I bought the 12 inch single for Bela Lugosi’s Dead at Fred’s records in St. John’s, Newfoundland in the eighties and it remained a treasured item in my collection until it was lost, left behind, stolen, loaned out, whatever. I accepted that that item was lost to time and likely irreplaceable. Hence my utter shock to see that I will once again hear this evocative masterwork on vinyl along with an extra three tracks. I recall Boys was included on the B-side of that long list single. Thank you! skritti

It's not the 1st time Daniel Ash reimagined his past music endeavors. He quite expertly used contemporary electronics, Stripped was my favorite example of that. But Poptone teleports you right into his sound roots for nostalgic euforia. So mesmerizing to hear these dearest to my ear songs being neatly enhanced & performed by new team, incl. David Haskin's daughter. Studio version of Slice of Life is a great surprise, since Ash performed it under Tones On Tail umbrella only live in 1984. Symbolic ‡ Tentacles
