New Releases: Happy Mondays

Good lord, it feels as if every day there seems to be a new Happy Mondays release at the moment! Firstly they did a new CD+DVD combo of their 2004 concert from Barcelona (which isn't the original lineup), then the obligatory greatest hits (featuring new liner notes by Shaun Ryder and the previously rare track and debut single Delightful, which isn't available anywhere else). Recently, its just been announced that there's also the arrival of two (no, that isn't a mistake!) live albums also. One of which is a pretty old concert from 1990 in New York, and the other is a release of one of their recent reunion gigs, from Brixton Academy in England to be exact. I'm excited for these new releases (particularly the new greatest hits for the rare track and the Brixton live CD as so far I've been impressed with how they're sounding since the reunion). I just hope that Happy Mondays are planning to remaster + re release their studio albums hopefully with the inclusion of some rarities, as Bummed and Pills And Thrill's and Bellyaches deluxe editions that were released a few years ago have become hard to find in the UK for whatever reason!
