3.0 out of 5 stars Pleate note: this is NOT the limited edition., 30 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Wooden Shjips (Audio CD)
Hiya, yes, this is a great cd however this is not the limited edition version as stated on this page.
Amazon.com mention the limited version as "...First 2000 copies of the CD include a bonus disc with their early vinyl output and an unedited version of Dance, California".
I ordered the version from this page, amazon.co.uk, assuming it was the limited edition (as listed in the title) but when it arrived there was no extra disc, as you can imagine, that was rather bogus.
This is a great EP, but hey, like i said this is not the limited edition version as stated. Amazon.co.uk were really helpful in sorting this issue out but my real gripe is that the title of this product should be addressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic!, 19 Feb. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh man, this is quite a marathon, I purchased this when it first came out back in 2005 and it has taken me a quite while to sit down to view them all.

Sure the film quality isnt clean and crisp but who really cares, does that matter? Take into consideration the films at your local box office, a fair few are rubbish right? well, you dont sit there and say "sure, that film was bad, but wow, what picture clarity!" no you dont, so please dont bag this wonderful show. Peter Richardson is a God and there's a stack of jems in this treasure box of laughter. Sure, ok, there is the odd dud but nonetheless great viewing.

I am old enough to remember all the classics from Five Go Mad right up to Mr Jolly Lives Next Door and More Bad News but sadly I never got to view anything pass a certain date as they never aired the latter shows in NZ. Watching all the shows I never saw from the late 80s through to just a few years ago was fantastic and there are some really great moments, such as Robbie Coltrane playing Charles Bronson in GLC, starring as the mighty tour de force ramboesque Ken Livingstone, or Adrian Edmundsen as John Major in Red Nose of Courage. Brilliant. Plus The Bullshitters returning to form in Detectives On The Edge Of A Nervous Breakdown!

The total list of shows are:

DISC 1. Five Go Mad In Dorset / War / The Beat Generation / Bad News Tour / Summer School / Five Go Mad On Mescalin.

DISC 2. Dirty Movie / Susie / A Fistful Of Travelers' Cheques / Gino - Full Story and Pics / Eddie Monsoon - A Life?

DISC 3. Slags / The Bullshitters / The Supergrass (feature movie) / Consuela

DISC 4. Private Enterprise / The Strike / More Bad News / Mr Jolly Lives Next Door

DISC 5. The Yob / Didn't You Kill My Brother / Funseekers

DISC 6. South Atlantic Raiders / South Atlantic Raiders Pt II / GLC / Spaghetti Hoops / Oxford

DISC 7. Les Dogs / Red Nose Of Courage / The Crying Game / Wild Turkey / Detectives On The Edge Of A Nervous Breakdown / Space Virgins From The Planet Sex

DISC 8. Queen Of The Wild Frontier / Gregory - Diary Of A Nutcase / Demonella / Jealousy / Four Men In a Car / Four Men In a Plane

DISC 9. The Comic Strip Presents - A Retrospective / First Laugh on Four Pt 1 / First Laugh on Four Pt 2 / The Comic Strip (Julien Temple)
