I was looking to order the Return to Eden DVD only on Amazon when I came across these:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ultravox-Members...0352&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.co.uk/John-Foxx-Albums...3978&sr=1-3

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ultravox-Albums-...0352&sr=1-2

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ultravox-Songs-D...0352&sr=1-5

There is no more info on them on Amazon so I was wondering if anyone had bought them or knows what they are. They are listed in ISBN catalogues but other sites that advertise these do not have any other info.

almost certainly part of "vanity publishing" where anyone can put a few words ( they are all very few pages ) cobbled together from wikipedia and other sources , and call it a book

have a look at

infact if you compare the first extract to Billies wikipedia page

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Currie

they are identical

and the extract from the 2nd "book" is identical to wikipedia pages

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Stood_Still
