Joy Division - A Retrospective Part II (tape, Stick-and-Roll Records, 1987)

The same person who borrowed me all those punk tapes in the last few months also borrowed me this. I know there is a lot of Joy Division to be downloaded out there, especially concerts and such like. 'A Retrospective Part II' (I don't have part 1) has various live bits too (Amsterdam, High Wycombe, Eindhoven, Rainbow Theatre), a track from the Warsaw demo and 'Transmission' and 'She's Lost Control' from the BBC. Nothing spectacular. However it also as 'Candidate' and 'New Dawn Fades' from Unknown Pleasures, but according to the cover 'outtakes/different mixes from 'Unknown Pleasures' (Mastered properly)'. Now I am not too sure about that, but no doubt something to think about all night. Oh Peter Hook of the division is going to perform the 'Unknown Pleasures' LP in its entirety in Eindhoven (May 29) and Den Haag (May 28) with his band The Light, part of a world tour it seems. I may go to either one.

The two 'remixes' from unknow pleasures seems to me exactly the same as the albumversions but in a rough mix and slightly slower than the album versions (especially 'New dawn fades'). Somewhat more echo and a sound as if the tape isn't running well soft/loud wave (don't know how to describe it exactly).

As for Peter Hook & the Light. I'm going to the The Hague gig, but fears the worst, seen some clips on youtube with a lady singer (Rowetta) and that sounds awefull. I've been informed that they are going to play 'Closer', the 'Unknown Pleasures'-tour was before this one, but i'm not sure 'bout that.
