Yes - good point - would have to get a shipment notice pretty soon though and I've had nothing yet

Should get a reasonable rebate on the pre-order price guarantee -It was £109.99 when I ordered it, and is currently £94.59

According to the data the lowest the price has dipped in between times is £89.22 - so that's the price all the pre-orders will pay when it ships

Just a heads up, Denial has crept into the Hurrah's tracklisting by mistake on the sleeve artwork. No idea how this happened. Obviously it wasn't even written in Sept 1980 so is not actually there.

Cheers for the heads up about this.

Bit annoying. I noticed this error in the press release back in December (and I mentioned it earlier in this thread).
I’m guessing that the same data that went to the press release sadly also went to the printers.

A minor annoyance though. Hopefully that’s the only issue with this set. After the 2007 Rhino reissues, I always get worried about these things.

I was that exited when this release was announced I ordered direct from the New Order site immediately at very high cost compared to amazon.

The upside of that is that I have been notified it is out for delivery.

For the money I paid it should be delivered by Bernard, Steve and Gillian! Looking forward to p,aging it all, I’ll dedicate a whole night to Movement. Purposely not played anything from the movement era dive this was announced so it will all sound real,y fresh

Amazon also notified me it has shipped and will arrive Thursday.

Of course where I live, by the time it's delivered, it will likely already be Friday for most of you.

Still no shipment notice here in the UK from Amazon - grrr

One thing I noticed on the 6 music play of the Ceremony Western Works demo was that it didn't sound greatly different to the circulating bootleg version. I always assumed the horrible phasing on the hi-hat was wow on the bootleg transfer, but it's still there so maybe it was deliberate? Glad they ditched that idea if so!

First impressions- a lot of care and attention gone into this. A beautiful thing. Helpful touch with the white ribbon to ease getting the stuff out of the box.Oh, they’ve included the original see through plastic sleeve AND a new white card sleeve for the inner of the vinyl.

Book is fantastic.

First thing I played was the alternative 1982 7” mix of Tempation, yes some differences to the released 7”.

Oh and Colin Torr (Biginoil from these forums once upon a time, maybe he still does post but under a different username?) gets a credit!

Wonderful wonderful release. At last new order back catalogue gets the respect it deserves. Very high quality.

Going to watch some of the DVD in a bit can’t wait! Book is brilliant had a feel of the superb book by dec Hickey about it and when I get to the end some he is credited with a court leg of photos. Other known fans have contributed as well. Well though out concept, a great purchase for us NO obsessives. It’s took some doing but they’ve got it right at last.

Looking at my original 12” and the new ones all the covers have slight differences (apart fromEGG which is major) which I think is deliberate to mark them as different to the originals, all seem different lightness or darknesss in the colours unless my originals are just faded with age, but temptation new 12 is more faded than my original.

Just watching hurrahs, excellent quality footage considering the age.

Absolutely fascinating. Bernard sings in a lonely place, Stephen then sings procession then Hooky the next 2 (DNE and mesh) that’s as far as I hav3 got up to now. Never realised Steve ever sang procession or Hooky mesh

Edited by user 04 April 2019 13:54:26(UTC)  | Reason: Chosen time! I meant mesh

So far I’ve watched the Hurrah, Peppermint Lounge and Riverside stuff. Bernard dances during Hurt at Peppermint Lounge,or kind of dances. Didn’t realise he danced in those days. Some great versions of Temptation and EGG in there.Found i enjoyed the Riverside thing the best. I think I’d only ever seen Temptation and Chosen time from that so to see stuff like Procession and In A Lonely Place on that was really good.

Grrr - Amazon still not shipped for me.
It's meant to be delivered tomorrow but Amazon are saying 'before 11pm'. It better arrive wayyyy before then!!

There seems to be a few people having received their box from Amazon.co.uk today. I thought the release date was tomorrow (5th). If it is, it's very strange for Amazon to deliver a day early.
Never known them to deliver early.



PS Kind of serendipity that I 'ranked up' on the forum to 'Member Of The Movement' in the week that the box set was released.

I'm in the same boat. I'm envious of everybody that has their hands on it already!

I'm working in the morning, so knowing my luck, I'll miss the Prime delivery man and have to wait till Saturday!

By the way, I also live in Shropshire. Small world!

It’s a nice corner of the world. Have been here all my life.

My box set has now been dispatched. My wife has offered to stay in for most of the day, but will need to pop out to take my son to school and pick him up. What’s the betting Amazon try to deliver during the half hour she’s missing?

I was lucky enough to receive my pre-order from the NO store yesterday. I bought the surrounding 12" reissues the old school way by actually going to a record shop and getting them each Friday they arrived. The box itself is great; it really feels like a quality item and not only that but the sound quality on the CDs is top notch. CD-TEXT tells us this is the 2015 remaster of Movement itself (by Frank Arkwright, I believe).

The DVD is a revelation. It is so easy to balls stuff like this up but the content being semi-mythical almost guaranteed a great review. I have just exported the audio to FLAC and the sounds is really full on through headphones. Brilliant. I flicked through the book and again, a quality item sporting some wonderful photos of the era.

My sole bit of tiny feedback would be that - for £120 - a third CD mirroring the Collector's Edition disc 2 content but similarly remastered would truly have made this the "Definitive Edition". The reissue 12" singles not having the remastered audio in digital was also a slight let down (being 2019 and all). However, I'm assuming it is being kept to one side for an eventual Substance 1987 box (fingers crossed).

When building my MP3 digital copy of this Movement set I simply copied in the 'fixed' Collector's Edition CD2 content in as as 'Disc 2' and shifted the Demos to 'Disc 3' with the DVD audio content completing 'Disc 4'.

At 72 tracks (!) on my phone under the Movement (Definitive Edition) heading it is a proper treasure trove to listen to.

More of this for the other albums, please I.e. take our money etc....

I’m still at work with the box waiting for me at home.

Just put some of the demos on Apple Music though.

Wow!
Mesh with Hooky on vocals, like those early live performances. Plus all different lyrics (again resembling the live performances).

Cries and Whispers with new lyrics.

Colour me so bloody excited...

Roll on 4 o’clock when I can get out of here and home.

For those who either don't want or can't receive the box-set in their territory. A purchasable digital version is available through most usual sites:

https://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/albu...-new-order/l4xo3cn3thcgc
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/albu...2019-remaster/1458124979

It only includes Movement and the Demos CD though. No DVD content.

Mine arrived earlier from Amazon - it really is beautiful. I hadn't expected the box to be in the same "hessian" style as the old FAC cassettes - it would have been a nice touch to have copied the font and style for the front, but I guess that the plan is to start a new series in t's own design. I wonder what colour the PCL box will be?

Only got as far as the extras CD so far. Western Works demos sound a bit bright and in your face compared to the bootleg versions.

That first mix of Ceremony is bizarre to here - much less of the reverb, and I was really getting into it - then they fade it out. I think they made the right choice to lose the fade on subsequent versions as the ending is one of the best bits!

Oh and there is the obligatory minor artwork mistake of course - the spine of the vinyl LP has the catalog number FACD 50 - d'oh!

I hadn't noticed the FACD thing at first glance, but then noticed that someone had mentioned it on Facebook.
Again, a very minor quibble.

The set is truly a thing of beauty. Even at £120 RRP, I still think it's worth it (I pre-ordered through Amazon, so got it for £89).
I too was pleasantly surprised by the linen feel of the box. It really does hark back to those FAC cassettes! Lovely stuff!

The book is fantastic. Can't wait to read it. I love how they've taken photos of all the band's equipment used. I hope they continue to do this in the other box sets. Nice to see Barney's old 'seconds' 335. It looks like he still has it. (Man, I'd kill to own that piece of equipment! To me, that's how I always picture Barney - playing that guitar).

About to play the DVD. Should be good.

Ordered mine from Amazon (£89) and received it yesterday ( Thursday).

Crikey, Barney is kind of possessed in the Granada thing .

Just finished listening to the extras CD. Really enjoyed the Cargo sessions stuff.

So much to consume and comment on.

Watching the DVD at the moment.
The Peppermint Lounge gig is F***ING superb!!
Everything's Gone Green, Hurt and Temptation (the latter two in early versions).

It's so good, I'm surprised it's never been seen before.

More thoughts later, inevitably...
