Naturally, the news of yet another reissue of DARE probably got a lot of eye rolls. But what's not so clarified with this release is that, aside from getting many bonus tracks from the DARE album sessions, also here is the few tracks from the Fascination EP that had never yet appeared on CD--along with bonus tracks from those sessions. What's CRUCIAL here is that finally, intact on CD is the Improvisation of Fascination as it was on the vinyl with the abrupt cold ending. Recent compilations that have included the mix have faded it out, leaving many fans of the original ending disappointed. Also on CD at last is the EP version of I Love You Too Much. Now--here comes the odd part...They've completely excluded Hard Times as it appeared on the EP!!! Yet it's included in an instrumental version! I simply cannot explain it. I don't get it. Good thing it was included on the Original Remixes and Rarities CD...

Meanwhile, also of note is the fact that the Fascination EP, which is disc 2 and comes in a replica cardboard sleeve of the original vinyl cover, is not at all in the same running order as it was on the EP. Since it's an expanded edition (minus the vocal version of Hard Times), they've sort of scrambled everything around and thrown the bonus tracks in randomly between the original EP tracks as well. It just seems SO weird to have Fascination brought to CD and mess with it like this. And with b-sides, instrumentals, dubs, and 12" mixes included, aside from not including Hard Times, it's kind of odd that they didn't just throw in the 7" version of Fascination as a bonus track as well. This would have been the ultimate expanded edition of the EP.

The other review for this edition of "Dare" is very thorough, and identified the tracks very carefully. One thing to note that I found odd: despite including all kinds of remixes and instrumental versions of the songs, this editions does NOT include the basic radio edit of Fascination. I actually like it better than the "extended" version included here, but that's my only quibble with the tracks included.

The package itself is nice enough. It comes in a sturdy square cardboard box with inserts. The Dare and Fascination CD's come in square Japanese style reproduction sleeves. They printed on rather flimsy cardboard, but they look great. Also included a booklet and 12" cover repros. Very nice for collectors!

I have read lots posts on concerns about the sound of this collection. I think both discs sound great. I already have the DARE/LOVE & DANCING version but picked this up for the Fascination EP and some of the bonus tracks. The collection still gets 5 Stars. Cool box with some cardboard sleeves inside. The * comes into play on my 5 star review because, I would have liked to have seen Virgin put out the Fascination EP with the tracks in the order as they appeared on the original EP; with the bonus stuff not on the original EP at the end. Not a big deal, but for people that had the original vinyl or cassette when it came out- that's how our brains remember it and it would be fun to revisit this the way we remembered the songs appearing. I also noticed that the "Hard times" that appeared on the oroginal EP is not on this CD. I have it on a Love Action 3", and I believe it is on the rarities CD that came out a few years ago, but would have loved to see it on this Fascination EP. The "Fascination" disc comes in its own sleeve as if it is the original Fascination EP, but it is not. All in all a great collection to have- and it is recommended for old fans and a good starting point for new fans. I became a fan when the fascination EP came out and went backwards to DARE, and then followed the band's releases up to Octopus.

Dare: Deluxe Edition is a truly great deluxe edition of Human League's break through album Dare and also includes their 1983 Fascination EP. The booklet contains all the lyrics, music notes and photographs of the band at the time of the recording. I love tracks such as The Things That Dreams Are Made Of, Darkness and Open Your Heart. Highly recommended. 5/5.

A deluxe version of DARE and it's FASCINATION followup with everything BUT the "Hard Times/Love Action (I Believe In Love)" 12" mix and the original "(Keep Feeling) Fascination" 7" mix? With oodles of CD space to spare? They even have replicas of all the sleeves in the box. Now I have to shell out $20 for the 12" 80's Electro:Pop compilation and $12 for The Very Best Of to have them. A missed opportunity to the highest degree. Who's in charge of these rotten decisions? What a drag......
