I believe it was only re-issued for ITunes and the only physical copy is the original one from 1996. Not sure it ever needed to be remastered as the sound quality from 1996 is superb. Don't know if anyone purchased the ITunes version and gave an opinion on the difference?

That's my understanding - that is was iTunes only. Didn't ever download though so couldn't comment on the quality.

^ Yes! I would love to have those on vinyl. They'd be perfect to release on RSD.

It's always looks that these two albums are a bit the "lost" albums of Blur. It's very hard to get them and the import is very expensive. A lot of CD shops (beside from Amazon) have these albums not in stock. So an international new version for a good price would be good. I think versions like the "Blur 21" CDs with bonus material are hard to realize. But maybe they will get the idea to realese remastered live material like the 1997 Japan shows or the b-sides gig.

Well, in Germany are the conditions a bit complicated. A lot of retrailers can not be used or the money transfer is hard. The shipping is sometimes also very expensive. So a new version of "Live at the Budokan" have actually the price of 70 Euro, or over £75 or more. The big media stores have these CDs also not in stock and even independent stores can only order CDs for a high price.
