  • The good news is that box really looks great and the 12 inches comes with there original sleeve art work. I already have the 12 inches but without the art work. The sound is almost like the original albums. Now for the bad news. The box comes with a voucher for one complete digital download. So for the very first time you can download the Body and Soul 12 inch and obtain the 3 missing tracks that where never digital available before. I’m talking about the tracks. Body Electric (1984 version), Train and Afterhours (Body And Soul track was available on the greatest hits volume 1 CD).
    Here the bad thing starts. My all time favorite Sisters of Mercy track is the 1984 version of Body Electric. The digital download doesn’t have the 1984 version of Body Electric…You guessed it, it’s the original 1982 version. Aaggghhh. Will there ever be a digital version of 1984 version of the Body Electric??
