Post subject: Abbey Road Live Here Now gig recordings/Live Cds Reply with quote

I have to say that the whole Abbey Road project is bloody brilliant. having seen at first hand the work and energy that goes into recording the gig, mixing it, then gettting the Cds copied,printed and into the cases is a great team effort.

The Cds are top quality, great recordings and the packaging is second to none.

Any of you bought one yet? reviews please...

I second that and strongly recommend that you purchase your copies now.I have been listening to my copy of the Amsterdam gig from the 15th and its great.I also loved listening to the Belsonic gig.They look great and should become part of any serious Specials fans collection Wink

Listen to digital samples and get your copies here.

hi guys

in case anyone is wondering why the Berlin Cds will be a track light, This is due to the recordings stopping after the allotted set list had finished but the band returned for an extra unplanned encore BUT! never fear- the Abbey Road crew will be sending out download links for the extra track " Guns Of Navarone" very soon so you dont miss out and what was, we hear, a very exciting and top night in Berlin!

Cheers- Gig reviews to follow.

They're great CDs! Got mine from Copenhagen on now.
And you get them straight after the gig. Some are autographed too...

In general would you say order them now or get CD on the night? I reckon I'm after a CD for one gig, a USB for the other and then poss a CD from best euro date (which I'll have to order) but don't wanna wait ages for them if I can buy them on the night Confused

I have Belsonic (Signed) and Amsterdam 14th and 15th so far, looking forward to hearing the first UK date soon. I haven't listened to any of the cd's so far I'll wait until after the tour. I'll be at the coventry gig so I'll pick up a copy there too. the above dates cost me a fortune but they will be great to look and listen back to when the tour finishes in November Smile

Make sure you look for the black ticket when you buy the CD before the gig Wink .. or you might get lucky and get one of a few signed copies in the queue after the show?

I think it's a great idea, and wonder how many other bands do it?

A Deluxe double vinyl with gatefold sleeve would be really nice with loads of new and old tour photos on the inner Very Happy

Not bought any as yet as I'm waiting for details on the boxset as I'd like them all - just don't want to pay for the same ones twice! Be interested to know what the USB unseen footage ones are like and whether they come with the boxset...brilliant idea though Smile

What about the less unfortunate amongst us, incapacitated and resigned to missing the tour? Of course, i can only speak for myself Twisted Evil

Buying all cd's individually: 27 dates x £20 = £540 Shocked Shocked Shocked

How much is the boxed set? And does it include a limited edition Specials spinning top? A real clincher to the deal Laughing Laughing Laughing
