Moments of Pleasure CD Box Set

This was the second CD single release of Moments of Pleasure from the UK, which was issued as a limited edition box set, but also came with no new tracks. I found that disappointing at the time, and what made it even worse is that Show A Little Devotion was initially supposed to be on this release as well - but was dropped. Personally, I think it would have made a lot more sense to add Show A Little Devotion and Home For Christmas to this release.

The boxed CD also came with four full colour prints all measuring 5" x 5", but even those were a slight disappointment. Despite the fact that two of the prints featured new photos of Kate at the time, the other two were nothing more than the CD artwork and the printed lyrics.

I'm not sure if it's fair to call this one a letdown or not, but I do remember being disappointed with it. I think a lot of people, including myself, fell for the packaging aspect of it, and the sly way that EMI chose to market this as a box set. In hindsight, this is something I really could have lived without.
