No i live in UK . Can't see how the box set would be affected by her passing. I actually quite liked the Queen on reflection, or maybe i've been brainwashed to think that by recents. She was a decent human being really in comparison to the horrifying "leaders" of the world of recent years like T***p, J*****n' etc

Probably a good thing you weren’t gagging for news on a box set of the third Smiths’ album instead, Mr D.

Undoubtedly had a big affect on proceedings. Huge!

In summary, I'm desperate to find out a track list and release date for the set, as I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on it!



Don't get too worked up. Jumping the queue for a box is frowned upon.

I'm just waiting for the tracklisting so I can moan about it. I bought the Movement boxset last month and regretted it soon after, although it is a nice colour.

I'm sure it's old news to the faithful but I only just heard this - John Robie's "One More Shot", which several people claim online was the track New Order reworked with Robie in their rush to put together Shellshock

I guess similar to Arthur Baker and IOU / Confusion

Funnily enough this came up here on the forum within the past year. Reply #45 and below.

Speaking of IOU, does anyone here do Wordle? I always end up singing the chorus to IOU in my head when thinking about vowels...
