This is a review for the 2013 expanded edition of Velveteen.
First the extra tracks:

Baby I don't care - Abigail's party mix
The only one - Extended mix
Landslide of love - Extended mix

These versions of the songs are fine, but for myself I would have much preferred an extra demo or live track, than remixed or extended editions of the songs,

Sex Kick - Demo (B-side of Baby I don't care)
Saturn 5 - Demo (Baby I don't care CD single)

The demo of Sex Kick is pretty close to the version that appears on Pop Art, but Saturn 5 is as far as I can tell a pervious unreleased track, an up tempo indie punk song, similar to Revolution Baby, good stuff.

Down on you - Live version (B-side of Born to be sold)
Last time - Live version (B-side of Born to be sold)
Recorded live at Glasgow, Barrowlands by Radio Cylde Mobile, 21st June 1989

Demonstrating that the band could cut it on the live circuit, it's the Stones version of "The Last Time" but with a nice punky guitar riff, if you going to do a cover of a famous song you should try and mix it up a bit, instead of a Karaoke-cover, which TV achieve.

Time for change (B-side of Baby I don't care)
Strings of my heart (B-side of Baby I don't care)
The Mystery song (B-side of The only one)
Love me (B-side of The only one)
W11 Blues (B-side of Landslide of love)
Hardtime (B-side of Landslide of love)
He's the only one for me (B-side of Landslide of love)
Kiss me (B-side of Born to be sold)

Excellent selection of non-album songs, with a lot of them having a more stripped down feel, which gives a nice balance to the big production sound of the album tracks.

This album is easily in my top ten albums of all time. It is surprisingly varied and represents Transvision Vamp at their peak. I'll try and give you a brief track by track precis of this brilliant album;
Baby I don't care - A great barn stormer of a track. Lyrics that really cut through a wonderfully heavy guitar riff.
The only one - another brilliant tune that has a great tune. Full of the classic TV raunchiness.
Landslide of love - A medium paced song with Wendys voice cutting through with that delightful clarity.
Falling for a goldmine - A slow moving song with lots of breathy lyrics and a wonderful chorus.
Down on you - a heavy guitar and synth song with piercing lyrics. Superb.
Song to the stars - a delightfully silly piece thats nice and slow!
Kiss their sons - a really heavy track with guitars and synths and those cutting lyrics. Brilliant.
Born to be sold - quiet (compared to the rest of the album) ditty with superb lyrics and good tune with a good twangy guitar in the chorus.
Pay the ghosts - Good heavy drums with a lighter guitar on top - pure joy.
Bad valentine - a slower ditty with the wonderful breathy voice of Wendy - oooh sexy!
Velveteen - All I can say about the title track (which is the last track on this album) is that it is 9 min 51 seconds of pure genius. Velveteen is a surprisingly complex song comprising of quiet parts and the bit about 2:49 into the track is absolute magic. Its worth buying this album for the title track alone. Exquisite - the best track of all time.

For a period in the late '80s, Transvision Vamp seemed to be everywhere in the U.K. Mainly, it was lead singer Wendy James and her sex kitten image on the magazine covers. Velveteen was the band's second release of their Blondie-like bubblegum rock. It will never go down as a great album, but Velveteen has its own definite charms. James' vocals are hardly impressive, but they are endearing in a childlike manner. It's a style that fits the simple fun of the lyrics on the stomping "Baby I Don't Care" and the new wave rocker "Kiss Their Sons." It's hard not to want to scream along with the choruses. "The Only One" is hyperkinetic with a slight disco touch. The lack of ideas catches up to them as the second half starts to sound familiar, but they close things strongly with the epic-length title track. Strings lend a bit of drama to a song that shifts from pummeling, tribal rock to dreamy pop to garage band rock to quasi-lounge music with James giving one of her better vocal performances. Velveteen is an enjoyable and effortless listen.
