Found that GOOD AMBITION is 20 seconds longer to the original 1998 mastering. It has a longer instrumental break in the middle. Also SOMEONE LIKE YOU has a 12 second longer dub :) Some other tracks just 3 to 5 seconds longer but that's in the fading. Also the general volume of all songs is much different to the original. Anyone else notice these or other differences? I am now off to check Labour Of Love I & II!

Thanks Joris. Interesting tho, I went into HMV 2 weeks ago and they said they had no listing for the box set at all and it would be at least 4-5 months away :mad:
Never bother askin a music shop anything again.

Sorry to drag up an old thread but I'm new here. Just picked up the Platinum Collection the hopes of getting a remastered version of Labour Of Love I. There seems to be some confusing remarks on here as to whether or not it is remastered even though on Amazon it is advertised as such. Was there a consensus reached on the matter? The tracks definitely sound "louder" (though that doesn't mean better) compared to the '97 release of LOL 1 but I don't own the '97 disc (only going off iTunes). The mastering on the 1980-2000 Best of is noticeably louder (again not always a good thing) than the platinum collection and the platinum collection was released three years later. What gives? Arghhhh so much confusion. :aagh:
