Cherry Red reissue
Young Men Gone West (disc 1) and Book Early (disc 2) are complemented by two bonus tracks on disc 2. New sleeve notes are provided by Malcolm Dome.
Press releases inform these releases are re-mastered from original tapes, and that this is the first official release of these albums on CD.
In his regular reviews for Truck & Driver magazine, starting a four of five star review, Shaun Connors wrote, "City Boy are probably most known for their 1978 Top 10 single 188.8.131.52. and little else, but there is so much more to this Midlands 1970s proggy-poprock outfit than the one-hit wonder status they are so unfairly labelled with, continuing with As two double-CDs, the first four of seven City Boy albums have been reissued by Cherry Red, this offering by far the most accomplished and listenable of the two."
