4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff for what is in part a 15 CD best of Virgin records - 5 triple CDs and only a few naff tracks...
Great stuff...but I suppose Virgin can't omit tracks I don;'t like! horrendous to admit I now have something by Culture Club and Phil Collins after avoiding them for so long...

3.0 out of 5 stars Must try harder
So we now have Universal picking over the bones of Virgin Records with these rushed compilation albums.
Despite having a compilation overseer and TWO Tape Research people they still manage to put on the butchered version of Decline Of The West by BEF instead of the 7 min original version.
A lot of the usual suspects on here, there is still many other great...

So we now have Universal picking over the bones of Virgin Records with these rushed compilation albums.
Despite having a compilation overseer and TWO Tape Research people they still manage to put on the butchered version of Decline Of The West by BEF instead of the 7 min original version.
A lot of the usual suspects on here, there is still many other great Virgin singles that have not been on CD before which could have been included.
They do get plus points for the first time on CD inclusion of Japan's 7'' mix of Gentlemen Take Polaroids.
But overall it should have been overseen by a real expert or someone from the label so it could so much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars More triple-CD excellence from Virgin, 16 Dec. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Gold Dreams (Audio CD)
The first 75% of this triple combines the iconic with the countless acts Virgin invested in (or not) as it desperately searched for the next big thing. By the early '80s, thanks to Culture Club, Japan, Simple Minds and, er, The Flying Pickets, paydirt was well and truly hit, although the most interesting music fell by the wayside. Highlights include OMD's 'Electricity', Magazine's "A Song From Under The Floorboards' and Fingerprintz' 'Houdini Love'.

This review is from: New Gold Dreams (Audio CD)
Pure nostalgia. Not only was it great to hear some of the classics from that era but also to discover some other gems that I missed out on first time around!
Also good service and prompt delivery.
