The fact that there's no 12' singles has just lost my vote in getting this. This would've been a perfect opportunity to have 1 CD at least with all those crucial extended mixes.

Cherry Red are reissuing his entire back catalogue so the 12' singles will appear probably on expanded versions of his albums.

If that's the case then i hope they use his remasters from a few years ago, which were excellent. I have the boxsets which i got directly from his own website.

Sound was good, but the remix CD's were botched by D-Tox (wrong track index, songs were cut off wrongly).
If you rip the remix CD's and listen to them then you know what I mean.

Human's Lib was the same though i don't think anybody noticed that at the time as all the discussion was about the remix CD.

It remains to be seen then how Cherry Red presents these reissues. Any glitches then should be corrected. I'm assuming they'll do 2cd versions with HJ supervising.

I thought the remasters sounded quite harsh. The original are fine if you remove the pre emphasis.

CD1 is good. Not a huge fan of his later stuff and CD2 is missing Tomorrow is now.
Thirtysomething New Wave fan. I've got that Golden Feeling.

Having recently bought this, I am quite pleased with the tracklist. Although there are a few tracks missing, it is still a great overview of his career. He worked with them to compile this set, so I am guessing that they are using his remasters as their source. I hope he tours Australia again soon!!!!

When I first saw this listed, I pretty much thought that what turned out to be on CD1 covered it. "Best 1983-2017", and all his best stuff was in the 80s :mrgreen: .

Glad to hear that his albums are getting a reissue, since I didn't get the DTOX sets.
