    Why does it matter if its remastered? I have never heard an 80s album improved by remastering, though to my ears opinion of course.

    • RJSWinchester says:

      Agreed, remastering is overrated. For a tenner I’d just buy the Heaven 17 Box set. At £2 an album, it’s a steal!

      @Mike: you must be kidding!! (no offense) :)
      Just have a listen at the incredible Paul Young 4-CD box set that Paul (Sinclair) released last year and you’ll understand how remastering should always be !! ;)
