wrote in to confirm that the Japanese pressing of 'Let's Change The World With Music' will have one bonus track, and will be released on October 21st. Also, he reports that paper-sleeve/remastered versions of the other albums will be released on the same day, and buying all of them at once will get you a specially designed box to hold them!
It's a mystery why this isn't going on anywhere else, and some older emails have cast suspicion on just how 'remastered' the Japanese versions really are, but they are still worth keeping an eye on. Magnus Sall
translated the bonus track's name as 'truck 1 tune recording schedule' - I'd love to hear your guesses on the significance of that.
A few new articles for you today as well. Stephen Schnee
has written a lengthy review for this music mag's blog
, and Kenneth Walsh
sent this nifty overview
of the Sprouts' career, and his appreciation for them. The press machine is still rolling on! And finally, Lee Redfern
dug up a brilliant article from Q magazine in 1997, filling in some more fascinating pieces of the Sprout story. Your best bet is to right click here
and 'save as,' it's a fairly big file.
