A great album from start to finish. Long wore this out on vinyl so was great to find that after years of searching for this it was finally available on CD. I purchased the Gott Discs version of the CD but to my dismay they have replaced the re-recorded (1985) version of Straight Forward that was on the Power and Passion vinyl with what I am sure is the original version of Straight Forward (1982) from the Plug It In album
I see from a recent reviewer here that this version released by BGO has done that too! What a wasted opportunity. The 1982 version of Straight Forward doesn't compare to the 1985 version of the song. The infectious bluesy riff is not there and is more akin to a demo tape sounding block chord riff and while the stop start chorus may work live it doesn't really work on record. Don't just take my word for it check out You Tube for a posting of the 1985 vinyl version. Can we have this album properly restored on CD.............please?
