Latest about Weller at the Beeb by Andy! Support reflex!

The latest info is that the limited Edition print will only be with copies of the Vinyl or DVD format, but as most of you will be ordering one or both of these it shouldn't be a problem.

Second note is that I have been tipped off that the 4CD Edition will be as Limited (or more so) than the 22 Dreams Deluxe Edition so please get your orders in so that I may order a crazy amount with the supplier in case I get cut back. (To cut to the chase, if I order 250 and get 'cut back' I will recieve 150 etc)
So without further ado here are the details Anyone with new credit card details of change of address please send that also, link at bottom. Cheers to everyone for waiting and for your tremendous loyalty to me and Reflex.

After a fantastic 50th year with the awesome 22 Dreams, Paul Weller tops the year off with a superb set of BBC Recordings from his solo career. This mammoth set shows his progress and sheer brilliance through live shows, studio radio sessions and TV appearances. Available across four great formats, this is the man in his element.

First of all, there is a 4CD hardback book mega-Limited Edition - be aware this is going to be as limited as the 22 Dreams Book Set, so get in early with pre-orders. 74 tracks across the four discs and a 64-page book make this a must-have piece.

o "Weller at the BBC" is a stunning, 74-track, all-digitally remastered, 4-CD hard-back book set of exclusive BBC sessions and live concert tracks from 1990-2008, fully sanctioned by Weller and including his introduction to the liner notes.

o Includes alternative versions of 19 classic hit singles - Hung Up, Out Of The Sinking, Wild Wood, The Changing Man, You Do Something To Me, Uh Huh Oh Yeh, Peacock Suit, Brushed, Brand New Start, Wishing On A Star, Thinking Of You, Come On / Let's Go, Above The Clouds, Sunflower, Broken Stones, Speak Like A Child, My Ever Changing Moods, All I Wanna Do (Is Be With You) and That's Entertainment.

o Discs One and Two feature key session tracks from 1992-2008. Includes 40 unreleased versions, many with interview snippets and Paul's song introductions. Many of these sessions are showcasing material from new or forthcoming albums and are presented in band versions as well as solo, acoustic settings.

o There are some rare gems within these sessions including an exhilarating rendition of Ronnie Lane's 1974 single The Poacher from 1997. From 2006 are highlights of Radio 2's Sold On Song where Paul, armed with acoustic guitar, provided a fascinating song-writing tutorial as he explained the
process behind Amongst Butterflies, Frightened and That's Entertainment, amongst others.

o From July this year are stunning interpretations of All I Wanna Do (Is Be With You), Cold Moments and Push It Along from the recent critically-acclaimed, no. 1 album 22 Dreams.

o Discs Three and Four feature 34 of the best live concert tracks from six BBC-recorded shows during 1990-1998, including an early solo gig at the Town and Country Club from December 1990 with previously-unreleased tracks
Just Like Yesterday (a Weller original) and The Isley Brothers' Work To Do. Another unreleased song is Marvin Gaye's classic What's Going On from Royal Albert Hall October 1992.

o Also featured is the triumphant July 1995 headlining performance at the Phoenix Festival where he performs dazzling versions of live favourites Porcelain Gods, Stanley Road, Can You Heal Us (Holy Man) & Shadow Of The Sun.

o Includes a 64-page booklet with extensive new sleeve notes, brand new interviews with Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Bobby Gillespie, Tim Burgess, Steve White and others. The booklet features scores of rare and unseen photos from the Lawrence Watson archive.

A 2CD 'highlights' version will also be available, and a stunning DVD set will incorporate the best of Paul's TV slots on Later & The Electric Proms, as well as some classic TOTP appearances, plus extras.

Finally, a mega-limited 3LP vinyl set will also be available, featuring two BBC 'Live In Concert' sets and the Radio 2 documentary, Sold On Song.

Altogether a stellar release and a must-have for all Weller fans. Cover shot on the Reflex website at
