I don't own that boxset so can't speak to those tracks essentialness or not but the live EP is fairly enjoyable not too hard to track down on vinyl if you need it though.

    then it is missing more recent remixes of red shoes tracks from their respective singles but not a huge loss.
    Oh yes...Shoedance...(shudder)

    Sorry if this has already been addressed above, but what is the point of having rarities discs of 31 and 36 minutes each rather than all on one disc?

    I would guess that was done so the CD and vinyl packages would match. But even for vinyl those are short timings, which makes it even more baffling that they would do an almost-comprehensive set like this and leave out such significant tracks as "The Empty Bullring" and "Not This Time." (I am not familiar with "Ken.")

    "Ken" is a comic synth-rock/AOR pastiche. It was actually made for a Comic Strip Presents parody of Charles Bronson-style action film - about Ken Livingstone! It's rather a slight song, IMO, but it's still strange that they would choose to leave it out. If anything, they could have included all of the cues she wrote for that episode.

    Probably for some reason Kate didn't want to include those tracks. RE: The Empty Bullring, I'm thinking it has to do with her lyrics. Maybe because there was very little bullfighting ever in Italy, but she seems to imply the title character is an Italian bullfighter. Or maybe she just doesn't want to reference bullfighting at all. Would love to find some explanation for it in an interview...

    The box has arrived. That was pretty good, only took about a week to get here from France. I suppose I'll be spending some time with it tonight.

    is this virtually the same as This Woman's Work collection?
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Of course, there are newer albums that weren't included in the earlier box set. If you read all the posts, you'll see that there are also some "rarities" that weren't in This Woman's Work, and some that were in that box that aren't in the new releases. I'm not getting the new stuff, I have enough of KB's rarities.

    Out of curiosity, am I the only one who opened their Remastered 1 box, and found that the CD's weren't quite in the correct chronological order? The first five were arranged from left to right in chronological order, but then the next one on the right was The Red Shoes, then The Sensual World. Did that happen to everyone or did I "get lucky"? I think I'm gonna keep them in that order, just for OCD purposes (or maybe that's the opposite of OCD, someone with OCD would probably open the box and have a conniption because the CD's were in the wrong order).

    I just checked and mine is like that too. I hadn't noticed. Do the CDs have catalog numbers that are out of sequence?

    Only the last two digits on each CD is different, but they descend as you move forward chronologically, i.e.:

    The Kick Inside: 86
    Lionheart: 79
    Never For Ever: 62
    The Dreaming: 55
    Hounds Of Love: 48
    The Sensual World: 31
    The Red Shoes: 24

    That seems a little curious to me, you'd expect the numbers to ascend as you moved forward chronologically. Or at least, I would expect it, but then I'm reputedly "different", and besides, most people don't think about that kinda stuff.

    So I wonder how the The Sensual World and The Red Shoes got swapped around like that. I assume they packaging plant uses a machine to put these things together. Perhaps that day, the CD's were loaded into the machine with the discs in that order, and nobody noticed that those two CD's were out of order. I imagine all units that were packaged that day or that week or whatever, all have the same out of order CD's. (shrug)

    Or maybe somebody (Kate?) is doing it deliberately to mess with our heads. (as if there's not enough people messing with my head already)

    ^ What do you want from Fish People? It's perfectly fine to leave it the way it is if that feels better.

    BTW, don't ever order a Chinese bootleg box set - the CDs aren't in any kind of order, they're just stuffed in randomly.

    So I finally finished listening to the entire remastered 1 set today. I guess this is old news to most of you guys, since this is just the regular albums that have always been available, but I really dug listening to them. As I said, Kate's one of those people I always meant to explore her music more closely, but never got around to it. Some good music on all those albums. She's another who walked away (at least temporarily) at the right time, as I don't hear any weak music on any of those records.

    So, what do you guys think of the stuff that's on the second box? In particular, what about the B-sides? Is there anything that's relaly important, or what? I recall reading in one of the Pink Floyd books I have (in fact, I had to get it out to check the reference) that there was a B-side on the Army Dreamers single that David Gilmour played on, I'm curious to hear that. And I'd like to hear Experiment IV again, I seem to recall that was a pretty good tune too. What about the others?

    Experiment IV is really good
    another B-side that has always been an absolute fav of mine is Under The Ivy

    beyond the bonus discs I think aerial and 50 words for snow are very strong albums and worthy of standing with the originals. if you like live stuff before the dawn is a solid show. director's cut is more polarizing and I would say it is definitely unessential but I don't mind it.

    Last night I listened to side one of Hounds of Love with some and the lights low. It had been a while and the latest remaster sounded great. Just great songs, but perhaps ones where you needed to be in the right place at the right time when they were released. Sounds like prog to me (Mother Stands for Comfort?) but YMMV.

    There is also a separate rarities box now with "The other Sides" (4CDs).

    I'm not sure if it is the same as the CDs in the second box.

    It seems to be the same: https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/det...995138?lang=en
