5.0 out of 5 stars
Good value reissue, 28 Oct. 2010
This reissue combines the original 'Dare' album with the 'Love and Dancing' instrumental remix album, all on one CD. As such, and at the price sold, it represents an excellent bargain. My only criticism is of the packaging. The album comes in a hardback 'book' style package that looks and feels nice from the outside, but the content and presentation inside is somewhat scrappy in my opinion. The photographs are not reproduced well, and the text, which includes the lyrics of the songs, credits, plus a retrospective comment by Phil Oakey, is not stylishly presented. It doesn't really bother me because I bought the album in order to listen to the music on it, not pore over the sleeve notes, but nevertheless it spoils this resissue. Perhaps there will be a more 'de luxe' 30th anniversary remastered edition to come.
