Although the songs from Boney M have been released many and many times over on compilation cd's, this is actually the second time that this album is going to be released on cd. As a fan and collector I was hoping that this release would bring some rareties that were still not released on cd before. Partly that's what we get.

The tracklisting:

Nightflight To Venus 4:47

Rasputin 5:52

Painter Man 3:11

He Was A Steppenwolf 6:52

King Of The Road 2:37

Rivers Of Babylon 4:21

Voodoo Night 3:31

Brown Girl In The Ring 4:02

Never Change Lovers In The Middle Of The Night 5:33

Heart Of Gold 4:05

Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord (Bonus track) 5:49

Dancing In The Streets (Bonus track) 3:59

On vinyl this album has been released 4 times around with different running running times of zeveral songs. For example, the first vinyl release contained a 7 minute version of nightflight to venus and a 6:39 minute version of rasputin, while on the second vinyl release the nightflight track ran 5:55 and on the third it lasted only 4:58 and the 4th and shortest only 4:45. And unfortunately, this short 4:45 minute version is the one used on this cd. Can you inmagine how I (colletor and fan) hoped that finally that long version became available. Hence my dissapointmend. Also the second track, rasputin is the 5:52 minute version and not the first vinyl (6:39) or second vinyl (6:03) version, but again the fourth vinyl short version.

Other omissions for me, the 12" version of rivers of babylon (yes, there is a officially released vinyl promo-only 12inch that runs 7:22, released in 1978 so no later done re-mix).

I grew up listening to two albums specifically, Boney M's Nightflight to Venus, and Oceans Of Fantasy. As I got older, Boney M was not "cool" anymore and I stopped listening to them. It wasn't until the early 90's, after their Boney M "Gold" release, that I got back into them. I was unaware that they had so many albums, let alone singles. I'm proud to say that thanks to Amazon.com I own every album that they've released, and I'll be attending their concert this coming March. Anyway, back to the review, it's as good now as it always was. A lot of credit is given to Liz and Marcia and Bobby, but if anyone just listened to the album, you'd know the best part of any Boney M album is the incredible percussion and infectious dance beats. As much as I've gotten all the albums, Nightflight and Oceans remain the best. And contrary to one reviewer, it's even better on CD. There may not be bonus tracks, nor lyrics inside, but they've never had those things on any of their albums. I'm happy they were re-released the way the were the first time around.
But if you're going to buy any Boney M albums, and you want the best, get this one.

This 10+ million selling album was one of the best-sellers from 1978, rivalled only by "Saturday Night Fever". Although Boney M. was always considered a disco act, and this album was released at the height of the disco fever, "Nightflight To Venus" - containing no less than 4 UK Top 10-hits - is actually so much more than just another disco record; this album took Boney M. into a wonderworld of fantasy ... the mysterious title track opens with a robot voice inviting the listener on a nightflight to Venus on board the starship Boney M., breaking into a hypnotizing drum beat with space effects, a catchy guitar riff, suddenly changing into a military march theme, and then back to the basic beat, while the robot voice continues with technical details on the voyage to Venus ... the CD-version contains the most common 4:46-mix of the song but connaisseurs should seek out the early German vinyl pressings which feature an even more amazing 6-min. version of this fantastic masterpiece of producer Frank Farian. The beat flows nicely into the next tale, the story of "Rasputin", "Russia's greatest love machine", an edit of which was the second single off the album, and a huge hit everywhere but in the US. A gorgeous piece of a disco theme with its kitchy kozak parody and not least Farian's concluding "Oh those Russians!" ... Boney M. did a 10-concerts-in-8-days tour in Moscow in December 1978 and was asked not to include "Rasputin" for "historical reasons"! Boney M.'s two previous albums had proved that they could do the least expected cover versions, and covering psychedelic UK band Creations' "Painter Man" in a raunchy guitar-loaden rock stomper was no exception to the rule!Read more ›

I have to say I really like the music on this CD, most of the songs being really good and entertaining, and above all, a great reminder of my childhood days. First, I have to say, I expected a better sound quality of a remastered 70s album. The sound on this CD (as well as on the other Boney M CDs) is quite "flat" especially in comparison with other recordings of that era and it's NOT sounding better than the LP version of this album. I think the album was simply not made from the original master tapes. Proof would be (and I think all Boney M CDs were made of the same generation tapes) that on the CD "Oceans Of Fantasy" the abbreviated version of "Ribbons Of Blue" (which can definitely not be the MASTER tape, which is the long version) was used. Another complaint (also concerning all the Boney M CD releases) is this silly "Boney M The Complete Collection Now Available On CD" PRINTED on the covers and therefore "destroying" them, instead of using a removable sticker on the CD box. Why did they do that? Just very disturbing I find. Also why this print "Original Album Artwork" again PRINTED on the back side of the booklet. This is just not necessary and I never saw something like that elsewhere!! Talking of the booklet, this ISN'T a real booklet as the lyrics (which were contained with the LP releases) and the additional artwork is NOT included! Finally NO BONUS TRACKS (which is the least problem) were in included. To sum it up, the releases of these CDs were in my opinion rather an attempt to make "quick money" instead of an act of giving something interesting to the fans. Obviously the record company wants to "cash" again with later "better" releases ("original master recordings") but I tell you..I won't buy the CDs a second time!!
