NOTES:

Postcards From the Future is a CD compilation offering a simple introduction to Be Bop Deluxe.  At the time collectors were drawn to it by the inclusion of both sides of the debut single "Teenage Archangel" and "Jets at Dawn", which had not previously appeared on CD, and had been out of print since circa 1980.  The set was enhanced by a nicely illustrated booklet with a sleeve notes written by Nelson.


PAST RELEASES:

 

16 of the 18 tracks on this compilation album were taken from the six albums released in the band's lifetime issued between 1974 and 1978.  See individual entries of those albums for full details including vinyl editions of the same material. "Teenage Archangel" and "Jets At Dawn" was issued on 7" in 1973, and had yet to appear on a Be Bop Deluxe retrospective.

CURRENT AVAILABILITY:
 

This compilation is now out of print.
