This box is the 1st of three boxes released by Yellow Dog in 1994, as they cemented their status as one of the most prolific and important Beatleg Labels.
This box contains 4 discs, 2 of which would later be released as single discs; "The Early Years" (re-released as "The Decca Tapes" YD061 in 1995) and "TV Appearances" (re-released as "The Ed Sullivan Shows" YD062 in 1995.) The other 2 discs in this set are unique to this box set.
The sound quality of these discs is truly superb, offering some very important new material to collectors.
Very rivals Behaviour as Pet Shop Boys' best album, so it's appropriate that the "further listening" bonus disc on Very's installment in the 2001 expanded-edition series rivals the further listening disc for Behaviour, and perhaps even surpasses it. Like that disc, this collection doesn't rely on remixes for bonus tracks and those that do make it are quite good (a previously unreleased 12" mix of "Go West" and the hacienda version of "Violence").

But More Than Meets the Eye is actually more exciting to listen to than some of its peers from the period, thanks in large part to guitarist and vocalist Gary Chandler's crisp and friendly singing.
Trine Rein is an American-Norwegian singer, who belongs to the exclusive group of Norwegian artists who have sold more than a million records. Trine Rein released her first solo album in 1993, Finders, Keepers. It peaked at the top of the Norwegian album chart for no less than five weeks. But as she was almost unknown before the release, it took her 14 weeks - more than three months - to finally have the most popular album in Norway. And due to the extensive foreign press coverage of the Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer February 1994, her album was soon a hit in Japan as well. At one time she topped 16 different Japanese radio station charts simultaneously…
