5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the music, but...., 18 Sep 2013
This review is from: Sound System ( NTSC ) Region 0 (Audio CD)
Firstly the remastered albums sound great, good enough to be worth buying again. Packaging was always what they did best, whether the records or themselves, can take it or leave it personally.
The only fault with this set lies again with the omissions. "Justice tonight/kick it over" is the first. Why do they find it impossible to include "armagideon time" and this together on any compilation? preferably sequenced together? Secondly the extended version of "bankrobber" and the dub version, "robberdub", again which can be sequenced to make one long fantastic track. Thirdly, once again "outside broadcast"and "radio 5" have been omitted, which are another two fantastic versions of "this is radio clash" and should have been included. Incidentally "radio clash" is also different to the "a" side, not just in lyrics. These are not obscure, throwaway b-sides or outtakes, they are great clash recordings that should be on this!! Great to see that mikey dread's "radio 1" made it this time though. Clash, bang, wallop indeed!

I just knew when this box set came out that the songs and remixes and dub versions that you mentioned would have been included. I too am tricked as to why this is not the case. I wanted a complete box set with all previously released material and this is why I will not be buying it.

The missing tracks you mention are available on other compilations. Justice Tonight/Kick It Over and Robber Dub are on Super Black Market Clash. The Radio Clash tracks were included on the CD singles box set. QED if you want absolutely everything, you have to buy absolutely everything. It's not right, but that's how it is. This should not come as a surprise to anyone in the 21st century, when shady marketing and product segmentation have become king.
