Hits And Pieces The Best Of Marc Almond And Soft Cell, comes available as a 2 CD disc, single CD disc or download and traces Almond s singles career from Soft Cell through to his solo work and collaborations. Almond has always excelled at recording superb singles he has secured a body of work that encompasses truly outstanding originals, covers and duets. Highlights of Hits And Pieces include Tainted Love, What!, Say Hello Wave Goodbye, the Number One reaching Gene Pitney duet Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart, his interpretation of Scott Walker s cover of Jacques Brel's Jacky with its epic kitchen sink production from Trevor Horn, a cover of Donna Summer's I Feel Love with, Bronski Beat, Melancholy Rose and Ruby Red from the Mother Fist album, a Tony Visconti produced nugget The Dancing Marquis, last year's superb The Velvet Trail, the glam stomper Varieté and another unforgettable cover in the form of The Days Of Pearly Spencer. To complete the package is the newest track on this compilation: the previously unreleased A Kind Of Love, three effortlessly breezy minutes that hint at Almond's past the 'light summery psychedelic sounds' on that mid-60s transistor radio, the Northern soul scene that inspired Soft Cell to cover Tainted Love and What! without really sounding much like anything Marc Almond has recorded before.

I had pre-ordered this CD and the shipment was delayed 3 times. I was able to download the MP3 after I purchased the album. As it turns out the MP3 collection was different than what is on the CD.
Which leads me to the good…
The CD collection consists of 1 CD with 17 songs and 1 CD with 18 songs. The original download was for 19 songs. Some of them are duplicated but not all and in total I received an awesome collection.
The sound quality is great and unlike another reviewer I feel that the remaster turned out better than previously released CDs. Marcs voice sounds as great as always.
