This deluxe Sound and Vision release of Look of Love: The Very Best of Abc comprises 30 tracks on double CD including all of the hits plus rare 12 inch mixes and two tracks on CD for the very first time. The DVD (PAL / Region 0) 'Absolutely Abc' includes 14 promotional videos mixed in 5.1. One of the defining acts of the early 1980's, ABC are still regarded as one of the most talented ensembles of this time and their first album The Lexicon Of Love is still thought of as a classic of the era. Included here from Lexicon are the brilliant tracks 'The Look Of Love' (UK No. 4), 'Poison Arrow' (UK No. 6) and 'Tears Are Not Enough' (UK No. 19). Other top 40 singles featured here include the Sheer Chic Mix of 'The Night You Murdered Love', 'One Better World' and 'SOS'. Often championed as the purveyors of perfect pop, ABC were formed in late 1980 by vocalist/songwriter Martin Fry and guitarist Mark White, with saxophonist Steve Singleton, drummer David Robinson and bassist Mark Lickley completing the original five piece line up. With a mission to re-invent disco music and make pop more ridiculous and less pompous the band were snapped up by Phonogram Records and less than a year later found themselves at No. 19 in the UK charts with their debut 45 Tears Are Not Enough (the demo version of which is included here) which highlighted Fry's dramatic vocal style to the full. Disc 2 contains a selection of the band's finest 12" mixes. The tracks "Vanity Kills - US Remix" and "The ABC Megamix" appear on CD for the very first time. Universal. 2005.
The Bonus CD is the BOMB!

"If you've been searching for the best remixes of ABC, look no further. Love the Megamix, The Night You Murdered Love (Sheer Chic Mix) and Millionaire (Bond St. Mix). A great collection."
