Q. Hey, dear Oracle!
What's first? Ode to Deodorant or Safety EP? I'm confused, please reply!
Greetings from all the members of the League of Latinamerican's Coldplayers!
Q. Is it true that the Safety EP goes for £2000 because only 500 copies were ever made?
Maybe you have the answer, Oracle?
Q. Dear Oracle, a couple of questions which will test your Coldplay knowledge.
Firstly, Ron Niblett (who produced the Safety EP) said there were 8 tracks recorded for the EP and they picked 3. What were the other 5? Did they get lost or did they go onto The Blue Room/Parachutes?
Secondly, on the Timeline there is a video relating to Coldplay/Starfish's first gig at The Laurel Tree. In the video there is a song playing with lyrics "there goes another day...", do they have a lot of unreleased old songs recorded and is there any way of getting them/could you envisage them ever being released somehow?
Q. I was looking online to see if I could buy the Saftey EP and I was shocked to find that it is about £1000 - £3000 I was just wondering why it is so expensive? Is it because it is now an antique item and because they have stopped making the CD's? Thanks!!
Q. Q. Hello Oracle!
Why is the Safety - EP called Safety? There is no song on it that's called Safety.
Q. Why did Coldplay name the Safety E.P. as they did?
Q. Dear Oracle, does it exist a vinyl edition of the Safety EP?
Q. I have a rare copy of Coldplay's Safety ep. What makes it even rarer is it comes enclosed with a signed letter to Jo Whiley begging her to play the CD - then a demo of sorts - on her radio show. I read a couple of years ago that the Safety ep could make around £2,000 and wondered if you had any idea how much my copy, complete with letter, would be worth? Am open to offers - even from Chris and co if they want to retrieve their letter for old time's sake!
Q. Who is the man on the cover of Safety EP?
Q. Dear wise one,
Firece Panda Records Re-released Brothers and Sisters due to its extreme limited first run production. Are there any plans to do the same for the Safety ep? I think I speak for many Coldplay fans whose CD collections are incomplete without it. I understand that the original recordings can be found on other CD singles but it's nice to have the CD itself with album art. If there are no plans I think it would be a great idea....Just a thought. Please let me know what you think. If you can post this I would like everyone to know, if you have an original copy of the Safety ep....name your price. Thank you!
Q. Hi Oracle.
Some of the early songs appear on two releases (singles, albums, EPs)
I was just wondering which of the following are actually new versions and which ones were just re-released:
Bigger Stronger (Safety EP/Blue Room EP);
Such a Rush (Safety EP/Blue Room EP);
No More Keeping My Feet on the Ground (Safety EP/Yellow single);
Don't Panic (Blue Room EP/Parachutes);
High Speed (Blue Room EP/Parachutes).
I think the Brothers & Sisters track from Brother's & Sisters is different from the Trouble single, judging by the intro.
I hope this isn't too much work for ya, but I'm sure I'm not the only Coldplay fan to wonder this.
Thanks a million.
Q. Dear wise one, I have asked several questions that have yet to be answered. I will ask this one for a second time. I have a very large Coldplay CD collection however, there is 1 CD I need before my collection can be complete. It is the Safety ep.
Would it be too much to ask the band if they could send me a copy? I am only the biggest Coldplay fan in the US Army. I even missed the last show in my home town due to my last deployment in Afghanistan. Would it be too much to ask for that in return for my sacrifices? Please reply. Thank you!
