Lovely collection. But... ahhh...
1.You could never understand who was the director of each video

2. When were the videos shot

3. no audio comments or 5.1 mixes... (like "Greatest Hits" by Queen)

But I love the disc for its inclusion of "The Wind Chimes". Now really, who directed these? Waht were the digital devices of that? I wonder its 1986....

To comment on question 3:
I believe that Mike did that whole Wind Chimes project by himself, including directing. It was all done by the computers that he had then. I think that only Magic Touch is made as a collaboration with someone else (shame that this one appears to be the best video  :/ ).
It was released after the year of Islands, in 1988.  :)

Alex Proyas co-directed Magic Touch. The same Alex Proyas directed The Crow, I robot etc, he's quite a big Hollywood director now, he also makes quite a lot of Sting's videos. The photo editing computer Mike used for the Wind Chimes was called Mirage and cost him a whopping £2 Million. It was pretty much out of date as soon as it was out of its box because the first Silicon Graphics computers (which Mike would later buy for TSODE stuff) were starting to be developed by the likes of Pixar at the same time.  

I think the Wind Chimes project in general shares a lot in common with MVR, a sort of nice little effort buy Mike, but he quickly seems to have lost interest, perhaps because neither of them proved very successful and probably left him rather out of pocket.
