Uh huh. Yea.

Here’s a little teaser for the next Omnibus Edition out 1/25/2011

Disc 1 restores the CD to the original vinyl sequence with no bonus tracks.
Disc 2 presents the original working mixes (most of the songs were recorded live in one take) and reveals different balances to the ingredients of the sonic jigsaw (often with clearer vocals). Though it’s heresy to suggest it, some of these raw mixes have an energy that may improve on the final tracks. All these versions are previously unreleased.
Disc 3 collects the singles and alternative edits and recordings with six John Peel session versions of album tracks.

Compiled for fans, the Omnibus Editions are intended to expand and illuminate the development of specific albums, bringing together all the relevant single releases with previously unreleased studio, session and live recordings. This release is presented as a limited edition box set and includes CD’s in the Japanese-style paper sleeves, reproducing the original vinyl cover art, with a 48 page book featuring new interviews.

As you might have read elsewhere, the Beggars Group catalog (4AD, Beggars Banquet, Mantra, Matador, Rough Trade, Too Pure, True Panther Sounds, XL Recordings and Young Turks) will no longer be available via eMusic as of November 18.

This is unfortunate, but as eMusic has brought more major labels into the fold,  they have changed the terms on which they deal with labels, some of which we have found impossible to accept, in our own interests, those of our artists, and ultimately those of their fans.

We’re grateful for the support Beggars has received from eMusic in the past.

The Beggars Group catalog will continue to be available via many other great sites and stores.
