Just wanted to say i just got the new Deluxe Ogdens 3 cd set,and i must say i'm really enjoying cd 2 with alternate versions and different takes,some real great stuff on this,not listened to either the mono or stereo cds yet,but they'll get played soon,im just so taken with cd2!!Anyone else enjoying cd2?
In answer to your question, YES! I'm thoroughly enjoying this one...
I put off going for this for some two months I guess, as I thought I've bought this so many times over there'd be nothing new here to hear. Boy, was I wrong! As you've said above, CD2 is worth the price of admission (small though it was really, £14.74 for three CD's? Sweet deal I say). I always love to hear previously unreleased material, and this disc is a dream come true.. like you, I'll be returning to this over and over again.
I've never been a big fan of the mono... I know, I can hear "BLASPHEMER!" being screamed in certain circles. But I've got two good ears and I like to use them, that's just the way I am. I find it a bit muddled compared to disc 3, the mighty fine stereo version.
All in all, this set has inspired a new passion for the band and I'm going to go for the lot, plus the promised Box Set when it's released.
