He's not wrong. It is a thing of beauty and wonderment.
Yes; you really need to get a copy of this while you still can!
Listening to disc 3 has been interesting:Banal
Living In My Limousine
The Real Adventure
I haven't been listening to pieces from this period in quite some time; years in fact.
Hearing them again took me right back to the day when they first came out. These really were consummate electro-pop wonders. Great stuff.
Speaking of electro-pop I'm still surprised that Do You Dream in Colour?
was not a massive hit of some sort. It's just that classic.
One observation (and I hope it isn't taken as a criticism) the Be Bop Deluxe additions don't seem to have the same aural sparkle in the mastering that other selections in this set have. They seem a bit "flat" by comparison to the solo works. I'm sure the mastering/remastering for this collection has been discussed elsewhere in the forums.
But it's all good really (and I do have all the BBD works on CD and vinyl) ......
Some time I will get around to sitting down with the wonderful book that comes with this package and read it properly instead of just looking at the pictures.
