I am looking forward to a sound quality review by those of you with super ears and measuring equipment. Thanks.

I got the single cd, which sounds just like the 2003 remaster but slightly louder.

CD 2 track 13 "All Tomorrows Parties (John Punter 7" Mix 1979)" is it previously unreleased?
Or is it the same as on ASSEMBLAGE? The duration is similar.
(I never trust the people who get paid to compile boxed like these, to use the word "mix" correctly)

It is indeed the same version as first released on ‘Assemblage’ in 1981 and not a new one.

While we are at it;
  • ‘Life In Tokyo’ ('Assemblage' 7" Remix 1981)
    Turns out that this is the same mix that first appeared in 1989 on the 'Souvenir From Japan’ compilation CD/cassette.
  • ‘Life In Tokyo’ ('Assemblage' 12” Remix 1981)
    This is the version that first appeared as the opening track of side 2 on the 1982 'Special Edition Double Play' cassette version of ‘Assemblage’. The good news is that the master used is in full stereo, unlike some of the occasions it has featured on previous compilations where it was in a form of mono instead. The not so good news... it is once again a few seconds shorter in the fade out compared to the original. More details on all that here: http://www.versioncrazy.com/2021/02/14/a-tourists-guide-to-life-in-tokyo-part-2/

Live at Budokan 27/03/1980 tracks are a strange addition and in my opinion could have been substituted for something much better... why shove an not so great audience recording where the screaming is louder than the singing is beyond me

The Japanese 7" of Quiet Life on here is previously unreleased. It's different to the other edits.
