^ Ooh I’ve never heard of or seen that flexi for the 87 US tour. Great find. That’s a rare one that. 3 tracks on one side of a 7” flexi though? Dread to think what the sound quality is like. Still, a great rare one to own I should think.

According to Discogs it's a 9" flexi - never seen one of those before, but if it really has the Substance CD version of Shame of the Nation on it - then that's nearly 8 minutes on it's own!

The Bunnymen track is 4 minutes and I don't know the GLJ song at all, but even if it's 3 minutes, that's still 15 minutes of music on a 9" flexi..ouch

I read about it in the Record Mirror double article. The sound quality Is irrelevant as you wouldn't wanna play anyway cos you'd ruin it and you'd have the actual material in high quality on the 'proper' issue anyway.

I believe it was the 7" edit. Although I might be confusing it with the 3X12" promo of the bands for the same tour. That came in a sleeve fitting all 3 that I would also store my flexi inside. Got rid of my vinyl ages ago so can't confirm.

Five years later, I'm still surprised with Music Complete... after the original bassist departure and Never Cry Another Tear (Sumner's weakest effort by far IMHO) I was expecting catastrophe. But it still sounds really fresh, and Academic is up there with the classics.... well, almost.

I could easily trade Superheated for Be a Rebel, mind you.

Had both back in the day and owner of the record store I worked at said Label Rep told him the blue version was rarer. Never saw any evidence to back this up.

I do recall that although the puffy version was given it's own product number unique to that of the standard U.S. release. But if you look at the manufacturer numbers engraved on the disc, it has the standard product number and the top of the disc is just painted over a standard one.

Probably referring to this one. Always wondered about it myself as I've never seen one for sale despite years of looking.

Just a hunch, but it's very hard to take an accurate photo of fluorescent orange, and it wouldn't make sense to emulate the orange inflatable ring on the cover by creating a yellow puffy sleeve. I think it's either a photo that hasn't been color-corrected, or it's sun damage, but not actually yellow.

huh? those are totally different colors. there's no way orange would show up as yellow.

funny thing, i ordered the blue ink republic, and the guy sent me pictures, and they
showed up as silver, but he insisted they were blue.

sure enough, when it showed up, it was blue.

It looks like the label on the yellow version says it's a promo - if the [rare?] promos are yellow that might start to make sense why nobody seems to have one...

There were several issues of Republic. Each version came out on their new label London, each version contained 11 tracks including four singles, and each version was total and utter fucking shit.

So we know from The Dress that colours can show up differently in photos than in real life.
And we also know from the above experience in bold that this can hapen.

Well, considering orange and yellow are next to each other on the colour spectrum, it seems plausible enough to me that it could just be a weird photo, and that it's really orange.

There is. That's what happens when you try to scan a fluorescent orange object. There is no yellow version.

I do know what I'm talking about. Smile

Put your copy on a flatbed scanner and see how the color comes out. I ended up photographing mine in indirect sunlight to get a hi-res version with the correct color. You can even see along the edges that it looks a little more yellow than orange.
