  1. Joe says:

    Delayed until July 13th.

  2. Mark says:

    Was really hoping to see an extended version of Godsend included in this set. I have looked everywhere for a 7 min version that someone has uploaded to Youtube. I’m beginning to wonder if its made up.

    • Joe says:

      Yes, it’s fanmade. The same person did an extended version of ‘Rescue Me’ using the LP Version & Instrumental.

  3. Do we know who’s doing the remastering? The first two albums didn’t sound great on the Cherry Pop reissues, so I hope they will sound better this time around. :)

  4. Gav says:

    Omg! Moan moan moan!!!
    If you whingers on here werw actually real 5 Star fans, you would have ALREADY purchases all the Cherry Red re-issues and have the remastered vocal mixes.
    This new set just very almost completes the package for the real fans that already own the Cherry Red releases. Im hyped for this!!
    P.s… Problematic? Not fussed, kinda think it sucks if im honest

    • John says:

      There really is no need for such anamosity. I’ve been a 5 star fan since 1985 and do own the Cherry Red re-issues. However, my point of view is different to yours, I would still prefer the remastered vocal mixes together in one place. For me, personally, I’m not interested in dubs/instrumentals. A difference in opinion doesn’t automatically mean someone is in the wrong, moaning, whinging, complaining or not a true 5 star fan. It simply means they’d prefer something different on a definitive collection. I’m glad you’re hyped for this and looking forward to enjoying all the dubs and instrumentals. It’s just not for me.

    • Francis says:

      You are obviously ‘made of money’, unlike many people, if you can afford to buy a box set that duplicates 6 albums that have already been reissued. As for myself, and probably many others, I can not afford or am not willing to buy a box set just to gain 2 discs of mainly instrumentals and dubs when all the previous content from the earlier reissues, especially all the original 12″ versions and extended remixes, could have been so easily added to make the box set totally complete and not the “Definitive Anthology” it is meant to be. As for us “moaning”, as you so rudely refer to it, we are entitled to our opinion as much as you are. Maybe you have money to waste, where as I and others do not. Also you assume everyone must have the previous reissues, where as maybe they do not.

  5. NM says:

    Anyone got any idea why the Lew Hahn New York Vocal Mix of If I Say Yes wasn’t included? I get the feeling that it’s the one mix that a lot of people were hoping to see included.

    • Anthony says:

      NM – That cassette-only mix was a case of ‘tried and failed’. It couldn’t be found in time for whatever reason, so yes, along with Problematic, it would’ve been a really great inclusion, I agree. If the demand is there, maybe there’s a slight chance another package can be considered… and that mix can be included there, if it can be found of course.

  6. Griffin says:

    @Lee Anderson/Joe/Andrew/Cal M, I agreed!

    Cherry Red should bundled their reissues + remixes anthology so people can get all the 12” vocal mixes with one purchase. I just hope THIS set could be a little bit cheaper. I’m buying this set just for the dub/instr/missing mixes from Cherry Red reissues. Perhaps I’ll wait for the deal alert from Paul S. hahaha. CD singles boxset is also welcome, just include Problematic (7”/12” mixes).

    • mike says:

      Cant help thinking the Dubs should and might come out in their own right as Remix Anthology volume 2?

  7. Lee Anderson says:

    Francis et al that are complaining regarding the vocal mixes. You have had them already on the Cherry Red re-issues. I can bet you my whole 5 star collection that had this box set contained all the mixes already released you would also be moaning, so they can’t win. If you actually took time to listen to some of the dubs and instrumentals you might actually discover some of the essence of the remixers of this time – the Somewhere Somebody Dub Remix is one of the best remixes produced for 5 Star. So if you want the vocals, purchase the Cherry Red issues – this is for completists to have these vinyl only mixes and b sides available digitally. There’s also more to come following some extra mixes that were submitted too late, so we could potentially get a singles box set containing all the vocal mixes you crave, yet i’m sure there will be complaints over that as well because it’s another release. Be happy someone is actually investing some time in this underrated group.

    • Larry Davis says:

      Actually, I don’t have ANYTHING 5 Star in my collection, and I was curious enough to preorder the box to investigate…as it has most of the albums…and 1 disc of 7″ versions and 2 discs of 12″ versions and a DVD of videos…sounded great until I saw the tracklistings and saw the 12″ discs are just dubs and instrumentals… THAT was a deal breaker for me…sure it’s great that people are investing money in them with reissues and this box… BUT the 12″ discs should ONLY be vocal mixes, no matter if they were released before…so were the albums?!?! But 2 discs of dubs and instrumentals (mostly) was a bad move…should be saved for that CD singles boxset that was just proposed instead…those 2 discs in the box are no better than to be played once…a total slog…then placed in the box forever… I know my taste, and I lost total interest…at least I knew in advance rather than pay for the set, it arrives and I regret my purchase in the first place…

      • Joe says:

        So for those of us fans who have collected everything should pay extra for the boxset, which it would be, if it was further expanded to add stuff already released?

        This is a boxset for completest as an accompaniment to the stuff Cherry Red released. Labels already get a load of flack for churning out the same stuff time & again, with mainly the same mixes to, only add 1 or 2 exclusives. This is Edsel actually listening o the fans and giving most of them what they wanted.

    • John says:

      Paul asked the question, are you happy with the track listing? I commented I wasn’t and clearly you are. I’m not complaining or moaning, I’m just answering the question Paul posed.

    • Francis says:

      I do not want to buy this boxset and end up with all the albums duplicated which is what will happen! I am not made of money like some!!!

  8. SimonF says:

    So let me see if I’ve got this right; if I buy this and the Cherry Red 12″ CD collection I will have everything that matters. I don’t want to buy the albums seperatly whatever bonus material might be on them. I’ll download this track listing and go through it and the 12″ collection with a fine tooth comb (whatever that means) before making a final decision. But for now, count me in!

    • SimonF says:

      Bugger. Looks like getting hold of the Cherry Red 12″ mixes could be a problem. No one appears to have in stock any more. Not even e-bay! Maybe a re-issue could be arranged? Over to you Cherry Red…

  9. Andrew says:

    Great to see so many Dubs and Instrumentals. Lots of versions missing from the previous reissues

  10. Alan says:

    Not sure that I will be paying an extra £9 for the signed copy of the set. Any idea why such a large difference in price.

  12. John says:

    Personally I’d have preferred newly remastered versions of the main vocal mixes to be included not all these dubs/instrumentals. I won’t sit down and listen to dubs. So for me, I’m out, not paying top wack for two discs of them. I’ll have to make do with my Cherry Pop editions. Shame.

    • Francis says:

      I totally agree with you. I think they have made a right balls up of this boxset leaving off all the main vocal 12inch extended versions and mixes. I will not be purchasiung this box set however good it looks.

  13. Bobby says:

    Since we didn’t get either concert or any BBC performances, I’m really hoping we do get the full “Strong As Steel” video too. But glad to hear the videos will be better quality. “If I Say Yes” was awful quality on their “Performance” dvd set. Anyway very much looking forward to this – I’ve ordered two. Hoping at some point we could release their last two albums and their first single “Problematic”. Also hoping for a cd single box set – they have a huge and colourful back catalogue with some great picture sleeves which capture the whole decade (and early 90s) perfectly. And lastly of course the concerts on DVD – especially their Children of The Night 1987 Ultrabrite one. Lots still to do with Five Star!

  14. Francis says:

    All the main 12inch extended versions and remixes that would have been on the original A-Sides have not been included but instead we get dub and instrumentals. I will not be buying this but will stick to the album reissues and the anthology remixes collection.

    • Larry Davis says:

      Just cancelled my order…and preordered the new Ben Folds “Brick” box instead… I now feel a sense of relief…

      • paul widdows says:

        I cancelled my order aswell,not happy with the tracklist. A wasted opportunity in my opinion. They should have done what they did with the dead or alive boxset and included all 12inch mixes etc

  15. Larry Davis says:

    What’s with all the “DUB” versions and instrumentals?? With remixes, I prefer original 12″ extended versions with the song structure intact…I am not big on dub mixes at all without the original 12″ included…because dubs usually do not include vocals at all, just sections looped…they should have really included the original MAIN 12″s over dubs and instrumentals…I don’t want to have to purchase a separate remix collection to get them!! This set should be one-stop shopping, period!! If it is the case, I may land up cancelling my order completely…I do not want 2 discs of dubs and instrumentals, period.

    • Francis says:

      I totally agree. Dubs are just remixes with lots of the singing removed and instrumentals with all of the singing removed – BORRRRRING!

  16. SimonP says:

    Why can’t they do a decent band like Loose Ends instead?

    • Larry Davis says:

      That would be cool…I’d buy that…

      • SimonP says:

        I’ve had the 2011 deluxe of So Where Are You? on my Discogs wantlist for about 5 years now! Never thought it would go out of print so quickly.

  17. Griffin says:

    The tracks I thought they were omitted are back on. So I will (pre) order it. I think it’s a licensing issue. If Edsel are repeating the Cherry Red bonus tracks/remixes this boxset won’t be green-lighted! I’m glad we Five Star fans can own all the mixes/dub/instr now. Just hope they will release Problematic 7”/12” as CD-single instead of downloads only. Or even better to put them on a CD & included it in the set as a bonus for people pre-order it like the S/A/W singles box vol. 1

  18. Daniel ( from Berlin ) says:

    For me this is a perfect box set after the 5 star “remix anthology”. Mostly the dubs and instrumentals were forgotton on most re-releases. Here is what i want to have to complete my 5 star collection. Ordered! And many thanks for the very good selection.

  19. Steve says:

    It’s not really “Definitive” when they’ve purposely left off all the key remixes

  20. Yani P says:

    Im sure I saw these at one of those 80s revival gigs a good few years ago and there were only 3 of them on stage !

  21. Samira says:

    Fantastic . Thanks so very much Denise Pearson. It’s worth waiting to get something like this. . Everything is Fantastic. Thanks so very much again Denise for making this affect.

  22. Alvin says:

    To me this should live up to its name. DEFINITIVE ANTHOLOGY. In order to do that it should either contain the very best of the band or be complete. It contains offcuts from another labels reissues. Probably left off because they weren’t that good. As for not revising stuff, why are the original albums included then? Waste of time. Massive mess up. Like the group in its current form of Deniece and four imposters.

  23. John fairbrother says:

    Would have been nice to finally have a version of the Peter pan medley included in this set
    Could also have included it track that was released for download from Amazon some years ago

  24. Corey says:

    Love the collection but wish there were some new remixes commissioned to make this collection extra special. A 7th Heaven, Matt Pop, Initial Talk, Cahill, Paul Andrews, 7md Remix of various hits would’ve been amazing

  25. Kauwgompie says:

    As far as the mixes on disc 8 and 9, these are all unavailable on the Cherry Pop album reissues and Remix Anthology except for 2 songs. “If I Say Yes Dub Mix” from disc 8 is also on the Remix Anthology where it’s called “Lew Hahn US Dub Mix”. The timing is 6’05” vs 6’03” so I’m assuming its the same mix but perhaps not? The other mix is “Whenever You’re Ready Crazy Dub Jammy” from disc 9. That is also available on the Remix Anthology however the timing is different. On the box set it’s 6’13” but on the Remix Antholgy it is 5’12”. So overall very little duplication.

    Not sure if the two remix discs are enough for me to buy the box set as I already have the Cherry Pop reissues and Remix Anthology. If history means anything, a Deal Alert from Paul will probably pull me in.

      The ‘If I Say Yes’ should be the Pettibone Dub Mix, which is the same length as the Lew Hahn one. They are aware they are different so it should be the mix not on the ‘Remix Anthology’.

    • Anthony says:

      If I Say Yes [Dub Mix] should be the Shep Pettibone dub from the UK 12″, not the Lew Hahn US Dub Mix, but both have similar run times. Whenever You’re Ready [Crazy Dub Jammy] was edited on the Remix Anthology and not the full length mix. A similar thing happened with Are You Man Enough? [Shep Pettibone 7″ Mix]. The Remix Anthology has an edit of the 12″ mix, faded out at around 4:25, but here on the new box set, it’s the correct 7″ version, with a dead end, that appeared on the US 7″ at 4:15 .

        Anthoney, thanks for explaining that. You seem to have been involved in this release. I want to thank you for not blindly throwing a bunch of crap on there but actually taking the time to see what is already available and offering tracks or remixes that currently aren’t available. Great job, there is very little to complain about here which is rare! Just wanted to add to do some quality control so Demon doesn’t repeat the mistakes they made w the Dead Or Alive (otherwise excellent) boxset.

        • Adam says:

          I hope people aren’t disappointed with the DVD quality. Even after they were supposedly fixed, I thought the quality of the promo and TOTP DVD on the Dead or Alive set was lamentable.

    • Lee says:

      Hi. There was a Shep Pettibone dub of If I Say Yes which was just called ‘Dub’ so I’m hoping that’s the version here. Also the USA had a slightly longer version of WYR crazy dub jammy so maybe this is the other version.

    Disappointed they missed “Going Live! Phone Call (feat Eliot Fletcher)”

  27. Lee Anderson says:

    No surprises :( Order remains as more or less per original track listing but don’t understand the omission of Let Me Down Easy (B side of If I Say Yes), seems to be the only one missing now.

    • Joe says:

      It will be on the boxset, they just haven’t added to the list. I am sure they will update.

    • Anthony says:

      Oh that’s definitely on there, DISC 2 should be as follows;

      BONUS TRACKS
      11. Sky 04:15
      12. Summer Groove 05:26
      13. Let Me Down Easy
      14. (How Dare You) Stay Out Of My Life 04:24
      15. Stone Court 03:46

    This may sound strange, but for me, those great little (usually quite short) instrumentals often bound on their 12″ b-sides were actually the best Five Star had to offer. At least, they showed me that there was more to them then just delivering hit singles……especially, since many of those IMHO didnt deliver at all……after circa 1987…….

    No BBC performances then. Shame.

    • Anthony says:

      I know! BBC performances would have been brilliant, but it’s very expensive at the end of the day, and on this occasion, it just wasn’t feasible. What there is however, is every non-album b-side on CD for the first time, every alternate 7″ version together (and at the same volume finally!) and lots of dubs, edits and instrumental remixes from the likes of Shep Pettibone, David Morales, PWL’s Phil Harding, etc., which makes this set a nice companion piece for any fans of Five Star who already purchased both the individual Cherry Pop album remasters and the Remix Anthology 2CD from a few years back, too. There’s very little crossover/overlapping of bonus material, thankfully. Nothing worse than re-buying the same additional content! The DVD should present the videos in a much better quality than the Performance stand alone DVD title, which relied on VHS transfers for the most part.

      • Derek Burgess says:

        Are they the full length versions of the videos? Strong as steel is edited on Performance.

        Was really hoping we would finally get the Peter Pan medley studio version.

        • CJJ says:

          “Are they the full length versions of the videos? Strong as steel is edited on Performance.”

          I came here to ask the exact same thing.

          • Anthony says:

            Derek Burgess/CJJ – The videos have been transferred from the original tapes, which there’s even a photograph of on the inside booklet. Therefore, they should be in full and an improvement on the previous DVD. I haven’t actually seen them personally, but am hopeful!

            Derek Burgess – The Peter Pan Medley could not be cleared for use on this release, sadly. It was attempted, however.
