Older JBC material on CD appears to be just as hard to find in London, as Matt
and others informed me. "Fishcotheque" was the oldest I found; other than that,
there were tons of _used_ copies of "Illuminate," a few copies of "BPSP" and
"Edward's Closet." I'm sure I went to at least 30 record shops in the course of
my search. The shop owners either a) looked at me somewhat strangely, or b) said
that any older JBC material which might come in usually is sold within the day.
the mystery of all these used copies of illuminate had me puzzled for a
few moments when I started seeing them popping up all over the place.
However, as far as I can see, *every* record store in the UK got sent a
promo copy of illuminate... what else are they supposed to do with it?
What appears most odd to me is that no copy I have seen has any kind of
promo-identifying sticker on it / hole cut out / etching etc. etc. etc.
Is that normal for creation d'you think? Strikes me that if everyone buys
a 'second hand' promo copy of Illuminate then recorded sales are going to
be pretty damn poor.
Maybe it's a conspiracy by McGee to get rid of Pat...
