I was supposed to go to get RFH gig on London in 2012 but for some reason that I can't remember I had to give he tickets away the day off the gig.

Would like to see this MA show but am skipping it. Will probably regret at a later date.

I'd recommend a newbie starts at the end - Milk And Kisses - or else Heaven Or Las Vegas.
Blue Bell Knoll is my least favourite Cocteau Twins album by a considerable distance - despite the presence of Carolyn's Fingers.

Avoid the remastered CDs - they're the worst I have ever heard by anybody.
The original CDs are your best bet with the exception of Head Over Heels and Treasure which sound better on vinyl.

The Singles Collection is amazing. Remember getting it for Christmas '91.

Milk and Kisses is probably their weakest album. For a newbie Heaven or Las Vegas is the definitely best place to start, then Treasure.

big Carolyns fingers fan, goosebumps every single time
and often evokes a bit of a weep (especially if i'm a bit drunk!)

i love the jools from 94, with summerhead and carolyns
both exceptional versions, liz on top form, very playful
summerhead being about a million times better than the studio version

cheers

Must apologize for the wrong spelling. Obviously not as smart as yourself.
