a month ago, and well, BOY was I over the moon, when i saw this was being released. :)
    NOW hanging for my copy of the CD to arrive, from the UK. Cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. O(+> Peter B says:

    Pleasantly surprised to see Pseudo Echo on there. Love An Adventure had different cover art in Australia. I’m a big fan of their first album, Autumnal Park, which is more electronic. ‘Listening’ and ‘A Beat For You’ were great singles, worth investigating. I bought Autumnal Park on iTunes as I could never find it on CD or vinyl anywhere.

    • O(+> Peter B says:

      Actually, I just checked the tracklisting of the Love An Adventure CD and ‘Listening’ and ‘A Beat For You’ are on there – totally different tracklisting to what was released in Australia.

    • Larry Davis says:

      Me too…I want it but with a price drop… I like the way the band evolved…full electronic on the debut, then more guitars on Love An Adventure… Then almost a powerpop/hard Rock sound on Race, like a better new wave-informed Bon Jovi, which works a whole lot better than you would think… They even grew their hair long and looked like Bon Jovi…and they got destroyed by an unforgiving public, but the music holds up brilliantly… The losers are the haters, not Pseudo Echo…but the band broke up after Race but reformed like 10 years ago and the reunion album they did harks back to their 80s electronic sound but updated ideas…very underrated band!!

  3. Brad Breault says:

    I’m with the other Beautiful South fans out there, I’d buy some well-mastered 2CD reissues of their catalog, with all the b-sides put on 2nd discs as I bought a handful of CD singles but never got them all. Also, it seems a well-mixed official live album is due for them too, I still have an MP3 disc of various live tracks pulled from Napster in the late 90’s that makes me think there are some tapes somewhere waiting to be released. As a US fan who never got to see Housemartins/Beautiful South/Heaton solo etc. live I’d gladly pay for a well-made live document from them. Is there something out there already I might be missing?

    • Phil Wilson says:

      There is A Beautiful South live at the BBC Box Set and 2 CD version (I think you need both for all the tracks). The Box Set has a live concert from Blackburn on the 1992 tour, and a third disc of live tracks from 96, 97 & 99. Disc 1 is BBC session tracks from 89 to 05. There is also a DVD with many live appearances. Only issue is, these now go for around £100, whereas I remember I think it was HMV or Amazon selling them off for £6.99 (ish) a few years ago.

  4. wem51 says:

    Any idea if any of the Janis Ian CDs will have any bonus material?

  5. DJ Control says:

    Buyer beware on the Sailor box set. When 7t’s (Cherry Red) reissued them a few years back album 1 & 2 Self titled and Troble respectively were mastered from distortion riddled vinyl records. Here’s hoping they HAVE found the Epic master tapes this time…

    • Derek Langsford says:

      The description at Amazon UK says, “Mastered from the original Epic Records tapes by Alan Wilson.”

  6. Kevin M says:

    THE FALL’s bizarre but rare LEVITATE album also out on the 25th. Expanded 2CD and limited edition reasonably-priced triple vinyl..

  7. CJ says:

    I wish someone would do deluxe CD reissues for Beautiful South. There are so many bonus tracks laying around on b-sides. I started trying to collect them all awhile ago, but it was becoming too complicated and expensive. As successful and renowned as they are, I’m surprised no one seems to have jumped on a re-issue campaign.

    • CakeSaint says:

      Hear hear! I’ve also picked up an old single here or there when finding at good price, but there are so many two-part singles that trying to get them all would cost a fortune from different sellers on the internet. I’d buy every album reissue if they did them (or a box set!).

      • Andrew M says:

        I’ve always enjoyed the beautiful south but only through their greatest hits releases. So I’m taking the opportunity to buy these re-releases. Got welcome to, which is fantastic. No idea “song for whoever” was so long in its original form!

        Track listing for 0898 looks great too so have preordered that alongside my prince preorder.

    • Edward Bates says:

      I’ve done my own versions a few years ago complied of everything they officially released mixed with, ahem, unofficial stuff which should’ve been.

      Welcome To The Beautiful South – 2 cds
      Choke – 2 cds
      0898 – 3 cds
      Miaow – 2 cds
      Carry On Up The Charts – 3 cds
      Blue Is The Colour – 3 cds
      Quench – 3 cds
      Painting It Red – 2 cds
      Solid Bronze – 2 cds
      Gaze – 2 cds
      Golddiggas, Headnodders And Pholk Songs – 2 cds
      Superbi – 2cds

      Now that would be a helluva box set.

  9. Alan says:

    When I originally ordered the Janis Ian cd’s Amazon looked the autorip albums straight away. All these included some bonus live tracks which I don’t think are on the physical product. Does however look like these tracks are not showing against the reissues now so late purchasers may not get them.

  10. Edward Bates says:

    About time. 0898 is one of my most favourite albums. I know its poppy but its Paul Heaton at his best. Shame Choke isn’t being re-issued though.

  11. Stan Butler says:

    Sweet’s ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’, ‘Give Us A Wink’, ‘The Rainbow’, ‘Off The Record’ also released this week. All £5.99.

    • SimonF says:

      Or you could just get the utterly wonderful Sensational Sweet CD box set which contains all of the above with loads of bonus material and exclusive BBC sessions and all exclusive single A and B sides. The entire RCA catalogue. Highly highly recommended
