Format: Audio CD
This CD brings together the 11 tracks of the original UK album, plus four songs from a 12" EP release shortly after (which explains the two versions of Wouldn't Treat A Dog). Rather frustratingly (at least for me, and the reason why I've docked one star), they've messed with the sequencing of the original album, dropping in the EP cuts into the body of the album, and putting the original (and superior) album mix of WTAD at the end of the disc, rather than at the beginning.

Nevertheless, there are some top tunes to be found on here :-)

Having seen a live performance by the man himself recently, I was very interested to realise there were now proper CDs available. When I first came across this title it was in vinyl only. This is probably the best of their joint albums containing most of my absolute favourites and it has never been off my playlist since. The quality of Clive's playing together with Christine's astonishing vocal range and amazing songs makes for a wonderful purchase.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This second album from the great Brit-folk duo Clive Gregson and Christine Collister was originally released in 1987, later the same year as the debut `Home and Away'.

On `Mischief' virtually all the songs are Gregson compositions, in contrast to the covers recorded previously. Although not every track is a star, the best songs here are outstanding. `I wouldn't treat a Dog' (two different recordings appear on this CD release), `I specialise', `Wash me away', `Rain on your Parade' and `Lost at Sea' are the pick of the bunch.

The mojo was working for this duo when this album was recorded. There are some great original songs, powerful combined vocal delivery infused with feeling backed by Gregson's clear unfussy guitar work and a good rhythm section. If a criticism can be levelled it is that the mix on a couple of numbers is not ideal, with the vocal track (especially Collister's powerful alto) not quite loud enough and dominated by too much volume from the rhythm section. However this is minor nit-picking, and some listeners might not even notice.

Overall this CD is a steal at the price, so if you don't know this duo's work it's an ideal place to start. If it floats your boat, try their later releases `A change in the Weather', `Love is a strange Hotel' and `The Last Word'.

It's not perfect but it does have its moments of mischief 23 Jun 2012
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The second album from the duo of Gregson and Collister gives us some of their best songs mixed with some curiously pedestrian ones. It's as if Gregson was still adjusting to writing material that would fit Collister as a singer and, most of the time, he gets it right but occasionally, the results are mixed.

The album could have been trimmed down by three or four songs and improve the album in the process.

For those that had the Rhino release, this does have one track not on that version--a slightly extended version of "I Wouldn't Treat A Dog"--and the mastering on this edition is quite good (it's not credited as to who did it). Gregson provides comments on the making of the album and the tracks included. While it might have been nice to have a handful of demos for this album included, what we do get is a very good reissue of an underappreciated album by a killer singer (Collister) and one of the finest songwriters of his generation (Gregson).

"Mischief" is a really good album that has a couple of tracks that don't represent Gregson at his best. The two follow up albums of original material A Change in the Weather and Last Wordrepresent the duo at their best.

Five Stars is not enough! 30 Oct 2005
By Donald P. Pehta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Clive Gregson and Christine Collister voices join beatifully in

the collection of love songs, ballads, and smooth jazz. My wife and I play this at bedtime, and it sends us to dreamland with contented smiles. Sometimes it takes us a little while to get to sleep, and we start the CD again. A winner.
