FANTASTIC! At last! The second best Liverpool group (after The Beatles) now has got the compilation they deserve. This 4CD box set is just perfect! The selected tracks are all beautifully chosen. All the classic Pye hits are here: Sweets For My Sweet, Love Potion No. 9, Sugar And Spice, Needles And Pins, Don't Throw Your Love Away, Someday We're Gonna Love Again, When You Walk In The Room, What Have They Done To The Rain, Goodbye My Love, Bumble Bee, Take Me For What I'm Worth. (What a list!) Plus most of the excellent Pye LP tracks.
The sound-quality is just stunning! I was so happy to find that most of the early track are in TRUE STEREO. A format me and many more fans prefer before mono. Here the songs just shine so clean and with a pleasant sharp edge. Unsurpassed sound-quality!
You will not only find loads of the early Pye tracks. Here's also a great selection of tracks released by Liberty, RCA, Sire, PRT and Coconut. All tracks are great. But the 10 Sire tracks from 1979-81 are just fantastic. Got raving review in the papers, but didn't hit. Unbelievable, they sound so great with Hearts In Her Eyes giving name to the box set.
And what beautiful box set this is! The 60 pages book is loaded with beautiful pictures, a fine foreword by John Savage, detailed and interesting liner notes by Bob Stanley, comments by members John McNally, Mike Pender, Frank Allan (and many more), compiler's notes and more. Only the book is worth the price, which I find very cheap for this FANTASTIC BOX SET!
