Thanks Liam

It's good to know that The Wha'ppen Bonus Footage plays on some DVD Players. I still have 3 Players that I haven't tried yet but I will now Smile

Can anyone shed any light on track 15 on Wha'ppen bonus cd? It's 59 seconds long and seems to be about Freddie Laker Airways.

Cheers,

Jim

I've decided to call it The Lakers We Set.

It's a little ironic that by Special Beat Service they were happy to be photographed in front of a British Airways jet...

When I was flying home from Norwich last may their were no seats left on the plane so the few of us that were left standing were seated in the emergency exit row which was reserved but made available at the last minute, I was given the window seat so it was my job to open the emergency exit if anything went wrong Shocked but I wasn't told about this before or during the flight. and they charge extra for More leg room Laughing

Just realised that they've put the same version of I Confess on disc 2 twice - instead of the original Dave Allen remix it plays the US version.

They also missed out the US 7" version of Hit It on Wha'ppen (the version that appears on 'What Is Beat'). Not really an issue I suppose given that it is available elsewhere - but from a 'complete collection on 1 cd' kind of way it's a minor blip.

Still, to be fair, the 3 re-issues are superb
Very Happy

Jim

Well at least The BBC Sessions are alright I would have hated if they left any of them out. I found a way of Copying the dvd's so I can now watch the Bonus footage on Wha'ppen? Very Happy

I have Hit It US on What Is English Beat and Save it for later (Dave Allen Mix) is on B.P.M. Smile
