Gathering together the extended singles from 1983’s “Seven And The Ragged Tiger”, this got a release in June 1984, just as the band had started to implode.
Most fans will have these already.
“The Reflex” was mixed by Nile Rodgers and Jason Corsaro, in one of their strongest twelves.
“Union Of The Snake” funks around and feels a lot slower than I remember it and it now has a heavier guitar to my old ears. I do like Andy Hamilton’s evocative saxophone but it seems to plod along.
“New Moon On Monday” harks back to their older sound. Again great bass playing and subtle synth sounds. The Highlight track.
Okay is it me or is the Monster Mix of “Is There Something…” absolutley shocking, it’s a bloody instrumental. I remember when it came out and I bought it, smug that I was going to get a extended version of this one off song. Grrrrr still angry about it now.
The closing instrumental track is slightly remixed from the album, I think it appeared as the backing music for the VHS release of “Arena.”
