LMAO. I love when you get going, MMM. To be honest, though, it wasn't that simple (at least not in the 80s when I started collecting). There were always a zillion 12"s just counting US and UK and then Japan was a whole other thing. And a lot of those b-sides never get put on CD so all you have is the vinyl. At least now I can count on an mp3 floating around somewhere if I can't buy it…

Haha, I really love your rants, mmm :)
'Tis true, though. I think I'll just wait until it's out and then get what seems the most straight-forward. I can't be bothered with the headache.

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 :)

I remember several years back when Beck released Guero and someone asked him why in Japan they get more songs and artwork and the like rather than customers in the States. He replied "You'd have to ask UMG. It's not my call." So I don't think the artist has a whole lot of (if any) say in how their music gets packaged, even an artist as legendary as Paul McCartney. (Though you'd think he would have some say there…)

I'd like it to be released as vinyl. Even though it's go its faults care/damage wise there's something ever so nostalgic about playing a record. Mumford & Sons released it on vinyl, why not Macca?

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

I think it probably will be released on vinyl, if 'Kisses' is anything to go by, anyway, because that was. That album "suited" vinyl more, I think, because of the Jazz-y, classic feel it has.

Yep, it definitely did come out. I almost bought it but never did because I wasn't yet into that kind of music. Now I really wish I had. blue-meanie
Edit: I've just realised something, I could still buy it! That was so, well, "blonde" of me. God, I'm tired. First if all I'm gonna go over to Amazon and buy the damn thing!

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

Amazon.com sales ranks: the deluxe edition cd is at # 30, vinyl at #151, and regular cd is #401. The deluxe edition was at 25 when I ordered it yesterday. Has anyone seen it higher than that?

Nice.

Any idea what the deluxe will add?  I checked Amazon and couldn't spot it – but then I am very good at missing stuff sitting right in front of my nose :)

 No, actually I don't know. Hopefully something. Perhaps I was too  hasty in choosing?  I don't think I will get the autographed hedgehog as mentioned earlier. Oh well. I'll enjoy it.

I've read just this morning that the deluxe will have 2 extra tracks that were recorded at the sessions. Can't wait!

Will there be a deluxe cd with the bonus tracks?

 If not just release those 2 as a single or something like hidden tracks on the hardcopies instead of making people miss out if they don't want to download? Unless in 3 months time we will get a deluxe edition cd with bonus tracks which seems to be common nowadays (and means some folks have to buy the same cd twice). Its these type of things that push people into downloading from torrent sites or ripping/copying someone else's.

Well, I'll probably do the same thing I did with Kisses. I'll buy the vinyl edition and download the bonus tracks from a torrent site.

As far as I know the deluxe edition is on CD, too…it's on Amazon.com

Great – thanks for the update.

I'm very excited about this – it will be the first new CD for me since I started 'getting back' into collecting Beatles CDs.

The same thing happened when I began buying Neil Young CDs again; two new ones, a great book, a world tour (so I got to see him and Crazy Horse in Sydney).  I have seen Paul years ago but would love to see him tour down here again.

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?
