Notes

This deluxe expanded edition features all the non-album b-sides, the pre-Darklands Some Candy Talking EP, outtakes, the complete BBC Radio Sessions the band recorded in this period, previously unreleased material includes a much sought-after Janice Long session from 1986, an alternate version of the "Some Candy Talking" single recorded for the NME, a recently unearthed version of the track "Darklands" with strings, and a BBC audio interview with Jim and William Reid from 1987.

The DVD features the promo videos for all the singles, a first time on DVD for the band-made film for b-side "Kill Surf City", and previously unreleased archival TV appearances, including their only appearance on Top Of The Pops, alongside performances on Belgian TV and ITV's short-lived TOTP rival The Roxy.

The 32 page booklet contains exclusive new interviews that tell the band's story in their own words including a contribution from ex-member and Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, alongside lyrics, rare memorabilia and previously unpublished photos.

Initial pressings of disc one had a mastering glitch - the track markings were slightly out of place on tracks 8 - 16 so that the beginning of each track starts at the end of the one before. The disc still plays through fine, but you may notice this issue when playing individual tracks from that selection. Demon Music Group issued replacement cds on request.

Comes in quad-fold double Digipak. "In The Rain" is a version of "About You".

I wouldn't normally say this, but how anyone could give this anything less than 5 stars is completely beyond me.
