SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION: Top 10 Deerest Goldfrapp Rarities

With the exhilarating announcement from Goldfrapp about the arrival of their 6th studio album "Tales of Us" and the teasers promising a sonic journey similar to their phenomenal cinematic debut "Felt Mountain" I am all over Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory again. Re-visiting the entire catalogue of the London duo, chasing down missing items for my Goldfrapp collection and compiling this very subjective über-nerdy list of their most wonderful rarities hidden behind the band's numerous singles, live albums, expanded and deluxe editions of the existing records. Only the most talented and prolific artists can afford to release such comprehensive works of musical art as b-sides or bonus tracks. You can pre-order "Tales Of Us" on vinyl, CD or deluxe box set HERE.
