Funny there are no more comments on the album yet. I received mine on the 16. I think it is called de luxe (without t-shirts). Some of the items in the very thick box, no book this time, are really funny. The book and all the gimmicks are in a box, because Paul wished it to be a kind of rucksack. The time of RAM reminded him of an incident, when a traveller turned up in Scotland who took a record out of his bag. Luckily they put RAM in a box, not in a bag. The reproduction of the sheets with fragments of lyrics and some such things on them is nice, because all the coffee stains, drawings of the children, the qualitiy of the paper ... are reproduced. The rest of the "treats" gives, I think, a bit of an insight in Paul's feelings and memories of the time. There is no real value in the items for the customer, except the book of course. The sound and the extras on the CDs is of the same high standard as in the three rerelases before, the DVD, too, which means 'nice, but with the opporunity of further improvement'.
As I am not a native speaker I always look forward to the lyrics. They seem to be fawlty in 2 or 3 lines, I will have to listen again. At least I was able to get the gist of "Smile Away" now. Never had I thought that the background singing had e real meaning, I always thought it was a kind of "damdada" or "lalala".
