16 cuts from the Duran Duran/ Lilac Time member's 1985 & 1986 solo albums for Virgin, plus tunes he released under the Dr. Calculus moniker. Includes tracks on CD for the first time. Features two versions of 'Kiss Me' (one producedby J.J. Jeczalik & one mixed by Francoise Kevorkian), plus 'Unkiss That Kiss' & 'I Love You'. 1998 Virgin Records release.
Fine round-up but where is "HOLD IT" and the 12" mixes?!

"I bought all of TIN TIN's erly 12"s/LPs when they first came out in the 80s, and while it's rather nice to have most of his "hits" on CD (esp like having both '83 and '85 mixes of KISS ME), there is one glaring error: WHERE IS "HOLD IT" the 1983 12" he did on Wanrer Bros? It's his BEST song, equal to Kiss Me- couldn't they afford to license it? And while youre' at it, WHERE ARE THE 12" MIXES of Kiss Me, Icing on the Cake, etc? What's the point of putting out STEPHEN TIN TIN DUFFY on CD and no club mixes? Maybe next time. Still a keeper for true fans until they get it right."
This collection is "...better than wine"

"This is some quality pop music here, folks. "Tin Tin" is truly talented.
Every track in the collection is worth listening to twice. It even has the '85 version of his new wave hit "Kiss Me".
This is genuine, quality pop. Every fan of this era should listen to the brilliant talent of Stephen Duffy."
Incomplete and Unsatisfying...

"A must-have for quality bubblegum pop lovers maybe, but where's the Hold It 12"? What about the Dr. Calculus singles, "Programme 7" "Killed By Poetry" and "Perfume from Spain"? I wish they had put more thought into selecting the tracks. A great disappointment."
