Paul Taylor-Greaves

So, now this has been out a while, has anyone done a comparison to see how much of this is duplicated on the Edsel reissues/Megarama cd? Is it worth shelling out for them all?

claudio

I checked tracks too, and that’s it: the 6 tracks mentioned above (from Megarama 3cd set) are not in the Singles Box! + : track 8, from cd 2, are not there too… Or am i mistaken?

Glenn

Just got this box and am checking tracks vs Megarama 3CD. Appears the following from the Megarama 3CD are NOT on the box set. Can someone confirm or are the mix names different? Thanks.

1-7 Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye) (Acid Remix ’88) Remix – Alan Coulthard 6:16
1-8 Tripping On Your Love (The Sturm Mix) Remix – Larry Sturm 3:59
2-10 Tripping On Your Love (The Lovable Love-Dove Caper) Remix – Terry Farley & Pete Heller 6:27
3-2 Shy Boy (’88 Remix) Remix – Alan Coulthard 6:34
3-8 Ready Or Not (Jolley & Swain 12″ Mix) Remix – Jolley & Swain 5:33
3-10 Strike It Rich (Dub) Remix – Phil Harding 5:13

Griffin

@Kiefer2, thanks! I’ve been told by a friend that they re-did Nathan Jones CD! I wrote them about the corrected CD without the glitch. They sent me the replacement CD. I’ve got it in about 7 days (UK>NL).

Glenn

Who did you contact and how?

Griffin

, this was the emailaddress 2e.DMG.Info2@bbc.com

Glenn

Thanks Griffin. I have sent them an email. Really appreciate the heads up.

CakeSaint

The Bananarama Mega-Mix (10″ and 12″ versions) on Disc 21 (I Want You Back) sound very much like vinyl rips to me, and not really good ones. There is a hum in the background that is noticeable when you transition from another track on that disc, and the sound is not crisp like the rest of the tracks. When they sing “locked in a prison cell” at 0:16 on the 10″ version, there is a telltale blur of distortion on the word “cell,” and it can be heard on other “s” sounds as well.

Perhaps the masters couldn’t be found. But a vinyl transfer can sound better than this.

Max

I noticed that too cakeSaint and thought that maybe the DJ used vinyl rips himself as original source.
Could this be it ?

CakeSaint

Max, I posted the same comment over at Discogs and someone mentioned that he thought the original mixes were made from vinyl sources, so that might be it. I haven’t heard the original 12″ but it might explain the sound.

Guillermo

This is called sibilance.I am glad to know that only the megahits were from vinyl source as I find these totally useless even to listen to.

Griffin

There’s a jump on Nathan Jones CD-14 @ 1:15! They talked about this on the PWL forum. Some said this 12″ Mix (without the jump) is also on The Twelve Inches Of Bananarama! Other said it’s not the same mix. Nathan Jones CD-03 & 14 sound a like but they are slightly different as well. I hope Edsel will replace the disc!

Kiefer2

I believe the “Extended Version” on the 3cd Megarama set is the same and it does not have the glitch. The “12 Inches of Bananarama ” version is different than the others.

Darryl Nelson

I love love love Strike It Rich but the mixes are weird. There is:

Album Version (3.29) – sounds more demo-like (no snare)
7″ Version (5.12) – from the LT&H CD
Edit (2:18) – from LT&H CD
Full Length Club Mix (5:14) – from the LT&H CD.
12″ Version (6:00) – from WOW Deluxe
Dub (5.13)

That’s a very long 7″ Version, and the “Full Length Club Mix” is not really full length, is it? It is the same length as the 7″ LOL. And the edit… who fades a song during the second chorus… gahhhh! Seems like a weird thing to do, where did that originally come from?

David

What is the difference between A Trick Of The Night [Original Jolley & Swain 12” Mix] and [Original PWL Remix]. Can somebody gives me running time? Thanks

Fil

Where is the Nathan Jones (Psycho Radio Edit) as found on the US Greatest Hits Collection? I find that version far superior than any other. Also, would have loved to see an album edit of the original More than Physical but I guess it doesn’t exist or there was no room. And the Tripping on Your Love (Metropolis Mix Edit) didn’t fit!!!

David

i was told Only your love “Love Mix” is the same same as “Youth and Trash mix” Does anyone can tell me?

Kiefer2

Other than the time diferenece, they are the same with the “Love Mix” fading out later.

David

@Edwin
Only 12 tracks on cd instead of 14 listed on tracklist & back cover??

kiefer2

No-there are 14 tracks, but some have the same #s (e.g. 2 are labelled #9).

Edwin

Did you know that Tripping On Your Love listings are incorrectly printed?Listed at 14 tracks but only 12 listed in the wrong order for the last few.

Sean Peele

I am still on the fence about buying this, given the price. Is there any plan for a comprehensive review of the set in the near future?

David

“Desire dub” is part of Cruel summer’89….It is actually the dub version for the Venus “Greatest remix”

Tom M

Anyone else compare CD15 of this collection with CD10 of the SAW box set? Not an exact match, never heard of Venus [Desire Dub], and didn’t see it on the 2CD+DVD edition.

Tom M

“Especially sucks knowing that so many of you in the States already got it last week…”

I live in the states and I got mine last week because it was ordered from a US retailer. Got a good price, much better than Amazon (US or UK). It pays to shop around.

Patrick

anyone else in Canada still waiting for their box set????? I’ve ordered very often from amazon.co.uk…just since the beginning of 2015 this is my 7th order..and they usually take from 3 to 6 work days….it’s now going on 10 work days tomorrow(thursday)…not counting that 2 weekends have gone by too…I’m getting worried…and dissapointed everytime the mailman gives me a package or a delivery notice when I’m at work….and it turns out to be an item I’m not WATING SO MUCH FOR!!!!Especially sucks knowing that so many of you in the States already got it last week…

At least my chinese copy of Madonna’s Ghost town maxi cd has finally arrived this morning after an entire month :)

Gordon

Patrick, I had a notice left in my mailbox today stating that they tried to deliver it on Sept. 8th while I was at work. Not only will I have to go to the post office to get it, I’ll have to pay over $30 in duty and taxes.

Patrick

Hey Gordon..i take it you’re in Canada if you’re telling me about your missed delivery….why didn’t they leave you a notice card on the day they tried to deliver it,instead of 2 days later? If they tried on the 8th with you and i still didn,t get it today(the 10th) chances are I’ll get it tomorrow….and will have to get it at the post office if it doesn’t fit in my mailbox…hope i don,t have to pay import taxes too….though it has never happened to me with amazon.co.uk in the last 10 years….

But if it isn’t here by tomorrow it is officially late cause it was sceduled to arrive on the 11th at the latest….last time that happend to me,i had a 3 cd shipment and it was 2 days overdue…i was on their customer chatroom and they were about to ship me a replacement shipment with the fastest shipping..all free of charge…very nice of them…but the mailman rang the doorbell and had it in his hands…just in time for me to have the guy at amazon cancel the replacement…

At least you know you’ll have your copy in your hands very soon :)

Gordon

Yes, Patrick, I’m in Canada. I have no idea why they didn’t leave the notice card the same time they tried to deliver it. That was odd. This is the first time I’ve had to pay duty/taxes on a shipment from any of the Amazon sites, but it may be due to the dollar value of the goods being higher than usual. Anyway, I now have it in my possession, and I don’t work these next two days, so I’ll be totally preoccupied with it. I hope yours arrives on Friday. :)

Patrick

nope i didn’t get it…i chatted with someone from customer service at amazon.co.uk and they told me it should have arrived…but i gotta wait till the 17th to see if it shows up..if not they will send me a replacement….I’m really bummed out!

As for paying duty taxes on yours.it’s just the luck of the draw….i was once told by someone that works at customs that often they only charge taxes on random items….the amount of the package doesn,t always play in it….i just got a Star wars card set worth 275$ and i didn’t have to pay taxes… guess you were just unlucky….

I took last monday’s holiday for this coming monday..so would be nice to get it in the morning..at least I’d have a few hours to listen to part of the set.

[…] To be honest, I think the price will drop anyway, as has been the case with similar sets such as Bananarama and Belinda […]

Kiefer2

Everyone please ignore me-I answered my own questions-Paul, anything you can do about an edit feature would be greatly appreciated by me and anyone who bothered with my easily answered posts! :)

Kiefer2

Sorry-it’s the “SIR” version on the “Love Truth & Honesty” snap-pack.

Kiefer2

Does anyone know what the version of “Strike it Rich” is on the Japanese 2 track snap-pack? Across all the versions/remasters I haven’t seen any version with that timing (5:02). Could it be the US 7″ Version?

Carlos

Does anyone else have an error in the 7-Inch Mix of “Only Your Love” (track 1)? It occurs around 3:28-3:31.

It’s one of my favorites and unfortunately there’s a glitch! :( At least the Milky Bar Mix was fixed.

Kiefer2

I listened to it right now-no glitch.

Kiefer2

There does seem to be a glitch (like an audible “swipe”) in the instrumental of Robert DeNiro at around the 0.40-0.44 second mark. (during the “watching a film or a face on the wall” line). This isn’t a complaint-the set is stellar-just something I noticed.

Lieven

You’re right about that small glitch in the instrumental of Robert De Niro’s Waiting. I could easily fix this in Adobe Audition.

Aww man, I hope it was just an error during the rip process and not the disc. It’s one of my absolute favourites! Thanks for responding Kiefer2! Wish me luck (please).

“Does anyone know what version Track #1 is on the “More Than Physical” disc?”

How much longer than the 7″ ? Note that even the 7″ single had multiple versions. The original was released in UK/USA/Canada/Australia. Unsure if this is the one called “worldwide single version” because it was also released as a picture disc. But “A version very similar to this one is available on the album Bananarama – Master Series” which, if I understand correctly, was a UK only mix.

Guillermo

Corrected if I´m wrong but I think this version on that Master Series is the video version.which I was looking after or it could be the 7 inch version from the US 12 inch single.

Tom M

The tracking number for my box says “out for delivery” today. Yes!

Patrick

Just got back from work…NO BOX SET in my mailbox……This sucks!!!!! I made sure my weekend off was totally free……..and NO mail on monday due to holiday…AAAAARRRRRGH!!!!!!

Kiefer2

Does anyone know what version Track #1 is on the “More Than Physical” disc? It is shorter than the album version, but longer than the 7″ single remix. I haven’t been able to find any info on a mix with this time.

Kiefer2

Sorry! I should have scrolled back to the top and there’s no edit feature!

Tom M

You can listen to clips here and they’re decent at two minutes each. Note that a few links play the wrong song, usually “Aie a Mwana” for some reason.

Thanks so much for the link Tom!

Rob

Just got mine yesterday, my neighbors in Brooklyn are going to be hearing a Bananarama marathon this weekend!!

Lieven

Found out that the 7″ version of Strike It Rich is 12 seconds longer on this box than on the original cd-single I have where that version is on.

Gordon

I’m still waiting for my copy to arrive here in Canada, but I was just browsing eBay and noticed someone is selling the discs from the set individually for £4.99 each plus shipping. I guess if someone only wanted certain singles this would be welcomed, but I want the whole bunch.

Patrick

I’m in Canada too and still waiting….how come people from the States got it faster? Canada has the same postal servece as the UK and we usually get our amazon.co.uk items inside of a week…unless people from the US that got it used the priority shipping?

Keeping my fingers crossed that it arrives tomorrow…I’ve done away with all the shopping and chores i had to do,so i could spend my entire weekend off going through the box set…….sucks even more if it doesn’t get here tomorrow cause there’s no mail on monday due to a holiday….then I’m working 12 days in a row with not much time to listen to music :( eveytime i have something coming in the mail that i CAN’T WAIT for….there’s a damn holiday!!!!

Max

I just heard it once for the moment but LT&H (original 12” mix) has a very interesting beggining with all those little sounds you don’t necesseraly pay attention to when you listen to the single. The end is basically the chorus 3 or 4 times and a last drum only chorus.

For A trick of the night (original PWL mix) it’s the demo you hear in the making of the video (from the WOW DVD) with a different drum line on the chorus, the whole song is very interesting to listen to, one of my favourite.

David

@Max : So how is the original 12″ of Love truth and Honesty?? what about “A trick of the night” unreleased mixes?

Max

: I was able to hear More than Physical (instrumental) and Love truth and Honesty (Original 12” Mix and Instrumental)

Max

There is a glitch on Nathan jones CD, on track 14 (12” mix), just after”as I recall” at 1’15. Apparantly everyone has it.
The track is only available on Nathan Jones Maxi CD. It’s not on the reissues or Megarama. It’s not the Twelve Inches of bananarama version either.

Lieven

You’re right, that glitch is there but I could easily fix this one as a few seconds later that part is repeated. Copy & paste.

Kiefer2

This is the same as the “Extended Version” on “Megarama” and the “Mega” version has no glitch.

David Simon

Similar problems with Disc 22 – Love, Truth & Honesty!

Christian Aviles-Scott

Mine arrived in the U.S. today, September 2, from Amazon UK. I must say it was very well packed! Too bad it didn’t come with AutoRip; it will take a couple of days to get into my digital collection.

Simon: I’m only up to CD3, so I can’t comment about 16 yet.

David Simon

Thanks, Christian. I’ll wait to hear from you!

David Simon

My set arrived today and I’m getting it on to iTunes and listening as well.
Has anyone else had any problems with Disc 16 – More Than Physical. I can’t get the last two tracks to play or rip!

Lieven

I have no problem playing or ripping disc 16.

Lieven

Just started listening to the first CD’s. I noticed there’s a lightly alternative intro to the US Dub Version of Shy Boy. This version on the box has no reverb in the intro while the other version has, on one of the recent remasters.

Max

The version of Shy Boy on the box has no reverb : finally we have the version like it was on the 12” vinyl. Don’t know where the version with reverb comes from.

Joe

The bonus tack not listed is on ‘He’s Got Tact’, there are 4 tracks including the ‘Original Version’ which is not listed. It is just under a minute long though.

dave

I’ve had the beauty a few days now. I’m still flailing around, there’s just too much!

There is indeed a mention of the Canadian Set On You in the booklet.

Loving the extended King of the Jungle. There’s a track not mentioned on the published listings, I’ll leave that as a surprise. :)

More Trick of the Nights than you can shake a stick at. Nice early J&S version. Likewise for Do Not Disturb.

Patrick

Come on give us a clue…. on wich cd is there an unlisted track? is it a song or a mix?

If all goes well I’ll have my box before the end of the week…and ALL i’m doing this weekend after doing my chores is listen to all 33 cds in a row!!!!

Waiting Anticipatin

Fricking BRILLIANT box set. I will be spending my whole weekend with it!!! Quick question, why was “Set on You” not included as a proper CD in this box? I have the Canadian 12″ release and would love a CD with remixes! I know it was a limited release but so was “King of the Jungle” right?

Patrick

In Canada we got a set on you 12” and it’s a rarity to other countries..but technically it was just a quick way to make some cash just after Trick of the night dissapeared from the charts….Nothing really special about it….an altered sleeve of Do not disturb….Set on you was just a b-side…ghost as well and a remix of More than physical …just 3 tracks that hadn’t been released in Canada at that time… and i doubt there are unreleased mixes of Set on you floating out there..and any mixes of Ghost or Physical belong on Do not disturb or More than physical….so no need to have a 34th cd in the box….maybe a mention in the booklet though for people who don’t know about that release could have been a nice little touch.

Cool that King of the jungle got it’s on cd….but at least this release had it’s own very unique sleeve and a few mixes…telling us that maybe a 12” was almost released….but damn i can’t wait to hear that extended mix!!!!

Did you listen to a few mixes yet??? :) There are a few i can’t wait to listen to….some mixes and dubs that i haven’t heard in years cause i don’t have a working turntable anymore….both dubs to Love truth and honesty that i have NEVER heard(the only mixes i never found a copy of) and like i said King of the jungle(extended mix) and Do not disturb(alternative 12 mix”)

anybody from the uk taht got the set today..give us some info please!!!! contents….mixes times….unreleased mixes opinions…..

Pretty excited about this release…can’t you tell??? :)

Patrick

Just logged on amazon.co.uk..and my order was shipped today..I’m in Canada and it usually takes from 3 to 5 work days to get stuff from them…..once it took 2 work days to get a package….i hope it gets here nt friday sept 4…that way I’ll have friday night and all weekend to go through all 33 cds..would suck if it wasn’t here by then cause sept 7 is a holiday in Quebec(no mail) and my next weekend off is 2 weeks later…

Would be cool to get the times for the tracks if someone from the UK already has the set…

Sterling

Received notice from Amazon UK that mine is shipping to States today also. Can’t wait!

Dave

Mine is on the way… And I’ve been charged £79.99 + P&P. I’m sure it was more than that when I ordered. £20 more I think.

Rob

I received a shipping notification that mine is on its way to the states.

Tom M

August 28th seems to be the U.K. release date and Sept. 4th looks like the date U.S. retailers and importers will have it available.

Griffin

Today I got a partial refund of €25 through PayPal from jpc de! I just visited their site & learned this box is now €119,99! & the release date is postponed to 25/09/2015! Yes, ka-ching, €25 off.

Big Steve

Now this looks like how you make a boxset that makes fans very happy.

I’m a fan of a sticker and a tacky badge as much as anyone but 33 cd’s with so many mixes on each is a fantastic effort all round.

Surely these 90’s Brit Pop releases can stand back and have a look at how to do it properly.

Shane

Are they for real with the release date? I got an email from amazon pushing the date back once again, to September. Now SDE says it’s coming out this week, and indeed amazon.co.uk shows a release date of August 28th.
I placed my order immediately, and am in no rush to get it, thankfully, because these constant delays really do a trick of fans. Whenever it will come out, it will be great.

Patrick

Don’t know if September 4 is correct, but wowhd is showing that. I just looked there 2 days ago, because the usually have reasonable prices. But not this time, not on this item. I also checked with Edsel and Amazon and both says August 28. I have not recieed any mail about pushing back release date any further than August 28, so I think we can be 99,99 % sure it’s August 28.

Griffin

@Patrick, play com & wowhd used to be my 2 favourite places for CD/DVD/BluRay/games. But since the Japanese took over play com I mainly ordered from wowhd. But since the recent changes there I will check every time I need to order: grooves-inc com or jpc de. I pre-ordered mine from jpc de, when they sent me the Free Shipping offer incl my country, for €144.99 :D

kauwgompie

Absolutely brilliant. The only negative comment would be that the original artwork was much, MUCH better. But who cares, as long as the music is all there. Just like the new Duran album cover is hideous but the new songs are brilliant. Thanks for the site Paul. Can’t tell you that enough!
