Spandau Ballet - 12" Gold
You are gold!!!! - though not totally gold. This CD contains some excellent extended versions of Spandau Ballet's greatest hits, including a brilliant seven minute version of Gold. Unfortunately, some of the other extended tracks are also remixed and therefore do not sound as good as the original single or album versions. Another minus point is that the track listing is not in release date order. If only all the tracks were in release date order; were only extended but not remixed; and had Through The Barricades added to it, it would be one of the best CDs in my collection.
Stretched Spandau !
Some steretched versions of some old Spandau Ballet classics (or 12" as they called them 500 years ago!), some versions just have a drum solo here or there or an extended intro, but they are not over mixed. Now if I told you I only like five tracks on this collection you may think I dislike it, but to me they stand out from the dated others by a mile! "Gold","True","Only when you leave","Round and Round" and, "I'll fly for you" are the ones. (This Album was released before another favorite of mine "Through the Barricades") Classic pop music by the fab five, always dressed as if they were appearing in court straight after Top of the Pops but for a while everything they touched turned to Gold.
