Yet more John Foxx re-issues

Postby BlackPaperCrown » Wed Apr 20, 2016 12:55 pm

I am all for recycling but John Foxx does make a regular art of it. There are now three more compilations due out. Each one has a teaser of extra unreleased tracks but how many copies of the same song can people really wish to buy?
Anyway, if you are into filling your house with repackaged CDs, you can buy the following -
A 17 track CD
with the obligatory DVD addition
the entire Island output by Utravox plus some session tracks

I guess he has to make a living somehow. Oh, the OMD remix of John Foxx And The Maths - The Good Shadow is on the 17 track CD ... I thought you might like to know

I am such a huge fan of his work with The Maths, that the lure of two unreleased songs did it for me. In a world where there might only be a single unreleased variant to salt a new Foxx comp, the generosity of 5 new tracks and a further three as bonus DLs was considerable.
