Is this the real life ?
Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide of Chemical ecstacy.

OK, I found it on Spotify and Youtube Music.

So if you hit THIS it gives you original album + 5 bonus tracks + all of Live at Lowlands.
Which is nice. [I've never listened to Lowlands before in my life! :o]

How much money did y'all spend in advance on this?

I guuess we could embed all the YT vids, although that would make it a long-ass post...

Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death
every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.

Just got my CD and postcard set! The CD cover looks stunning, so do the postcards.
Use imagination as a destination.

Ooh Chemical Beats going for a Higher State of Consciousness "tribute".
I don't usually listen to old live stuff (-more interested in new live stuff).
But maybe I should...

I have previously expressed not-so-positive thoughts about Setting Sun live at Glastonbury (TPPR single). But perhaps the live version from that time works better within the context of the show than it does when you just play it by itself.

What's the vocal around 4 mins into Mind Response? "I'm jiggy now I've seen her"??

MY BODY WAS NOT READY FOR LOWLANDS!

The feeling that Im getting listening to this is when I saw them live for the first time. I'm really getting knocked back to the 90's with this set.

2 weeks till I get my DYOH copy! I see that some already got theirs!

From the pics I've seen, its beautiful!
This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

For anyone who gets the LP soon, can they confirm if there is a download code and if yes, does it include the Lowlands set?

"I'm taking LSD"
I can't take the hearbreak of you leaving me again
And I'm not the one I was back then, no, no, no, no
One thing I can't take is to sit home all alone
Do what you like, my dear, but I'm not staying home

Speaking of tributes. In the "directors commentary" that T&E did for DYOH in 2012 (that was then slighty edited for this year's Blessed Madonna radio show), Tom mentions the tribute to Joey Beltram's Energy Flash in the title track. You can hear it around 1:47 to 2:16 on the track. He also mentions how the bassline from Doin It After Dark influenced DYOH (the track). The lower bassline bubbling along the bottom.

Worth a listen if anyone here hasn't yet. Link still available on page 3 of this thread.
Also the slightly longer version is still stream-able on the BBC website if you're able to access it from your location...

"I'm taking LSD"

Ahh, hence previous references to this. Mind you, I think I prefer my slightly radical 'interpretation' of the line.

When did you see them back then? Around 1997?

I'll compile them into a playlist on the archive channel here in a few seconds

Absolutely blown away by the Lowlands recording. Holy shit.

Words to describe it are clean and raw!

Wait a sec! Does anyone know if this lowlands recording was ever released before? If not, I question the timing of this release which is close to the new 25th DYOH album.

I bet ( or in theory) the lowlands recording was supposed to be on the DYOH 25th album/ CD

Wild guess.
This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

for some reason when I read the email announcement I expected the lowlands gig to be a free download but I guess it's just free on youtube? perhaps when I get my LP the download link will include it.

If it's not included, and people want to own it in Lossless, then Qobuz might have you covered.

I'm kinda thinking this Lowlands surprise has turned out to be the best thing about the DYOH anniversary.

IT ARRIVED! I got number 351 / 1997.

great work to the production team for getting it in my hands, in USA, just two days after release.

no download code in sight though... c'mon guys, how many times do you expect me to buy this album?

Seriously is. I'm not largely familiar with some of the older live bootleg recordings, so all of this is a pretty fresh experience.

I now have a better understanding of why stubborn nearsighted fans from the early days basically rejected anything post- 'Dig Your Own Hole'. Good Lord, this is one fierce set!

Disappointed to find out that my Air Pod Pros let the bass crackle on 'Three Little Birdies Down Beats' and 'Elektrobank'. Can anybody confirm these as weak points in the recording? Either way, the bass crackling clicked fond memories of myself at 17 cruising in my shitty White Chrysler LeBaron convertible (... yup, just like the CAKE song), blasting said tunes on a low performing ghetto sound system at like 2 in the morning.

The title track (DYOH) with the "Base 6" interlude/breakdown is phenomenal. What a fucking gift!

I have no clue why this is not a separate release. This is way too hot to be an afterthought on an anniversary release. Tom and Ed, if you're reading this please consider a limited "physical" release for Black Friday or Record Store Day.

Thanks Tom and Ed!

You need some older sets, Bosco?

I think I still have access to Ben_j's public folder. I'll come back to you if I'm craving something I can't get access to from the past. Thanks for asking.

As much as I love Lowlands - it's much more interesting than the newly released mixes and indeed the absolute highlight of the anniversary edition - it's really kinda disappointing that it's neither released on CD/LP nor included as download. I already paid EUR 120 (incl. shipping, VAT & handling) for 3LP+2CD+Polaroids from the official store and now I'm gonna have to shelve out another EUR 25 for the download version...

It's frustrating, but let's keep in mind, there was no deception here. It wasn't known that the Lowlands set was part of the digital release until the actual release date.

Why they added this last minute, I don't know. Like I mentioned before, this would have been a significant release on its own. And now it seems like it, more-or-less, will be buried into obscurity.
