  1. Antonio Fabbri says:

    already done on fb wall…

  2. John Elliott says:

    I need these because I’m too poor to buy them. Also, too ugly!

  3. Rafael Jimenez says:

    I love Aztec Camera/Roddy Frame from the first Postcard single.
    Yes, I’m that old!

  4. Alejandro Mayol says:

    I would love to win because I really like Aztec Camera’s music from long time already, it’s an elegant Brit Rock style, really first class music.

  5. Alfonso Saez says:

    “Love” is the first vinyl I remember to buy for myself when I was a kid. I can´t remember the reasons for this choice (Aztec Camera wasn´t a hit in Spain…), but it was touching, I discovered REALLY the beauty of music, the greatness that a tune could bring, listening to this album once and another. So it would be kind of the close of a circle to have Aztec Camera sounding again at home now that I have two childs who are starting to ask what´s on my stereo!!!!

  6. Michel Drolet says:

    I have a radio show in a community radio (it’s voluntary work) where I play this kind of music…we reach 75 000 people a day on average, a really nice way to promote these (and other) re-issues…and Aztec Camera are a really great band who should get more airplay everywere!!!
    Thank you!!

  7. Ian Ryder says:

    Well, I’ve already bought two of them (High Land….& Knife, if I win give those two to someone else), would love the rest. Have been buying Roddy’s music since the Rough Trade days (didn’t quite get on the postcard train), lovin’ Edsels reissues, Suede, JAMC, EBTG, McCulloch etc. Roddy’s solo stuff has been great too, especially ‘Winter Haven High’ from ‘The Reason For Living’ single set, up there in my all time fave tracks. That’s it really, would also love for those Postcard tracks to be collected up with maybe some early demo’s etc…..

  8. Jan says:

    I am very pleased with these deluxe editions. May this be the beginning of a Roddy Frame revival. Well done, Edsel!

  9. mike says:

    shame, can do 2 of them but as not on facebook and never wish to be, cant complete the third… have pity please!

  10. Anthony says:

    Love the Aztec Indian culture & taking pictures so this band is PERFECT for me! Can’t wait to catch up on their back catalogue….

  11. Aaron says:

    The album I started with was Dreamland. “How sweet to fly/ To touch the sky”. Really really love the book look of the reissues.

  12. Isaac says:

    I deserve to win as I met Roddy at an Unbelievable Truth gig at LA2(London.)Obviously this gives me extra hipster points and as I was the first to recognise him at the show deserve the walkover win:)
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this great looking set of reissues.

  13. Juan Luis says:

    I’d love to win this!!!!!!!

    • Sean O'Brien says:

      I loved the pop of Aztec Camera’s first couple of records. Then Good Morning Britian blew me away combining their deft lyrics with political urgency. This made me a fan for life.

  14. will rodgers says:

    would love to have these!

  15. pt68 says:

    Has any record sounded as fresh and hopeful as “High Land, Hard Rain”? These reissues look truly beautiful.

  16. Heather says:

    Its funny how men are, they can be so oblivious but somewhere in my heart I know that all I need is everything (by Aztec Camera that is).

  17. steve says:

    Seriously awesome. Aztec Camera are my fave band ever and even though I’ve probably already got all the extra tracks in one from or another, great to see them all coming out again in CD quality. Excellent!!

  18. Adrian says:

    High Land, Hard Rain is an all-time classic album. No more need be said.

  19. Richie says:

    I remember going nuts for Good Morning Britain back in the day and it was one of the first 7″ singles I bought. Would love the chance to explore more of their work.

  20. Gary Betourne says:

    I love me some Aztec Camera!

  21. Eric says:

    I love these records, particularly Stray and High Land, Hard Rain. I REALLY want to have these…

  22. eugene says:

    Latter day fan. Would love to hear the early stuff.

  23. I am old enough to have been around when these came out on vinyl, and I always thought that Aztec Camera, along with Orange Juice and the Jazz Butcher, we’re the holy trinity of quirky, ’80s singer songwriters. Plus, I have never been able to find these albums as I live in north America. So give a yank a break, eh?

  24. Yu Yi says:

    For Aztec Camera ,I have never try their music before.But recently found their albums on web,so it’s interesting thing to hear new music from an old group.And i also like the new packaging for these 6 ablum packages.

  25. Javier says:

    Would it be a good reason to win the competition the dozens of hours and hundreds of euros I spent searching and buying some hard-to-find Aztec Camera’s releases on eBay through the years? Because I still remember that 1985 US-only 10” I finally didn’t get after a tough bid with, probably, somebody from above. Anyway, this release has made my day, so I’ll be happy anyway if I don’t win…

  26. Steve (Louisville, KY, USA) says:

    Well, I’ll throw my name in the hat.
    Love the page, love Aztec Camera. Thanks for giving these re-issues some coverage!

  27. will says:

    Oh if I had a pound for everytime I enter one of your competitions and win hee haw :-( it hurts even more when it’s a ban I love like Aztec camera, being a Scot and living near where roddy frame hails from it would be amazing to win these reissues and take me back to my youthful tearaway days :-)

  28. Iain McCarthy says:

    Despite the somewhat 80s production, High Land Hard Rain is a complete classic!

  29. Brenez Alain says:

    I’d like to win as I was a big fan of Roddy Frame’s music in the 80’s and remember his humour at one concert in Brussels when he covered a Van Halen song.

  30. Alex says:

    Roddy Frame was a magical songwriter!

  31. chris says:

    I can’t wait to hear them!

  32. R.C. says:

    Oops. This is actually the email I used for the newsletter!

  33. R.C. says:

    I had been planning to make my way through the Aztec Camera catalogue and then found out these were coming. Have yet to pick them up and would be terribly glad to do so…

  34. kolleder says:

    i never win anything.

  35. John says:

    Oh, to hold these in my hands…

  36. Roelant says:

    I’m not getting tired listening to and admiring the EBTG re-issues by Edsel. That said, the boy wonders if paradise is (half as nice) the release of this batch of Aztec re-issues. Somewhere in my heart I know all I need is everything of this incredible band to accompany me on my walk into winter. I’ll jump from pillar to post and even spanish horses if I should be picked. Not in the least because oblivious is obviously the best song of the 80’s!

  37. Vince Williams says:

    I had already liked the Edsel page as they have been bringing out some great stuff recently, looking forward to this set!

  38. Eric Van Rysdam says:

    Any of you planning on buying High Land Hard Rain, prepare yourself for a really nasty digital glitch on track 15. It’s on the master they used so all CDs have it. Thankfully, it’s a remix of Oblivious and not one of the songs on the original album

    Maybe this site could look into this?

  39. Uffe says:

    Never understood their greatness, or Roddy Frame’s for that matter.
    Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate?

  40. Barry Delve says:

    I’d like to win because Love was the first CD I ever bought, back in 1987…

  41. Mikael Tjarnhammar says:

    These albums mean alot to me! I’ve been loved, dumped, drunk, happy, sad, all this and more to the sound of Aztek Camera

  42. Raymond Hovey says:

    I love Roddy Frame!

  43. Mike Smith says:

    These re-issues look fantastic, it would be amazing to win a set of them.

  44. Stanley Murgolo says:

    These look great! Edsel does a great job!

  45. dave parker says:

    Love those records and thanks for turning me on to the EDSEL page!

  46. MARK NIELSEN says:

    would love to own these —my vinyl copies are worn out!!

  47. Jim Brady says:

    Even if I dont win these, I will be buying them. My cassettes are long ago won out.

  48. Will Johnston says:

    Great comp!

  49. Ryan says:

    I like free stuff

  50. Darryl Jayson says:

    I am interested in re-listening to a great band (Aztec Camera) from the 1980’s.

  51. Henry An says:

    Aztec Camera is one of the most important bands of all time, especially in the 80’s. Roddy Frame is such a boy wonder, ahead of his generation.

    “High Land Hard Rain” is still my favorite Aztec Camera album, and “We Could Send Letters” is one of the best songs ever.

  52. Andy Taylor says:

    All I Need Is Everything!!!

  53. Henry An says:

    Aztec Camera is one of the bands that matter in the 80s. Roddy Frame is a boy wonder in his own right. It would be a great addition in my collection of wonderful and magical music.

  54. bill aho says:

    Comment below. Thanks for doing such a nice job on these.

  55. Luis Silva says:

    I d`like to win because i always love of voice of music of Roddy Frame. It is just fantastic.

  56. Paul Horrocks says:

    they look beautiful – send a set my way please !

  57. steve says:

    I saw Aztec camera at Dingwalls Hull at the time of the Hard land Hard rain tour – Roddy was incredibley young and nervous , so was craig gannon, I was able to pick up one of Roddy’s plectrums at the ened of the night of the stage. i had a few of their early albums and but never got them on cd now is a good time to start.

  58. Andrew says:

    I’d love to win because I’ve been a huge fan since the first release, way back in the time before the internet, when it was about impossible to get news in America about new releases!

  59. Michael Poulter says:

    Hard Land Hard Rain, Knife and Love were never out of my CD player in the 1980s…then again, they were never out of the player in the 90s either. Three truly classic albums full of great songs!

  60. Rob says:

    In it for the B-sides. :-)

  61. Agustin says:

    They’re part of the soundtrack to my life.

  62. Piotr says:

    I want, want , want.

  63. Rob Payne says:

    I might be in Dreamland if I won
    It would cut like a Knife if I lost
    Over High Land, Hard Rain I’ve gone
    Frestonia was my home at no cost
    But now I’ve no reason to Stray
    Love this? Send the CD’s my way…

  64. kuryakin72 says:

    I gotta have ALL of Them….even though I already have all of them….

  65. Richard Christian says:

    These would be ideal to replace my old vinyl records which are a bit worse for wear now.

  66. bob howe says:

    I love Aztec Camera and was planning to buy these reissues one a month.
    However crap government cutbacks means i have been made redundant this week. Applying for new jobs will be a lot better whilst listening to these cool tunes!

  67. Shui Juin says:

    After more than 25 years, “Somewhere in My Heart” is still the ultimate love song for me, and “The Boy Wonders” slowly became the ultimate song of youth.

  68. Lanny says:

    Would LOVE to win this!!! I adore Roddy and his voice!!! :)

  69. c alan hansen (aka craig rackley) says:

    i was a little late to the party with this band, but i’ve owned (most of) the catalog for ages. it’ll be nice to complete the collection with all the niche material too!

  70. Phil Wilson says:

    Had Love on tape when it was released, but moved on to different types of music after that. These Edsel reissues are great, really looking forward to the Deacon Blue ones, and have all the Suede ones. I love this site, and it is a sign of the times I think how much more excited I am about classic 80s 90s albums reissued than any new music that is coming out. In the month of my 40th birthday, it would be great to win these and discover some new – old music.

  71. Michael Martens says:

    Some great albums here. I’d enjoy having them in my collection!

  72. Brett says:

    I’ve loved Aztec Camera since I was 12, I still remember fondly the first time I heard ‘We Could Send Letters’ on university radio here in Australia.

  73. Piman says:

    I’d really like to win this set because :
    1. I love Aztec Camera
    2. I still got all of the albums either on LP’s or CD’s but the new packages look so nice!

  74. chris says:

    Because I’ve loved them forever and these wondrous reissues look amazing.

  75. Arnaldo D'Urso says:

    Roddy Frame is one of the most underrated songwriters of the 80s.

  76. Shawn says:

    Roddy Frame is amazing!!!!

  77. Jazzo says:

    I love this band and I am notoriously cheap.

  78. Greg Jira says:

    Stray and Dreamland are two of my favorite albums.
    I love the guitar solos. Such great records.
    Please enter me to win the set!!

  79. DavyT says:

    Been an Aztec Camera fan since day one, ob(li)viously by collection needs a major upgrade!

  80. Because this package must travel all the way to Brazil-zil-zil.

  81. Eurovision says:

    All I Need Is Everything!

  82. Devin says:

    If I win these, I’ll have something to fill that empty place in my soul!

  83. harleytexas says:

    Love the songs

  84. Gabe Lindsay says:

    I love Aztec Camera! The song Oblivious and the album High Land, Hard Rain are some of my all-time faves!!!

  85. Daniel Boccoli says:

    Cuz I don’t have a complete set of AC’s work and would love to own these reissues.

  86. John says:

    Finally reissues befitting an underrated band.

  87. Kirk says:

    Because you pick me randomly, I will win! :) Hooray!

  88. george says:

    because i met Roddy once in Argyle Street in Glasgow so a close friend obviously

  89. Rui Bairrada says:

    CDs look great!

  90. Francis says:

    I have been selling off some of my beloved old CD albums so as to update them to the newer Deluxe, Special and Expanded Editions being released by Edsel, BBR, Cherrypop and Salvo, so these would be great to win because I no longer have these until I do update, including the 12inch versions featured on them as I have also parted with their beloved vinyl records.

  91. Bob says:

    Aztec Camera rules!

  92. Chris Farrow says:

    All I Need Is Everything! – please … they look fantastic and i know will sound even better!

  93. Da'Ron Brown says:

    i’d love to win this!
    i’ve never had all their albums before!

  94. Hedley says:

    I would be willing to offer up a complete review of the Gabriel So tour at the Palace of Auburn Hills in return for these fab-gear issues.
    Thanks for offering them, much appreciated and good luck to everyone

  95. Joshua Handley says:

    I’ve heard good stuff about this band but surprisingly I’ve never listened to them. I hope I win.

  96. Yossi Barak says:

    I still have most of the albums on vinyl, but, these CDs look nice.

  97. Peter Mulholland says:

    My cousin David was the original drummer in Aztec Camera and I remember the practicing in his house. What better reason to get a complete set of the re-issues

  98. Daneil Hunt says:

    I’m really looking forward to these reissues. They should sound much better than the old Warner CDs!

  99. Barrie Phillips says:

    I have two of the albums featured but I’d love to win the set

  100. Mitch says:

    Edsel’s reissue programs this year are spectacular! The Everything But the Girl reissues included.

  101. claudio says:

    brilliant reissue!

  102. matt says:

    I’d like to win them because otherwise I’d have to buy them. Not having them isn’t an option.

  103. Hans says:

    Hello. Why should I win the complete Aztec camera set ? I really love them, I would balance on à knifes edge to get the set ewen walk the High land and conqur the hard rain in order not to stray, and really do everything for Frestonia , the dreamland of My youth.
    Hello from hans

  104. Derek M says:

    Bought the 1st album when it came out in 83…..bought the 1st cd back in 88…..on Rough Trade (no barcode)….Ive kept Mr Frame in royalties over the years…Its Payback Time!!

  105. Marko says:

    Today i received my Aztec Camera deluxe cd from edsel. I must say that i don’t really like casebound book cd or digipacks. Prefer jewel case. Right from the start cd is scratched and have some marks. This things will happen also with Deacon Blue deluxe editions. Recently, same thing happen with Icehouse reissues, even Pet Shop Boys new album. It’s suppose to be collectors edition and not scratch or marks edition. Also i don’t see any “luxurious” in those packages. I’ll want to buy new cd and not pretty litlle book with damage cd.

  106. Nolan Siegler says:

    Roddy Frame is one of my favorite songwriters of all time. Although I love his 1st 2 albums (as well as his Postcard Singles), I’m not too familiar with his later work. I would love to win this set and start listening to his entire discography!

  107. I was in the Aztec Camera fan club and wore a leather fringed jacket (god, it was heavy!) and the bootlace ties and colour clips too. It certainly beat looking like a New Romantic. I’d love to win this wonderful prize so I can relive my teenage years.

  108. Achidej says:

    Dream comes true , finally can get the rare n unavailable on cd before for singles like Sonewhere in my heart !!! Must own.

  109. Dimitri says:

    I’d like to win because I really like Aztec Camera, and those packages are great

  110. Paul Chapman says:

    Aztec Camera one of the truly underated bands to come out of Uk

  111. Harry E. says:

    I’m Still On Fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  112. DLG says:

    I’d love to win a copy of all the CDs – they look amazing. My wife is a big fan, so of course I would surprise her with them – provided I am afforded listening priveleges!)

  113. Holger Meier (Lieschen Müller) says:

    I would love to win them because I always liked Aztec Camera but never bought more than a couple of singles by them.

    I would love to discover more of their music.

  114. Ben Carlin says:

    Somewhere In My Heart there is a space for these CDs!

  115. Lenny Banter says:

    Aztec Camera were the soundtrack to my 80’s. Would love to hear them again (as well as the 90’s albums).

  116. Rob M says:

    Because they made some of the best music of the 80s and are worth so much more than “Oblivious” and “Somewhere in my heart”.

  117. Jon C. says:

    I’ll admit it…I’m a sucker for complete (or complete-ish) discographies, and these will fill up a hell of a lot of holes in my Aztec Camera collection!! :)

  118. mark wilson says:

    These reissues look great.Love your site,very informative.

  119. Ludger says:

    I only have one Aztec Camera Album and would love to discover the others!

  120. Ray says:

    Would love these.

  121. David says:

    I miss the ’80s but SDE makes it seem like it wasn’t that long ago. I saw Atec Camera at Central Connecticut State University around 1988 – couldn’t believe they were playing in my backyard!

  122. Stevie Dal says:

    Roddy Frame – Greatest Scottish songwriter – EVER !

  123. B Williams says:

    Nice lookin’ set!

  124. LennyMogwai says:

    It’s a shame Oblivious isn’t heard a great deal more. I played that single until even my sister knew the words. Their cover of Jump was also a great success in annoying my less fey friends.

  125. Paul says:

    My first concert ever was Duran Duran, but my 2nd was Aztec Camera on the Knife tour in DC’s old WUST Hall(with openers Guadalcanal Diary and Tommy Keene). I’ve loved each of these bands ever since.

  126. Tyronne Mayadunne says:

    I wanna win this set cos I don’t have any of them (surely good enough reason :-)

  127. doug says:

    Definitely would love to win this! I wanted to buy them but i’m between jobs, so money is very tight these days. Fingers crossed I win!

  128. Don says:

    Yeah, these would be great to win since they’re only available as imports here in the US. Sign me up!

  129. Marcus Sigismund says:

    Does one need a reason for wanting to own good music? ;)

  130. Sandy Alonso says:

    I’d just love to have them!

  131. Marco89 says:

    I’d like to win because my ears and my eyes are greedy of good music

  132. Andy Price says:

    These look gorgeous.

  133. Manuel says:

    I just sold all the old versions so it wuold be so kind of you to send the me the new ones ;-) In case I promise to be a good guy in 2013…
