Thumbs up for this one from me, as well!

"First Thrills" is long overdue on CD and sounds pretty good remastered. The extra disc featuring the 10 pre-debut tracks should appeal to those who already like "FT", too.

I personally particularly enjoy the first two tracks, where the sound is more piano-laden pomp rock with some quirky turns both in the songwriting and arrangements. "Let Me Play My Music" reminds me a little of early era John Miles at his very best, but featuring more complex vocal arrangements. Oh, and the third track is the original take on "Explorer Time", which sounds like a very natural continuation musically from the opening pair of songs.

I would finally like to point out that buying the Thrills CD will help fund further releases from Secret Jazzer Records. I've had the pleasure of leafing through (label boss) Stephen's personal record collection, and if he succeeds in reissuing some of his personal favourites, we will see some very nice supplements to the titles released by the likes of Rock Candy, indeed!
