Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Wings over $140

Looks like the tracklist and contents we published earlier were correct. Amazon com has started the preordering of the Wings Over America set at $140.57
The original 28-track album on 2 discs, remastered at Abbey Road Studios.
8 previously unreleased bonus audio tracks recorded live at the Cow Palace in San Francisco.
Bonus DVD featuring the 75 minute TV special Wings Over The World and a brand new short film charting the tour route in photographs.
All set within a numbered hardbound slipcase containing:
-112-page book written by David Fricke, featuring new interviews and extensive tour photography
-Exclusive 60-page photographic journal of Linda s images chronicling life on the road
-136-page replica tour book with itineraries, tour program, memorabilia, and lyrics plus 3 (10 x8 ) prints
-80-page book of drawings by artist Humphrey Ocean
24bit 96kHz high resolution audio versions of all 36 songs on the remastered album & bonus audio tracks, accessed via a download code inserted on a card within the deluxe edition package.
So, no "Rockshow", but it has shown up on Amazon (UK) as a Blu-ray, release date 10 June 2013, Run Time: 139 minutes. Looks like there'll be only three editions of WOA, regular, deluxe and vinyl. The regular editions will just be the good old WOA lineup from 1976.

I hope the regular deluxe edition (not SUPER deluxe) will still have the bonus disc with the San Francisco songs. I bought Ram Super Deluxe just for the Thrillington CD and I don't plan on doing that again. Even though that box set was amazing.

The standard edition will just have the 2 first discs, I'm afraid. Which is just the regular WOA material.

Hey Roger,
does this mean there won't be 3 different editions like the other archive releases had?

Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition & Super Deluxe Edition.

Yes, this time we have only found information on a standard edition and a deluxe. Plus of course the vinyl edition. I have updated the blog post to reflect this.

Roger:

Can you keep a blog of prices? Amazon.ca wants $300 for it — and Amazon.com won't ship it to Canada!
