Anthem 50th

That's what I'm waiting for ! My all-time favourite album, in it's original mix. Remember the first time I heard it .... every note and sound is burned in my memory.

Hoping that's true. And hope they choose one of the Quick 'n Dead Pacific Northwest shows with prominent Pig organ...and Clementine.

Would definitely be cool if they included the Cross-Eyed LP remix ~ even as a hidden track, like the single mix on the previous remaster.

Has anyone played these reissue GD singles, and can comment on the quality? My Hendrix collector's Valleys of Neptune 45 skipped all over the place on first listen :(

50th

I expect a re-release of anthem next year, with the re-mix version tacked on, as well as a live show from the era... Actually can't wait to buy that

Cross-Eyed

Never can decide if I prefer the single mix of Born Cross-Eyed, with the live feedback outro...or the Anthem vinyl remix with the big chord at the end.

I know Phil gushes over the original Anthem mix ~ a "work of art," "mixed for the hallucinations" and reinstated for all cd releases ~ but this song, at least, suffers for the hallucinations.

Ooo...how about a 5.1 mix?

Nothing Wrong With This Offering

They are celebrating important anniversaries of key albums and singles.. Some of these albums are of historical significance..

What do you expect from a record company.. to do nothing? Of course not...

Besides.. I feel no pressure to buy these. They are just studio singles, which I really never listen to unless they are on the radio. Still.. I think it's interesting if this is your thing. They hired artists and are creating a bit of hoopla on the anniversary dates. So if you like Anthem of the Sun a lot then cool.. you can get the single of Born Cross Eyed. Lasts longer than flowers and costs less too. Nothing wrong with this and nothing wrong with punting on it either.

Better to do then to do nothing.

I find this Dark Star much easier to handle than the one they did that afternoon at the Creamery.
Nah, forget that- I'll take the one from the Creamery any day.
Now, Gary, chill out- first, you're just wrong- not everything from Dead.net is limited edition, and a lot of what is sells slowly, so it's hardly a big deal. Second, a lot of the limited edition focus is due to the challenges of selling this kind of stuff in today's consumer environment. Third, one person's crap is another's treasure, or at least collectible- and if you're on this site and on these particular item pages, you either have an interest in at least some of this 'crap' or you're just here to troll. Finally, if you want to make a bigger point about the ills of consumer culture, you kinda blew it with your blunt, wide-net dismissal of it- you might have come off as just a wee bit curmudgeonly...

Collectible crap

Everything you attempt to sell us is self-proclaimed, highly collectible crap because you make a limited number of copies and give each piece it's own number. Beyond that, what is really "highly collectible" about owning more and more worthless crap?
