Re: Wishlist - Beaucoup fish deluxe boxset
While the peel tracks are technically BF sourced, I want to believe that AHDO will include that show in full, cleaned up and mixed with John's mic in full quality. I dont mind that *we* already have it, even.

Re: Wishlist - Beaucoup fish deluxe boxset
My provisional thoughts are :

CD1 : Beaucoup Fish, remastered
CD2 : Oh, King of Snake (Bungalow), Push Upstairs (The Large Unit), Jumbo (Futureshock Mix), Cups (Vertical Bacon Mix), Cowgirl (Futureshock Mix), King Of Snake (Dino Lenny), Dobropret, Please Help Me, 8 Ball
CD3 : Studio Jams - Oich Oich, Skycraper, Air Towel, Something Like A Nuxx, King of Snake, Thing n A Book 250501, Stagger 010601
CD 4 : London Alexandra Palace 01-01-99

That's what we know exists, and manages to ditch most of the uninteresting third party mixes. I've chosen the KoS Dino Lenny mix as it has different KH vocals.

Re: Wishlist - Beaucoup fish deluxe boxset
i will never understand why all these tracks can't just be put on:

-----------------------
1 dvd (dual layer) 9 gigs
2 bluray audio 25 gigs
------------------------
etiher as audio tracks, or files.

it's been ages for those formats [ok, maybe not the bluray audio],
but bluray discs aren't exactly new.

and if you really want to go retro, a USB stick.

other groups have done this before..

i know about the crazy depeche mode, and u2 super collections on itunes
that were hundreds of dollars. ok, we don't need that yet. (or maybe we do).

it's not that hard. restricting it to cd's is almost as bad as vinyl (and i love vinyl).

you would think they would go back to putting up extras or exclusives as
digital downloads in their store. we know there's a market for that.

WORD. Some awful mixes in the last 7-8 years. The remixes of UW tracks for OWB were a real mixed bag. Some of the mixes for Barking were a disgrace.

Re: Wishlist - Beaucoup fish deluxe boxset
Absolutely agree. I would prefer the reissues gave us just Underworld's work, skipping remixes by other people entirely, from BF onwards including this material would mean either repeating a lot of very similar mixes, or being seriously incomplete. My wishlist is:

CD1 Album Remaster
CD2 Remixes by UW (Kos Bungalow and barking, etc) and studio jams
CD3 Early versions (Xfm?) and unreleased tracks
CD4 Interestingly different live versions of the album tracks (there's a wealth of choice here - long versions of Cups pt 2, fast versions of Bruce Lee, etc.)

As for the point -1 makes, I agree 4CDs didn't give STITI the room it needed with things like Carp Dreams (Koi), the Juanita edit, Dubno felt a bit incomplete without Kiteless and the Cutting Room floor mix in physical form, and both sets would have been miles better with at least 1 complete live gig from that era.

Perhaps the reason we're not getting a lot of live/video content is that it's being stored up for a data-heavy Everything Everything Box? The Live Here Now discs show there's a demand for every live gig they make available, even if unmastered and incorrectly trimmed. Rick could stick 50 DATs on a memory stick and make us very happy!

Re: Wishlist - Beaucoup fish deluxe boxset
Ok... if they don't include "Five Points" in the BF boxset

...I'm done.

(edit)

But what would be nice, is to finally have the "Blue Mountain Jam" in high quality. If I remember correctly... they're all 160 kbps mp3s

Re: Wishlist - Beaucoup fish deluxe boxset
I don't want to hear anything I have heard already.

Why waste space on the Blue Mountain Jam and XFM demos?!

Instead, lets have some of those 200+ demo snippets they have on DAT and find out more about how the album developed.

true.

But seriously though - "Five Points" really has to be on it

It would be nice to hear how "Bruce Lee" developed, I vaguely recall an interview where Karl mentioned that the track started during the STITI era...
