Title - 'All That Jazz (Deluxe Edition)'
Artist - Breathe
Breathe were an English pop rock group that formed in the early 1980s. Originally a larger, five-person band called Catch 22, all the members were childhood friends. Indeed, they released this album, All That Jazz way back in 1988 and it contains (of course) their two best-known UK chart hits, 'How Can I Fall?' and 'Hands to Heaven.'
Actually, the former charted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #3 and the latter at #2 that same year. And at #4 on the UK Singles Chart. Another single such as 'Hands' also ranked inside Billboard's 1988 Year-End Top 10 at #9.
Now here in 2013 and it has been given the deluxe edition treatment to celebrate its 25th anniversary. This quite incredible (especially if you're a fan, much like myself) 2CD collection features 33 tracks. Including the original 11 song album plus 15 tracks that make their appearance on CD for the very first time anywhere!
In fact, the bonus material featured here contains all the single versions, non-album b-sides, and as many remixes and alternate versions that could fit across 2 CDs! Stunning, simply stunning!
Disc 1 kicks off with 'Jonah,' before heading into the title track before we then get 'Monday Morning Blues' and then the big hit single 'Hands To Heaven.' Next up is 'All This I Should Have Known,' which is followed by 'Don't Tell Me Lies,' 'Any Trick,' 'Liberties Of Love,' 'Won't You Come Back?,' and rounding out the original album, both 'For Love Or Money' and the other hit single, 'How Can I Fall?'
What we then get next are some 7" versions of the same songs (!) and some radio mixes. Such as 'Don't Tell Me Lies (1986 UK 7" Version),' 'In All Honesty (7" Version),' 'Jonah (1987 7" Version),' 'All That Jazz (Radio Mix),' 'Any Trick (Like A Monkey Radio Mix),' 'Jonah (1988 7" Version),' and then both 'How Can I Fall? (Single Version)' and 'Don't Tell Me Lies (1989 US 7" Version).
Disc 2 provides us some non-album tracks, b-sides and more, and begins with 'Moments (Bonus Track Non-Album B-Side),' 'Take A Little Time (Bonus Track Non-Album B-Side),' 'Stay (Bonus Track Non-Album B-Side), 'Life And Times (Bonus Track Non-Album B-Side),' 'Make It Funky (Bonus Track Non-Album B-Side),' before heading into 'Don't Tell Me Lies (Dance Mix),' 'In All Honesty (Chilled Out Mix),' 'Jonah (A Whale Of A Mix),' and 'All That Jazz (Remix).'
The second disc rounds the final musical bend with 'Hands To Heaven (Extended Heaven),' 'Any Trick (Like A Monkey Club Mix),' 'How Can I Fall? (Extended Remix),' 'Don t Tell Me Lies (Extended Version)' and then 'In All Honesty (US Remix).'
And with all Cherry Red CD booklets, this one contains comprehensive sleeve notes. Including contributions from producer Chris Porter who also engineered Faith, George Michael's blockbuster album from 1987. Additionally, it features a singles discography and all three different versions of the album cover!
