Hi folks ,having bought the first set of remasters in the two set form,i am wondering where to start with the next five. I would love to buy the lot, but money is tight at the moment,so i was looking for a bit of guidance which you think offer the best sound and bonus tracks. I have already purchased the second in the deep cuts series,which i am enjoying,your views would be interesting.Cheers.

Buy "News of the World", it's the only CD with 5 interesting extra tracks that have not been available (also in this quality) before. "The Game" just has 4 Minutes of "new" material in form of two outtakes that you may listen to once or twice and then never again.....

Hot Space.

Because it has an awesome live version of Action This Day. Much better than Milton Keynes!

I don't think NOTW is the most interesting, spread your wings and my melancholy blues quality is pretty much the same as the ones I have from snowproducciones, only for feelings feelings, and sheer heart attack live....

NOTW - it's a great album, and for Feelings - or Jazz - the sound of EMI remaster from 1994 is awful.

OMG.
The Live tracks are a complete waste of time and space and would, quite frankly, have been better left OFF the bonus EPs.

Had they been "interesting" songs from, on the whole, concerts that have NOT been officially released already, that'd be a different matter. As it is I feel cheated at having to buy the double CD sets just for one or two PROPER "unreleased" tracks per album.
As it happens Hot Space is the easiest decision to make: single CD set.
