Bucks Fizz - as you've never heard them before

The original manufactured band are back with a stunning collection of their RCA recorded tracks, remastered, remixed and a few surprises thrown into the mix.

It's not just a rehash of what has gone before, the team behind this set have remastered songs to give them a fresh outlook and even some of the old album tracks have been given a new lease of life with dead endings, 'extra moments' and vocal upgrades.

From the thundering bass on Making Your Mind up, to the acoustic masterpiece that is Heart of Stone, this album has it all. Dean Murphy and Kevin Newell have once again delivered to Fizz fans and 80s music lovers a true wonder showcasing just how good Bucks Fizz were, and still are as recording artists.

2011 is the 30th anniversary of the famous eurovision win and there may just be a few more surprises around the corner. I won't go and say what tracks are different - even the fans are missing some stuff that has been given a make over because these two guys are so good at remastering!

Yes it's a bargain price for the number of tracks, but it is money well spent for over four hours of Fizz.

Experience the breadth and depth of their sound

There have been a number of compilations over the last few years, but for the first time a definitive collection of almost every track they ever released has been carefully, skillfully and lovingly compiled in one collection.
Unlike some compilations every track has not only been remastered, but also many have been taken from the original multi tracks, so that the best possible sound is achieved. They really showcase the amazing production values, attention to detail, intricate harmonies, layers of instruments and sound effects. Some of the tracks now let you hear detail previously buried in the mix that was originally released, bringing the tracks up to date, with a crisp, rich and bright sound. They need to be listened to on a decent stereo, not compressed into MP3 format!
These tracks were recorded over 8 years and the 4 discs take you on that eclectic journey, from the poppy euro sound of the early recordings to a much more mature sound, whilst maintaining the energy and uplifting feelings for the listener that are their trademarks.
The current producers are so dedicated in their own love of the music and their tireless pursuit of excellence that they have even included brand new versions of some songs, with some awesome surprises for die hard fans apparently...!
Even a casual fan of 80's music and The Fizz in particular will enjoy listening to the songs they remember and be pleasantly surprised and impressed by the rest!
At this price it will make an ideal Christmas present and leave you enough money to buy the recipient a handbag to dance around and lippy and shredded chamois leathers to pout and pose like Jay!!

Harmonies, Depth and Pzazz....

In brief, this collection brings together almost every recording from Bucks Fizz, but by far the most important element is the mastering that has been lovingly bestowed upon every track by Dean Murphy and Kevin Newell, breathing new life into all the tracks from Bucks Fizz's extensive catalogue, and providing added depth, complexity and pzazz versus previous CD releases. Those who wrote off Bucks Fizz long ago should consider hearing this collection as it highlights the vocal ability of the group, and the harmonies that stand out so beautifully on these CDs.

New consideration should be given to tracks such as Heart of Stone (which benefits from a wonderful new 2009 version), Every Dream Has Broken, My Camera Never Lies and What's Love Got To Do With It (refreshed in a new mix, recorded before Tina Turner's more famous cover).

Enjoy.
