I was totally blown away by this great collection of Thompson Twins' tracks!
It contains a fair amount of rare and unreleased material which were previously impossible to find.
I have been a follower of the Thompson Twins since their beginnings in 1981 right up to their final album in 1991, I have always hoped someday a collection featuring rare material like this would emerge on CD.
Rare tracks on this compilation are:
"Roll Over": This was the 'single' from 1985 which in the end, never saw the light of day, it's very sought after! A classic in it's own right! Biggest surprise seeing this here! This version is the VERY rare UK 7" version from 1985.
"Lay Your Hands On Me (12" Version)": This is the original UK 1984 12" which has never previously been available on CD and by far the best version ever!
"Hold Me Now" & "In The Name Of Love": These versions seem like either early demo versions or pre-mixes.
Also included is the b-side "Lucky Day" which was only available before on the 7" of "We Are Detective" and features Joe Leeway from the band on vocals along with lead singer Tom Bailey.
The version of the single "Sister Of Mercy" featured here is a mix which I'm almost certain hasn't been heard of before amongst the fans, and, apart from "Roll Over", another pleasant surprise!
All these rarities and also near enough all the singles including the brilliant "Nothing In Common" from 1986!
All in all, great sound quality (considering how old the tracks are now) and really nice artwork featuring rare photos makes for what seems like a MUST for anyone who would like to re-live the 80's Twins!

Another Thompson Twins compilation? As any TT fan will tell you, there are already a lot out there. Just off the top of my head we have Master Hits, The Collection, The Best Of, The Singles Collection, Hold Me Now, a few other Greatest Hits ones, a Greatest Mixes... on and on, and they all have mostly the same tracks, usually with a few variants, which means given long enough their entire back catalogue will at last be available on remastered CD. Anyway, it is criminal that their albums aren't on new digitally remastered CDs like so many other 80s acts. This compilation, however, is the best one yet, and you should choose this over all the others. It has all the greats, and the most common songs are actually here in superb alternate versions - the minimalist Sister Of Mercy and Hold Me Now being the best ones I've heard. The compilers of this album have written very praising and informative liner notes, the packaging is top notch, the sound quality is excellent and it includes the best b-side: Lucky Day, as well as Roll Over, a rarity, especially here in the UK. The Thompson Twins made superb music, buy this and wait for the albums to be re-released.

All my old 7 and 12" singles are in the loft and I don't even own a turntable anymore. But listening to this compilation made me realise what a great singles band TT were. Sure, their hair and dress sense would have made even Vivian Westwood blanch and give Andrew Collinge sleepless nights. But it was the 80s after all (you should see some of my old photos) and post-New Romanticism TT provided great pop with bass and African beats to the fore. In fact, unlike many 80s bands the music has aged very well. Standouts have to be 'Hold Me Now', 'Love On Your Side' and the weirdly appealing 'If You Were Here'. Like many of their peers who added a different spin on the 80s (Heaven 17, Scritti Politti et al), TT were a band that deserve another listen. I'm off into my loft...
