tracklist 01 Heaven Sent 02 Never Give Up (Party, Party) 03 Adoration 04 Stolen Love 05 Don't Rush In 06 Blue For You 07 In The World 08 Justice 09 Work Together bonus tracks 10 Heaven Sent (NY Remix) 11 Blue For You (NY Remix) 12 Never Give Up (NY Remix) 13 Stolen Love (NY Remix) 14 Justice (NY Remix) The five bonus tracks are taken from the 1984 mini album New York Remix, mixed by Bruce Forest. The CD runs for 70 minutes, and features a full artist biography as well as the original Benoit Hennebert artwork. The only downfall of this release is that the original 1983, 12" release versions of "Heaven Sent", "Never Give Up (Party, Party) & "Justice 82" are not included on this CD, these versions possess much more energetic and are true to the album version (as 12 versions were in those days).
If you like Paul Haig......this is for you, I bought this to replace my old vinyl copy of the British release. The inclusion of the extra tracks IS a bonus for someone who didn't have them on the original.
