    Didn't see this posted anywhere...

    For those of you who are big Aimee Mann fans, she's releasing a Special Edition of Lost in Space which will be limited to 20,000 copies.

    Disc 1 will contain the same tracks as the previous version, Disc 2 will contain 6 Live tracks, 2 b-sides that was only made available in the original Limited Edition CD, and 2 new unreleased songs.

    Track Listing:

    Disc: 1

    1. Humpty Dumpty
    2. High On Sunday 51
    3. Lost In Space
    4. This Is How It Goes
    5. Guys Like Me
    6. Pavlov's Bell
    7. Real Bad News
    8. Invisible Ink
    9. Today's The Day
    10. The Moth
    11. It's Not

    Disc: 2

    1. Real Bad News (Live)
    2. The Moth (Live)
    3. This Is How It Goes (Live)
    4. The Scientist (Live)
    5. Invisible Ink (Live)
    6. It's Not (BBC)
    7. Nightmare Girl (B-side)
    8. Backfire (B-side)
    9. Fighting The Stall (Unreleased)
    10. Observatory (Unreleased)

    and Pavlov's Bell music video.

    I'm glad I didn't double-dip by picking up the SACD... as this version offers alot more bang for the buck over the SACD.

    Probably overkill for the casual fan, but this is a must-have for me.

    I'd be all over this if there were a version that included the SACD. I already have the original CD, and love it, but can't see getting a second copy of the standard CD.

    Wow, even though I *have* double-dipped on the SACD I may be tempted to pick this up for the live stuff and unreleased tracks. I simply love Lost in Space. It's one of those rare collections of songs I find myself drawn to more and more with each listen and I definitely think it's Aimee's best work to date.

    Any word on when this is coming out and how much it will be?

    Well since I can't find the SACD anywhere locally (and don't yet have an SACD player) I guess I'll double dip on this one.

    Do we know if this is going to be available at the big chains (I know it's only 20,000 run but still, maybe one of the big three will get copies)?

    Sorry guys... forgot to post the release date.

    Amazon.com is listing it as Nov. 18th.

    Priced at $19.99... about 7 bucks cheaper than the SACD.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=music

    I'm really looking forward to it.

    I love all her work and think she's an amazing talent.

    Rich,

    I have a SACD player, and I've heard good things about the SACD sound quality, but from my experience - newer recordings don't offer as big of an improvement in sound quality... whereas the older stuff (from analog masters)make a much bigger difference IMO.

    I shyed away from the SACD in the first place because the price was outrageous - $36 CAD (before taxes and S&H) at Amazon.ca.

    By the way, I forgot to mention that the 2nd disc also comes with the music video for Pavlov's Bell - if that sorta stuff floats anyone's boat.
    Editing my initial post to include this.

    Yeah... MFSL discs are and always have been real pricey. But they're doing some great work on SACD. The Patricia Barber titles are reference discs, and I just can't believe what they managed to pull out of that old, highly produced Isaac Hayes title. And don't think that just 'cause it's a new pop title that they can't do it well... that Aimee Mann production is really fine, even given the unusual "instrumentation". Plus, they lay off the compressers and limiters and other digital crap that ruins the mastering of even well-recorded music to CD. Not that the original "Lost in Space" CD was very bad, but it's not as good as the MFSL red book and not even in the same ballpark as the SACD layer.

    Just noticed that Amazon's dropped the price down to $16.99.

    Decent price.

    I ordered this a couple of weeks ago, I own the 'regular' edition. But the contents on Disc 2 was enough to convince me of a re-purchase, i've never heard Aimee live and probably won't be able to. Her albums are hard to find without ordering and I had to buy her first 2 solo albums from Amazon because they don't even sell them here. So this is about the closest I can get to a live recording even if it is a few tracks.

    Has anyone here seen Aimee live? How was the show?

    I saw her in August, and one of the parts I remember most vividly was during "The Moth" when she started singing "So come on, let's go, ready or not." I thought the lighting job was very nice and the blend of lights going on and off and the music totally clicked during that part of the song. The lighting job was basically the same thing during the whole show, so the song definitely helped. [​IMG]

    Since there's going to be a live version of "The Moth" on it, I'm going to have to get it. I bought the regular edition used, so I wouldn't lose much by selling it.

    why not? she's done an excellent version of it in recent years. i've seen her the last 5 or 6 times that she's passed through this town (solo and with michael penn), and perhaps once she didn't play it.
