This is an excellent collection - in both mono and stereo - of the original, raw, 'apartment demos'. These have been painstakingly dissected & re-engineered to fit more precisely the Jack Hansen backing tracks featured on the original BH Story Volume 2. For some this labour of love attracted a bit of quite unwarranted criticism when first issued, but having myself been brought up on “Volume 2”, I  have nothing but praise for Roller Coaster and their engineer’s efforts.

The inside of the 3-card fold is a collage of labels from Coral vinyls of the various tracks. Also included is a 36 glossy page booklet containing the background to the Hansen overdubs, details of the musicians involved, numerous rare photographs, and press cuttings. The package even includes a replica fan club membership card!

Produced with RollerCoaster’s usual immaculate attention to detail, this offering just has to be a favourite with collectors.
