  • Cabaret Voltaire

    Cabaret Voltaire

    3xCD / Conform to Deform '82/'90. Archive / Virgin Records

    The music sounds much more at home in 2002 than it did when it was originally released. As I am not a fan of live discs, to me this box is a two CD set (the third disc is a well done live recording from June 8, 1990 in Edinburgh).
