Thanks for bringing back those memories. Loved them since the first time I heard Starchild. Got there early to get good seats. A very suave and well dressed gentleman at the next table starts to chat up my girl.
My GF introduces him to me as Lenny. Holy shit its Lenny White! We start to talk drums as I play as well and gush over Level He and his friend join us at our table to free one up for someone else and we hang all night. L42 go over like a house on fire and I have truly memorable night. Looking forward to these boxes, but it will depend on the sound and the quality of the remaster.
This band deserves nothing less than a superior sounding reissue. Not really a lover of Level 42 but I just had to praise them for the price of this set alone… Amazing value … If only others would take note!!!!! I love those boxsets, like heaven 17, no multi format, 5 extra cds with mixes — a perfect compilation!! Please go forward with vol. It seems a good price even with duty applied if it is?. Hi Wayne, no, because this is from cherry red, the one on amazon.
I will be looking forward to the second volume and hopefully the correct versions of To Be With You Again. I will take anything new Level 42 I can get my hands on. I always wish they had caught on more here in the US. I have everything they have put out that I can get my hands on here in the States.
Looking forward to this though I really wish they had included a DVD or Blu-ray of early videos, performances, etc. This is one of my groups where I wish we would get those ridiculously huge boxsets that covers every square inch of their release history from beginning until current!
Thanks you Paul for this great website and wish you and your dear ones all the best for this festive season! I thought you were referring to the Mastermix. The remix is the icing on the cake. Not the cake itself. Bye bye everybody bye bye.. Bye bye everybody bye bye. Paul, Any insight as to why the Thunderthumbs single was not included. Credits to Paul Waller for a job well done. And… this is only the first boxset to come out. Paul also mentioned that volume 2 is in the works right now.
Sorry still none the wiser…. Do not get me wrong please. Merry xmas! Happy new year! Whilst here, a Merry and Safe Christmas to you and those you love, and as ever, thanks for providing another 12 months — and what 12 months it has been — of your most wonderful, informative and entertaining website. Any idea of artwork and the box set? It would be good to see what we are getting, e. Looking forward to box 2, World Machine is one of my favourite ever albums and will be nice to hear what bonus tracks they dig up for it.
Or the other Live album from 86? This pleases me. Excited overall. Hi Paul Wallace! Haven Edits, Mixes and B-Sides on a separate disc just means you need more discs.. I do not know which version the box features but one of them is missing. If I wrong, please let me know!!!! Wings of Love UK Dancefloor is the album version so is on there. Hot Water Extended Version is in fact the album version. The album version was first known as Extended Version on a Dutch 2CD compilation released in and basically that info has been copied onto other releases since.
Almost There Full Length Version is the album version so is already on there. The Edit is also on there on the b-sides disc. Simon, thank you for your detailed comments, as someone who isnt a major fan but appears to have collected a lot of the remixes anyway — Hot Water Extended at 8. Congratulations and a big Thank You. By the way, merry xmas!
Happy new year We all need it. Do Die Hard fans hate Physical Presence? If these 2 boxes go well who knows? Am I right? Level 42 became too big that time and diferent remixes appeared all around. Regarding the missing tracks, some of it was space, some of it was licensing and in some cases the mixes could not be located in the archives. Regarding box 2 it is in progress at the moment and as I said there should be room for it all.
Thank you very very much Simon!! I wish all the best next year. Just for the record A Physical Presence is the best live album that has ever existed by any band.
Thought they would have included Freedom by Thunderthumbs or was there an album? I know they became bigger later, but this is the good stuff. Great to see it all brought together in a single well put together set with what sounds like very sympathetic remastering. Looking forward to this. Ah, the Regal in Hitchin.
Once a cinema before becoming a short-lived concert hall and recording studio the Fall recorded some of Hex Enduction Hour there, with the remainder made in Iceland. Sadly the building was later demolished, and is now a posh gated housing complex. Cheers to all involved in its creation. This has really made me happy and then some! I was a big fan of Level 42 and was in the fan club back in the day!. Still my favourite band other band besides TFF!.
Congratulations to Cherry Red for putting this forward for release wonderful!. Has cheered me up no end!. A few mixes or rarities missing I think but overall this looks like an essential purchase for me. Would have been nice if it had also included hi-res blu-ray audio. I probably have most of this material on cd and a lot of it on the original vinyl. Not too sure if the remaster warrants me purchasing unless it also contained a hi-res studio master.
Or better still, multichannel mixes. A few years back I had PC software that can produce reasonable multichannel from stereo source. Played around with it for a while using different artists with some excellent results. If memory serves, there is an option to play the songs in 5. Looks like the delivery has already slipped to March 26 according to Amazon UK.
I have all of these original albums on CD tape also back in the day! Possibly the original source for the material on this title. A unique source for confirming the vocals with maximum treble and minimum bass EQ. Also checked at a faster 45 rpm to get clearer enunciation of the lyrics. Chief to scorn his friends make love to his re-la-tions.
He beats his wife and made her life a to-tal wet va-ca-tion. All the braves and squaws and the maids and the whores. His flesh and blood he tears it up when acting right is nor-mal. Brief Instrumental Bridge: Faint Jagger chants can be heard here. What's all with us to be grown up is to be good at ly-ing.
This track was very difficult to decipher, because the mix is somewhat muddy and lyrics incoherent in places. Maybe this track and not Casino Boogie was the bands first attempt at "cut-up lyrics"! Most available recordings have a fair amount of distortion present.
Street Fighting Man is a rhythmical masterpiece. I couldn't control it. It was a learning experience. They said I have depression , schizophrenia with bipolar tendencies. It was bipolar when I was responding to 12 different impulses. I didn't hurt nobody. Suffering from mental illness and a drug problem, Baatin left the group in In an interview he stated:. When we got off the tour with Floetry and India. Arie , I was dealing with a lot of mental issues Not enough rest Jet lag.
I underwent physical ailment. I came home and said I wasn't gonna do it no more. When I tried to seek some attention, they took it like I was leaving the group. I was in a coma for a day. When I came out my coma, all my stuff was out of my condo. I lost all my cars, lost everything. And I got a termination letter from the group. After leaving the group, he began recording as a solo artist. During this period, he went by the name "Baatin the Slumlord. Baatin died on July 31, at the age of He was found in his home on Anglin Street in northeast Detroit.
J Dilla himself was slated to make a vocal appearance on the track Innovators but died before recording. In , a 7-inch posthumous single of Baatin, "Don't Stop", was released. The album was a moderate success and contained the single Tainted, produced by Karriem Riggins and featuring Dwele Also in ,'Dirty District, a compilation songs by Detroit rappers largely produced by T3 and Young RJ"Rice, was released.
The group then became a duo consisting T3 and Elzhi, when Baatin became sick while touring in France shortly before the release their album, Detroit Deli A Taste of Detroit and departed to seek treatment.
