The Sleazy vocal of "Tainted Love" is sort of hilariously off-rhythm in a way that doesn't work. I enjoy it anyway.

I tried ordering 4 of the 8 TA releases from the seller MovieMars who had them listed at their original retail prices on Feb. 7 when user 15rob20 gave notice of their availability and over a week later they still haven't shipped, with my question to them regarding the order status being answered that they are "trying to locate the items". Don't think they really had them in stock, seemed too good to be true I guess.

Heads up! Want a copy of this without paying scalpers' prices? Right now there are a few copies of this and the other Threshold Archives releases on Amazon (UK/DE) for 8.18 pounds/9.26 euro. You'd beter be fast! You're welcome!

So sad that these went out of print immediately. I thought the point was to get the music to those who want to hear it, now it's all marked-up profits for resellers. Typical. I ended up buying "The Snow" and "Angelic Conversations" used for double the original new selling price, then reselling them for the same amount I spent on them just so I could have digital copies of the tracks. Honestly, most of us just want to hear the damn music.
