The Light - Contrasting Strangers 7" / 12" (1985 / 1986)

This amazing record (as is seems now) will probably never be available on any kind of format, except for the original 7" & 12" versions on vinyl.

If there is somebody out there who has the ability to upload a FLAC version of either of these, it would sure be much appreciated. :)
Even a 320kbps would be nice, since there are absolutely no good quality versions anywhere to be found.

I 2nd that request Xymox970!! I have a few different versions, but nothing better than 192K, and the sound is quite horrible. Would love to see both of their singles re-released/remastered one day.

Well, I am really glad to get the chance to fill my own request. :)
It has certainly been worth the wait all these years.

Special thanks goes to Pete - the man behind 80s Forever Radio (http://www.80sforever.ch/80s-forever-radio/)

Enjoy !

I dont think that the complete singles have been available in 320kbps thusfar...well, certainly not the b-sides and as far as I remember - the extended versions neither.

So please upload if you can.... :)

Ok, here's my Box of Toys/The Light library, I think it's their entire discography plus their Peel Session songs and a couple of demos. The only thing missing is a Brian Atherton track from this compilation http://www.discogs.com/Various-DangerWa ... se/3448109

Excellent share ! :D

Finally the complete collection in excellent quality. :)

This is the first time I`ve heard "Something Special Gone" and its really an understatement to say that the track had an amazing potential....

Agreed, it deserved to be a single!

Thanks a lot for these pearls.

Old Man Rome is a favourite of mine, and it sounds brilliant.
