This is the one to grab. The original mini LP will just leave you wanting more. This has another full record of most of their stuff. Too bad they didn't ad more tracks to the latest reissue, and fill that album out more. Best bang for your buck here. Pressing sounds superb. One of my top 10 80's records.

can anyone remark on the sporadic static bursts on the 'frantz' track? were they intentional, or recording errors?

For me this second CD of live recordings is the definitive one, in my opinion. The tracks are rawer, less polished and somehow edgier and a lot more 'honest' than the studio recordings. I just wish these recordings were not so limited and got reissued on vinyl too.

A truly amazing mixture of Mancini-esque jazzy energy, Jobim and the omnipresent Kraftwerkian coldness, fitting into post-punk just perfect - further blending Marine Girls' established lazy calm and announcing the trend of groups like Matt Bianco, Everything But the Girl or Swing Out Sister, Antena produced a funny, amusing electro-samba cocktail - equally naive and just as damn well creepy.

To start with the most obvious, just check both - the audio and the hillarious video for 'The Boy From Ipanema' and there'll be goosebumps - amazing what can be done with a single line from the original song, transformed into a repetitive yet irresistibly dynamic cover, which makes it a standard all of its own. Perverted by a vodocer, adding 'insult to injury' to the very title (Antena's version is supposed to be a reference to a transvestite), 'The Boy From Ipanema' is a spooky rendition as if made by aliens, accidentally stuck on the Brazillian shore due to a rocket crash, and while awaiting their technical recovery, the trio discovers the charm and immediately falls in love with the exotic, newly found environment.

Of course, many would refer to this - a deserved favourite by the group - as their sole success (most notably for the fact, John Foxx and Gareth Jones assisted the trio with production duties), but gems like 'Bye Bye Papaye', 'Seaside Weekend' (pretty inspiring for a certain Basia Trzstrzselewska, and a little later reconstructed by Isabelle Powaga herself), 'Noelle a Hawaii', the adorable 'Les Demoiselles De Rochefort', the title song ('Camino del Sol'), 'Achilles', 'Frantz' and especially additional pieces like 'Joppo & Eno' or 'On the Boat' all present a stunning scream for listeners' attention.

Listening to Antena, one is also impossible to shake off the impression this is Stereolab years too early. The voices are very smooth, seducing and erotic in all their naive charm and make this whole collection even more desirable (and highly recommended). Thank you LTM. This is bliss.

The Numero vinyl edition is really worth seeking out - Nice repros, hard-card double sleeve with all 3 original members sporting inquisitive expressions but, above all, top quality electro-bossa-pop. Sides C and D gather up several rarities, including the superior "To Climb The Cliff" and "Noelle A Hawaii".....great work (even down to the spyrograph label design homage)

Balearic downbeat gear here from French artistes Antena. Popularised by the Todd Terje mix of ‘Camino Del Sol’ in 2007, Antena are favourites on the majority of Balearic compilations, and this album provides Ibiza-style beach gear perfect for sitting outside Café Del Mar watching the sun go down or on Talamanca beach with some Hierbas De Ibiza. Originally released in 1982, and containing just 6 tracks, this is the second CD re-issue. Track 12 to 14 are newly added bonus tracks.
