My little White Limo arrived yesterday... and sorry boys, but if you're only packing four inches, you're not carrying much heat!

That thing is fucking tiny... but still awesome.

I also had a copy of the I'll Stick Around 12" turn up yesterday after being sent from the UK in mid-July. I've already got the refund and everything for it...

Very nice pics !

Yes I am well aware that there are two versions of the release. That's one reason I said "almost" complete, because I don't have either.

What you've posted is the Dutch 2-track CD version. What I've bought is the first Spanish CD version as here on Discogs:

http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=2064865

What happened as far as anyone can tell is there was a Spanish Promo release of just 300. That was for the record stations only and has the "40 CADENA PRINCIPALES" logo printed on the front cover (denoting the radio station circuit as I understand it).

Then it was re-released in Spain to a much wider audience using the same promo fold out cover that had the cover art re-printed because it was no long-ever-er (ehehe) a one track CD as they didn't see the need to actually repress the CD because they were able to simply import under agreement a bunch of the Dutch 2-track discs that had already been pressed for the commercial French 2 Track Card Single (that was also pressed in Holland). So actually the Dutch CD version is a promo/non promo (cover sleeve/disc).

I have the French card single and it looks exactly like the one you can see in your photos, while the Spanish one in the link above is very different (and at least 10x rarer).

So there are French and Spanish CD Singles with the exact same actual CD inside that was made in Holland, and no actual release in Holland that had that CD at all

And on your last point yes I still need that Dutch CD version - or at least when you wrote that I did - but I've just bought that too for 8 pounds

And so yes I'm a total smart ass - but my Big Me collection will still be "almost" complete. Because after all of that shit with all the versions in all the countries, I still wont have one item - the 4 track cassette single made in my own fucking country

Sucks to be a collector that looked at brand new cassette singles in front of him on a shelf in a record store 16 years ago and said "Fuck Off I'm not paying $2.99 for a cassette with only four damn tracks on it..."

Just found these on amazon(dot)com!!! Looks like they're reissuing the whole back catalogue, and finally pressing "Skin & Bones"

VERY tasty, but the bank manager won't be happy with me!

Just when you think you're there, they come up with the re-issues. Anyway I'm glad I got all the original vinyls when they were released. Skin and bones is a definate buy by the way.

Hope it's true. Cause the other day when I looked at my vinyl collection of Foo on vinyl I really wished that those albums were available at reasonable not eBay-and-other-sites-inflated prices...

It's down right at the moment but:

http://musictap.net/2011/09/30/tapsheet-09302011/

Confirms the re-release saying:

"RCA Records and Legacy Recordings will re-release the some of the Foo Fighters catalog on vinyl LP on November 21. These include Foo Fighters (1995), In Your Honor (2005), One By One (2002), The Colour and The Shape (1997), Skin & Bones (2006 Live), and There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999)."

The good things are:

1) People can now hear these records the way they should be heard so long as the pressings are good quality at a reasonable price. Since the WL release was great quality, I'm hopeful these will be too.

2) The price for originals will fall - those that just want the records will now be able to forget the originals unless they start full collecting. So collectors should pay a little less and that's cool.

3) The pirates are well fucked - and that makes me happiest of all

The bad is minor really,

You will just have to be ultra sure you are buying the first pressings of the first and TCATS vinyl if that's what you are after. The rest are unique because they either don't exist (Skin & Bones) or were first pressed as single records and not as all the rest of these are as double vinyl. Why the first is still a single records kinda puzzles me though.

EU vinyl is up for pre-order on Amazon Germany - so it looks like there will be two versions. For those wanting both hold out for Amazon UK, the German pricing is utterly stupid on these.

Final thought: 21st November release... WFT why not the 11th
Hasn't anybody heard of one by one by one by one by one by one.

Now THAT woulda been cool (Call me boys! - plenty more marketing advice where that came from )
