So I am a Hard-Fi fan so I do own practically all of disc1 - exclusions being:
'I Shall Overcome' Fist Full of Dollars mix - very cool, complete with a Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino style trumpet
'You and Me' - great not to have to listen to this on Youtube anymore
'Move Over' - the long awaited new song with political theme and a jazzy groove
But for me its all about disc2. You get all the mixes of the hits (Axwell, Steve Angello & Sebastian Ingrosso, Greg Kirstin etc), some solid album tracks and a classy R1 live lounge version of Tied Up. The icing on the cake or jam in the doughnut is the B-sides and rarities....
'Middle Eastern Holiday' Wrongtom meets the Rockers East of Medina - note this is not the dub version! It's a more striped down rocking sound. Awesome!
'Hard To Beatmix' - a proper rarity... some sort of early remix of the song
B-sides - I think were vinyl only?
'Pain In My Heart' 'Polish Love Song' 'Dont Wanna Fight' 'These Four Walls and I' and 'Empty Streets' - the last one being my favourite with a real cool groove
Most people will probably have everything on the standard version, but this deluxe is a must have for any proper Hard-Fi fan!

Well if anyone thinks Hard Fi have run out of steam i suggest they buy this deluxe edition and hear for themselves how many great records they have made.There is not a dud track on this set with all the hits on CD1 and some fantastic dance mixes on CD2 along with B sides which could have been singles.After two No 1 albums and the No 9 Killer sounds there is more to come from this band yet and for the time been this should keep many people happy and the ones that were not sure i suggest they buy this double set as it has everything you would need.Happy listening,
