Anything for/from the U.S.A.?

Rob Maurer

I hope they remaster/improve the mastering of the 2009 reissues instead of merely recycling that material (for the albums through “Cupid’s in Fashion”, at least). That first 2 CD set, with Show Your Hands, the unreleased second album, and AWB (White Album) is a high-endy ear-bleeder, IMO.

Kenny

Bloody awful if you don’t!

Mike

Good value if you like them!
