5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest labels!, 14 Nov 2008
This review is from: Zang Tumb Tuum: The ZTT Box Set (Audio CD)
ZTT were one of THE great record labels during my formative years and this beautifully fashioned collection is everything I hoped it would be. Pretty much all of the big hits and Trevor Horn productions are included, alongside a lot of lesser known but often equally interesting tunes by artists like The Frames, Heights of Abraham and Tara, who was Joan Collin's daughter, don't you know. I didn't.
Plus you get a DVD disc featuring 18 ZTT videos. Some of them have dated as you might expect, but there are some real gems here - like Shane MacGowan's `That Woman's Got Me Drinking', which was directed by and stars Johnny Depp, the rare Video Destructo version of Frankie's Two Tribes and Close (To The Edit) by the brilliant Art of Noise, with it's satanic pixie smashing up pianos and suchlike.
It also comes with a 72-page book with detailed notes, lots of cool photos and a long essay from label co-founder Paul Morley, who is wordy but always entertaining.
It's about time the work of `Zang Tuum Tumb' was celebrated in this way and here is a timely reminder of what an exciting label they were/are.
To be fair, anything that includes Duel by Propaganda and Cubik by the wonderful 808 State is going to get my knickers in a knot, but this really is a great piece of work on a number of levels.

5 stars!
