A unique 2CD collection sourced from A Flock Of Seagulls' 7" and 12" singles and featuring rare mixes, remixes and b-sides - many appearing on CD for the first time in the UK. The tracks cover the band's most successful period of 1982 to 1986 and includes seven 7" versions, four 12" versions and numerous remixes and extended versions. We have sourced the material from the original production master tapes. Originally hailing from Liverpool, the band took their name from a line in the song 'Toiler On The Sea' by The Stranglers. The band signed to Jive Records and released 5 studio albums spanning 1982 to 1995. The band enjoyed success around the World but America was a particularly fruitful continent for them. The band hit the upper reaches of the U.S. Hot 100, U.S. Mainstream Rock and U.S Dance charts with 'I Ran (So Far Away)' and 'Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You). There remains a lasting interest in the band and their musical legacy.
