3.0 out of 5 stars A milestone remaster misses the mark..., 10 Oct 2012
This review is from: Running In The Family (25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
Being a big fan of Level 42 and asking my parents for this album on cassette way back in May 1987 i was really hoping that the 25th anniversary issue with this being the poorer relation to the Super Deluxe version would have been worth purchasing.

Myself and most other fans of the band already own RITF (Platinum Edition) and the Polydor RITF remaster from 2000 which just repeats itself here. So what do we get, the original nine track album still ending with Freedom Someday instead of The Sleepwalkers as per the original cassette and first cd versions (personal preference). Acoustic renterpretations of the album tracks (always a bit hit & miss) and live tracks which are just a direct audio rip from the Live At Wembley 1986 dvd.

Here's personally how i would have prefered this cd to look, Edsel Records take note!

CD 1 (Original Album)

Lessons In Love
Children Say
Running In The Family
It's Over
Freedom Someday
To Be With You Again
Two Solitudes
Fashion Fever
The Sleepwalkers

CD 2 (Remixes & rarites)

Lessons In Love (Extended Version)
Lessons In Love (Shep Pettibone Remix)
Lessons In Love (Dub Mix)(Shep's Final Mix)
Children Say (Remix)
Children Say (Extended Remix)
Children Say (Slap Bass Mix)
Running In The Family (Dave `O' Remix)
Running In The Family (HTL Dub)
It's Over (Extended Remix)
To Be With You Again (7 Inch Mix)
To Be With You Again (A.D.S.C. Mix)
To Be With You Again (Dub Mix)

So to sum up, yet another missed opportunity by the compilers and record company and i for one won't be parting with my cash just for a flashy slipcase and booklet with unseen photos. But i'm off to see the band this month who are always great live and celebrate RITF 25 years.

I agree,what a waste of a deluxe release.where are all the 12 inch mixes? Any fan could have done a better job on choosing the extra tracks.i find this sort of release soooooooo annoying.will not be buying!
