The Very Best Of Spandau Ballet: The Story / new hits package


Parlophone Label Group will release a new Spandau Ballet compilation in October.

The Very Best Of Spandau Ballet: The Story will be available as a one-CD edition or a two-disc deluxe set and takes a familiar trip down memory lane, including tracks from all of their studio albums (including 2009’s Once More) and most of the singles.

The second CD included in the deluxe edition fills in a few of the blanks from disc one (Paint Me Down, She Loves Like Diamond etc.) and shines a light on some album cuts such as Mandolin and Age Of Blows from 1981 debut Journeys to Glory. The sole remix appears to be the ‘Glide Mix’ of I’ll Fly For You. Interestingly, an early track listing published on Amazon (now superseded) featured Paul Oakenfold ‘Club’ and ‘Dub’ mixes of Gold and the ‘Remix’ of Chant No 1 (I Don’t Need This Pressure On) on disc two – all of these are now absent from the finished product.

Three new tracks produced by Trevor Horn are the probably the main draw of this new collection. The Very Best Of Spandau Ballet: The Story will be released on 13 October 2013.
