Synopsis

With a discography that includes a classic debut album (1984's Welcome to the Pleasuredome), a misguided sophomore effort (1986's Liverpool), and very few B-sides but plenty (like tons) of remixes, compiling Frankie Goes to Hollywood in a one-disc set is easy if you don't over-think it. Knocking the new wave circus act's career with ease, Frankie Said certainly avoids just that. The rarities it offers are on the edge of even a rabid fan's interest ("Born to Run" "live" on the Tube is just the studio version but louder, and that Anne Dudley mix of "Two Tribes" is nothing but the piano intro, now isolated), plus all the hits ("Relax," "Two Tribes," "Power of Love") are present in both representative mixes and worthy alternates. Where things get arguable is with the inclusion of four tracks off Liverpool with "Born to Run" stuck in the middle, but since purchasing Welcome to the Pleasuredome is the natural next step after any Frankie "best-of," Frankie Said offers less possible overlap. The running order works, keeping redundant tracks as far away from each other as possible, and that "New York" mix of "Relax" is based on the cherished, rare, and 16-minute "Sex Mix" of the cut, with all the jokes and unnecessary weirdness cut out. Also, all remixes come from the group's heyday of 1984-1986, so don't expect any of the famous Jam & Spoon or Club 69 updates here.
