Transvision Vamp / I Want Your Love 6CD+DVD deluxe set with signed print

Limited edition signed by Wendy JamesTrio of albums on CD with three further discs of remixes • Promo videos on DVD for the first time

In October Edsel will issue I Want Your Love a new 6CD+DVD deluxe Transvision Vamp box set that is available with a signed Wendy James print for early pre-orderers.

This set pulls together all three albums from the pop-punk wannabies: Pop Art (1988), Velveteen (1989) and Little Magnets Versus The Bubble of Babble (1991). The last of those three is still unreleased in the UK on CD, so this is its debut on the format over here.

Each long-player here comes with non-album bonus tracks and then three further CDs offer a wealth of seven-inch versions and extended remixes.

Also, the band’s promo videos are finally freed from the shackles of VHS and are available on the DVD included with this new package (which includes some bonus features, such as a Wendy James interview).

I Want Your Love comes with a print SIGNED by Wendy James. This is exclusive to Amazon UK and is limited to 1,000 copies. The discs come packaged within a 56-page book with notes from Alan Robinson based on new interviews with Wendy James and Nick Christian Sayer.

I Want Your Love will be released on 1 November 2019 (was 18 October).

    If you’re not bothered about the Amazon Exclusive Signed Print, (personally I’m not interested in stuff like that but realise some are), HMV UK have the CD Box Set £3 cheaper for £64.99 with free shipping, (also likely to be quicker than Amazon’s free shipping by several days) from experience.

    https://store.hmv.com/music/cd/i-want-your-love

    I’d be quick though as they are likely to sell out, (the vinyl has already).

  2. michael59 says:

    mhhh, according to amazon, the release date has been postponed until november 7 – 11… :-(

  3. Griffin says:

    I’m not a big fan. But I did buy their 2 Japanese 12”ers/Mixes compilation CD’s and their Universal Expanded Reissues. I did a quick check on Discogs and found that some of the mixes were vinyl only mixes & now available for the first time on CD *. I just hope they are from the vault instead of vinyl rips (unless no mastertapes could be located anywhere in the world & the vinyl rip is perfectly done).
    BTW I found that disc 4 is a bit poor, if you do the A-/B-Sides & Rarities, I would at least list all the singles here (14 tracks) and the rest. I think I would buy it for the missing mixes (the ones I don’t have yet) if the price is right. Unless the CD4/5/6 plus DVD will available separately ;P

    @Paul S., is there a reason why my recent comment on Janet Jackson – Control The Remixes
    is still unapproved or posted yet?

  4. Shane says:

    Guys Australia is not the only country discriminated against! They are doing the same to Switzerland except that nobody seems to give a toss. Also it’s also Amazon.com that refuses to do it. They basically deem it not worth it collecting import duties for Swiss VAT and rather stop shipping there.

  5. Mark says:

    Hi, How does someone from Australia buy this ?? We are now “able” to buy from Amazon US, But for whatever reason we aren’t “allowed” to buy from any other overseas Amazon’s ??
    I Love Transvision Vamp – I bought the Coloured Vinyl set ( off ebay !! ) – I’d really now like this CD & DVD set.
    Why is it an Amazon UK exclusive ?

    • Michael says:

      Australians are discriminated against by Amazon’s choice not to accommodate different tax jurisdictions. You need to buy this sort of thing through the more expensive route of a parcel forwarding service, such as Parcl. Or, if you don’t want a signed copy (which will be more expensive on Ebay anyway, even when the signature’s fake), you can wait for Amazon US to sell an unsigned copy.

  6. Larry Davis says:

    One last thing…I just realized there was this little-known record outside Sweden & Japan that I discovered by chance…it sounds like the lost 4th Transvision Vamp record!! It’s Swedish female singer known as Erika…she is the ex of Yngwie Malmsteen actually…she did a record called “Planet X” and it’s excellent, the Japanese version with a great Bside bonus track too…songs like “Super Sonic City”, “Neon City Lights”, the whole record, total TV…seek it out…

  7. Babakazoo says:

    Brilliant! I have been hoping for a Remaster of Little Magnets for years – plus the bonus tracks!!!! I am definitely getting this set… if only I can find a seller that ships to Australia without charging a fortune!

  8. Stephen K says:

    I only know their two stateside hits, but this looks like a great set.

  9. Charlie Waffles says:

    Can I just get the print and without the heart on it? It is a great pic.

  10. Mark G says:

    That’s a decent set, signed pic and all!

    I mean, I don’t want one, but good for those that do!

  11. Liam Bastick says:

    Zeus B. Held, the German producer associated with some of Transvision Vamp’s finest work, is highly underrated. If any of you don’t know his work, take a look around – but be careful a lot of websites about him seem to carry viruses for some reason. I didn’t even realise he was responsible for Spear of Destiny’s “Never Take Me Alive”. One of my guilty pleasures was the Marines “Say Goodbye” which was like Transvision Vamp went more pop, lol.

    One of the best gigs I ever went to was in 1987 at Warwick University where Transvision Vamp were one of the up and coming bands. I (sort of) remember getting drunk with them in the bar afterwards. Who does that these days? Good times!

    • Omar says:

      Zeus’s best work apart from the Gina X albums was his production on Fashion’s “Fabrique “ album from 1982 , which is soon due for a deluxe reissue.

    • Shai Navot says:

      Zeus B. Held produced Dead or Alive’s finest work: Sophisticated Boom Boom, which I LOVE.
      Check it out if you don’t know it.

  12. Calico Moonchild says:

    I’m quietly excited about this even though I got the Universal Remasters in 2013. I’m a bit disappointed they recycled the artwork from the vinyl boxset as I think there was a lot of potential for certain full colour shots from the archive. The third album was never on my radar but what I have heard sounds weak as water, however my mind is open to change with repeated listens and the DVD is definitely a must have. I wouldn’t have minded if they included Wendy’s solo debut and its B sides/ videos.

  13. A. Vogt says:

    Having heard all the albums, I actually think the 3rd album is by far the best, song good songs on there. The first album had a song called “Psychosonic Cindy” which is among the worst songs you will ever hear, ever! But it also had their only charting US single “Tell That Girl To Shut Up” which is okay. Funny how the songwriter guitarist never did anything in music again after this.

  14. Rare Glam says:

    I am pleased to see this band get the box / book set treatment, they have long deserved. I thought a CD box might be on the cards once Edsel re-issued the vinyl albums box set that included Little Magnets not long ago. A big shout out to Nick Christian Sayer. I played (bass) in a band with him way back in 1978 called Fan Club. Most info about him on the net and in previous re-issues seems to suggest he disappeared off the face of the earth shortly after Transvision Vamp split up but as this book set has a new interview with him, I am very glad to find he is still in the world.

    I have both the ‘Re-Presents’ 2x CD sets of Pop Art and Velveteen that carry a lot of re-mixes and 12” versions and an original German CD release of Little Magnets…’ So not sure how much (apart from the DVD) is extra to what’s on those. I want this anyway and pre-ordered it as soon as I saw it on Amazon.

    As I recall Nick was very much into The Clash, (Johnny Thunders) Heartbreakers and Lou Reed back in the day. I do remember visiting him when he lived at the ‘band house’ in Sillwood Terrace, Brighton, where he seemed to live a hermetic life constantly demoing songs on to his porta studio. That obviously paid off when he met Wendy James and got the band together, they made a great commercial take on garage rock ‘n’ roll. The song structures and lyrics are simple (as are many great songs) and so allowed Sayer to add overdubs of guitar sounds or effects (rather than lead guitar) that give them an excitement and a straight forward platform for Wendy James’s assertive vocals.

    I always felt the band had more potential to progress though. On each album they had one track that seemed to be reaching further. Listen to ‘Sex Kick’ on Pop Art, the title track from Velveteen and ‘You Put A Spell On Me’ from Little Magnets…’, they move beyond the basic r’n’r structure and point to something more experimental.

    Anyway, great this is coming out and hopefully the band will gain more retrospective recognition. If you’re reading Nick, thanks for the music!

  15. Jhonn says:

    This site is most times really good, but sometimes…I don’t know. Not one word about the new Tool CD, but about plastic pop, like TV. SDE only for the eighties (I love them also, grew up then)? Also ok. But SAW productions and similarities…really? Next time Modern Talking is to order?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      In the last week or so we’ve had Ronnie Wood, King Crimson, REM, Marillion, Marvin Gaye, Billy Bragg, Pink Floyd Ozzy Osbourne, Beth Gibbons… a decent mix I think.

    • Stuart Ansell says:

      With all due respect – that, sir, is cobblers. Paul runs a very broad church, and whilst he inevitably covers things which are to his personal taste (AND WHY THE HELL SHOULDN’T HE???), he covers a wide variety of stuff of interest to a wide variety of people. Which is surely why we all come here – because it’s a friendly site, with interesting articles and generally friendly, interesting comments.

      Now, I like a bit of Tool myself, and I’ll be trying to order a copy of the deluxe CDs when they go on sale at 11am tomorrow. But please, have a little more respect and politeness please. There it’s room for Tool and Transvision Vamp in my heart (certainly was on my bedroom wall as a teenager…).

      Be wonderful to each other.

      • Michel Kempes says:

        Ive got Tool from Amazon.com for a normal price, but i also order this one…. Musical taste for me is not limited to one style… Free your mond and give it a chance….. Serms like nithing had changed since Beatles VS Stones

      • hendry doran says:

        Have to agree with your first paragraph. I’m of the older generation (just turned 71) and many a time I have to google some of the featured artists on this website as i don’t know them from Adam. This site does not exist for me and me alone and The Beatles, Elvis , and Gerry Rafferty to name but a few of my favourites cannot appear every week. (Almost said McCartney but his record company certainly try their damnedest to have a near weekly reissue of some description).

        I visit this site several times a day and enjoy reading the comments of a mostly well informed readership.
        Keep up the excellent work Paul

    • Larry Davis says:

      Ah yes, Tool and their fanbase…I’ve known about them since “Prison Sex” & “Sober”, A Perfect Circle too, but couldn’t give a toss about them, nor do I find the band important either…I do know where they fit into the history of rock and acknowledge that, how they made prog/metal fit into alternative rock…but would I ever buy a Tool record in my life?? Nope!! Why?? New album is too expensive, I don’t have the time to dig into it when I don’t care about the band in the first place & I’d rather spend $50 on CDs by artists I truly care about…second, the band has ZERO pop sensibility…Muse & Steven Wilson both at least do while also being prog…third, their fanbase is a condescending bunch of pricks who thumb their noses at bands like TV who are highly powerpop/punk/bubblegum…heck, Bowie, Blondie & the Ramones have pop sugary centers too and Bowie’s Ziggy played up the plastic in the best way possible…I refuse to be fans of bands whose fans are conservative and against bright pop hooks!!! If Tool never existed, would my life be empty?? Nope, even though a fave artist mentioned the band in a song, her being Canadian artist Amanda Marshall…great site Paul always…

  16. Nick says:

    A nice way to start off the week! I couldn’t resist pre-ordering this. I had the first two albums and stupidly parted with them years ago.

  17. Paul Murphy says:

    Would Alan R or anyone be able to shed light on why the live tracks from the singles are absent?

  18. Rhys says:

    A small quibble, but the deluxe sets a few years ago had totally essential BBC sessions that this set lacks (Andy Warhol is Dead is a killer version particularly) – would love to have that all in one place, maybe in place of some of the mixes that could have stayed in the dust bin of history.

    • Paul Murphy says:

      Possibly leaving the room open for a Vamp At The BBC release – in addition to their radio sessions there were two rather fine BBC ‘In Concert’ shows by TV [1988 and 1991], plus some wonderful TOTP appearances and elsewhere that would make a very nice DVD.

  19. CobraBora says:

    Ordered it right away from Amazon UK.
    Hope they can still ship to Germany after the Brexit.

  20. Shane says:

    Can anyone just list who remixed the remixed tracks and extended versions, even just off the top off your head?

  21. Larry Davis says:

    Wow, been waiting for a set like this since the vinyl sets were released…been a fan since Pop Art when I was DJing college radio & my girlfriend at the time, Lenka, & I flipped over it, as the band checked all the boxes of influenced we loved…Bolan, Blondie, Joan Jett & bubblegum & punk, their Holly & the Italians cover of Tell That Girl To Shut Up kicks arse… ordered…a bonus woulda been Wendy’s solo album of Elvis Costello songs he wrote for her, but no biggie, I’ll find it used…signed Wendy pic too, noice!!!

  22. Joe Mac Pherson says:

    Ordered and done!
    Total cost, in British Pounds: 59.74
    And, according to xe.com, the free, always reliable, world’s largest foreign currency conversion site, I spent $73.84. Considering what I’m getting for my Dollars, shipped from the UK to North Hollywood, California, this is a bargain. Plus! That signed photograph! All those bonus tracks!
    Every album!
    Thank You again, Paul!

  23. Michael59 says:

    wow! i’m really impressed! even the “child of the age” track is there!!

    i posted some comment here when the 3LP version came out, making a list with possible bonus tracks and they put even more onto this box set!

    the only missing mix is the 7″ version of “if looks could kill” but who cares?! there is so many nice stuff here and i will buy this for “child of the age” alone.

    thanks to the people who were involved and made this possible! it’s great to see such release in today’s time.

    already ordered it – of course with the signed print! :-)

    • michael59 says:

      i have to correct myself: everything is here! the 7″ mix i mentioned is just labeled as such but actually the normal album version. so apart from some live b-sides really everything is included here! :-)

  24. OMAR says:

    Are these brand new remasters?

  25. Kevin says:

    Saw them live in August 1989 at St Austell. A good concert.

    Are they the only act to have a UK No. 1 Album, with ‘Velveteen’, and then have their next album denied a release in the UK by their record company?

    • bob says:

      Natalie Imbruglia had no 1 album with Counting Down The Days, the follow up Come To Life never had an official release in the UK despite featuring Chris Martin.

  26. TOM RICHARDSON says:

    Awesome package! Not a bad price too.

  27. Alan Robinson says:

    I wrote the notes for this. Wendy and Nick are really great people, very helpful and funny. This set is a MONSTER!

    • colm47 says:

      Hi Alan

      Thanks for letting us know. It looks like a lovely package.
      I bought the recent vinyl box so I’m buying this.

  28. Rick says:

    Wow. I still have my CD copy of Little Magnets Versus The Bubble of Babble I bought on sale back in the early 90s. Would love this collection, but it is really pricey for us in the states.

  29. Francis says:

    Brilliant box set! – I just hope Edsel do not go and balls it up like other releases they have issued.

  30. Michael says:

    Actually want this, but can’t order it because I’m in Australia and Amazon are too useless when it comes to different tax jurisdictions.

    • Bruce Butler says:

      Agree, although AmazonUS have backed down and now ship to Oz again. Apparently it’s not too difficult to just add 10% tax at checkout after all.
      Amazon UK however are pathetic.
