Sensitive, limp-wristed, Northern soul with a cracking music collection. A flair for melodrama, practising the art of selflove and with a wicked tongue, The Divine Church Of Anfunny will heal you all, presently, via the medium of his music collection - broadcasting 24x7 from the heart of glamourous Gateshead. Contents may settle. Not suitable for children under the age of 3 due to small parts. Wash dark colours seperately. Keep refrigerated and consume within 3 days of opening. Batteries not included.

So it's probably going to take me FOREVER to get my whole collection up on here! At time of writing, this is just a miniscule record of some of the stuff currently overspilling from my home... I've easily amassed over 40,000 CDs! Plus, I've a little vinyl left (after a clearout a few years back).

Also, if you contact me to ask if I'm selling something and I don't reply, it means I'm not!

Kissy, kissy

This is exactly the same version released in 2014 on the 'BBC Radio 2 Sounds Of The 80s' compilation. It's a shame a different cover version from the many Sophie performed over the summer wasn't included on the album instead.

I haven't actually tried, but I got a WAV download of the full thing as a back up anyway... and in the meantime, another 2CD set from Warners has the same issue (and I'm now on a different external CD drive, so it can't be the players surely!). This... See full review

It's not perfect - it's completely missing a B-side ('Let's Free South Africa In 90' - of which there are two versions, a 7" and 12" edit, the later of which came out on CD), plus tracks 2-10 and 2-11 are from vinyl, but they appeared on a CD in 1990... See full review

Track 6 is a unique early version, which sounds like it chronologically belongs between the debut 7" picture disc version ('Lipstick, Cigarettes, Packet Of Three', also on the Melody Maker CD) and the version released as a single by V2 Records.

I think the point of the 'mixed' 2nd CD version was to present the remixes in a new way, given all but one were previously issued on CD unmixed already. I like the remix album in this format, it works really well. Also, dance mix albums were generally... See full review

Whilst it may well be that it (and all her recordings) were pitched up from the original tapes for vinyl, the “original speed” isn’t what people bought at the time. Ergo, a reissue should honour the record as was released, or at least offer an alternative. See full review

Cheers for the feedback! Since I posted this, I've actually changed to a new external CD drive and laptop set-up, so I'm planning on revisiting any discs I've had issues with to see if they persist on the new player. Fingers crossed!

Track 9 here is the original 1982 7" version (3:50), which was subsequently replaced by a remix (4:12) when the parent album, 'Music Of Quality And Distinction (Volume One)' was released on CD for the first time in 1991, and then again as part of the... See full review

Not a bad album at all, and stand outs for me are 'Climbing Frame' and b-side 'Pictures In The Dark' (bonus track). I have to say however, the remastering on track 18 ('Amour, Amour' 12") is terrible. It's much louder, distorted and smothered in... See full review

This is the only CD source for the 'White Car In Germany' 7" b-side, 'The Associate' (3.40). All other CD pressings featuring this track have only the full 12" version (5:02).

Track 2, 'Enough', is not an original song, but rather a dub mix of 'Mr. Right'.

Track 4, 'Summer Days', is an original song and incorrectly shares the same writing and publishing credits as the other three tracks. On other releases, 'Summer Days' is... See full review
