Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, but I wasn't quite sure where I should put it.
I'm just curious at to whether anyone knows if the Lifter Puller book (http://www.bluecollardistro.com/theholdsteady/product_info.php?products_id=3831&error=qty) is limited edition? Basically, its out of stock at the moment and I'm wondering does anyone know if it's gone for good or if it'll be back.
They used to sell it at The Nice Nice before it burned down.
Yeah, it was limited edition. You can still buy the reissues from iTunes, eMusic and Amazon. Their all digital only though, they didn't release anything physical apart from the book. If you can pick it up though, it really is worth it. All the lyrics, tons of photos and quotes from people who grew up in and around the band.
Just to point out, the book comes with all the studio released stuff, but none of the bonus live tracks that have been added onto the reissues.

I concur with the above statement, it is incredible. It's so like Craig to do an Oral History rather than an actual biography of what happened. It's made up of lots of different quotes from various sources that can't remember all the facts or varyingly juxtapose each other. All adds to the mystery I guess.
I laughed so much at your comment mcstevepants. Good work!

I've been looking for this book online for years, but haven't even seen a copy up for sale. Is there anybody who sits on a copy they want to part with? I have a Soft Rock compilation and some Lifter Puller seven inches to sweeten the deal. Or maybe even a vinyl copy of Boys And Girls.
I know this is a shot in the dark, but I had my copies of the book and cds stolen by a close friend shortly after I got them. 2010 was not a good year. Anyway, pretty clear I'll never get those back, and I woke up grinding my teeth about it today, so. I would like to buy, if anyone has any leads.
Edit: Just to clarify, not any leads on the person who stole my copies ten years ago, of course. Just any copies looking for a new, loving home.

Yes, my friend. The fanbase has grown (bittersweet, but they'd sell it easy), times are tough, and it would be a nice way to take the edge off the cancelled tour (which isn't guaranteed next year, either, so I'm staring pretty hard at that 3-ticket charge). If anyone knows who to send emails, I would gladly blaze that trail.
I also remembered that the CDs were burned from the digital download. Even though this didn't need to be said, it felt necessary to the anxiety monster that farts around in my head.
