Biography

The world first got an eyeful of Idol - known to his parents as William Broad - when he was one of the “Bromley Contingent,” an assortment of nascent punks whose presence at the live shows of the then-unknown Sex Pistols was not unlike the Warhol Factory denizens who enlivened Velvet Underground performances, or the troupe of dancers led by sculptor Vito Paulekas who made magic in ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Billy Idol Rocks 28 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Always been a 80's music fan & always defended the 1980's even when it was cool not to like Culture Club, Duran Duran, Blondie,Billy Idol to name only a few. I have been a fan of dance & trance music since the early 80's. I first heard Blank & Jones in Amstedam in the clubs & would return with mixed cds by the duo. So here we are with Billy Idol meets Blank & Jones & nobody is more happy than me. They have complied best of with a few twist & turns. If your a Idol fan there nothing new but the sheer enjoyment of a great artist's work brought together by two guys love of the 80's. Check out the Culture Club compilation & the So80's compilation CDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars pretty comprehensive collection of extended mixes and long versions 16 May 2012
By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While this may seem like a simple re-release of Vital Idol or a greatest hits compilation (which it really is), this compilation has a few new highlights. Instead of the Mother of Mercy mix of To Be a Lover (which was on the original re-release of Vital Idol), the alternate 12" mix called the "Rock n Roll Mix" is included. Instead of the 'remix-fix' (aka: rub a dub dub) of Catch my Fall, we get the Special Remix, which is simply a slight remix of the album version without all the heavy pulsing synth bass from the remix fix. The "hunglikeapony" mix of Mony Mony is included instead of the downtown mix. Hot in the City is slightly different than the Vital Idol version in that it fades out instead of coming to a cold end, and therefore runs about 10 seconds longer.

Adding to the collection to make it more a greatest hits than a 12" mix compilation, there are album length versions of eyes without a face, rebel yell, LA Woman, and sweet sixteen. PLUS, instead of the album version of Cradle of Love, we get the Cradle of Dub (which has vocals, but is missing the kickin' meat of the music), and the meltdown mix of don't need a gun, as compared to the longer "beyond meltdown mix", which can be found on the various artists compilation so80s 2.

If I'm disappointed in anything about this collection, it's that Blank & Jones didn't 'fix' the 12" version of White Wedding and re-edit it (like they did with tracks on the Culture Club compilation) to include the verse from the album version that is missing from the extended version. Also note that it says in the liner notes that Catch My Fall and Don't Need a Gun are both vinyl transfers, which I assume means they couldn't find the original masters. But it still sounds pristine.

1 Dancing With Myself (Uptown Mix) 5:59
2 Rebel Yell (LP Version) 4:48
3 To Be A Lover (Rock 'N' Roll Mix) 7:13
4 Eyes Without A Face (LP Version) 4:58
5 Hot In The City (Extended Version) 5:20
6 Catch My Fall (Special Remix) 3:43
7 White Wedding - Parts 1 & 2 (Shot Gun Mix) 8:26
8 Flesh For Fantasy (Below The Belt Mix) 7:06
9 Don't Need A Gun (Meltdown Mix) 7:05
10 Mony Mony (Hung Like A Pony Mix) 7:02
11 L.A. Woman (LP Version) 5:31
12 Cradle Of Dub (Extended Mix) 6:28
13 Sweet Sixteen (LP Version) 4:15

5.0 out of 5 stars TOTALLY AWESOME! 15 May 2013
By Just Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First off, I am a Billy Idol fan. I enjoy everything he has done, and this CD is the BEST extended, remixed and remastered of Billy's biggest hits! If you are an Idol fan or just cannot get enough of the 80's music ... do NOT pass this up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation. 18 Jun 2014
By Robert Birkhold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had been looking for the "Rock and Roll Mix" of "To Be A Lover" for a long time. The inclusion of this track makes it a "must have" for me. The other track selections are excellent as well.
