Interesting. I got that email. The new 2xCD has far fewer remixes than the 2013 German Repertoire CD I have of that title - a large, though not complete nine remixes and edits. It may have better remastering, though. I like that the Peter Cook tracks are there, but still missing is "Beat The Clock [alternative mix] - 3:32" the B-side to VS 720. As usual, a missed opportunity.

I have the Repertoire cd as well that was ruined by the crappy remastering. This new reissue is officially endorsed by the band and should hopefully sound better.

Could be me, but I miss the 2nd CD (?!) Where's the rest of the tracklist?!

For a 40th anniversary of this album, this is somewhat thin and lame to release isn't it ...
At least, make it something definitive and include all single versions (YES: that includes the alternative mix of BTC) and tracks that were already available on the Repertoire release (which had 7 instead of 9 bonus tracks: there were 2 'doubles' on that one).
