Christmas shopping

November 18, 2020

Well, I think we did suggest they would probably milk the Whoosh collectors more if they could and here we go, firstly with a special edition which “celebrates the chart success of the album”, aimed at anyone who hasn’t yet bought it. Titled the Hat-trick Edition it’s a CD set with all the usual bits on from before plus three patches and a fridge magnet! And a CD featuring the sound of a barrel being scraped? The snap here shows it in all its glory.

Meantime in Japan they have rounded up all the live extras off the limited editions which they are putting out on a new edition of Whoosh there, released on Christmas Day! This has a bonus disc of Live in Rio 2017 – but critically, this only contains the tracks from Rio already released on the 10″ vinyls from the Whoosh box set NOT the extras included on the HMV etc ‘exclusive’. My thanks to Tokyo Tim for the explainer. Needless to say we’d expect them to let us catch our breath and then push out a full Rio 2017 before very much longer.
