Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

AFAIK, the CDs are the same, but the jewel case edition has a 12-page booklet and the digipak edition has a 24-page one.

The AOR Bleu excerpt sounds like the part that's been floating around the internet for a while.
The MFS excerpt is something new, though.

It's no new, it was played 'live' back in (I believe) 2006, the Live Printemps de Bourges 2002
mini concert. It's edited short though for this version. So still no full studio release in the end.

Not really, it's been long available as part of that Radio Luxembourg AM broadcast.

The 30s-Preview-snippet of the 'Music for Supermarkets (demo excerpt)' sounds like (end of) Part 1 from the 1983 Radio-Luxembourg-Broadcast -- Pos. 12:27-14:45 in this Video: https://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=J5CqOnzEM1Q .

Direct comparison: https://bit.ly/2LB0Cfn (Preview-snippet) vs. https://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=J5CqOnz ... 17&end=847 (RL-Broadcast Pos. 13m37s-14m07s).


Edit on 2-Sep-2018: the above YouTube-Video was blocked by Sony Music due to Copyright reasons.

Wouldn't say they sound much alike with the terrible audio the recording is at :nod:

Better quality previews @ saturn.de. Some are 44/128, others 24/~96 (VBR), but overall better than those @ sounds-venlo (note: previews might not be available when browsing using a mobile phone)

Why doesn't he release all the MFS material on one high quality album? THAT would be interesting. 8)

Likely because he wants to maintain the status of MFS: "one unique copy ever". That's why we're not likely to see anything else. That's why I'm disappointed we got the second track instead of the first one.

Then again, even though it's an "open secret" that even if the MFS masterplates et al were destroyed (live at the auction, even), other copies and audio survives (Diva, Rendez-Vous 5 pt. 2, this new MFS Demo sounds just about identical to the one on the album and "Ethnicolor II" clearly uses some of the MFS "supermarket recordings")....

.... there's still a semi-chance that of all the tracks that might have been fully destroyed at the auction, the first one was it. ;P

I fail to hear that.

Hmm, I'll have to check it later, but IIRC both Ethnicolor II and the last part of MFS have a sample of some guy yelling (bad transcription: "Yo, eeh!") in the crowd.

Yay! Of course, now that I think about it (and since I rarely listen to that track) the end of Ethnicolor II really sounds like some kind of an "epilogue" to MfS.
