Nostalgia IS what it used to be !
on 30 May 2011
28 years ago? ... blimey, I remember buying this on double vinyl when it first came out: in fact I loved it so much at the time I then also bought it on cassette to go in the car! I somehow missed the re-issue a couple of years ago but spotted it by chance a few weeks ago and had to get this for nostalgia's sake as much as anything. By and large it still sounds pretty good, maybe a bit too much Limahl / Kajagoogoo for my taste but apart from that it's great to own this on CD and to find that "nostalgia IS what it used to be" !. As for the packaging that a few people dont seem to like very much , I have to say I like the replica cardboard sleeves and paper inserts , takes me back to the vinyl days (which is presumably what they were trying to do) and let's face it, it's no worse than the Beatles re-issues which , if anything , are more flimsy than this one. All in all, for a classic slice of early 80's music this compilation takes a lot of beating , much as it did all those years ago in fact !....
