Track 11 and 12 on CD 1 were already included on the 2010 Cherry Pop version of the album.
So they were not 'previously unreleased on CD' (*) as the info says.

Overall a good collection and I will pick this up too!

I always thought that this band were for teenagers who couldn't grasp Swing Out Sister. I'll pass. But it is nice that someone cares enough to presumably do it right. Sinclair's It's Immaterial DLX RM of "Life's Hard + Then You Die" was best-of-breed stuff!

I always thought CKTC were very cool. They were one of the best sophisti-pop bands of the 80s.

It's only £19 on Amazon UK £6 cheaper than the Super Deluxe Edition website not signed of course but even the unsigned version is still £25 on there. I left a message there but it wasn't published which is unusual as he is normally falling over himself with Amazon links.

This was explained by Paul Sinclair (owner of the SuperDeluxeEdition website) in one of the comments:

Is the Scratch Mix of Misfit in there under a different title?

Unfortunately, that was the one that got away. Couldn’t find a tape of it anywhere. It’s actually a rather horrible remix (quite amateurish in places), so didn’t want to break the no vinyl rip rule just for that :)
