This thread is so great!!!

I didn't realize Renee Simonsen had been in an ad recently. Isn't John now married to one of the women behind Juicy Couture?

I had always wondered what had happened to Clare Stansfield. Apparently she was a movie actress for a while and now designs T-shirts with a business partner.

Oh, all these (careless?) memories...

Nor did I. Thats why it freaked me out at the chemist. Yasmin Le Bon did some full window ads for a local store her about 2 years ago. That was odd. Huge, bigger than life size photos in the window of a clothing store.

Clare Stansfield was in one episode of crappy cop tv show. I can't recall which. I even watched it to see her but she was over and gone in the blink of an eye. Dunno what else.

i have quite a bit of what you have. ahh the wonders of ebay

at least i have a record collection though so i can listen to it

this makes me think mayhaps tomorrow or something i should take a picture of everything i've got on vinyl?

my prized duran duran possession: my moon and stars version of planet earth. it's super-rare, their first american release back in 81, and something like 5000 copies were pressed. it's referred to as the moon and stars version as it had a different cover:


i could not believe when i finally won that on ebay. plus i've got all three versions of carnival: each with a different cover and track listing.

Oh, I've never seen that before. I just have the normal purple one. I didnt know about different covers back then. I knew about different countries having different remixes, hence my Japanese remixes. I have some more though. Dunno where they arel

My Wild Boys cover is the Roger one. I knew there were different covers for that single but I just grabbed Roger, cause that was all that was in the shop .

Ebay? Ive never bought an Duran stuff second hand. Hmmm. Maybe I should. lol.

Actually what I need to buy is a record player, and a computer monitor.

yeah that one was a promo release only in america; i've got the proper purple cover as well. the moon and stars one just has the night version and album version of planet earth, no late bar. late bar.

i think the wild boys version i have is of the entire band. i would love to get my hands on a copy with john on the cover.

ebay is the only way i've ever been able to find any duran duran stuff. the second hand shops here always have loads of U2 stuff which i pick up from time to time, but never any duran duran.

i dunno about in australia, but record players are pretty cheap over here, between $50-100 (us).

Thats just my vinyl. lol. I eventually switched to CDs even though they sound crap and the artwork is too small.

We dont have any 2nd hand cd shops here. We used to have a pawn shop but its moved away. I would have to go into town to find 2nd hand cds. I live up the coast quite a way from the actual inner city of Perth. I suppose I could go down there. lol.

Okay, I was tempted. I walked passed the discount bins at Sanity (CD & DVD chain store over here). You know the sort of sale - huge signs, big discounts but all the CDs are best of Doris Day # 6 etc. I tend to keep walking but I could see a Roxy Music CD (one that I already have) in there so I thought, maybe just maybe there might be something decent in there.

And....

Yep....

You guessed.

Astronaut!!!1!

Not the one with the DVD, just the normal one but the price was right. Not only that but Marianne Faithfuls "Broken English" and "The Essential Philip Glass"

And in the really supercheap bin was the best of Don McLean. Ive always wanted American Pie and the price was right. So now I have it.

:woohoo:

how did I miss a Duran Duran appreciation thread?

I got into DD about two or three years ago... but I've always liked their music since I was a kid

I'm not a hardcore fan in terms of my purchases... I only have Rio and the Wedding Album on CD, and I received both Singles box sets last Christmas. The rest of my Duran collection is on mp3.

My little sister's only seven and she's already a Duranie

:applause: what do you think of the singles box sets? the first one (81-85) is loads better. like U2, once the 90s hit, duran duran started using more remixes than traditional b-sides (meaning covers and songs that didn't make it onto the album).

you should really pick up the remastered duran duran (first album) and seven and the ragged tiger.
