3.0 out of 5 stars Another Cope deluxe edition - another balls up! 14 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
After the massive disappointment of the 2006 Jehovah Kill remastering (a sonic disaster)you might have thought that island might have ensured they got this one right? Right? WRONG! UNBELIEVABLY SO VERY WRONG!
On first listening to disc one at least, the remastering seems to have avoided the distortion problems of the Jehovah Kill remastering which made the latter probably the worst remaster i had ever heard. Sonically, the Peggy Suicide reissue is ok:certainly brighter and crisper than the original, a tad more detail retrieval, but losing some natural warmth and depth compared to the original; a common trait in remastered discs. I guess this is just a matter of personal taste.

So my main problem with the new deluxe edition? The track inclusions, or rather the lack of...Where is 'uptight', the track which was on the original vinyl release of the album, but missing on the original cd due to time limitations of the cd format. All pre-release track listings for Peggy Suicide deluxe edition have included 'uptight' as track 15 on disc one. Never having owned the vinyl copy of this album i was so happy to be finally getting my hands on this long lost Cope track. So imagine my frustration and sense of betrayal when i arrived home from work today to find my amazon delivery waiting for me...only to look at the track listing and find...you guessed it, no 'uptight'!!! AAAARRGHHH!!!! What is the problem with these idiots at island records? Are they so incompetent that they are prepared to misinform all musical retailers/publicists of an incorrect track listing? There are even discrepencies on the track listing for disc two: my cd has eleven tracks on it, amazon listed 13, hmv 15!!! What is going on?!!! Its an utter joke, and truelly unprofessional and shoddy in the extreme.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed Opportunity... 23 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have to agree with Mr. Top Cat; what a bodge job this is. No 'Uptight', no 'Port of Saints', no 'Bagged-Out Ken' and no Hiphoprisy versions of 'Soldier Blue', tchah! .... Island could have left off some of the remixes which have been available for years on the 'Dancing Heads' e.p.. Even the booklet in my copy is cocked up with two pages being printed twice... A five star album given a three star reissue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great musical depth 24 Dec 2008
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Peggy Suicide is an album of incredible variety and scope, especially the rhythmic textures & the impressive array of guitars. The arrangements are innovative and the music melodious. The opener Pristeen is a tuneful ballad with extraordinary guitar sounds, followed by Double Vegetation, a brooding number with nervous rhythms. The tender Promised Land starts out as a folkie rumination, turning into a rock ballad as the guitars enter for a powerful build-up.

The uptempo rock song Hanging Out & Hung up on the Line is reprised later in the atmospheric Hung up & Hanging out to Dry with its long instrumental introduction. There are two anti-road songs, the funky East Easy Rider and Drive, She Said, a mid-tempo rock ballad with lovely vocal arrangements. Julian sure didn't like the road. Safesurfer opens with tormented guitars and in its tempo shifts display lovely mini-moog & piano.

The percussive If You Loved Me At All is a catchy track with symphonic keyboards, massed acoustic guitars later joined by electric ones, and considerably less gravitas than the others. There are two songs that explore overt psychological themes, the jittery track You with its unusual baritone sax and the appealingly melodic Head, whilst the buoyant Beautiful Love is spiritual & uplifting with its joyful trumpet. The American Lite, a stirring love song, and Las Vegas Basement are tender ballads with beautiful melodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the Young Drudes 12 Jun 2007
By Moz
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a bosting CD (excuse my lapse into local vernacular). Wierd and off the wall stuff - Safe Surfer, Pristine, Los Vegas Basement, Double Vegetation are all Cope classics, with that gentle sense of threat and disgust. There are no duff tracks here. The guitar work is squeezed and treated and distorted (although strangely sensitive at times)to make an exquisite counter point to the Arch Drudes offset lyrics. It makes it all different and outside the box - just what you need to counter the breadhead world. Roky must be proud of his disciple's continuation of hiws work. Truly counter culture music.

Format:Audio CD
Peggy Suicide was the album that got me listening to guitar-based rock again after I'd spent much of the previous three or four years listening largely to dance music, rap, and the remnants of 1980s keyboard-based pop music. It has remained one of my favorite albums over the years.

I was excited to learn that Universal were to reissue the album as a Deluxe Edition, particularly since they seem to take a bit more care with the mastering and packaging than record companies do with the typical CD these days.

However, the track listings on the various web sites (including this one) offering this disc have invariably been wrong, even though scans of front and back covers have usually been available. For starters, "Uptight" (which is referenced in the credits in the booklet accompanying the original CD, but was left off, presumably due to lack of space) is NOT included. This clearly indicates inaccurate pre-release information coming from the label.

Then, disc 2 contains just 11 tracks, not the 13 to 15 tracks typically indicated. The 11 tracks are:
* Easty Risin' (East Easy Rider remix)
* Ravebury Stones
* Love L.U.V.
