Another XTC mega-deal
Do you remember that crazy US deal for XTC‘s CD+blu-ray reissue of Oranges & Lemons from a few weeks ago? Well now the CD+blu-ray reissue of the 1979 Drums and Wires is available for a the same ridiculously low low price!
This reissue was from 2014 – the one before Oranges and Lemons (which came out in 2015) – but boasts exactly the same mega-generous content, including a the new Steven Wilson stereo mix on CD and the Steven Wilson 5.1 surround sound mix (and stereo mix) on the blu-ray (region free, NTSC). In fact, this set has 117 tracks!
- New stereo mix = 12 tracks
- Original stereo mix = 12 tracks
- Instrumental mixes = 12 tracks
- 5.1 mix = 12 tracks
- Bonus tracks new stereo mixes = 11 tracks
- Bonus tracks 5.1 = 11 tracks
- Demo session 1 = 6 tracks
- Demo session 2 = 4 tracks
- Demo session 3 = 4 tracks
- Demo session 4 = 4 tracks
- Rehearsal tape = 20 tracks
- DJM re-recordings = 3 tracks
- Various original alternate mixes = 4 tracks
- Promo videos = 2 track
ALL the above for a price of $12.92. That’s less than £10! Almost absurd.
