Public Image Ltd. – Commercial Zone
When someone leaves a band over ‘creative differences’ the fans usually don’t get to find out why, but that wasn’t the case with Keith Levene and PiL. When he quit the band he took what they recorded with him. So when John Lydon and the rest of the band re-recorded much of it and released it as This Is What You Want…This Is What You Get he went ahead and put out his version of it, and called it Commercial Zone. It’s technically a bootleg and much of it has never been available to the general public. It’s pretty barren compared to This Is What You Want… and in my opinion not as good, but judge for yourself. It does feature some songs that have never been released in any form by PiL, so it’s essential for the die-hard fans. The file above is a zip that contains the entire album.

I’ve already discussed The Timelords/KLF in depth and I really don’t want to again. If you’re really interested Wikipedia has a page on them describing the insanity in full. When I first posted about them I couldn’t find a copy of Doctorin’ The Timelords so I had to settle with the video. Well, since then I’ve managed to track down the 12′ single of the song, which also featured two additional mixes of the Dr. Who/Gary Glitter mash-up. Enjoy.

    Thank you so much for Commercial Zone. I’ve always wondered how it compared to This is What You Want.
