Love the NBML demo. anyone notice it really highlights another GnR 'reference' in the guitar line?

Also loved the comments from Steve Brown. What a journey that must've been from Miami to the Adelphi. That photo does indeed make it look more grim than it actually is, but it's still a dirty, loud place inside. Remains one of my favourite venues.

Well hello, Jimi! Haven't seen you around these parts, or at Adelphi even, for some time.

Hello!!

Funnily enough I was just there on Thursday. And the Sunday two weeks before that. Anyway, how the devil are you doing? Has been too long!

Also, is anyone looking to trade for or sell a Collector edition at all?

My honest opinion. I think the album versions are far superior to the demo versions. A better package would have been the b-sides, including the New Art Riot EP and the Suicide Alley/Tennessee single with a sprinkle of live tracks. The demos just sound like a junior band doing bad cover versions of Manics songs. The most amazing thing is how someone managed to produce something remotely slick from a band whose timing seems all over the place. Interesting how a lot of the demos sound like KYE rejects though. With fear of appearing a miserable sod I found the DVD documentary dull too - too many talking heads and not enough rare footage. Surely they could have used some of the home movie footage in there somewhere. I've not seen No Manifesto but I bet it pisses all over this.

Sadly I guess you're right. Even worse,considering the poor quality of the Italian postal service I just hope it will get here in one piece....

I thought it was of similar quality to No Manifesto (shown just down the road from last nights screening). I liked the talking heads, I'm bored of old footage

Thumbs down To Smiling Girl

We are all WORRIED in Italy.
Always worried.

Indeed from the costs of P&P I already suspected standard mail. Couldn't they afford to give a registered and/or signed mail option?
Really I do not undestrand why MSP official site and Sony store are both so badly operated.

Let's hope the Legacy from Amazon arrives!

Stay beautiful

Question To Aestivate

How can you put in a GT-era package what was not from those days?
I guess this objection goes also for Manifesto's parts which do not pertain to that era.

Cheers

S.

I know.I find absurd there is no possibility to choose a recorded delivery.I would have happily paid a bit more in that case.

I assume the Natwest Barclays Midlands Lloyds video on Drowned in Sound is on the DVD?

Exclamation About the vinyl reissue: request of information

Please: has somebody received the vinyl edition?

If so could he/she tell me if there is any difference with the original one in terms of packaging?
For instance is it coming with a booklet in a size more decent than the Legacy one(s)?

Does it have the picture inner sleeves for the two vinyls like the original?

Thanks

S.
