Alright.... about the survivor thing.... those threads tend to take quite a while too.... so just a poll for favourites from each LP could work better.

anyone bought this? how much did it set you back? by 'remastering' it barely five years after it was last remastered are there any major changes? are the vanilla tapes any good?is the documentary interesting? is this worth it? do i ask too many questions?

i don't see any differences between my old london calling cd and this new one (other than the fact that 'revolution rock' doesn't skip, but the fact that it skips on my old copy is my own fault).

the vanilla tapes are cool in that 'official bootleg' sort of sense...not stellar quality or anything (not as bad as the bootleg i downloaded from you of the ny palladium show where the cover art took place, but not crystal clear digital mastery), but if you like stuff like that, i don't think you'd be disappointed.

the documentary is like an extension of the parts of 'westway to the world' where they're talking about the album, some of the interviews from WttW have been recycled into this one, and the other ones i'm assuming were leftover footage...and you get to see that guy stevens really was the nut they said he was. throwing chairs and smashing things...jumping up and down, screaming at the band...

i'd say something about the liner notes, but i haven't really looked through the whole thing. it's not the 'clash on broadway' book, but it seemed cool. i should take another look at that, actually...

the whole thing only cost me about 20 bucks (20.99 to be exact). so it was definetly worth it. anything over 35, though, and i might have had to think it over again (although being me, i probably would have blown the cash anyway at that point )

no, dear yertle, you do not ask too many questions
