Oho...2018? I take it that there's no physical release planned? Shame, if so.

It's on iTunes too.

I've said in the past that I think the most we'll probably get with future EBX releases is as downloads only.

I always though that part of the point of EBX 1 - 4 was to make available on CD a number of tracks that had only previously been available
on vinyl - particularly all the limited edition stuff.

But pretty much everything released after the first four sets was released on CD anyway, so there wasn't as much point to doing further boxsets.

EBX 1 - 4 would have had more appeal as people wanted to 'replace' their collections on CD.

From 'Always' onwards, people were mainly buying CDs anyway.

For me, the only appeal an EBX6 would have is for 'RTTS - Diss-cuss mi and 'F&T(CSD) Tin Tin Out Instrumental'. But EVERY disc in EBX 1 - 4 had something of value.

The mission now I think is to get that archive available online for downloading!

Sure would be nice to see a physical release but we all know that Mute will be better off with Downloads. Mute doesn't have to print and press anything.

As I kind of suggested in my last post, when these kind of things get released, I look for the tracks that haven't been released digitally before.

You know, like those extra mixes that were originally only on vinyl, that sort of thing.

Or perhaps even things that were only available on cassette.

Like the 'Run To The Sun' Intergalactic Mix, or the 'Because You're So Sweet' Session Version.

There were only FOUR tracks from this period that needed to be included to fulfill that brief.

TWO of them are not there.

True Love Wars (Omni Plus) from "Stay with me" 12" also not included. Shame!

Funny timing because I have recently been putting together my own make-shift EBX playlists for everything after EBX 4.  But download only?  No thanks.  Kinda defeats the purpose to give it the EBX designation when it's not a box!

Even though people, myself included, were buying all of this on CD at the time, it would still be nice to have a box set with everything.  I'd love to consolidate my collection as I did with the earlier singles with EBX 1-4 came out.  4 nice, neat boxes are much better than all the CDs and LCDs, etc.  The track listing is incomplete, so I guess I'm not as bummed as I could be that we won't get a physical release.  Another kick to the nuts for us fans.

Well, whatever Mute.

These were released on CD in the US.  Intergalactic Mix on the RttS US promo and BYSS on the ILS US single.  I'm happy to send you lossless copies if you send me a pm.

Almost all of that playlist is blocked in the US. I take it the iTunes listing is equally limited. I have yet to try Spotify for EBX6 in the US, but have a feeling...

Yeah... the EBX prefix is really just part of the catalogue number. I don't think it was ever intended to be the actual name of the series - it's just that
it was featured as part of the design of the original single box sets and it's sort of retrospectively become the name of them.

I think the sets were just called 'Erasure 1', 'Erasure 2' etc at the time (not very inspiring for sure), with each disc being called EBX 1.1, EBX 1.2 etc.

EBX was just a shorthand way to refer to them which has kind of stuck.

Give it time and I'm sure it'll be blocked in the UK and elsewhere as well. I'm not convinced of its legitimacy and I've seen these kind of
comprehensive archives of Erasure (and other bands') material suddenly become unavailable before.

Having said that, some of the individual tracks do seem to still be available, particularly when they've been used on the EIS channel - so I wonder if they're
supposed to be only available for industry use? Somebody forgot to set them to 'private' or something maybe!
