Spandau Ballet - Once More


To Cut A Long Story Short

The first time that most Londoners heard the words Spandau Ballet was on the London Weekend Television arts programme Twentieth Century Box, in May 1980. Presented by Danny Baker, Twentieth Century Box was the place you went to for your youth culture fix.

And Baker’s programme was devoted to a new cult, The Cult With No Name, a bunch of soul boys and ... Read more in Amazon's Spandau Ballet Store

5.0 out of 5 stars 'THE' ALBUM OF THE NEW ROMANTIC 1980'S ERA. 27 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
True by Spandau fronted by Tony Hadley has to be one of the best albums not only of the band but of the whole early 80's. As soon as you listen to the haunting tracks from 'Gold' to 'True' it takes you sweeping back to 1983. Spandau seemed to encapsulate the New Romantic era along with 'Duran Duran' and make it there own. All the songs on this now classic album are fantastic and sound as good today as they did then. What with Tony's melo vocals to Gary Kemps song writing talents the band couldn't loose !. This is a must buy all the better for the re-mix of 'GOLD' and the home movie footage for the P.C as a VCD. The album gives a warm glow to day's gone that will never be so better captured by any band.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Much Is True! 13 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Album number three in the Spandau catalogue gets the special edition treatment.Thankfully,unlike some of the recent EMI remasters,they have managed to get it right on this reissue.

Much of the work was already done by using the 2003 remaster released on True: 20th Anniversary Enhanced Edition and Super Audio CD True.The albums producer,Tony Swain,supervised this 2003 digital remaster and he did a stellar job.In my opinion the SACD,which sounds superb,is the definitive edition.Unfortunately it's no longer available and is commanding obscene prices from third party sellers.I was lucky enough to pick up a copy from Amazon.If you can find one that's not too expensive and have the relevant hardware(an SACD/Bluray player or some PS3 models),you will not hear a better master of this album.But don't worry,the first cd in this Special edition is the next best thing.

Cd number two gathers together all the relevant single edits/extended versions released,some of which appear on cd for the first time,and the 2002 Gary Kemp remix of True,previously only available on the 3 disc anthology Reformation.Plus four live tracks,previously unreleased,recorded at Sadler's Well London on the 1st of May 1983 during the "Over Britain" tour.

This same live concert,minus the four aforementioned tracks on cd two,is included on disc three,a dvd.Herein lies the real treat for Spandau fans.A 10 track video performance,nicely filmed and well restored with half decent sound considering it was recorded in 1983.Very nice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Time does not diminish 9 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
I never realised in those hedonistic days how much I enjoyed Spandau Ballet until I got to playing them again in the late 90,s. Fed up with all the "modern trash" I looked back for a smoother sound, went through my vinyl and found I had, True, Parade and a cassette of Through the Barricades!!. Since then I have updated all albums, from Journeys to glory though to " Heart like a sky" and absolutely love them all. In my view an underrated band. Heart like a sky has some fantastic tracks that have been lost due to the bands acrimonious split in 1989. The reworking of True is fantastic. The DVD from Sadlers Wells is superb, and the band sound the same live as they do on the tracks, a true testimony to the playing skills of the guys. Steve Norman is superb, Tony has a superb voice and knocks spots of most artists from this era and still does today. Excellent sound quality and a must buy. Any "true" Spandau fan will love it, and anybody prepared to give this a try for the first time will be bowled over.

4.0 out of 5 stars SACD 80's Heaven 2 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
Mixed only in Stereo I thought I was going to be disappointed with this 80's classic. I was wrong. The individual instruments can be heard clearly and Tony Hadleys voice has never sounded smoother. The real standout tracks are of course GOLD and TRUE worth buying for alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have SACD 4 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
A must for any fan of SACD and tuneful pop this landmark 80s album shows that, despite all its detractors, SACD is the supreme digital format. No CD or mp3 can match the spine tingling quality of this remaster - it has the kind of holographic imagery only heard on the very best vinyl replay and conveys the emotion and artistry at work here in spades.
