As well as lots of pics there's a foreword by Kim, a VERY comprehensive four page biography of the girls, as well as page by page information and photos on every single they released. Each single has images of the many variations of cover they had in different territories, as well as picture discs and rare editions.
Also pictured are really rare items such as the 7" single of 'More than words can say" (released in the Netherlands only).
As for the discs themselves, the artwork on the discs is gorgeous, especially disc 1 which is a variation shot from the FLM photoshoot (and the image used on the 12" FLM remix single). The 2nd CD image is from the U.S FLM shoot with them in the white hats and dresses.
The cover is also reversible, with the UK version on the front and the U.S version on the back.
The tracks have never sounded better and there are many rare remixes and alternate versions here. Especially fantastic are 'More than words can say' the extended 12" version. The 12" versions of Feel a whole lot better, and Who's gonna catch you, and the inclusion of the slower original into version of 'You changed my life' which has never been available on CD before (it only featured on the first pressing B side of the That's the way it is single).
This is an amazing testimony to the Appleby sisters and I can't recommend this highly enough, I'd pay twice as much for it.Read more ›
Cherry Pop have produced a truly deluxe edition of "F.L.M." here. Every track is superb, including the bonus tracks and the sound quality is fantastic. As if getting the original album tracks with all the original 7" and 12" single mixes isn't enough, we are also treated to the remixes from the limited edition 12" singles and also some unreleased remixes. Usually it is clear to see why previously unreleased tracks remained unreleased. It is usually because they weren't very good in the first place. But with the Mel & Kim remixes they are up to the same quality as the released ones. Now, there are a few compromises made here in order to fit on all the bonus tracks. So the original longer album versions of "F.L.M.", "Respectable" and "Showing Out" are replaced by their 7" single versions. "Showing Out" is messy in the 7" edit, so for me I would have retained the album version, but over all this was a good decision to make. The Garage Vocal 12" mix of "System" is an edit when compared to the 12" version on the B-Side of "Showing Out", which is a shame. But apart from that this release is absolutely top notch. I love the attention to detail in making this a great presentation. The actually discs are picture CD's and the sleeve is reversable, so you can have the American sleeve facing front if you prefer. Highly recommended, in fact I would say this is an essential purchase.
Cherry Pop have done us proud, once again, with a superb "deluxe special edition". They have to be applauded for their continuing effort & dedication to bring us music lovers top quality releases of those long deleted, but much loved gems from the 80's.
