Track list needs work

"If you're looking to get started with Alphaville, you could do worse than to pick up this expensive import, but you could also also spend a bit less and arguably get more of their best work for your money.The good: the inclusion of the achingly gorgeous "Lassie Come Home" and the giddy, goofy, dance-around-the-living-room classic "Sensations," two tracks from AV's second album _Afternoons in Utopia_ that didn't seem to get enough attention the first time around.The bad: sadly, the third album just wasn't very good, and the four tracks chosen to represent it here don't seem likely to convince anyone otherwise.I say, skip this one, pick up _Forever Young_ and _Afternoons in Utopia_ instead -- hey, they're both available used at bargain-basement prices -- and burn yourself a nice mix featuring the selections from those albums included here, plus "Fallen Angel," "Universal Daddy," "Summer in Berlin," and whatever else strikes your fancy.Then, once you're suitably obsessed, pick up _Prostitute_ and _Salvation_ (albums #4 and #5), whose pleasures are myriad."
Great album.

"After first bringing this album back to the US back in 1992, I have had numerous requests for copies from friends. I have dutifully brought back copies on every trip to Germany or the Czech Republic. The selection of singles exceeds in quality those on any of the US-release Alphaville greatest hits albums. If you only buy one Alphaville album, this is the one to have!"
Lots of fun!

""First Harvest" is a "best of Alphaville" CD that would be a very good buy for someone who is only familiar with "Forever Young." It gives a wonderful selection of their albums up to that point, some just as they were recorded on the original album, some slightly remixed (but not enough to change the song). Highly recommended."
