I was actually looking for something else when I stumbled across this on Amazon. I only got as far as skimming through the tracklisting of disc one before pre-ordering it while uttering little delighted squees.
Basically, the three discs are about three different eras. Disc one is Thomas Anders pre-Modern Talking. Second one is Modern Talking, third Thomas Anders solo. This could be your standard Modern Talking compilation, really. Songs are from the s and arranged in chronological order, from the first to the sixth album, reminiscent of the ordering on Back For Good — The 7th Albumbut without the new songs.
Robotafor instance? Sure, I like those songs, but of all the choices, why those particular ones? Either he just wrote the lyrics or he wrote the whole shebang. And this is a Thomas Anders compilation first and foremost, so that makes sense. Good choices, liking it.
Maybe jazz musicians or something? Now then, this is a bit The Strides - Make Your Move interesting! Some of the tracks are really good, Was Macht Das Schon (Pick Up The Phone) - Thomas Anders Und Modern Talking - Hits & Raritäten they lack a bit of oomph. This disc, however, puts together some of the best tracks of those years.
This disc is great, a real treat. Okay, kudos for having rare singles on it! Tracks are from the post post-Modern Talking era, the album This Time First of all, all these tracks came out prior to the first ever Modern Talking single. Track 9 and onwards were produced by Dieter Bohlen. The odd numbers are the A-sides to singles, the even numbers are the B-sides.
Some of them are covers of songs originally in English:. So is the whole darn disc! Most of the songs on Tongues - Regarde - Perspectives third disc have never been released on CD before now. The Bohlen songs a fan had on EPs and recorded onto a tape for me when we met up yonks ago, and I eventually found the whole lot as MP3s recorded from old, raspy EPs thanks to the very helpful fan community.
