|In 1995 the Silva Screen label, which had before released some soundtrack albums like The Park Is Mine, Deadly Care or Dead Solid Perfect, published another compilation of TD music, using a misleading title and subtitle: Only the featured material from Heartbreakers, Dead Solid Perfect and Catch Me If You Can was played by TD; the other four tracks are cover versions. But this fact can only be read in little letters on the cover back side and on the booklet inner side. The first look alleges that the CD is a regular TD Compilation like the first Dream Music CD issued by Silva in 1993. The text does not mention any reason why Silva did not take original TD material for all the tracks. This compilation contains no new material by TD.|
After release, Edgar Froese was very upset with the entire behaviour of this British-based company. He simply called this "raping other peoples integrity and creativity for ugly money -- it's absolutely disgusting and embarrassing." Unfortunately TD had limited rights to take legal action against this company, because they had bought the rights directly from the film studios in the USA without notifying TD's legal and business department. TD in fact has never given permission nor has any of the band members ever contributed to the release of such compilations. In TD's view, they are "musically worthless, because of the way that they have been compiled and partly 're-recorded' by some unknown studio musicians -- a project of complete nonsense".
Ford A. Thaxton, who had compiled and produced the CD does not share Edgar Froese's and many collectors' low opinion of this item. "These compilations are aimed not at the die-hard fan, but rather the causal fan who simply wants a 'Greatest Hits' CD", says Thaxton. He concedes to "know that some don't agree with what I did in this CD, but the sales have been very good and that in the end is what matters."
