User reviews
Track CD2-1 is actually the Edited Remix for U.S.A. originally released as B-side of the UK 7" single True (SPAN1) and track CD2-6 is actually the Remix for U.S.A. originally released as B-side of the UK 12" single True (SPANX1). Both tracks have mistakenly stated inside booklet credits as taken respectively from the UK 7" and 12" single Lifeline. Unfortunately at today the original Lifeline 7" and 12" B-side "Live and let live" have still unreleased on cd.
And if it would be correct, the loudness mastering is absolutely horrible and completely unplayable. Where is the 80s sound quality?


True is the third studio album by the English new wave band Spandau Ballet. It was released on 4 March 1983 on Chrysalis Records. While Spandau Ballet's first two albums earned them European popularity, True made them worldwide stars and was heavily influenced by jazz, soul and R&B. It reached number 1 on the UK Albums Chart, the Top 20 on the US Billboard 200, and charted in numerous other countries around the world. The title track spent four weeks at number 1 in the UK Singles Chart and went to. Album 2013 24 Songs. Spandau Ballet. 2009 Digital Album. True - The Digital E. 2008 сингл. Live At The NEC.

Spandau Ballet - Heaven Is A Secret. Spandau Ballet - Foundation. Spandau Ballet - True. Thankfully, unlike some of the recent EMI remasters, they have managed to get it right on this reissue. The albums producer, Tony Swain supervised this 2003 digital remaster and he did a stellar job. Unfortunately it's no longer available and is commanding obscene prices from third party sellers. I was l. 22 tracks 98:13. Incorrect tag for True. Music video by Spandau Ballet performing TRUE. Taken from the album 'True'. Spandau Ballet are one of Britains great iconic bands having sold over 25 million records, scored numerous multi-platinum albums and. That moment came on their third album, TRUE, which the quintet cut in the Bahamas. Stream the album. Buy the album. Sign up for the Album Of The Day.
