"This a solid recording but most of the songs can be found on 'The New Mix In One Go, Yello 1980-1985' which I consider a better purchase and certainly a better introduction to Yello. However, the track 'Desert Inn' is excellent and is not included in 'The New Mix..'
For the interest of one of the other reviewers - the bonus track 'Oh Yeah - Indian Summer Version' has been put on CD before. Yello issued a limited edition CD singles box set of 3000 copies back in 1988. The five singles were:
Let Me Cry (4.15)/ Haunted House (4.28)
Oh Yeah (Dance Mix)(6.25)/ La Habanera (5.10)/ Oh Yeah (Indian Summer Version)(5.30)
Goldrush I (6.31) / Goldrush II (6.12) / She's Got A Gun (Live at the Palladium N.Y.)(4.20)
Tied Up In Red (8.28)/ Wall Street Bongo (3.05) / Tied Up (6.05)
The Race (13.22)/ Another Race (Magician's Version for Tempest + Cottet)(3.42)"

"I think that this CD is an excellent version of "Stella." The sound is rich and full and the bonus tracks work so well with the original tracks that it seems like the sequence was always intended to be as on this CD. I have no complaints whatsoever.
As far as what isn't on it, I think that the only way to satisfy those who wanted more is to release a 2-disk version someday. Yello has produced quite a few of their own remixes and singles, so I am sure we can expect more product in the future.
But, as far as I am concerned, I love the arrangement of this CD. It maintains a consistent mood that is punchy yet gentle; cosmic and trippy. The lyrics have great feeling even at their most abstract. It is serious and fun all at once."
