    Paul, I wonder if you have any interest in Riverside? They’re a prog band from Poland that’s very highly thought of by e.g. the German “eclipsed” magazine, and their current album Wasteland is getting a reissue that, to me, looks very well made. Surround and hi-res stereo mix on DVD plus a bonus disc.

    For those of you in the United states, target is having a buy 2 get one free on music, and movies. Worth checking out.

    • Larry Davis says:

      Yeah, only if Target’s selection were better…the only upcoming exclusives of note are the Beck (1 bonus track), Rod Stewart Philharmonic (7 bonus tracks, 2CD) & the Who (3 bonus tracks)…

  3. Kennysucina says:

    Also out, Bruce Springsteen’s Western Stars – Songs From The Film. I bought it and will buy the Blu-ray of the film when it comes out. I will then have three copies of an album I don’t even like much. Yes, I need help. At least The Boss will be happy with the boost to his coffers. Does The Priory help people like me?

  4. DaveM says:

    I have Michael Kiwanuka (the one I am most looking forward to), ELO and the Doors TSP (single CD) all preordered for Friday. A good couple of weeks, following Van Morrison and Neil Young’s new CDs last week.

  5. Larry Davis says:

    Question…how do you check Amazon how many copies left unsold there are?? Someone mentioned how to find out…it’s good to know whether it’s safe to cancel an order or not (expenses)…to order at a later time so it doesn’t sell out on you…would like to know whether I took a serious risk in cancelling the Transvision Vamp & Michael Kiwanuka & reorder on Friday…would be a great tool…thanks…

    • KevinK says:

      Sometimes the page tells you “Only xx copies in stock”. Alternatively, try adding lots of copies to your basket and it should tell you you the number of copies they have. For example trying to add 100 copies of the signed Transvision Vamp box this morning gave me the message “This seller has only 34 of these available.”
      (Don’t forget to delete them from your basket afterwards though! :) )

      • Peter Muscutt says:

        @KevinK – unless you have LOADS of friends and family who really, really love Transvision Vamp, obviously. ;-p

        • KevinK says:

          Not that many! :)
          Incidently, this afternoon I got “This seller has only 37 of these available.” so either cancellations or Wendy popped by HQ to sign a few more.

  6. Larry Davis says:

    Will be getting the ELO…and being there are copies left of both Transvision Vamp & Michael Kiwanuka still available, I cancelled for now (unexpected expenses, they would charge me somewhere Tuesday to Thursday), and will order them both back on Friday when I am paid from my job…as for M People Gold, had that on preorder, no prob with being moved up to Friday…I think they are great…a mix of Britpop, soul & house I love…I may get the deluxes of their 3 albums & I do have one of Heather Small’s solo albums…

  7. Mike says:

    Also out is Bananarama In Stereo Live

    And Alphabeat. I don’t know what’s cool anymore.

  8. Gisabun says:

    Anyone look at the Amazon Canada price for Afraid of Sunlight deluxe CD/BR set? More expensive than Japan! It’s about double the price it should be.
    I’m sure fans who procrastinated should order from the Marillion shop. Too late for the signed sheet but still, the price from Marillion’s is still excellent.

  9. Jeremy says:

    Well I did see Jeff at Wembley and I have to say I found the video (not the song) a bit cringeworthy. A jumble of clips of band members playing other songs. No thanks. But the song itself is OK, not Jeff’s best but better than many. I’ve pre-ordered the album.

  10. Jack says:

    The Stones box is not out this week. 11/15 is the new date.

  11. Peter says:

    I want the stones but it’s just so overpriced

    • Andreas says:

      Right. I predict that next year it will be available for 80 :-)

    • Gisabun says:

      @Peter
      Ya. seriously. ABCKO is really trying to milk their stuff with ridiculously expensive releases. Every one of their recent releases [even the “base” editions] have been pricey.
      And they love to throw in the 7″ vinyls.

      • John Simmons says:

        I know that it’s easier said than done but if you are a CD lover and not a vinyl lover the Stones output is not as money grabbing and exorbitant!

        When it comes to buying I’m just as tempted as most of you but I’m able to keep a lid on my budget as I have no trouble walking away from Vinyl.

        Anyway before i get too self righteous i should add that i succumbed to the OMD box set for £73 last week!

  12. MIkeW says:

    Amazon emailed last week re my M People preorder, and the actual release date of the next batch of Gold compilations is supposedly pushed back 1 week to 15th November. However on their website it shows M People only as brought forward 1 week from original release date to November 1st. This may be a typo by Amazon?!

    • MikeW says:

      Update Nov 1st: M People Gold is indeed out today, and has also reduced in price on release. So it appears Amazon sent me a spurious email saying their supplier’s delay meant item expected Nov 21st – hohum. At least my pre-order price has also gone down! Hopefully they’ll send soon.

    Three letters…….
    E.L.O.

    • Peter Muscutt says:

      Anyone else a bit underwhelmed by the new E.L.O. track? It’s not to say the rest of the album is going to be duff, but ‘From Out Of Nowhere’ just meanders a bit without ever going anywhere, no real hook, no real spark to draw you in. It reminded me of endlessly circling my local Tesco car park on a wet Saturday afternoon trying to find a parking space…

      • Andreas says:

        There is a great cover of that track on YouTube in ELO 80s style, which is fantastic. Worth checking out. Also by the same guy,: a version of “Beatles Forever”! :-)

        • Ryk says:

          Andreas, do you have a link to that”From Out of Nowhere” 80s style YouTube cover? Who’s it by?

          • Andreas says:

            Ryk, the guy is called ENIAC. Please also check out his version of the unreleased “Beatles Forever”. Talented…. Let me know what you think :-)

      • TheProgster says:

        Peter fear not I feel exactly the same but the good news is that there are 2 great stonking tracks on the album one is “Time Of Our Life” and the other is “One More Time” I was lucky enough last wednesday to find a download to listen to until my CD arrives on Friday and I can tell you now those 2 tracks a both cracking songs amongst some other gems….Enjoy !!!

      • Ryk says:

        Peter, there is a newer track, “Time of Our Life,” that was put on YouTube 3 days ago, that is only relevant to those who saw them live in Wembley recently. Not even as good as “From Out of Nowhere.” I’m still buying the album though, as I have everything else.
