But it's not the chain that limits him. It's what he thinks about the chain. I've thought about Nita many times over the last several years. As a survivor of child sexual abuse myself, I was transfixed by her personal testimony. She was a 17 year old survivor of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse by a close relative.
Though she spoke of the experience with boldness, I could hear the grief and pain, the loss of innocence, the loss of self-esteem, and the betrayal of what should have been an intimate family relationship. In her first session with a Christian counselor, she said, "I'll never have a normal life. But she decided not let the chains of her past paralyze her in the present.
I hope she achieved that goal. There are many more Nitas out there. All in all rather a botched job probably organised by accountants than anyone with a love for the music. Wow, I did check out soundcloud and they are certainly not the original extended mixes. Expect a huge backlash. I have listened to them as well and they are new extended versions which I think is really underhand that they have not stated this.
You can listen to them on soundcloud as clips. The official website has now been updated to make this clear. Someone there must be reading here. Makes the non-appearance of an extended Night Train all the more mysterious.
Am I missing something, what is the value of a download of an album that is already included? So will that be included on the CDr? Does that mean that the downloadable album and CDr album have slightly different versions from the regular CD version?
The extended version CD has some new to CD original extended versions it seems. I agree this is a missed opportunity. Especially entire disks of them. Now, if they had done CDs of the stems so you could make your own mixes…. Hello Paul this makes my day!! I read that you were in Berlin.
Sadly i was in New York to organize a forthcoming exhibition of my works. You are always welcome in Berlin! Do I read this correctly? They can press 6 CDs for a boxset but have to stick those to a CDR… I can absolutely see no logical point in this decision. I am sure it will be difficult to sell the copies currently available. There is not a need for a Visage box-set… but perhaps deluxe editions of the first two albums only. I bought the cassette of The Anvil on release back in and I recall the whispered girly voices were far more prominent you could clearly hear what they were saying than the CD versions which came later.
The 7 cd limited edition set looks like quite a limited run. Really looks like a case of forced double dipping. Great news! Another wasted opportunity again as the Extended Versions and Remixes is missing Night Train yet we get a extended version of On We Go which was an album track and never released as a single.
I have bought this anyway from the official shop but it should have been a double CD. Really are plumbing the depths here.. The remixes CD does look pretty good, even if not complete. Human League take note. The Nanas and Dead or Alive sets are the template now — Gather everything together and fans will happily fork out a decent sum. I pretty much doubt it is The Human League who set the price for their latest release, that would be the record company.

A great story with likeable characters, Life on Hold is a good read. May 31, Carol S Tikkanen rated it it was amazing. Life on Hold I enjoyed this story immensely.
It was not all that many pages but it came together nicely. Mom and her daughter, Rae got along fairly well during her teenage years until Rae found a boyfriend. Then all the feelings came out as Rae was tired of moving with all the changes she had to make.
