"Deluxe 2 CD Edition"

Initial pressings have mastering errors on disc two. During August or September 2008, copies were recalled and replaced with a corrected version. Both look identical and carry the same catalogue number. However, one simple way of knowing which version you have is to check the matrix number on the centre of the playing surface. The original pressing carries a "01", whilst corrected pressings have a "02" printed.

You can also check track 2-03, You Take Me Up. The corrected version has two seconds of silence before the song starts. On the original, the song starts immediately. Both versions have identical timings of 7:24.

Can anyone else hear an audio glitch during 2-10 (Out Of The Gap (Megamix Extended Version))? My CD player doesn't display time/duration so I can't give you the exact point, sorry.

Is it a source issue, or one of the mastering errors mentioned in the notes?

Just want to let you know that 12" mix of "You Take Me Up" Track 3 on Disc Two is VINYL rip, you can tell around 1:31, you can hear vinyl cracks and pops badly. I only bought this deluxe cd to get those Doctor Doctor and Hold Me Now mixes. I don't like when CD reissues are bundled with extra mixes and some are from vinyl rips. I can do that myself and better rips.

What an incredible quality re-release of this classic album from 1984.
First there's the package itself,the booklet folds out into an impressive sheet packed with pictures of the band and the original sleeves for the various vinyl,cassette & picture disc editions of the singles.
Next we have the album itself,which sounds excellent even by todays standards.
This excellent set also includes for the very first time the 'Special Cassette Remixes' and a further seven 12" mixes plus B-sides.
This album is a testament to just how important the Thompson Twins were to the 80`s sound and style of the time.
The quality of this reissue sets new high standards,lets hope they are followed through to other releases which come under the same title of `Reissue Albums`of the future.
