Agreed. Not sure there is enough new here for £60 though!

I'm waiting for the price drop. Amazon had the forthcoming Jam 77 re-issue up for £59 for few days till Record Store knocked £20 off

Trouble with this one might be that it is described as an Amazon exclusive.

Another great album with too many reissues. The only stuff on there I don't already own is the Paris Theater gig. So hardly worth the asking price for that.

Had to many re-issues .. I Just bought the orange vinyl edition that sainsburys were doing a few months ago so i'm happy with that edition

Still a great album though
Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don't have any surface noise. I said, "Listen, mate, "life" has surface noise."

Very nice but I can't justify the price tag to buy it.

Has Phil Jupitus got a full time job writing sleeve notes and book intros?

And The Specials and Madness and every band I have read a book about or bought a reissue box set lately 😉

So he's got good taste. You can't fault that. He loved The Members also.

My weekend reading just arrived from the Book Depository (excellent service) and I was surprised to see only 50% of the books had a foreword by Phil Jupitus!
