I was very dissapointed with this release of Slide It In. The 2 stars is for this release only, the album itself has been and always will be a 5 star album.
This release baffles me. 3 tracks are missing from the UK mix of Slide It In! (Love Ain't No Stranger, Hungry For Love, and the UK mix of Need Your Love So Bad.) This is very frustrating as a collector. Now I still somehow need to acquire the UK version of Slide It In, even though I have this. And then to top it off, a live acoustic version of Love Ain't No Stranger from 1997 was included. This version has absolutely nothing to do with Slide It In, and is already available on the live album Starkers In Tokyo.
The DVD is fine, all the music videos and a few live tracks from the era are included. However, once again...a live version of Love Ain't No Stranger, this one from one of the Snake tours in the 2000's, and also the Starkers version. Why? I don't know.
Why not just release a 2 CD set with both versions of the album? I don't know.
The remastering is good, the liner notes are great, even though they gloss over the missing tracks. Photos are great as well. Shame about the tracklist.
Two stars. Now I'm off to find the correct UK version.
