Thread: Be Bop Deluxe question

    Be Bop Deluxe question

    Does anyone know the origins of the various bonus tracks that appear on the Be Bop Deluxe CD's? I'm talking about the series that came out in the early 90's, where each of the albums has 3 bonus tracks appended at the end. I don't think any of them are actually identified, as to being live tracks or B-sides or whatever. Anyone know anything about this?

    From BillNelson.com:
    Axe Victim:
    When reissued on CD in (Feb) 1991, EMI elected to enhance the album by adding 3 live bonus tracks (taken from the band's official live album Live! In the Air Age). Given that the live album was also part of the same reissue campaign, this was a missed opportunity, and the inclusion of the band's debut single would have certainly appealed to collectors far more.

    Modern Music:
    Extra songs on the 1990 CD:
    16) Futurist Manifesto
    17) Quest For The Harvest Of The Stars
    18) Autosexual

    All 3 are Drastic Plastic outtakes and were all previously on The Best Of and the Rest Of. "Futurist Manifesto" was the b-side to the Japan single, and was therefore on Singles As and Bs.

    Sound On Sound:
    The 2012 CD from EMI is the most extensive in content, coming as it does with all four b-side tracks from the album's two singles, plus four previously unreleased tracks recorded from a BBC 'session' (17/02/79 Friday Rock Show).

    Extra songs on the 2012 CD:
    Furniture Music b-sides:
    13) Wonder Toys That Last Forever
    14) Acquitted By Mirrors

    Revolt Into Style b-sides:
    15) Stay Young (Live at Leicester De Montfort Hall, 8 March 1979)
    16) Out Of Touch (Live at Leicester De Montfort Hall, 8 March 1979)

    Radio 1 Friday Rock Show session (17 February 1979)
    17) Stay Young
    18) Furniture Music
    19) Don't Touch Me (I'm Electric)
    20) Out Of Touch

    This 2012 edition was remastered (using the 1999 remaster), includes new liners notes, and contains a nice selection of photos from the time period.

    Although overall the sound quality is an improvement over the previous CD issues, the album version of "Stay Young" on this edition suffers from a what appears to be a 'drop out' introduced in the remastering process.

    Quit Dreaming and Get On The Beam:

    Note that all of the bonus tracks on the Mercury reissue, except for "Birds Of Tin", had previously appeared on the Cocteau compilation The Two Fold Aspect of Everything.

    Extra songs on the 2005 CD:
    14) Mr. Magnetism Himself (Banal B-side)
    15) Living In My Limousine (12" remix)
    16) Birds Of Tin (Living In My Limousine B-side)
    17) Love In The Abstract (Living In My Limousine B-side)
    18) Be My Dynamo (Youth Of Nation On Fire B-side)
    19) Rooms With Brittle Views (non-album single, then Youth Of Nation On Fire double single B-side)
    20) All My Wives Were Iron (Youth Of Nation On Fire double single B-side)
