Zu Laut! - revised edition

Revised editions now available
As predicted, the new information in Record Collector about the correct running order of the songs in the Star Club sets have inspired Beatlefans to compile a revised album.
It's the makers of the April "Zu Laut!" set who have rosen to the occasion, and presented two new editions of the album, one in mono and one in stereo.
In the inner page of the CD booklet, they have also included information about the missing songs, as described in Grossberg's notes and Gottfridsson's article. After the publication of the article, further listening has revealed that the four notes at the start of "I Remember You" on the Lingasong set actually turns out to be the start of "Glad All Over"!
This now constitutes the first ever Star Club Beatles compilation, unofficial or official, that presents the tracks (at least within each section/set) in their correct running order.
Some of the songs that were tape damaged or had missing notes have had these reconstructed, however the originals are also included for historical accuracy in an extra folder.
The layout of the new 2CD sets (the DVD is not included this time) is as follows:

It's gone already. Does anybody has another link?

No, still there. Here's a direct link to that particular topic.

You do a great job of keeping us up to date with this stuff. Thanks so much. Mono and stereo, eh? In this particular instance, Lord Reith deserves an enormous thank you as well.

Somebody really needs to get their hands on the 'Oxtango Definitive Remaster' edition of this record. I've been searching for it forever, now! :(
