    When ordering from SDE do you pay inadvance or on shipping ?

  3. Tim-Meh says:

    Dropping the ‘The’ was career mistake.

  4. Paul Wren says:

    Yes, that’s a nice package and I’ve ordered it from SDE.

  5. Jules(Rules) says:

    What we really need is an affordable CD option, perhaps a reprint or expansion of the old deluxe edition…

  6. Mike T says:

    Just fantastic. This could have been a 3 disc with the BBC sessions and Gloria etc. But that’s ok as it’s all available. What a great record!

  7. Peter says:

    I hope it sounds better than my 2cd! Looking forward to this one :)) Ordered!

    The 2CD Deluxe Edition really needs a reissue.
