    Okay, a relative bargain seeing as the box set launched with a price tag of £126 before dropping to its previous, long-standing price of £99.

    With the proviso that it’s too soon to tell if it’s a bargain or not, Amazon are listing the new 14CD Bob Dylan “Rolling Thunder” box set for preorder for £59.99.

    OK, it's a download of a 4CD boxset, but £5.49 (or £7.99 if you want it at 24/44) seems like a bargain for the A Certain Ratio boxset

    I have Du the Du (Casse) on two Factory 12" singles. The first is on FACUS4 where it is the lead track: Du The Du (Casse), The Fox, Flight, And Then Again.
    The Second is FACDP1204 which is a 2x12" release on Factory Australia with Flight, Blown Away, And Then Again on the frst disc and then the four tracks from FACUS4 on the second 12".
    The Factory Double was also released on Factory Italy and Factory New Zeeland, but I have never seen copies.

    Du The Du (Casse) never saw a local UK release as a single and was never released on 7". Other than that it is a superb track and I possibly need to get out a bit more.

    From that box set, this is *very* good for a 'lost' track.

    Beware of Music Magpie CDs. I've received more than a handful with fungus, even after lots of complaining, so I no longer buy from the.

    Magpie not perfect but have always treated me well.
    Fungus on the CD ?!
    Not good, but won't it wash off with warm soapy water ?

    Fungus feeds on the polycarbonate layer. I wonder if it will feed on the surface of the laser lens...

    I’ll bump this as it finishes tonight. I don’t know if the fungus mentioned above only affected second hand purchases, but I ought to point out that all of these are brand new CDs. I’ve gone for the Dolphy and a second hand copy of ‘Thelonious Monk Trio’ to push me over £25.

    I remember that, in the days before I had CDs :)
    Nothing since 2001 that I can find plus...

    Even though this fungus widespread it could only develop on a CD in high humidity and high temperature, which is not the case most of the time
