Any news or hints yet on when the 'Low-life' definitive edition may be released? I guess even if a tracklisting has been agreed, the current vinyl shortages could still delay its release by anything up to a year, even if it's announced in the near future.

I'm sure we'll get back onto it early in 2022. Warners block book with their manufacturers which means they can prioritise whatever they want into those bookings, so there's no reason why a release in 2022 isn't possible, if it's ready.

^ Not a peep as far as I'm aware. If I recall, the announcement/press release ahead of the Movement one was 4 months. Can't remember how many months ahead the PCL one was, was it a bit shorter at 2 months or something?

Only clue I've found whilst Googling it is this vinyl test pressing of the album from last year on Discogs.

Only other significant search result is this forum thread!

Never really understood the appeal of collecting white labels - but someone bought this for £195?!

You have to assume that it's the same Frank Arkwright remaster from 2015 too - so not even a different master source

Given it sold on 5 March and my post about it was on 4 March, it's probably fairly safe to assume someone bought it after reading about it in this thread. There's certainly some dedicated/crazy (delete as appropriate) collectors out there...!

hey, i resemble that remark.

of course, its nice to have 1 offs, or early/proto versions of albums,
if you can afford it, or want it bad enough.

at some point, collecting the regular releases is just boring, and if
you have the promos, the next level is test pressings and acetates.

but i haven't gotten past the promo point, i do have some white labels
though.

later

Acetates, test pressings and white labels are the grails at the highest end of the NO collectors market.

Most of these collectors have practically everything else, so fighting over these is the final flex. I've traded with most of them before but don't buy into these much.

I landed a rare NO acetate in the early days of eBay and have been offered some large amounts for it since. Back then you could get them for less than a hundred bucks. Now they're often in the thousands. Kicking myself for not loading up, of course.

Also kicking myself for not buying more than two copies of the US Technique Tourbook at a promoter's house, mid-90s. He had a huge stack of them in mint condition; I'm talking hundreds of copies for $5 each. Kind of a surreal find in Perth, AU.

I'd like to know too. I hope it's still on the cards.

If anyone knows the status of the Joy Division live box set too, that would be helpful.

My lowlife an£ brotherhood albums are the ones in the poorest condition so I was really hoping these would get the deluxe box set edition. If they don’t hurry up we will be too old to enjoy them!

C’mon, Johnny James.

Tell us that the greatest band ever hasn’t deserted us.

That there’s a box set, complete with tracing paper sleeve, a full-length ‘Elegia’, a vocal version of ‘Let’s Go’ and two DVDs crammed with haphazardly brilliant live performances.

Just a sign. So we don’t all give up.

It'll be a single DVD this time. We had a lot of material for PCL, and this isn't the case for the rest.

It's still coming along, we might make it for 2022, but I can't guarantee that it won't slip into early next year.

Great to know it's still ticking along!

No worries on the single DVD. I'm sure whatever you put on there will be excellent.
