5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, but rather basic, re-issue package, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Luxury Gap / Penthouse And Pavement (Audio CD)
Martyn Ware was in Trafalgar Square on the day of Maggie's funeral and was interviewed live on Sky News; he made much more sense than most of the others commenting that day. It put me in the mood for a bit of early Thatcher-era left-wing electro-pop so I searched and discovered this nicely priced twofer on Amazon. Comprising the 2006 re-masters of Heaven 17's first two albums, along with nine bonus tracks over the two discs, this was a surprisingly welcome return to the very early eighties!

The bonus tracks feature 12" extended versions of some of Heaven 17's songs along with three by the B.E.F - British Electric Foundation - side project. However, the packing for this release is minimal to say the least! When playing it I wondered if "(we don't need this) fascist groove thang" might have been a rather better choice for an anti-Thatcher protest, rather than the Ding Dong song, and whether the BBC would have banned it again, as they did in 1981, had it got to number one this time around - we'll never know!
