    That is a supremely awesome track list.

  2. starhopper Says:

    Thanks Robin – one fantastic list and I am giddy to hear it!

  3. Cool, can’t wait, although it’s sad that so many songs are not there – alt mixes of ivo, pitch the baby, touch upon touch etc…

  4. i can’t wait!!
    and my music lover friends in japan too.

    thx Mr robin,you have good all ways always 🙂

  5. Robin – any chance of a 5th “rarities” type disc, to compile a few of the straggler songs that are getting increasingly harder to find these days – like the Garland bonus tracks or Need-Fire from the Judge Dredd soundtrack, just for an example?

    Cool, it’s time to get these remastered eps and singles on decent cd again…i can’t believe the difference between the original vinyls and the early cd versions…early digital transfer were horrible quality wise… can’t wait to hear all these in bright colors again.

  7. Yeah…maybe the standard versions released later
    could include Milliminary, High Monkey Monk and Need-Fire, not necessary “versions”, but at least every of the non-lp tracks.

    Cheers,

    Cedric Caspesyan

  8. great, something else to collect!

    just kidding, i’m really excited about this!

  9. wow! more gems to look forward too! its been so long since the bbc sessions, shame some of the un-released tracks aren’t there i.e. – recorded after Milk and Kisses but hey \o we can but live in hope.

  10. How about Strange Fruit?

    I’ve been listening since I first saw CT in Chelmsford, Essex, back in 1980(ish)

    Great.

  11. HOw about the song touch upn touch?
