The Missed Oppurtunity,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gift (Super Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
I haven't heard this as yet as I am expecting to receive this for Christmas.
I cannot comment on the sound cause as I say I haven't heard it.
But as someone who has been ardent Jam fan from the age of twelve I feel this is a missed opportunity to round up the final chapter of probably the last great English band.
For me it was disappointing to see get yourself together as a bonus track on Sound Affects
as it was recorded around the time of the Gift sessions, And why the bands version of my minds eye wasn't included is a total mystery as it was recorded at the same time. Also why isn't I got you included as it was recorded at same time as the other soul covers which at the time were rumoured to have been coming out as an Ep. It is good to see the original version of War which was the b side of the 5 o clock hero 12 inch single included.
It would of been nice to see one of the Hammersmith or Sobbell shows that took place before Christmas 81 included , They played some great covers on those shows.
For me the other things missing are
Solid bond in your heart band version
the brass version of tales from the riverbank
also the demo of Dr love which was recorded by Tracie.
I am still looking forward to getting it for Christmas i just wish there was more fan involvement.
It will be intresting to see what will be reissued next? My money is on a super deluxe of Café Bleu.
