Me too. Reckon must be different suppliers. Nice they've used gold pens to sign the print.

From Despair to Where demo has a lovely mid section

Distinct lack of rough and ready demos. Guess the cassettes never survived or not considered worthy enough...

Another Sony fuck up.
I got two inserts! One unsigned inside the polythene-d book, one separate and signed that I only just noticed in the packaging as I was about to recycle it!

Haven't played it yet but I love the book. I'm glad they didn't sign the cover, would've ruined it. They could have signed the inside but the book's quite stiff so easier to just sign an insert? At least i can frame it. Also have an unsigned one.

Were t-shirts an option? T-shirts would've been a better idea than a sweatshirt for a June release? Can't remember what i ordered

I'll play it later. Supposed to be working

The book's quite nice. Not listened to the CDs yet but so far a little disappointed in the vinyl - bit hissy and doesn't necessarily sound like 'a remaster' in the way the other records have. Just glad to have it on vinyl full stop though really, so no complaints.

The book is really lovely, this is really another Mitch Ikeda release disguised as an album reissue.

No video but Facebook pictures of me trying to open the thing. Looking through the book.
Favourite picture is James leaving his then home to go on tour.
Not listened yet. But managed to peel off the white contents label, pin a corner of it on one of my poetry notebooks, then was able to post it in the right corner of the back page.
Never ever done stuff like that before. Certainly wasn't able to with the Truth book.
Now bring on the KYE remaster!
I wanted it for Patrick Bateman. My CD is a copy of a copy of a lossless etc copy.
If that's got the Iggy Remixed Raw Power (One of my favourite CDs to be honest!) then looking forward to it.

I was looking forward to this book CD thing before lockdown.
Doesn't it seem like yesterday when it was announced?

The extra chords in Roses in the Hospital stick out like a sore thumb

These Roses dance remixes are a bit funky

This remaster really is trash on headphones. I could only listen to a few seconds before my ears started to protest.

Shame. Hopefully they’ll take the criticism onboard and not ruin KYE next year.

Did your vinyl arrive via the normal post?

I don’t see how they could make the production on KYE any worse, to be fair.
