2008 two disc (CD + PAL/Region 0 DVD) edition of the '80s superstars' 'best of' collection including a bonus DVD that compiles their best videos in one place. Spandau Ballet grew out of the same New Romantic scene that spawned Duran Duran and, for awhile, the two bands had a playful rivalry that was similar to The Beatles and Rolling Stones rivalry two decades earlier. By the mid '80s, Spandau had transformed themselves into a well oiled Pop/Soul machine with hits like 'True', 'Gold', 'Only When You Leave' and others. This collection brings together their biggest hits and videos and is sure to please long-time fans....and it's bound to get those Duran boys riled up again! EMI.

"The tracks listed by Amazon for this item are currently incorrect and should read as follows:
1) To Cut A Long Story Short
2) The Freeze
4) Chant No. 1 (I Don't Need This Pressure On)
5) Paint Me Down
11) Only When You Leave
12) I'll Fly For You
13) Highly Strung
14) Round And Round
15) Fight For Ourselves
16) Through The Barricades
17) How Many Lies
18) Be Free With Your Love
She Loved Like Diamond is not actually on the CD as the Amazon list would suggest, but tracks 17 and 18 are two songs that weren't included in their description that are in fact present.
Not only do you get all of their biggest hit singles (including some not released in the United States), there's also a fantastic booklet that includes photos from each of their albums. For collectors this is a real find."
Excellent CD+DVD greatest hits combo

"After much confusion as to whether or not this package was going to be released (it's not even featured on the band's official site, as far as I can tell), I finally received my copy. The CD is the same version that was released in 2001, but the DVD contains all of their music videos (that I am aware of!) and has remastered audio. Picture quality is also very good. DVD is PAL Region 0."
