5.0 out of 5 stars New Musik Double Treat, 14 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: From A To B / Anywhere (Audio CD)
Well what a treat. This largely forgotten band from South London produced three albums in the early 80s, the best two of which are featured here in their entirety on this exciting compilation. From A to B originally released in April 1980 featured four hit singles: the Band's debut Straight Lines as well as Living by Numbers, This World of Water and Sanctuary. In the days of vinyl, squeezing more than ten songs onto an album was a challenge. No such problems here, on From A to B we are treated to 6 bonus tracks which are as well crafted and catchy as any of the more familiar titles on the album, She's a Magazine being a particular favourite. I actually bought the package for the Groups second album "Anywhere" and have hardly stopped listening to it since. Tracks like Changing Minds and They All Run After the Craving Knife moved the band's concepts to a new level and reacquainting myself with them after all these years has been sheer joy! Again, there are extras to be enjoyed with a further three bonus tracks on offer. After the Groups demise, front man Tony Mansfield went on to pursue a successful career as a record producer working with bands such as Aztec Camera and A-Ha. Much of their influences can be found here in the exciting work of New Musik. Go on, treat yourself.
