Intrigued I checked it out to find it as 2022 remaster with two extra tracks, Pure and Easy (life house chronicles mix) and take 14 of Love Ain't for Keeping. So gave it a test drive to find it sounded so good, another classic album that has been given a boost like Animals last year. So for £6 I bought it and have played it a few times. No here's the mystery, it's only available on the French website not the English site. Quboz now have their own forum and have been asked about other albums getting the 24 bit treatment. This is down to record companies distribution and decisions. So at the moment I have only seen it there but if it becomes more readily available I would recommend it. Not sure whether there is/will be a vinyl version either so keep your eyes peeled.

Still in pre-order stage, so the piggy is safe for the moment. :roll: :lol:

They must need the money. I saw some photos from their tour here over the past week or two lots of empty £100 seats, I wonder why. I also know someone who paid £65 ticket for Peter Gabriel in Manchester. When he came on moved down and took a £300 seat three rows from the front where most of the seats were filled by people moving down to fill them.

Their last album never sold and ended up on the bargains page. Pink Floyd, Bowie, etc are getting released regularly with all kinds of extras added for sales. Best just buying the album if your old one is knackered. I’ve been buying all The Band box sets 12 months after they’ve been released for 1/3 or less than original price. 8)
