    It will go on go a few years more I guess. However the numbers sold are pretty small I would imagine compared to back in the day when folk queued outside stores overnight. I am 60 which my guess is on the younger side of the box buying brigade. None of the folk I know under 50 are interested and none can afford these sets anyway.

    Good point! A different mix can be possible.

    Yep, thought the consensus was that we'd wait until the official announcement before starting a new thread. Apparently not. :sigh:

    Official news only links to the US store.
    Still no UK/EU link for the big box.....

    Do we have any UK sales links yet? Was hoping to get something before I had to go out.

    I gotta say, I've never placed a pre-order (and been charged, no less!) prior to the official announcement.

    Again, a big thanks to @Marry a Carrot for just sharing the info without any confusing and cryptic hints or teases. I figured you might know something when you said replied that the bundled set might just be a slip case... of course, as you later shared, you didn't know about Wings Over Europe when you wrote that!

    I won't be itching or whining about the price. Yeah, it's pretty damn steep. But this is what I've wanted from an Archive edition. These two albums especially have such a dearth of known material that anything less than what we are getting would be a disappointment. I know I'm getting way ahead of it all, but I can only hope that London Town and Back To The Egg will be treated similarly.

    IF the double disc Red Rose Speedway is using alternate mixes, one would hope that I Lie Around is still the normal single mix, since it doesn't appear anywhere else. On a similar note, I'm curious now as to what mix we'll be getting for Mama's Little Girl: the previously released mix, which features overdubs done in the 80's, or an unreleased version without such adornments. What will Seaside Woman be like? There is a bootleg of a version as the song was originally, before it was spruced up in 77. And maybe I asked this, but what versions of Tragedy and Night Out will we be getting? I'm not really looking for answers, I should mention. These are all just my reactions and rants. I'll be able to listen for myself and answer 'em all in two months!
