Really, really do want to get myself a copy of Silver Box. It is a great insight into the band. Some of the demos are not in the best condition, audio-wise, but they are still fabulous none the less. And some songs end up quite different. Jim certainly liked to play around with lyrics! Twist/Run/Repulsion for example has a completely different lyric (although the background French speaking is still the same).

I’ve looked into getting a copy but the ones I’ve seen so far on eBay tend to go for silly money (around £100!). Maybe one day…as a special treat for myself it might be possible.
