I guess those are the same bonuses that will appear on the eventual domestic reissues? If so, humph. Rough Mix looks intriguing, and the demos on Empty Glass might be worth a listen, but...

Where the #@(*$& are the B-sides? Classified? Dance It Away? Man Watching? Night School? Man Machines? Real World?

Geez. What a wasted opportunity.

Hey Fang. Didn't realize you were posting here as "Rspaight".

I've always liked the Animal demo.

Am I to assume that all 3 of the above are Pete songs?

I really, really like Soupy Sales. And Porsches.

I'll sell you my Who collection for $132 million.

I assume lots of those bonus tracks match demos already available on bootleg?

(like how the entire reel of Entwistle 1979 demos surfaced right before "Too Late The Hero" came out...)

To answer my own question.."Only You" and "Silly Little Man" are Ronnie Lane tracks whilst "Good Question" is a Pete track.

Cool. No temptation to buy overpriced Japanese fetish items.

Assuming there's nothing unique on those, anyway.

How are Mary Jane, I Always Say, and Begin The Beguine? If one has the Ryko Who Came First would it be worth picking up the new reissue to get the 3 exclusice tracks?

Begin the Beguine is on Another Scoop. Cole Porter.

I'm assuming the others are on the Avatar box, but that thing sounds so bad I really haven't listened to it much.

Am I correct in assuming Jon Astley mastered all of these?

According to the new (and possibly final) ICE, only WCF, Rough Mix, Empty Glass and Scoop are actually remastered. The rest are the same as the existing CDs. The four listed above will be reissued worldwide by Universal at some point, as well as actual remasters with different bonus tracks for the other albums. The source for this was Astley, so I assume he's doing the work.
