They did. However the sound (to my ears) is really great and 
crystal clear. Given its was a low budget reissue I though it 
was terrific. The same material on the Varese comp is not as good.

It's vinyl and I'm in Chicago - I'd either have to bring it to you personally or have you pick it up. Let me know. Bobster -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Early morning typo in my previous message: not a 'typical' Bright Tunes Production, but, with all the Tokens chat, a topical one. I think Mick is away for a few days competing in The Commonwealth Games, otherwise he might have modestly pointed out that "He's An Angel" is on one of his earliest Girl Group compilation LPs, "Stop Look & Listen" - Impact Act 001, 1985 for Ace Records. This album is simply the dog's testes. Can't put my hands on his more recent CD comp's, so could be wrong, but I don't think he has used any Summits' tracks since.
