Editorial Reviews

2012 two CD collection from the Synthpop duo. Alison Alf Moyet and Vince Clarke, collectively Yazoo, stood out among '80s duo acts for the classic combination of big, bluesy voice and stark synthesizer backing. This compilation combines hits like Only You , Don t Go and Nobody s Diary with 12- inch mixes and stunning dance remixes to celebrate their 30th anniversary in floor-filling style, Music Club Deluxe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Complete Collection November 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Vince Clark formed Yazoo with jazz/blues vocalist Alison Moyet after he hastily exited Depeche Mode. The combination of Vince's minimal electronics and synths with Alison's powerful bluesy vocals was pure brilliance. The duo were an immediate hit in their native UK while their debut album "upstairs at eric's" (released under the name YAZ in the US) quietly went platinum stateside. The partnership was short lived and by the time their second album "you and me both" was released the two announced plans to split. Alison would become a successful solo artist and Vince would find further fame with Erasure.

The work presented here is an almost complete collection of the duo's writing output over the course of two albums. Nearly every album track and b-side is included. For the record there are only three original songs missing: "i before e except after c", "in my room" and "And on". The first two omitted tracks in my opinion will hardly be missed but "And on" is a beautiful song and its a shame not to see it here among so many gems. As for the rest of the tracks they are amazing pop songs. The gorgeous "only you" is timeless with its sad longing, the club hit "situation" still sounds fresh and the opening rift to "don't go" is pure 80's synth-pop nostalgia. All the songs here are strong compositions. Later work moved away from pure pop and into deeper and more introspective territory such as the moody "ode to boy" with it's sparse beats and minimal backing and the blatantly political "unmarked".

I cannot tell if these tracks have been remastered but it sounds like there may have been some tweaking of songs. Overall, the collection is low priced and a great way to get nearly 2 albums worth of material. There are some additional remixes which may interest those who like different mixes or arrangements but for the me the main draw are the original compositions which still impress 30 years later.

Excellent introduction to this underrated band. Lot's of fantastic and must haves, but the package is very boring. Some liner notes, but overall very dull.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cool group most of the stuff sounds the same after awhile-always thought the lead singer was a guy.
Allison is great some great tunes here and boring long run disco/dance versions. About 8 good/catchy tunes so worth it!
From their classic first and second albums.
