Ultravox! fans fall neatly into two groups; aficionados of the John Foxx-led band's first two albums, and those that prefer the Midge Ure-fronted group. The Island Years
is a round-up of Ultravox!'s early, pre-Midge Ure recordings.
Budget-priced anthology of the first three albums the group recorded for Island Records in the UK. John Foxx was at the forefront of these albums and his fingerprints are all over these tracks. Highlights include "Slow Motion", "Hiroshima Mon Amour", "The Man Who Dies Everyday", "Rock Wrok", "Quiet Men" and many more.
