Whatever happened to the days when you bought a cd and that was it? Nowadays if you to go iTunes you get this bonus track, amazon is another, if you order from Japan you get lyrics, pullouts, stickers, and an autographed toy monkey, Tesco paying 3 weeks in advance you get an alternate running order with different artwork, asda and you get a dvd interview, target is a limited edition box with t-shirt and alternate interview cd. 

If I buy the album I want the full thing (interview, stickers, interview). I don't make it a bloody obstacle course where I have to draw up a spreadsheet filled with mathematical equations that compares all the options to work out what I want and where it is cheapest.

God forbid we got Pepper nowadays, you'd spend 4 months getting the artwork together.

I agree 100%.  When the last U2 album came out I bought the 'deluxe' version to get the film 'Linear' and some extra art in the booklet.  My daughter bought the 'standard' edition and got a bonus track - just crazy imho.

Anyone know which edition will have the autographed toy hedgehog?  We had a holiday in the UK a while back and she is now obsessed with the prickly little beasts :)

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I am loving his "New" single, and can't wait to buy the album!  It comes out right before my 30th Birthday!  I probably won't be able to wait and see if someone buys it, I'll be at HMV that day like the Paul addict I am!  a-hard-days-night-paul-7  I bought the single on ITunes but I want the actual CD with the booklet and pictures and all that fun stuff.  I hope it comes out on vinyl too.  heart

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

RANDOM ASIDE: The first thing that came to mind when I heard the album title was, "Huh. He hasn't done such a minimalist title since Ram. I'll take that as a good omen!" Then I saw the cover art, and loved it, and just now I realized that if you flip it on its side, it spells "EWE." Ha!

Good catch! I wonder if he or his designer(s) have noticed that?
