ABC " Essential" 3CD


ABC " Essential" 3CD

Postby omar » Fri Sep 11, 2020 10:27 pm

15. Storey Halo


Disc 2

It looks like it will remain so.

Again the chance to release a comprehensive singles collection 1981-89 is ignored. There's too many ABC cds out there with the same album versions for many of the songs. The following should've been included:

1. Tears Are Not Enough (Original 7")
2. How To Be A Millionaire (UK 7")
3. Ocean Blue (Pacific Mix)
4. When Smokey Sings (7")
5. The Night You Murdered Love (Radio Edit)
6. King Without A Crown (7" Mix)
7. The Real Thing (7" Mix)

With as many remixes as haven't been on CD yet, honestly not sure why you'd basically just duplicate existing compilations.

The only reason to buy this will be if it's cheap and you've only been an ABC fan for a year. Disappointing.

There's nothing disappointing about this.

It's a budget release, as part of 40 titles on this catalog.
They've done human league, big country, level 42, and a lot more.

All are budget releases. Probably just easy to get license.

There is no need to get new tracks or unreleased tracks,
because there is no interest, and that would raise the price.

If bands want to put out new compilations, they will go
super deluxe or boxsets, or anniversary releases, which
is not the case here.

It would have been nice to have the Wall Street Mix of Zillionaire rather than Bond Street *again*.

The Wall Street Mix was on the Remix Collection CD even though they mis-titled it as the Bond Street Mix.
