    I own Prince of Wales and I’m pretty satisfied with it (sound is really great). No intention to order the 4CD set.

    Interesting stuff.

    Be interesting to hear how ‘Children of the Black’ compares to Bondage’s ‘Hartford Evil’ (Bondage Music BON349/350) – it’ll have to be going some to better it.

    Finally Offenbach gets a silver release. Bill Ward AND ‘Lonely Is The Word’.

    Darker Than Blue previously released Rainbow’s Cardiff 1983 broadcast as ‘Prince Of Wales’ (DTB 104/105). Do we know whether that has been imporved upon, or is the same with the addition of the audience that nmakes it ‘definitive’, in their eyes? I shall not be buying a4 CD set.
