Rarity of the Month (temporarily closed)

[Apologies, but this forum feature is currently inactive. Meanwhile, you can still download the February 2014's rarity below.]

Info on the poll:
This poll is meant for the fans who are eager to get hold of official tracks that are extremely difficult, if impossible, to find online. The winning track gets posted (usually as 320kbps MP3) right here at the beginning of every month. Only registered forum members can vote, once per month. If your song doesn't win, maybe you're lucky next time; this present song selection remains in the next poll (with an addition of one new song). I wish you good luck!

Sorry to hear that the old forum is down- but glad you're still here!

At the moment it looks like you're the only one keen on hearing that one. :P Seriously, I'd vote for it myself if I didn't already have it - the track's definitely a flagship of the poll along with "The Wassailing Song".

The one included in the poll is from the official CD-R promo release, so it's not a fan-made rip (if that makes any difference to anybody).

Glad you like the poll!

Is there any chance the Andy Partridge Session version of "Coping" will make an appearance on the poll? I'd bet that sounds awesome... :)

Sorry, the Partridge session tracks have never seen the daylight among us, ordinary fans. But of course they're still somewhere in the archives; the editor of Blur Fan Club magazine once listened to them (for their "Blur Vaults" feature) and said the tracks are sounding great with "Coping" being more subtle / less aggressive.

At the moment I don't plan to share the tracks in FLAC. Sorry.

Hey Veikko, what's this "Let the sunshine in" from a place for grief? Have never heard of it.

Although I'm not 100% sure, the sample is from the 1930's British comedy Letting in the Sunshine. Gotta seek and watch that film someday to confirm. :)
