I could have sworn I posted this yesterday but I can't find the post so I can only assume i didn't work. Anyway, on 20th Jan, Drag City are reissuing Twin Infinitives and one of the Self Titled records on vinyl. I am excited by this. Look here:

Apologies if this has already been posted. I could find any evidence of that being the case though.

That's good news. No extras though is a bit of a shame. There most have been arseloads for the TI sesions. I wonder if they'll shorten those huge gaps between the tracks on that album too.

That's what I was thinking too. Because of the nature of that record, I'd have expected a lot of music that didn't make it to the album for this reissue. I'm not sure if I want to buy another copy on cd, the one I have sounds fine to these ears already.

I agree. There's absolutely no point in shelling out for a reissue of that particular album. It's a missed opportunity - especially given some of the tripe that's received the 'deluxe' and 'expanded' treatment. I'm sure in the case of Twin Infinitives they could've filled at least a disc with out-takes, alternative takes and live versions. And given that it's Drag City, they might've even seen fit to bundle it with a DVD of their rare movie 'What is Royal Trux' which I believe came from that period.

I'm just happy that it's being reissued on vinyl. I don't really want any extras, just the record as it was really. Maybe they could have accompanied the straight vinyl reissue with an expanded cd reissue.

extras can be ok when put on a separate disc, but i have no desire to rebuy albums i already own just so i can hear stuff that wasn't considered to be release worthy at the time

It's not about any desire to buy two copies of a record I already own, since I wouldn't have the money to do that with every album I like anyway, and I wouldn't even give it a thought. There is strong chance that whatever might have been left out from this album could be interesting/good stuff. Also, I don't see what difference putting the extra music on another record would do, since that is often a way of ripping off the fans. Double album? Double cd?

I think there's a good chance that material left off of the original TI would be a fair bit more interesting than that which makes the final cut of most other albums.

I don't like it when extra tracks get tacked on at the end, like on the deluxe SY re-ish's of a couple of years back, it transforms the album into something it's wasn't meant to be, so that's why i prefer to have them on a 2nd disc, the album on one CD, the fan fleecing detritus on another.

I agree. While I'm all in favour of extra tracks, different versions, etc, they do need to be kept away from the original set, ideally on a separate disc. Although whether this'd be viable when only one or two extras are included is unlikely. Having Sister end with 'Master-Dik' is a good example of where it screws things up without any real alternative, other than the preferable in my opinion of leaving it off altogether and reissuing the Master-Dik EP as is.

That I agree too, and that's why I didn't feel compelled to buy any of these deluxe versions, I just got the extra stuff burned for me by a friend instead. A package with two seperate discs I wouldn't mind, though. I bought 'Live at The Witch Trials' by the Fall with the extra cd of alternate versions that way 'cause it was the first time I was buying it and I only really cared for the original songs, which turned out to be the only ones I listen to 'cause I'm rarely interested in different versions of already finely structured music. This is a special one.

By extra cd on my other post I meant one that is sold separately with its own price tag. I think that is a rip off.

I too rarely get much from listening to alternate versions of records I already know. Even something I thought I might really enjoy, like The Beatles' six disc Anthology set, didn't really end up doing much for me. There's nothing to say that the version of a song that appears on an album or a single is necessarily going to be the best one, but it almost always seems to be the case.

The Fall's Dragnet reish is a good example, i'm glad they included the the single version of Rowche Rumble, but who needs the 6 out take versions?
And again, it would be nice if they'd put all the bonus stuff on a second disc instead.

Non-album singles that were released around the same time being used as bonus tracks gives a nice context to the album though
