Unfortunately it has become one of the marketing strategies of the larger labels. Repackaging and selling the same album to those avid fans who will curse, but buy it anyway. Recent examples include Morrissey and Elvis Costello, as well as all those 'remastered' versions. Roddy Frame, on the other hand, a great songwriter (theme tune to Early Doors), on a small label Redemption, and not in command of the income streams of those two, put out two extra tracks for the Surf CD on his website for free. So it may be little to do with Camille, and a lot to do with Virgin.

Costello is probably the worst of the lot in this respect. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before we see a "Costello – the minor syntactical corrections to previous sleevenotes seriesâ€

I loved the show -why
- surprise element - you really had no idea what was coming next
- french element - typical french to have such freedom of expression
- sex element - what a sexy voice and such fantastic command of english
- ping pong element - classic move from ab bab ba to abba
- music element - i may never hear those tracks again but i won't forget them
- fun element - well it made me laugh
Thanks Charlie
