incorrect versions of some songs,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sweet Loving Ways - The Collection (Audio CD)
I think this is a great CD, well worth your few quid. I've given it a low score to indicate to your more discerning Councillor that the versions of The Paris Match, My Ever Changing Moods, You're the Best Thing and The Lodgers on this 2 CD set are the album versions, NOT the single versions.
This is a pity as the versions on the singles are quite different and only available on other comps or the box set. Because the tracks are arranged in strict chronological order you can tell that it's a mistake, i.e the Tracey Thorn version of the Paris Match (released in 84) coming before A Solid Bond (83)...
But there's a lot to recommend it, lots of B sides and album tracks and most of the A sides on one collection, the selection is a bit inconsistent, only one track from The Cost of Loving but 3 bsides from the 1987 singles..but this might be useful if you don't already have those b sides on Cd...
note on packaging - the CDs come in the old style double cd case - sturdy. Good collection of a great band.

Really helpful - thanks. I am a big fan of TSC, but do prefer the single versions of those songs. Having said that - the mix is too good to resist, but at least I am pre-warned on the versions I will get.
