I don't know if everybody on here is subscribed to the Rip It Up group but I've read some interesting bits on there about the box set. It started as a discussion on what was missing from the box set including the Janice Long session that we know about. Mentioned were The Nu-Sonics "I Don't Care" and "Who Are The Mystery Girls?", various 7 inch versions, the 12 inch version of "I Can't Help Myself" and the 2nd dub version of "A Place In My Heart" (from an NME tape apparently).
Here's a quote from RobF -
"OK Kris got back to me very quickly and confirmed that the 2nd Dub version
of Place In My Heart was deliberately left off for space reasons (and the
it's not hugely different to Dub #1)
However he also says that the discs
are full because there will be some
hidden surprises in there (like the
Nu-Sonics stuff on Glasgow School /
Heather's On Fire) and that there will
also be some free downloads of
"cutting room floor" stuff for fans in the run
up to release (and that other
dub mix is one of them)"
He also confirmed via Kris at Domino that 7" edits that were just shortened edits of 12" versions had been deliberately left off.
Can anyone shed any light on the 12 inch version of "I Can't Help Myself" being on the box set. It was on the original 12" so thought it would make it. I've digitized my vinyl copy of it either way!
That quote above has actually made me more excited about this box set and I didn't think that was possible!
Oh, one more thing - how big is the box set going to be? Is it going to be one of those long rectangular ones or a more chunky CD size? Cheers.
