Messy compilation - and still no Dreamworld :-(
on 3 April 2012
30 odd songs for less than a fiver, how can anyone complain? Well...it's all down to the songs (or versions of the songs) that have been selected. For example, the live version of The King Is Dead - from the 12" version of that single, and which completely smokes the album cut - has been left out in favour of, well, the album cut. Similarly, the absolutely fantastic Total Overhang 12" mix of We Close Our Eyes (featuring a sublime guitar solo from the late, great Alan Murphy) has been passed over in favour of the much weaker - but I suppose a bit more danceable - Total Overhang Club Mix...
But where the compiler has really let the side down is by failing to include - again - the rare B-side Dreamworld. As far as I'm aware this song has never been available on CD - and its inclusion would have made the purchase of this CD a no-brainer. Maybe the tapes are lost? Or maybe they're holding it back for a deluxe edition of the debut LP?
If it's the latter, I'll happily suggest a track listing for them :-)
