Misprinted lyrics?

There seems to be a difference between what the printed lyrics says and what is actually sung in "The Greatest Story Ever Told": The print says: Around her neck, was draped a snake, she held him to her And on her arm, a silver charm, with Roman numbers He saw an eye gleaming like a coal and breathin...

Re: 40th Anniversary of the first two albums

OK, the mighty Duck has consulted his sacred diaries and has some answers to your mysteries!!! The following dates only apply to the UK unless otherwise noted. A single was released on 10/3/75 which I assume was "Shake My Head And Leave". The first album was released 2/20/76. The second single: "Do...

Re: My Fantasy 2006 Vertigo City Boy Series Reissue

Totally agree with that. Nice work! I'm specially amazed how they pulled off a cover like DATR decades before photoshop!! :D As a matter fact, I mailed a question to the photographer Paul Wakefield himself and got this reply back: It was a tricky set-up and long before Photoshop as you rightly say....

Re: The Day the Earth Caught Fire getting reissued?

Anyway, it's good to learn that the reissue is, it seems, being licensed through Universal Music, UK. Did anyone at your source talk about any remastering, though? ...Oh, and that bit about using liner notes from "Heads Are Rolling" is not particularly reassuring: Does this mean that the partially ...

Re: The Day the Earth Caught Fire getting reissued?

I got in touch with Talking Elephant about this release.

They say the masters were via Universal Music UK. Packaging contains a four page booklet with four photos of the band, and some liner notes used on "Heads Are Rolling" (!). For the back inlay they have used the original single artwork.

Re: Collaborative Spotify Playlist - Contribute!

Hello [email protected]! From within the Spotify app/program and logged in: first you have to "Follow" the list and then you can add the song by clicking "Add to playlist". How you do all that depends on the platform, but for example a Windows-pc should have the "Follow" button at the top of the playlist. The...

Christmas is coming up... Spotify is now available in loads of countries. I'm sure you'll have some time listening to great music. Why don't add songs to the collaborative Spotify playlist! It's still available! :cheers: https://open.spotify.com/user/etamyrer/playlist/3hI0ItPzEwrIFZ5E4GbbmM or you'...

Re: RIP David Bowie

I usually don't participate on these RIP threads, but Bowie and his music mean very much to me. Hearing the news about his death was a complete shock, also a weird feeling like it was a relative who had died. My favourite Bowie track is "Word on a Wing", followed by "Ashes to Ashes" and "Heroes". Th...

It's Personal - redesign

Just for fun I made this redesign of IP, with Queen album "Hot Space" little in mind. I took the liberty to change the order of the faces, following the same principle as The Beatles "Let It Be"; with the most prominent songwriters on upper deck. Moving Max to right and putting Mike on lower deck, a...

Yeah, and 5705 had only become a minor hit then! :lol:

Where is Geir, we need to straighten up this topic again! :lol:

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Besides the bonus tracks (which on the other hand, have been long available for us in the vault), I think the liner notes with Chris and Mike participating, is the biggest contribution for this reissue. There are some tidbits, that at least I didn't know about, such as considering bandnames "Sons of...

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Remember back when John accused Paul of only writing "silly love songs"? Well, it wasn't John who penned Helter Skelter. No one can with even the best of intentions call that a love song. That must have been the closest thing to punk 8 years before anyone even had a clue about the concept. And Stev...

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

remarkable... imho the last two albums, without Chris and Steve, are the least progressive of all seven... Exactly what I was going to say! Especially "HAR", featuring tracks like "Speechless" and "You're Leaving Me" which are even timeless I think, and could have been written for any of those boy ...
