III. A Few Interesting Compilations
STREET TO STREET: A LIVERPOOL ALBUM
[various artists; compilation album; August, 1979; vl]
NOTES: STREET TO STREET contains the original version of "Monkeys" (misspelled "Monkies" on the inner record label). This pre-de Freitas Bunnymen configuration features the legendary drum machine, Echo. Poor Echo was later stolen, and has not been heard from since. According to The Record Collector, this is the "most desirable compilation" of the Bunnymen. Julian Cope plays the keyboards.
vl: Open Eye OE 501
URGH! A MUSIC WAR

It was recorded at various venues in Britain and Europe. There is also a film, which turns up occasionally in arthouses and is available (secondhand) on VHS - CBS/Fox Home Video.

The Bunnymen had been the only festival participants to team with musicians from another culture -- the Royal Drummers of Burundi, on "Zimbo".

ME WITHOUT YOU
[various artists; soundtrack; July 16th, 2002; cd]
NOTES: This British coming-of-age movie includes "The Cutter" in its soundtrack.
cd: Sony 86794
[various artists; movie/soundtrack; 2002]
NOTES: This much talked about cult film introduced Echo and the Bunnymen to a new generation, by way of "The Killing Moon". The song was featured in the movie's opening sequence, but was left off the 'soundtrack' (really a film score) album - a cost-saving measure, apparently. Everything-has-changed note: a new 2-cd DONNIE DARKO soundtrack album does include "The Killing Moon", but the song was removed from the 'director's cut of the film. GROSSE POINTE BLANK (October, 1997) and THE GIRL NEXT DOOR (March, 2004) also use the classic Bunnymen song, and include it on their albums.
cd: Enjoy 3; Sanctuary SANDP251 (UK - January 19th, 2004) [This is a re-release of the film score]; Sanctuary SANDD 320 (UK -- October 4th, 2004) [This is a 2-cd set. Disc 1 contains songs used in the film. Disc 2 is the film score (Sanctuary SANDP251)]
[various artists; compilation album; January 24th, 2006; cd]
NOTES: Way Out West do a remix of Echo and the Bunnymen’s “Lips Like Sugar”.
cd: Rhino Records 73198
