I used to play along to it with my guitar, and from memory, everything seemed to be in tune except This Is England. Varispeeding always changed the pitch of the song back then.
Seriously mate I'm telling you the whole thing is sped up. Three Card Trick sounds awesome at the correct speed and Joe's vocals are some of his best ever.
Hello,

Marry, I always appreciate your postings and realize it take a ton of time .... but could you post a couple of tracks at the correct speed?
Hopefully this will work.

Hello Marky,

Thanks! Although it's only a few seconds added to each song, I can hear/feel a difference in Are You Red..Y and Three Card Trick (not as much in North & South). Joe doesn't sound as frantic (frantic in a bad way). The guitars in the beginning of Are You Red...Y are a bit different as well.
Well I remixed the tracks as well as the speed adjustment. I think everything on CtC was back speeded. Joe sounds more natural and the songs get a little bit of breathing space.

Am I going mad or was there a youtuber who put up a load of LC tracks with vocals/bass/guitar/drums isolated? Can't seem to find them.

Yeah I have all of the LC stems. So I'm sure they are on YT.

They got deleted.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Thanks for the upload Marky. You're correct, this sounds much more natural pitch-wise.

I'm reworking the whole album b-sides etc (again). I'll get it posted up when finished.

Per usual, thanks for going above and beyond. Can’t wait to hear the results.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

This is pretty cool, I didn't even know this early footage was available outside of short cuts in Westway and other docs:

Will have to give that another watch. Saw it when it aired but already forgotten most of it.

I think this is a fan edit but it's really well done and I don't think I've seen it before...

Nice one. I think it's actually better than the official vid.
