    Default Caravan: In the land of grey and pink - Pre order!

    Saw this on the Rush Moving Pictures thread.
    -------------------------------------------
    So far it's only on Amazon UK:
    h$$p://www.amazon.co.uk/Land-Grey-Pi...2130419&sr=8-4

    Frankly, I'd be surprised if I saw a domestic USA listing for it and Amazon USA import price will probably be a lot higher. £12.99 *less* VAT (plus shipping) ain't too bad for a 3 disc set.....

    I pre-ordered with the price guarantee - came to £13.91
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I just ordered and it was same price to San Diego.

    What's annoying with Amazon is the complete lack of details. Why a 3 disc set i wonder?

    Steven Wilson said he remixed a whole heap of outtakess so maybe theer is a lot of stuff.
    I see on Caravans web site they state that there is also a long lost video on the DVD.

    The details are not even on Caravan's website yet but I suspect that more will be known soon. I suspect the 3 dsics could be something like:
    1) the album
    2) outtakes, b-sides, rarities etc
    3) the dvd

    or perhaps a disc with the original album mix and one with a new mix and the outtakes plus the dvd.

    I already preordered. Steve Wilsons involvement is enough assurance for me.

    Well shoot Neil. I thought "Steven Wilson" meant hi-Rez. Is it only DTS? Is it blu-Ray?

    Not much info available yet. Gonna hold off on a pre-order until I see more. I'll still end up getting it in all likelyhood.

    The Caravan website lists songs on the three cds as does Amazon and also mentions a 5.1 mix being done. They are not sure if the dvd is included or will be separate. Looks like lots of alternate takes and BBC live versions.
    Even if only a DTS version is available I'l still get it, DTS can still sound good. I was reminded of that when I listened to the first Porcupine Tree live dvd this weekend.

    $36 on Amazon.com seems a bit high if it's 14 pounds in the UK? May have to order it across the pond...

    But the tracklisting looks so good, and it was mixed by Steven Wilson, so maybe I'll get it depending on the price...

    I owned Cunning Stunts and Blind Dog at St. Dunstan's on vinyl way back when and enjoyed them very much. For no specific reason, I never got any Caravan on the "popular CD format" (as Letterman used to call it) when I was transitioning so I haven't heard them in at least 25 years. Looking forward to this one.

    My order has shipped from Amazon - could be here on Saturday, a lovely start to the bank holiday weekend.

    As OD says, Golf Girl is pure pop perfection...

    mine is on the way too, hopefully will arrive shortly after I'm back from vacation (and a Blackfield show!). Glad I pre-ordered with the price guarantee - the price did indeed go down since I placed my order and I was informed that I've now saved an addition 6p....yahoo, I'm going on a spending spree with that!
