I’ve been a fan of the band since their very first release back in the late 70’s, not played them so much lately but then I stumbled across the bonus disc “Acoustic Hits” and I have to say I absolutely love these pared-down versions chosen by Rob Smith. The quality of the recording is also very precise and warm, why didn’t I listen to this sooner!
