The one that was called something like "This is the band I waited forever for"

I'd definitely be into it, but I don't want you to have to go to too much trouble

I remember playing it a lot on another computer that I had that I got drunk and spilled beer all over losing everything

i'll keep looking for the mix, but it's pretty easy to just make another one too.

I love the album Please but for some strange reason never explored beyond that. Look forward to hearing the mix!

Would love to hear this. Behaviour is probably my favorite PSB album, but I haven't heard a lot of their latter output

Sorry this has taken on a new life. I'm basically doing 1984-2009, 25 years of the PSBs (after that i don't care much, tbh)
I should be finished soon, but it's taking some editing to make it really worth doing

ok so i went all in and it's 60 tracks and pretty much has everything i love from them.
(there's a few odds and ends tracks that i didn't include just because they would've kinda killed the flow of the thing)
i did some edits/remasters of vinyl-only things that haven't made it onto the remastered CDs
it's all mostly arranged chronologically by release date, but i took a few liberties
hope y'all enjoy listening to it as much as i enjoyed making it. link below and it's going up to the thing as i type this

i love every single one of those.

tbh, i had a hard time not putting the entirety of Behaviour on there
also, To Speak Is A Sin is a personal fave that i figured might be offputting to others, so i left it out - but it means so goddamn much to me
and so many b-sides (Jack The Lad, If Love Were All, Sexy Northerner)

but,
It's 6 hours as it is

i'll stand by my choices and say .... if you love this, there's really very few things in their discography that aren't worth the time to listen

Interesting that you fell off right before Electric, which a lot of folks seem to think is one of their best. Did you never get to it, or is it just not for you?

This got me to prune and upload a playlist I started some time back, tracking my favourite remixes of theirs. I've been a fan since I was 10: So Hard on the radio -> Behaviour -> Discography -> Please. I then had the option of buying Actually or Disco. I went with the latter, and my love of looong remixes began. Today I own probably all of the non-super-rare 12"s and CD/DVD singles of theirs. Even fucking Winner.

This list, as is rentboy's, is more personal than commercial, mostly chronological, and I can essentially think back to where I was when I first heard most of them. There's also some more bonkers mixes in there, though I think I removed most of them when preserving zip file size (600ish MB). I also tried to keep it to one mix per song, but there's a couple with two mixes represented. I also didn't include the mixes already in rentboy's list.

nice companion piece rankoutsider! i mostly tried to avoid remixes by other folks, though i did include the frankie knuckles remix of "i want a dog" and the francois kevorkian extended remix of "rent" and the base remix of "domino dancing", oh and that sasha remix of "violence" ;)

gordie, i actually included "Love Is" and "Thursday", and had "Vocal" in there before the final cut
i like the remixes of Fluorescent too that came out on that RSD 12'' also

but overall the album has never really clicked with me the same way most of their other stuff has.

i think Elysium is definitely their weakest album, even moreso than Electric
