5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Ho Jo Fans 31 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Here are extended versions of early 80's Ho Jo singles. It is worth buying for the excelent verion of 'What is love' alone. At only six tracks it may seem poor value for money, but not at all. This is a great companion to Ho Jo's first album. I wouldn't be without it. Def Recomended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snakes 7 Feb 2006
By Evdama
Format:Audio CD
Snakes are the sort that advertise this album on marketplace for 80 and 100 sterling.
Im so glad my audio cassette edition still works - its over 20 yrs old and a bit noisy though.
The cover photo gives an idea of what you're going to hear -a fair selection of the 80's finest musical cliche.
It was cool at the time.
I just get sideways looks from my son.
If you can get past the "uncomfortableness of uncool" and "Dad- this is the Ceefax music isnt it" (cheeky little......)then this album ,despite its limited track list is a treat and well worth buying -only at a normal price though.
Apart from the "conditioning" item at the end,which is far from your best Mr Ho-Jo,theres all the best chart stuff to choose from in extended form.The best riffs repeated to your hearts content.
Hearing this for the first time in nearly two decades set the hair on the back of the neck-some real gems.
Early 80's synth was previously dominated by eithier morose glumness such as Depeche Mode or Kraftwerk,or by pretensious frenchmen with laserbeam lightshows instead of talent.
HJ brought a warm upbeat selection of quality work that saw synth out to the late part of the decade.This album sums it up well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great remixes from the Human's Lib album 28 Nov 2006
By SRFireside - Published on Amazon.com
What you have here is a very rare CD release of Howard Jones' The 12" Collection vinyl album. It showcases six tracks that are mainly remixes of songs from the Human's Lib album. This album originally came in vinyl record form. You can tell that the first three songs were on "side A" since they mix together in a seamlessly uninterrupted mix. "Side B" is also evident with the final tracks melding together the same way as well. What you end up with is one of the best remix albums you can find for Howard Jones.

The album starts off with a completely original track called Always Asking Questions. The music style is in the same vein as songs like Equality and Pearl in the Shell. An aggressive beat with an upbeat flair to it. Another original song... at least for its time... is Like to Get to Know You Well. This version was released before the Dream into Action album, and it's a bit different with some of the chorus being sung in French and German. The rest of the tracks are extended mixes done VERY well. New Song literally swims all around you by the end of it. Pearl in the Shell has an extended sax solo in it. What is Love? gives you a chance to soak up all the lush background textures of the song.

If you are a HoJo fan and like the Human's Lib album this particular collection is going to be a gem for you. Unfortunately it's going to be a very hard to find gem, as the CD was released back in the late 80's in limited quantities in Germany and I think Japan. So it's pretty rare. It's totally up to you on whether or not you want to pay the premium price. All I can say it's probably one of the best CD's to add to your classic Howard Jones collection.

Since there was no track listing of this writing I went ahead and added one for your convenience.

01. Always Asking Questions
02. New Song (new version)
03. What is Love? (extended mix)
04. Like to Get to Know You Well (international mix)
05. Pearl in the Shell (extended mix)
06. Total Conditioning

5.0 out of 5 stars Why Wait? 11 Dec 2010
By Muddle One - Published on Amazon.com
My old cassette tape of these wonderful songs/versions is just about worn out - time to update my "Ho-Jo" collection I think. Look at that high price for a used CD copy. But,what do my eyes spy? a digital down load version of said beautiful songs. Hey, it might not sound as warm as the LP, perhaps a bit brittle maybe? but for under $6.00, go for it...
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Album of 1980's pop candy and remixes! 26 Jun 2014
By William G. - Published on Amazon.com

4 Star pop music from the 1980's, if you like your 1980's pop from the UK you'll probably like this. More happy go lucky than clinically depressed bands like the Cure and Depeche Mode.

2.0 out of 5 stars What? 27 Aug 2008
By Stefan Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Another mix album? The ONLY reason I give this release two stars: Jones is a wonderful writer and composer. These tracks do not "date". I simply cannot believe that Jones cannot create new tunes. Sad.
