Shipping charges from the UK to the US went through the roof back in July, with another increase this month. The Royal Mail are blaming it on increased costs at the US end.

I'm running the pledge campaign for the new Lifesigns album, and having to placate our American fans. Sadly there's not much we can do to avoid it, and if they spring another increase on us before the album release, we'll be out of pocket.

Well, hello, everyone – it has been a while. For those who I don't chat to occasionally in The Other Place, I hope you're all well and safe at this mad time.

13 Winters duly ordered & very much looking forward to the new material next year. Regular chats with Mr Mitchell lead me to conclude that it'll be a corker.

My copy arrived in the afternoon and whilst I haven’t had a chance to play any CD yet (ooh, dilemma - which of the 8 do I choose first?!) I have to say it is a thing of fantastic beauty. :) Good old Vitamin P has done an outstanding job. Essential purchase for any Frost* fan. 8)

Had a listen to the remixed EIMA and I think I prefer it to the original. It seems less compressed and all of the instruments appear to have more room to breathe. Andy’s drums definitely sound clearer and are possibly more prominent in the mix. I like what Jem has done with Secret Song. It sounds more ‘meant’ as part of the album. Still too long a fade though! 8)

Got our copy in the LF/Philadelphia household yesterday!

So far listened to EIMA remix (about which I think I concur with DS, it’s a bit less compressed sounding, though it is still pretty brutal on the ears thanks to the constant cymbal and snare-attack!) and now we’re onto “Falling Satellive” (aka “the only Frost* gig we ended up not turning up to on the day...!)

Book is a thing of wonder. Looking forward to listening to the rest of it, though I can’t help but notice that nearly 4 entire CDs are made up of variations on the same material from the one album.

I’ve not listened to the demos yet but I could think of quite a few other “oddity tracks” I’d have expected to see on that last CD instead (1976, anyone?)

Errrrm, anyone noticed that “Nice Day For It” has lost all its vocals on the main album? (Listening on Spotify right now as I haven’t ripped the CD yet)

Not sure if this was a mistake (accidentally included the instrumental version?) or deliberate...?

If it was deliberate, that’s a real shame - the reprise of the “there is never a survivor from the final kiss” bit really ties it back to the album opening and packs a real emotional punch...
Title: Re: 13 Winters
Post by: LivingForever on November 22, 2020, 11:27:32 PM
The CD is also the same - no “you know who you aaaaaare” or the “First Day” vocal reprise.

Surely not intentional?

I checked the instrumentals disc just in case they got swapped somehow but that’s also instrumental.
Title: Re: 13 Winters
Post by: D S on November 23, 2020, 06:47:01 AM
Another interesting change is in the running order of Milliontown - BLM & The Other Me have swapped places... ???
Title: Re: 13 Winters
Post by: LivingForever on November 23, 2020, 08:10:01 AM
I can live with that one! It actually makes more sense to me, I don’t know why they originally put the two massive epics back to back.

The missing vocals on “Nice Day”, though... can’t be intentional. Surely? Bad decision if so...

I know there are other bits and bobs that have been tinkered with, but this just seems like an accident.

I don’t know how to contact Jem these days to ask!

Mine arrived yesterday too, with today being the 3rd anniversary of going to London for the Dingwalls gig so that's today listening!!!!
It's a beautiful set, with all of the lovely artwork by Vitamin P looking stunning - I'd love to see prints of some of this available at sometime (I do have the calendar from a few years ago which kind of does this with some of the art).

Been slowly working my way through the CDs in the last few days.

Pretty much of a similar mind on most of the things that have been said so far:

EIMA mix is really good, sounds a lot more natural and gives everything a bit of space. Love that 'The Secret Song' is a separate track now.
At first was a bit confused about 'BLM' & 'The Other Me' being swapped around but once again it gives the listener time to catch their breath.
Shame about 'Nice Day For It...' Think I'll slip the 2016 version onto my iPod in its place for the time being.

Has anyone else's book got a misprint?
In the lyric sheet for 'Welcome To Nowhere' the lyrics for 'Experiments In Mass Appeal' has been printed again.  :o

I fear that all 3,000 have been printed like that.  Big Big Train have got a "Passenger" who meticulously proof reads their sleeve notes and programmes before they get printed.  But then they don't have a label behind them to help with that.
