As a fan of Mr foxx for over 20 years, I waited in anticipation, for this little gem, of a cd package. Even before you play a sound,you will be impressed at the wonderful look & clever packaging of this item. With the help of an informative and photo scattered booklet, we travel back to 1983. 'The golden section tour'. This disc captures the total essence of Foxx as a 'live' artist. It only seems like yesturday, I stood transfixed at this show.
'Slow motion' 'Quiet men''Systems of romance' to name but a few, bring the memories back to life. The highlight, the haunting & beatifuly arranged 'The garden', will send you drifting into a virtual countryside.
The second disc gives us a mature and technically developed John Foxx, featuring his new found partner Lois Gordon.
'The omnidelic exotour' disc was recorded, 'live' in the studio. Audience shouts or claps cannot confirm this, though I dont doubt the guy. Almost all the tracks are reworkings of 'classic' Foxx songs. '20th century'is an improvement of the original, though Foxx, never steps over the mark to, 'over do it', musically. In fact, I beleive this is the case with most of the tracks. 'The quiet men' appears again. Quite different from the disc 1 'live' version of '83. 'Burning car'is true 'techo-punk'. Echo synths, distorted drum loops, as fresh as the original.
We 'shift' to newer songs 'the noise' 'through my sleeping' and we close our musical journey with the song that the word 'classic' was truly invented for, 'Endlessly'.
And yes, 'endlessly' the Foxx fans pleasure will be.
This will be your favourite buy from amazon, for a very long time...enjoy
