I don't understand: the Polydor years for the band means the whole 80's, so where are the other albums (plus their bonus tracks) from that era ?! (A Physical Presence, World Machine, Running In The Family & Staring At The Sun). They had to be included!

Let's just brace ourselves for the blunders, wrong versions, bad vinyl rips and replacement discs too. Ouch did i say that?

.....and I have just bought the "5 Classic Albums" collection (which is missing Standing In The Light) + Standing In The Light (2CD Expanded Edition)
to complete the set.

Great timing. :D

I have absolutely everything on this except those 7 inch versions which i'm not interested in. It will be interesting on the second volume if they include everyone of those mixes from the singles from Running In The Family which hasn't been done before. Knowing Cherry Red they will use vinyl rips.

Indeed it's a pity they don't come up with the message that all is taken from masters.

From what I always knew is that 1 extended version was never released on CD (Weave
Your Spell) and that another extended version from that era (Are You Hearing (What I
Hear)) was used for a CD release before, but wasn't taken from master tapes. This was always a
bad vinyl rip.

Even on this release:

*** UPDATE 09-01-2021***
The release of the boxset is postponed with 1 month and will be released on March 26th 2021.
