Amazon has just put this collection in my cloud library and it seems that a number of the classic, Polygram era tracks have been re-recorded by the new line-up & labelled as 'Main Version".

The tracks in question are:

- Fade To Grey
- Mind Of A Toy
- The Anvil
- Night Train
- Damned Don't Cry
- Pleasure Boys

Almost without exception these re-recordings are pretty awful - barely more than demos it seems to me. My recommendation? Avoid or buy with caution....

I'll add an addendum to this: the download from Amazon has these new versions. The actual CD has just arrived and it has the original versions. Jolly confused.

Yes I saw that - my point is more "why?" Why restrict one version to CD & the other to DL? Wouldn't there be people that would want to DL the originals & some people that would want the new versions on CD?

presumably they where only given/bought the rights for CD release of the original recordings
