'An Excellent Compilation',
This review is from: Modern Art: The Best of John Foxx (Audio CD)
For those of us that remember a lot of these tracks from the time, this cd is a real winner on a number of fronts.
One. It collects all of John's early singles (tracks 1-12 with exception of '20th Century' were all A sides).
Two. The recordings have all been re-mastered (with supervision by Foxx) so the sound is excellent
Three. It includes the hard to find track 'My Face' which was previously only available on a 'Smash Hits' flexidisc 'back in the day'.
Four. The booklet contains an interesting interview with John by Daryl Easlea of Record Collector magazine.
Five. Including towards the end some of John's newer (and probably therefore less well known) material gives fans of primarily his 80's work (like me) considerable food for thought! Tracks like 'The Noise' and 'Nightlife' being especially interesting, merging as they do, John's 80's sound with modern dance floor sounds something that works surprisingly well!
'Modern Art' is not just a good introduction to John's work, but also a real treat for fans with a bit of 'catching up' to do!
