    Just announced on their Facebook page is a forthcoming Human League 'Anthology', to tie in with their winter 2016 tour. Post-Beatles the word anthology in connection with an album tends to indicate at least some previously unreleased archive material, which would make me for one incredibly happy. The world really, really, really doesn't need another best of / hits collection.

    My fingers are cautiously crossed for something far more interesting than the usual compilation.

    It would be a good time for them to officially release stuff like this incredible early version of The Word Before Last:

    The unreleased Version of "Crash" before Jam and Lewis would be great....

    Wonder if there is any chance the Disconet remix of Don't You Want Me might be included. I'm not holding my breath.

    If it includes unreleased songs or very different mixes/versions then it could be interesting. If it's another best of with a couple of demos than not so much

    It's initially been announced as including some 'dj and radio edits' which doesn't sound remotely exciting. On the other hand I've also heard the archives are being trawled and two early versions of I Don't Depend On You have been located and either of those could be in the running for the track list.

    I'm a fan of the early years and while its good to have the video stuff on there I would have liked more from that period.

    I like early Human League. This looks like a good comp (deluxe edition), but I would have like this OTT performance to be on there - obviously not BBC I think it was ITV or C4.

    Still highly impressive how Phil O. pulled it off after he was left for dead with the name. Against all odds "Dare" is great. The first two are very good as well.

    I don't mind the idea of a cartoon / illustration but that's a bit of a weird choice for the cover.
