New Order - Substance 1987 (2 x CD) £4.99 @ HMV

New Order always shone brightest as a singles band, and this stellar two-disc set collects most of the a- and b-sides from singles released between the band's inception and 1987. "Ceremony", a leftover from the band's past as Joy Division,opens the proceedings. It is followed by 150-odd minutes ofmaterial that, through the 1980s, set the standard for dance music. Classics like "Everything's Gone Green", "Perfect Kiss" and "Bizarre Love Triangle" appear next to alternate versions of the stunning "Temptation" and "Confusion". Also included is "True Faith", which, along with "1963", was recorded especially for this collection. Opening the second disc is another Joy Division leftover, "In a Lonely Place", a haunting epitaph for the former band.
"Procession", "Mesh" and "Hurt", all great evocations of loss and healing, lead into "The Beach", an instrumental (and far superior) version ofthe dance classic "Blue Monday". "Murder" is New Order's creepiest moment, with its sampled "I hate them!" from the film "Caligula" and assorted samples of HAL, the computer from the film 2001, descending into insanity. SUBSTANCE is not only the sound of an evolving band, but the sound of an evolving musical style that has influenced countless other artists.

Me too. allthough my copy is on tape and itunes.. And if I recall, back in the day my tapes cost £18

And at £5 I might just get the discs even if they never get used.

Well erm, since this is a singles collection, and Elegia was not a single... it doesn't really belong on there at all.

I love that song!! What an amazing album also. I listened to it so much back in the eighties while growing up, ahhh the memories, beautiful :)

there's not 24 tracks on disc 1 thats a cut n paste error. 24 tracks in total.

if you're a fan of JD/NO can I please point you at http://thepowerofindependenttrucking.blogspot.com/ for rarities and
http://neworder-recycle.blogspot.com/ for better versions than what is on here. in fact better versions than the recently re-released-but-had-to-be-withdrawn-because-it-was-poo reissues.

this version does not have the original Confusion or Temptation BTW.
#8
Also on all versions of this, "Mesh" is actually not "Mesh"! It is "Cries And Whispers".

Only the Tape version has the actual song "Mesh", and also includes "Dub-vulture", "Shellcock", and "Bizarre Dub Triangle", because of the extra space. It remains the only version that has all the A Sides and B Sides of each 12" (apart from the fact that Temptation and Confusion versions were actually rerecorded)

Sadly there has never been a reissue with these extras on CD, I have the tape version and back in the day it was rarely out of my walkman on the dull journeys on the bus to college. Remember buying it at the time for about £6, and here we are some 22 years later, my god it makes me feel old!

Wikipedia tells you all about the tracklisting confusion (no pun intended!) here

Simply outstanding.

1st cd I ever bought - Awesome!
#11
One of only three tapes I wore put through use when I was growing up. Hot - although the first line of the description "New Order always shone brightest as a singles band" is the biggest load of bobbins Ive heard recently. They were so much, much more than that.

Me too, I listened to nothing else for months on end
#13
I may re-purchase this as my original CDs bought in the day have suffered very badly from cd-rot.

Magic, had this years ago and loved it, the tape version with the "Bizarre Dub Triangle" which was my favourite. if only I could time travel. I'd go forward a week and get the euromillion numbers and then get New Order to play live in my back garden and invite all my old mates round. You guys can come too.

It's not going to happen, is it?
#15
quality album - great price - what more is there to be said?

H&R

Thanks for the link - listening to it while working. On part 2 now. Loving it.

Classic, H&R from me!

Good shout. Although I'm surprised the site is still up. This is basically what Rob Gretton wanted as a successor to Substance isn't it?

But we got the Retro box set instead. Oh well.

Substance, BTW, is one the finest collections of singles you will ever hear. Brilliant.
