Just come back from a couple of weeks away and was hoping to find this on my doormat, but nothing Sad

Has the release date been changed, or is just my order? Checked my spincds account and it just states 'processing' but I couldn't see any release date on the item itself Confused

Not sure, but hopefully, its my first order with them - but most online retailers in my experience tend to post in time to be delivered on release date.

I've just finished watching the DVD. It is a top notch performance by The Selecter, although I'm not sure about the synthesiser touches on 'Too Much Pressure'. The gig concludes with an organised stage invasion of sorts which includes the youngest little mod ever to attend a gig.

I have to admit I still preferred Pauline in her rude girl clobber.

An interview with Neol Davies forms the basis of the liner notes and he admits that a roadies mother taped over his original recording of the gig!!!.

According to SpinCD they were still awaiting stock when I contacted them this morning, I was told they would be shipped as soon as they arrived at the store which should have been this afternoon.

I just checked my E-mail and my order is still being processed?

I have waited 35 years for this DVD so a few more days of waiting won't hurt Smile

Pure class.....mine came yesterday and I watched it straight away.
So much energy - Pauline was outstanding & Desmond Brown was such a great entertainer. Not sure about the sound quality though - sounded too thin and not as 'heavy' as the original band sounded.
No line up will ever compete with the originals......brilliant

I agree that there was a heavy roots sound to the original band which this recording didn't capture at all. I don't know if this has been lost in the original broadcast or by the digital transfer, but it isn't there.

Still it's one of the last performances by the original line up and for that it's worth every penny. Bands just don't seem to give performances like that any more.

still waiting for mine from spincds.....

sent an email to them yesterday and got this response today:

Our stock is overdue, we received an email earlier pre-advising of delivery tomorrow. We suspect the distributor is prioritising the big fish ahead of us small independents. Will ship priority once received.

so hopefully for us who ordered from spin, it could be in the post tomorrow

Still waiting on Spin too.

I suppose the fact this was originally a TV broadcast would explain the reason for a weak audio mix.

At this rate I would be cancelling my order from Spin and ordering from Amazon.

Check your E-mail / Spin account, I was in touch with Spin a couple of times and I was told their was a delay with shipping because the Selecter cd's arrived late.

My order was shipped yesterday so I should have it tomorrow or Monday Smile

I don't mind waiting though avoiding watching the footage on Youtube hasn't been easy.
