barbara dickson - 2fer/2-4-1CD album w/Tarney/spencer band, 30 Jan 2012
this package at £5.00 is a real bargain for a double CD album with both albums produced by Alan Tarney in 1979/80. There are at least 4 hit singles taken from both albums. The bonus tracks further add value to an almost near perfect reissue package. Sound quality is remastered - crisp and clear.
A Long-winded explanation:-
both albums previously on LP/TC in 1979, 1980 and un-re-mastered CD reissues in 1992/3 on Epic budget label.
d.o.r = mon 30/1/2012, this time on edsel label[EDSD 2117], a subsidiary of demon music group ltd, with ultra high VFM ie 2 CD albums for <<£10GBP.
i presume both albums now digitally remastered sound quality - but still evaluating as i write this memo.
CD1=10+3 cuts & CD2=10+2 cuts. ie total of 25 songs.
splendid 2 bonus BD+TSB:-b sides on disc 1(tk=13,islands in the snow) and disc 2(tk=12,forgotten time).
(usefully but not entirely relevantly) padded out with other non-tarney producers eg caravan song, run like a wind, come back with the same look in your eyes.
with only about another 5 minutes extra work, it could have been just a tad bit better with 2 more BD+TSB songs that occured after 1981:-
(i) Stop in the name of love - 7"/1983 (on several(>1) comp' CD-BD-albums.)
(ii) keepin my love for you - LP/TC-1984. (on Heartbeats album - not on CD.)
but alas not on this release.! great pity.
Still, thoroughly recommended. well done, but......!
