The drums at the start of "Tears" have some kind of glitch just before the rest of the instruments come in. I hear this glitch on CD reissues as well as the UK LP. (In the US LP Side Kicks, the drums are glitch-free.)

The drums at the start of "Tears" are fixed in Side Kicks. (The version in Quick Step... has some kind of glitch just before the rest of the instruments come in. I hear the glitch in CD reissues as well.)

"Side Kicks" is a super record on it's own, a few hits, but also a solid record overall - song by song. In addition to the pretty great Side Kicks record, this cassette includes 6 bonus tracks, remixes and extended versions on the normal album. Not normally available on CD or other media, these B side tracks are great pieces of Thompson Twins work, really well done stuff. Rap Boy Rap is a mix of Lies, Love Lies Fierce is a mix of Love on Your Side, etc.

What an incredible quality re-release.
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 still sounds excellent even by todays standards.
This excellent set also includes for the very first time the 'Special Cassette Remixes' and a further eleven 12" mixes and B-sides.
This album is a testament to just how important the Thompson Twins were to the 80`s sound and style of that 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.
