*Following the massive success of Edsel's Deluxe 2 CD Editions of "Quick Step & Side Kicks", "Into The Gap" and "Here's To Future Days, we now present the Thompson Twins' first two albums, "A Product Of.." and "Set", both bursting with bonus extra tracks, all making their first appearances on CD.
*"A Product Of...", originally released in June 1981, was released on their own T Records label, when the group featured six members, led by founder Tom Bailey. Never previously available on CD, this release features eleven bonus tracks, including their earliest singles as well as non-album singles sides and 12" extended versions, also on CD for the first time.
*Second album "Set" was issued in February 1982 with seven members in the line-up, which now included Joe Leeway and Alannah Currie. The album commenced with "In The Name Of Love", which when released as a single, was an instant hit in the UK. In the US it went to # 1 in the Billboard dance charts, where it stayed for five weeks. This led to the band signing to the Arista label and the "Set" album being issued in the US with the title "In The Name Of Love".
*Also never previously available on CD, this release contains eight bonus tracks, including the original 12" version of "In The Name Of Love", as well as the previously unreleased "Big Value" synthesizer remix, which Tom Bailey created as a template for the band's future direction. The remainder of the tracks are the extended 12" mixes and the non-album b-sides (including a live recording), also on CD for the first time.
*The attractive booklet features comprehensive annotation and the 7" and 12" sleeves.
