At the time.. it was a revelation,
This review is from: Time of Revelation (Audio CD)
Originally released in 1996,this ltd edition 4 disc set boasted a hefty 20 unreleased/alternate versions,my copy is no'd no 04915,sound quality is superb and the notes and info contained excellent,over the years the majority of the unreleased/alternate tracks have appeared on the remasters(both '96 & '08 issues)and indeed the whole set has been superceded by the 6 disc 'Chaper & Verse' box set released in 2005.
So is there any reason to pick this up,well completists will require it as it still has some tracks unique to this release namely 'Let It Ride','Feelings & Your Love',from the 5 miles sessions(the aborted 4th album with John Lawton on vocals) and as far as i can tell ABOMINOG outake 'Valley of the KIngs' hasnt been released any where else nor 'Still Calls Her Name' from the SEA OF LIGHT sessions.
A decent compilation essentially redundant save for a couple of rarities,if cheap dont hesitate,if not splash out and get the superior CHAPTER & VERSE set
