It was more tongue in cheek Paul H!!!!

I'm hoping that all the club member who want this get it before it runs out so they don't have to be stiffed by Ebay inflated prices...by the odd person who will do the wrong thing.

Plus LUTON is an official release (not a fanclub release) BUT the record company obviously see the value in supporting the fanclub by making this a unique 2 cd set for club members.... we don't press it, own it (the band do) etc. Hopefully that makes sense.

Well the club has once again ran out of the LUTON 2 cd sets.

We will probably do another bulk order in about a month (with 282 remaining) so still fine to send in. I'll hold orders going by the date they arrive and send out the next batch in that order- just in case the final 282 copies go fast.

For those who sent in recently your should get your 2 cd set soon.

Enjoy!

I've been trying to work out how the Rootin Tootin tapes compare to those that have previously been released.

Numerous tracks have cropped up over the years on compilations (band and various artist efforts) as well as, of course, the US Frenzy.

However, the remastering/remixing shenanigans have left me a little confused. I'd attempt a summary of what has appeared and in what form but, truth be told, I'm a relative newbie to the world of Enz and am not convinced I'd do justice to such a task.

Anyone fancy outlining what appears where and how it all relates to Rootin Tootin? For example, Hermit McDermitt appeared on single, on Spellbound (I think) and on Rootin but with different timings... are these different takes or simply different mixes of the same master?

And the three bonus tracks on the remastered Frenzy: are they repeated on Rootin Tootin or were they given a new mix?

Etc.


I just got around to figuring out the difference between the Luton Next Exit and the Hits & Myths versions. Both the same recording but Hits & Myths has an extra verse in it. Just before the "It's nothing new..." verse and comes in at about 2.03.

I think the Luton version may have been slowed down a little too (or the H&M sped up for that matter).
We had a few dozen emails over the past few weeks asking about the LUTOn (2 cd) set. Mostly from new club members.

Sadly all copies have gone. A few stores have the single LUTON cd version.

I have just asked the record company if they could have a look around in their stock room in the hope they may stumble upon a spare copy or ten. I think the chances of finding a whole box of the 2 cd release are very slim as I know how few were done and 99.9% did go out via us.

If they even find a couple we will happily grab the stock. So I'll post back here or send out a FrenzCom Tweet if we manage to turn up any further 2 cd limited edition copies.

I've emailed everyone back so they are aware of the situation. So the 2cd release can now go on the SOLD OUT / RARE list.

Was listening today to the "Hits & Myths" version of "Next Exit" and was startled to hear an extra verse which has been edited out of the Luton Tapes CD. I see it has been mentioned before in a 2012 post by John. What is going on? Why would Eddie or whoever else involved have done this? As far as I can tell, there are no other edits made to the original releases when released on CD - indeed, some of the CD versions are longer. Anyway, this makes the Hits & Myths version a real rarity and something to track down for completists. As for the missing lyrics, good luck trying to decipher them any more than what John has managed.
