Just a note mentioning that the 7xCD “Wild Life” set from Visage was limited to just 300 copies [now they tell us!] with only a tenth of those left as of an hour ago, so if you have an interest, click here and buy immediately. You could pay £49 now or a lot more later on. After I posted, more data was forthcoming on the various CDs and only the single CD [disc 1] “Wild Life” featured what we’ll call the Universal Masters of ’80-’84 Visage material. Every other track on all the other discs consists of re-recorded versions made by the final band lineup. Since I already have the Universal material nine ways to Sunday, this excites me terribly, even as others have registered dismay at still not having that material on CD. As it was the licensing issues at Polydor US behind this, I suggest complainers focus their attentions to them instead of the band! As for me, I am positively thrilled that I will be receiving six new CDs in the mail soon featuring that amazing band re-working the material for something new to these ears! My Robin Simon CD collection just doubled!
