Further reissues from Rubellan in the US. The Singles Collection on vinyl with the two 1984 singles tacked on, not on the original release. I wanted to order this, but the shipping cost more than the record so no deal.

I think this is probably one of Scott Davies' 'misses' as far as his mastering & the quality of the pressing is concerned. Mucho surface noise, mushy-sounding in places and generally does not compare to some of his previous work.

Plus he is extremely defensive when it comes to even the mildest criticism - and sometimes not even criticism, purely a factual comment, can get a somewhat snotty response.

Thanks for your insight, Alone With Strangers.

And it is interesting that you mention how defensive Scott is. Indeed, there seems to be an issue when it comes to interaction with potentials and customers.

For everyone who is looking for the vinyl, you could try JPC in Germany

Thanks for the review Alone With Strangers. Better off getting the original release then.

True, but I'll live without those 2 tracks. Was never keen on the 3rd album anyway, just thought it could be nice to have the singles at least. But not at any price, so not losing sleep over it. smile
