Which one to buy? The expensive extended special version or the regular? There's a big difference in the costs...

Thanks for the information Cor. I know which one I want but that doesn't mean that's the one I'll get!

I will read the reviews of all the versions and then decide.

So what's the story on this?

After having misgivings about the emergence of a 2nd version, (I can't recall too many examples of this one-up-man-ship in the 60s.....alas now it seems par for the course), I am getting the 'full monty' edition bought for me in November, but unless I go into London on Thursday to get the £30 one, I'm left twiddling my thumbs for 5 weeks while everyone else has a gas and gets to know what Paul had for breakfast on 24th May 1958!

What to do?

I've decided to wait for the 'full monty' (my birthday/Christmas present this year).
As I think it officially came out last Thursday (10th), has anyone any comments on the book so far?

Given the huge influence Chuck Berry, Lonnie Donegan, Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly etc. were on the young Beatles (frankly, without them, no Beatles) it's heartening to see in the NME Top 500 Albums List, published last Tuesday, that there is only one (ONE!!!!) Rock 'n' Roll LP, Elvis's debut.

I'm still waiting for my hard copy.  >:(  Maybe it's time to rethink my devotion to print.
