Saw this duo live in David's Bookshop (Letchworth) on RSD 2018...they were excellent....not into folk normally, but Josienne's voice and Ben's guitar really captivated / mesmerised me...absolutely beautiful....and I loved the story behind ... See full review

Bought my copy for 50p in Birmingham's Rag Market in 1990....those were the days....when you could pick up Test Pressings for pennies!!

Completely agree - it's ridiculous.....there should be a separate tab for studio albums only....radio transcripts....live stuff etc., etc should all be separate

Really attractive package....bought this album on CD the week it first came out and never really took to it, as it was quite a change in direction compared to GA's previous albums....as I own all other GA albums on vinyl, couldn't resist buying the ... See full review

Totally agree - a rather poor effort.....'jumping on the bandwagon' springs to mind....bit of a joke (and an insult) that they couldn't be bothered....wonder if there are copyright issues with the artwork?still, I'm glad to now own this on vinyl

Taking tracks from their 4 best albums 'Main Course' 'Spirits Having Flown' Saturday Night Fever OST' and 'Children of the World', plus a handful of others, this compilation is a classic....the Bee Gees at their very best!

What about a 35-year anniversary re-press on vinyl?!? Would love this to be re-released (as many of Eno's other albums have been recently)

If the below comments are anything to go by, I seemingly go against the tide of popular opinion by saying that I absolutely love this album. I have the vinyl copy (2 x 12") and the CD (3 disc) versions....the CD does seem to have an awful lot of ... See full review

Why no repress on vinyl??? This would surely sell by the bucketload!!

This has to be possibly the worst pressing I've ever heard!! Maybe it's just my copy, but the sound is so quiet you can barely hear it....and the speed seems to wobble as well! Unlistenable (if there is such a word)!

I have a copy of this pressing and whilst I agree that the quality of the disc is poor (all sorts of coloured flecks in the black vinyl and a roughly cut edge with loose tags sticking out), the actual quality of the sound is overall SUPERB, with really ... See full review

Easily the best UB40 album and a far cry from their later stuff. Love it!
posted a comment on UB40 - UB44. about 1 year ago
A real let-down of an album after the excellent 'Signing On' and 'Present Arms'/'Present Arms In Dub'...a much more commercial sound

Likewise, I only have the re-master (this one), but it sounds great to me; can't comment on the original pressing though

I have the re-master on 180g vinyl and that sounds good (well to me anyway). A classic album!

[Review of 2 x LP vinyl edition] ...this is growing on me....slowly....it's very different from previous GA releases and a lot of it sounds very post punk/new wave/early 80's to me....puts me in mind of Joy Division a bit (ironically, particularly the ... See full review

I totally second onemanclap'c comments about the audio quality - it's appalling. On the back cover, it says the quality is 24/96KHz - that seems a totally joke. It sounds like it's been recorded on a Dictaphone. Avoid!

Both those two tracks are on the German vinyl version, along with a vocal version of Emma and two other tracks 'There Is' and Springtime' which don't appear on the CD (or the UK LP)

An absolutely excellent album. I bought the CD when it came out 14 years ago and have recently acquired both the German and UK LP versions (different tracks and all three versions). Still sounds as good as it did 14 years ago - and even better on vinyl! ... See full review
