What would go on the Love of Will Reissue?
« on: May 03, 2010, 05:52:53 PM »
The reissue series has led me to believe that dreams do come true. Every official release reissued at a standard to shame allcomers!  :o A 7inch vinyl replica box set!  :o A 10 CD box set of rarities!  :o A book of poems and a book of recollections/essays!:o Films!:o Gigs !  :o A Susans Box ! :o

So let's dream a little. What would be on the deluxe reissue of LOW? Taking inspiration from the forum audio page, the reissues and pushing it I would go for a McComb Box....

CD1: LOW
CD2: LOW rehearsals and demos
CD3: Singles and EPs - I Don't Need You [w Adam Peters]; The Message; Setting you Free; Clear out My Mind
CD4: Live Gig Red Ponies Tour 1994 [Graham has posted some fantastic stuff]
CD5: Costar Windsor Demos - mixed down versions
CD6: Ephemera: Four hours Sleep songs, live Costar bits, I'm Still Alive and Well, Red Ponies on Later, alternative takes [e.g. Devil Please].

I'd buy it! Whaddya think?

I'd certainly get down a polling station to put a cross against the name of this bitch.
I wish that I knew better than to think that I knew better

Glee - are we anywhere nearer a resolution on the reissue of LOW? Could we have an update....?

Another pipe dream.....as an alternative, you could do a LOW reissue without LOW.....Simply knock off the 1st CD of this box and release the rest. I am using as my precedent the Trashcans compilations that came out when Go Discs went bust. None of the offical LP releases or singles could be reissued. So the band put out all of the b-sides, live tracks and demos instead [As 2 disc sets "Zebra of the Family" and "On A B Road"]. This was possible because, as I think is fairly standard, the band retained the rights to the non album tracks. As teh live tracks, fragments and costar demos have never had an official release, they could go on too.This might force the official re-release of LOW too.

I believe there is movement at the station.

You need to check The Man From Snowy River (poem not movie).

The Man From Snowy River, by A.B. (Banjo) Paterson [CP]

There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around
That the colt from old Regret had got away,
And had joined the wild bush horses - he was worth a thousand pound,
So all the cracks had gathered to the fray.
All the tried and noted riders from the stations near and far
Had mustered at the homestead overnight,
For the bushmen love hard riding where the wild bush horses are,
And the stock-horse snuffs the battle with delight.

I guess there's a bidding war going on.....

No I was simply suggesting that it's closer than it has been.

We just need to send the flintstones flying and we should be done.

Seems like an appropriate moment to recycle an earlier post.
