Annually

Annually has to be my highlight.

The reissues left me a bit underwhelmed to be honest - yes they are very nice to have, and I like the sleeve notes and new tracks, but I felt it came up a bit short on some of that extra content especially with Yes and Elysium.

The Annually book was slick, smart, and kept to the Literally formula. It makes total economic sense from the PSB perspective, and I love the hardback edition. Get a few of those in the next few years (presumably the covers will be different colours) and that will look superb on a bookshelf!

The CD with it was a nice touch for the launch, and presumably they wont repeat that for the next issue, although frankly I think it would be nice if they did release some limited content this way (I'll be the first to bitch about not ordering in time to get a copy though! Ha ha) but I think in the changing world of technology receiving a good honest hardback book and CD in the mail is very satisfying and befitting the whole PSB aesthetic in the world today! :)

RE: Annually

Annually was my highlight too. I agree with you Gabby that it is very satisfying to have a hardback book & the CD that came with it was an added bonus. Customs must have thought the CD in the same package with the book was suspicious as the package was very carefully slit open at one end through the sticky tape!! But nothing was damaged!!

RE: Annually

A recent posting on the official PSB website suggested that chances were good that there would indeed be another Annual in 2018. Only time will tell, of course.

I meant, "Annually," of course, not "Annual."

They have stated that a new one will be released every year.
