But it's listed beside the cover of your songbook.doc. I have the Demon Fiend CD 144 from 1989. We used to play the song with our band The Boom Goes Bang! from 1993-1997, it's really great fun to sing this song, and it's a simple one to play, it's up to the buskers ...
Strange. I have the Demon Fiend 144 LP fron 1989 and just pasted the track listing from Edwyn's wikipedia discography entry, then put the album on and went through track by track without looking at the track listings again. I haven't done the chords for 'Coffee Table Song' yet either. They're kind of spacious and I was having difficulty deciding whether some note was in or not, taking ages and procrastinating so I though't I'd leave it and go back later.
So there was an extra track on the CD?
Yes, I have the LP too. Today some LPs have some extra tracks (it's a wonderful world).
If Ever You're ready was also the b-side to 50 Shades of Blue (same version as on the album I think), the Don't Shilly Shally (also on the 7") version from 1987 was some kind of a demo. Or maybe I just don't like the Robin Guthrie production ... can Edwyn do a new version of Don't Shilly Shally as an extra track on his new album please? It's one of his best songs. Ever.
Sounds like you've got a fine collection going there Martin. I have the records up to and including 'Hellbent' on vinyl and the subsequent ones on CD. I have a couple of 12" singles too; 'Lean Period' comes in a brown paper bag! Cool. I got my copy of 'The Orange Juice' from John The Con's (properly known as The Other Record Shop) in Hartlepool where I'm from. It has PROMOTIONAL COPY NOT FOR RESALE embossed in gold lettering on the back.
He charged me £4.
When I got it home and played it I found that it sounds like it has had some extreme hiss added to every track. It's amazing what you'll put up with when you've no other option. I've come to love that hiss now.
I know what you mean about 'Don't Shilly Shally'. Don't knock it now, space rockit now...
I think I've everything officially released from Edwyn and Orange Juice. And some special things like the Don't Shilly Shally 12" test pressing for Creation (CRE 047T).
From Lean Period I have both versions on 7"; when I was at the time of it's release in England I only found the paper bag version. Does anybody know how many singles were pressed with and without the paper bag?
And Gary, could you please add Bury My Head In My Hands (b-side of Lean Period) to the Orange Juice songbook, it's a great song - it's good it is on the remastered CD version.
I will but I think I must have left the record in a box at my parents' house and that's 300 miles away! Any way you could get the track to me or upload it to the website? (don't know whether I'm encouraging you to break the law there? but it would be in a good cause.)
Are you a guitar player? How about collaborating on getting all of the singles added to the songbook? I downloaded 'The Glasgow School' and that's got a lot of early stuff on it but I'm not sure what else was recorded.
I'm a guitar player but not really a good one, I learned it by myself and I have a book with pictures of a lot of chords (most of them I can't play), but I will help anyway to add some songs. Just tell which ones I should try ...

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...
A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue
Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.
I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
Does anyone know anything about this mythical film that Edwyn was working on in the mid 80's with Alan Horne and Paul Quinn? Paul Blue Eyes and Ain't That Always The Way were credited as being from…Continue
Does anyone know the provenance of the song “It Had To Happen” that Edwyn & Paul Quinn did on the Richard Skinner BBC radio show in 1985?It sounds to me like quintessential Collins, but as far as…Continue
