Umm...4 releases in 18 months. At this rate it'll take another 12 years to complete these. I'm beginning to wonder whether at some point they will stop the deluxe books as they take too long to produce, and just release the standard and deluxe digipacks.

On the subject of content there's also an abundance of demo's recently discovered in Scotland. I wonder if any of these will make the release -

Around 29 demos from the Summer of 1970 were discovered in Scotland recently that contained all of the demos for Ram with two of the songs having never been recorded. The 29 demos recorded between May - August 1970 are (with comments in parenthesis):

Heart of The Country (great voice and feel)
Too Many People (embryonic version)
Why Am I Crying a.k.a. 4th of July (embryonic version)
Back Seat of My Car (wonderful)
Just Another Day (great)
Gypsy Get Around a.k.a Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey (on ukulele)
Ram On (on ukulele)
Rupert-Sunshine Sometime (cool)
Rupert-Guitar Song Instrumental a.k.a. When The Wind Is Blowing (with whistling)
Rupert-Little Lamb Dragonfly (magical)
Smile Away (at the end Paul talks to Linda about having Jimi Hendrix and a jazz drummer for forming a trio to records this song soon)
Love Is Long (with Linda and unknown verses)
Eat At Home/Buddy's Breakfast/Indeed I Do (medley with Linda, loose)
Monkberry Moon Delight/Frenzy (medley, wonderful and crazy)
Get On The Right Thing (another chat between Paul and Linda at the end about Jimi's possible involvement, great take)
Little Woman Love
Country Dreamer (with insects noise)
Long Haired Lady (with Linda)
I Lie Around (country feel)
3 Legs (drunk version, totally out of tune)
We're So Sorry a.k.a Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey (drunk too)
A Love For You (bluesy slow version)
She Can't Be Found a.k.a Hey Diddle (country tune)
Some People Never Know (great home version)
Hands Across The Water a.k.a. Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey (fun but too long)
Tomorrow (with a fun quote about yesterday at the end, Paul said he wrote this as a game)
Big Barn Bed (embryonic version on guitar)
Great Day (with the kids around)
I Am Your Singer (with Linda)
Man I could smell your breath a mile away.

Wasn't there a demos disc on that 'leaked' plan for the remasters schedule?

I've heard that the deluxe book will be 3 CD and 1 DVD so maybe the tapes have been cleaned up, digitalized and will form the basis for one of the CD's.

I hope there's not too much juicy stuff on a 3rd disc -- been buying the 2CDs so far and really can't justify £60 or whatever it is for the book etc

The Ram remaster is the oneI mostly look forward to and I will definitively spend my money on the deluxe edition . Because Ram is one of my alltimefavourite albums all categories. It such a great pop record
