Starflight [Live] - After The Fire - Der Kommissar: The CBS Recordings (CD, Album)

After 20 years, it's still obvious which are the awful newer versions. I'm still waiting for the "best of" disc which is winging it's way over here from the US. I gather that also has the new recordings as well. I'd like to join the other cries for a full release of the back catalogue, or at least a CD release of the original recordings of the above mentioned 3 songs.

Well, I honestly only bought this CD for the song "F," which was used from as the opening sequence of a curiosity show "Na, sowas" in Germany. That song is great! The rest isn't worth listening to, in my opinion. Although the band split in there will be a re-union from "friends" and fans of the band on 27th March in Southend-on-sea UK. The event will feature rare and unseen footage of the band in action, there will be an opportunity to meet band members and there may even be some live music maybe!!!
