I was thrilled when I saw news of this title receiving a deluxe edition! Finally, I thought, I'd have all Dee C. Lee's output digitally after far too long being trapped on out of print vinyl... but there are two glaring omissions from the set which prevent me from enjoying it fully.
Firstly, two A-sides are completely absent. Selina Wow Wow and Yippee-Yi-Yay! The B-sides from these tracks are here. The 12" versions of these tracks are here. The instrumental/dub mixes of these tracks are also here! But not the actual 7" singles which charted. For me, that's very disappointing... orphaned singles should take presidency over instrumentals and such, surely?
Secondly, rather bizarrely, included here is one orphaned 7" A-side, Don't Do It Baby, which originally appeared in succession with Selina Wow Wow and Yipee-Yi-Yay... so why one and not all three?!
Finally, and the most infuriating, is the fact that each CD has a playing time of just over an hour. There's almost 40 minutes of playing time available across both CDs... and the missing 7" A-sides would total 7 minutes! Why leave out two 7" A-sides?! Madness! This was almost Dee's entire 80s solo output. Such a shame it's not complete.
