What's the Deal with the Amazon "Exclusive" CD-R issue of Phil Collins' Going Back?

Many people have noticed that Amazon in the U.S.A. is offering an "exclusive" edition of Phil Collins' new album, Going Back. Here's the scoop: It is a CD-R pressing (not a pressed CD) of the 25-track version of the album. The track listing will allegedly be identical to the 25-track pressed Japanese CD and the expanded 25-track version of the album on the imported CD+DVD set. Now, your not getting the DVD content that you would have gotten with the CD+DVD version, but its also presently the cheapest way to get the 25-track version of the album (if you don't mind a professionally issued CD-R copy instead of a pressed aluminum CD).

Update on Ray Wilson's Forthcoming Album

World of recently had a chance to catch up with Ray Wilson about this activities in the studio. Ray tells us that his next album should be out around September of next year. Wilson is currently writing and refining many of the songs that will be featured on the project. Ray describes the album as "more of a Stiltskin CD this time," so it sounds like he's going for that harder rock sound exemplified on Stiltskin's last studio album, She (which is a highly recommended album, by the way!). Hopefully, we'll hear more about this new album from Ray in the coming months. For more general information on his career or for tour dates on Ray Wilson, check out his official site.
