5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Anniversary SOS! Thank you for 25+ great years., 14 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's Better To Travel [2CD Expanded Edition] (Audio CD)
Since 1987 I've been a fan and always looked for when they'd be in the States or wherever in the world I happened to be. Finally, this summer, after 26 long years the "stars lined up" and I got to see this group in Detroit, Michigan USA. Absolutely worth every minute I waited and I never wanted the night to end. Obviously it did but wanting to keep the magic alive I kept looking online for more interviews or items concerning the group. To my surprise I came across the release of this anniversary album. It was never released in the USA market nor is it available through Amazon USA. But luckily Amazon UK came to the rescue and sent it quickly "over the pond" to me. The cost with currency conversion, VAT and shipping was still in line with what I'd pay locally for a special release such as this. What a small world it is - Thank you Amazon!
Now to the album - You must have it... absolutely must! Even if you own the original release - buy it. The songs are as strong today as they were 26 years ago. The best description I've heard for the musical styling of SOS is cinematic jazz pop with a soul and it started here with this album. The remastering was skillfully accomplished and with the additional B-Sides/alternative mixes/extended versions we get a special opportunity to hear more of the extensive creative sides of Andy Connell and Corinne Drewery.
I can not wait for the next time to see them live.
