Absolute treasure

"I can only say, for those who are fans of early eighties alternative music, this is a must have. This American band was way ahead of the other American acts. I'm not too sure why they broke up, however, the music is completly original. Listen to "Numbers with wings", and "Barbarella" and you'll know where I'm coming from."
Perfect pop from Richard Barone and the band

"I bought the Numbers With Wings EP back in the new wave days. I still have it and play it every once in a while. It's still great, melodic pop. This two-fer also contains the Beat Hotel album, which is not as consistent as Numbers With Wings, but still pretty good. "Brave New World" is one of my faves from the album.Their first album, "Drums Along The Hudson," might have been a better choice to package with Numbers With Wings. It was raw, weird, quirky, and darn good. The production of Drums was pretty bare-bones compared to Numbers and Beat Hotel, but the unique songs (most of them very short) make up for it. Some of it sort of reminds me of stuff like "Killing An Arab" by the Cure. If you can get Drums cheap, snatch it up."
Great music but AWFUL MP3 compression by Amazon!!

"I have this EP on vinyl and am currently converting the songs to MP3. I thought I might save myself some effort by just buying them here. But when I listened to the samples, man are they bad! Super compressed...you can here the vocals squeezed and the weird "flanger" effect on the drums. I'm not anywhere near as much as an audiophile as I might come across, but I know BAD sound when I hear it. I'd rather spend some extra time making high quality MP3s from the original source versus spending cash on these poor quality files."
