It's an unbeatably fantastic Almond album. My favorite of his as I loved the Scott Walker vibe he was going for. Since I have the "Treasure Box" compilation, there's very little here I need, so I'll be sitting this out, but anyone without "Treasure Box" would do well to buy this one! It's interesting that the Gent Pitney duet version of "Something's Gotten Ahold Of My Heart" now displaces the album version [without Pitney] and the Marc only version is relegated to disc 2. As an American with the original CD, I've never heard the hit Pitney duet version of the song, which is a bit af a shame, since Pitney was a fantastic singer and I can imagine it being truly great.

:D A superb album, glad to see it getting the deluxe treatment, although the DVD is very short on content.

Excited about this release.

Bummer re PAL DVD format which I am only able to view on my PC.

Press release states that it includes all available remixes but appears to omit the Just Rite Edit and Acid Tears Dub mixes of 'Tears Run Rings' from the U.S. 12". Not uncommon for reissues to exclude US-only mixes. Love that song.

The Only The Moment 12" versions included here are the real treasure.

The A-side mix is great, but the Blue Mosque 10 minute Mix Of She Took My Soul In Istanbul is simply sensational.

BTW.....that reminds me......its high time a proper multi-disc compilation of Marcs 12" material was released.

10:16 Megamillionmania - Multimaniamix (1983)
17:28 version of Split Lip (1984)

just for a start.....

and then 12" versions of Black Heart, Joey Demento, PInk Shack Blues, Tenderness Is A Weakness, You Have, The Boy Who Came Back, Your Aura, This House Is A House Of Trouble, Stories Of Johnny, Love Letter.....

Justin Strauss has some of his remixes posted on SoundCloud for free download including the 'Tears Run Rings' Acid Tears Dub which is not on this reissue.
