There are NO Man Of Colours tracks as Iva felt they were too new at the time and deserved to be heard as a set and not broken up for inclusion on a greatest hits package.
Any Icehouse purchase is worth it.
Buy this CD, listen to it once - I dare you!
What 'Great Sothern Land' demonstrates is that the pop perfection of 'Man Of Colours' was no fluke. Icehouse and Iva Davies had a great pop sensibility right from the outset. Their debut album spun off synthpop classics such as 'We Can Get Together', 'Can't Help Myself', 'Walls' and 'Sister'. Other highlights include the emotional slow-burn of 'Don't Believe Anymore', the sly 'Hey Little Girl' and the anthemic title track. New track 'Touch The Fire' is a strong song as well.
Since Icehouse's commercial success petered out in the 90's, and some of their early albums might be difficult for international listeners to get hold of, this collection plus 'Man Of Colours' are the essential purchases for overseas fans. Highly recommended....although Australian fans are probably better off starting with their debut album.
The import version of "Great Southern Land" sports more cuts than the out of print US CD, and also replaces the overdrawn remix of "No Promises" with the album version, to the song's benefit. Fans of 80's music like Roxy, Fixx and Ultravoxx would do well to seek this CD out.

Great group from the 80's. Big sound on Great Southern Land (the song). Some of the other songs are poppy.Published on July 14, 2013 by Pegs
