Most of these were originally the 12" remixes available in some way or another in an age with no internet where you just had to go along to your local record shop & get them to order it for you. So you lucky lot living in the cyberage Sputnik were actually meant for can get em all with just a click of the button.

Some of the songs are just longer versions with more voiceovers & sampling than the original single & you'll need a fine ear to hear the difference between the Bangkok & Japanese versions of Love Missile F1-11. Others, however, like the Metal Hammer version of Success & Samba Mix of Rio Rocks are total reworkings & a pleasure to behold either alongside or as alternatives to the originals.

This is both an excellent bedfellow to the singles collection or a stand alone bone rattler album from the kings of electronic rock & roll.

So you're a Sputnik fan, so you'll notice a couple anomalies straight away but it's nothing major.

One person mentioned you'll need a good ear to tell the difference between the jap Bangkok remix (Track 12) to the original UK version, that's because it is the UK version. The jap version is track 4 and is the same version as the US version. The Jap Bangkok remix was a Toshiba EMI 12" cat no S14-143 and used the replaced movie clips and samples as did the US version on the Manhattan label. The difference can be heard easily, most noticeably on the opening section with Rossini's Thieving Magpie being replaced on the Jap Version (track 4). It's a little lame really, very keyboard sounding. The original UK version Cat No 12SSS1(Track 12) still has the original Thieving Magpie clip, though it seams to be mixed in favour of treble as it sounds a little maraca shaking sounding and a little bright. Gone is the weighty kick of the drums in the opening. Track 4 and track 12 are titled backwards, Track 4 is the Jap Bangkok remix, Track 12 is the UK version.

Rio Rocks Heavy is the standard 12" version without the fade about 5 or 6 minutes in, so keeps going to an abrupt end. This has always been the case of 'Heavy'. Rio Rocks Samba is the 12" Samba mix, though there is a 7" Samba mix in the original 12".

In all a good selection of the better remixes.

All these recordings were available earlier (usually on vinyl) but not that easy to get. If you like Sigue Sigue Sputnik then you will like this (but it is an acquired taste). Sigue Sigue Sputnik did specialise in 12" singles, so these are the best representations of their work (especially the earlier stuff).
