Rock-In-Beat-Records from Germany release a lot of nice compilation CD's, but I'm almost sure, that it are not legal releases. In this case they took two Love Affair albums and added a lot of extra tracks from singles. Also here you can hear the Mike d'Abo song "Handbags And Gladrags". A nice compilation and if you are interested in this CD or like to know more about this record company, go to their site:
