Seems like no vinyl reissue at the end of October. I thought it was remastered alongside His n Hers by Steve Mackey.

Had hoped for the interchangeable sleeve.

I thought they were just being a bit tardy with the announcement but it does feel now like it's not happening. I'm pretty sure I read that His N Hers & DC were remastered my Jarvis & Mackey at Abbey Road. I'm guessing the blame will lie with Universal.

†I have bought a dozen LPs since lockdown. †Probably saved over £1,000 not going out. †Havent been in a pub for 6 months, no football, no gigs, no theatre, no comedy shows. †An LP every fortnight is as good as it gets...

Yes - U2, Ultravox, Mansun, Divine Comedy and even Menswear(!) are all bringing out expensive deluxe sets before Christmas. This is the time to do it. Who knows if there will be much of a market left for high-end physical music retrospectives in ten years time.

Very tempted by Divine Comedy retrospective, but having spent around £250 for the Barbican gigs, another £300 on the CDs and LPs seems too much...

HMV - The Divine Comedy Reissues on vinyl - Buy all 9 for £168.77†

Thankfully no Bowie box this year.

The Divine Comedy is well worth it, it's packed with unreleased material. It's a fan must and will sell no matter what coz people are looking for it. It's almost sold out already.

What i meant about Different Class, is that most "fans" wont bother buying a record with no new tracks, at a rate that would interesting financially for Pulp. That kind of release with no extra stuff is made for casual buyers that browse shops looking for something to buy, but with no target in mind.

The only DC reissue i would buy would be a complete remix, not just a remaster.

ArrGee, i got a refund for the gigs for the Paris gigs, you kept yours ?

Sold out?† †I am waiting until it is released next week and seeing if Amazon sell it with autorip.† Too lazy to rip all the CDs.† The CDs do seem like good value, but invariably I would buy the vinyl as well.††

Maybe, but given I purchased the new His n Hers last year with nothing new,† I suspect I would buy the Different Class reissue.† Especially with the interchangeable covers.† The white His n Hers has sold out.

Barbican didn't offer refunds so I still have tickets for 4 of 5 nights.† Expect to get the other night when people return tickets.† If it happens that is.
