* SixthRanger: Rainer Bloss is not and never was an official SpotlightStealingSquad: A lot of web sites list Robbie France as a former member of Alphaville, but has contributed to every album since ''The Breathtaking Blue''.when he only spent a couple of years in the 90s touring with the band as a drummer. Other members of Alphaville's touring band from the same time period, such as bassist Alex Slavic and percussionist Shane Meehan, don't usually get listed as band members. France's status as a well-known music producer might explain the special treatment.

Lloyd officially left Alphaville in 2003[[note]]His involvement in Alphaville as a band member was basically finished after ''Dreamscapes'' released in 1999, though he still did managerial and promotional work until his official departure[[/note]]. The lineup for 2010's ''Catching Rays on Giant'' is Marian Gold, Martin Lister on keyboards, David Goodes on guitar, and Jakob Kiersch on drums.

added stuff about first harvest to The Not Remix
Added DiffLines:
** This was clearly what the band had in mind with ''First Harvest,'' as many songs on the compilation are mixed differently from their original versions. Most of the changes are minor, such as the percussion coming in sooner on "Lassie Come Home," but "Sounds Like A Melody" is a completely different beast, with only Marian's vocals coming from the original recording.

* TheNotRemix: Except for "Forever Young," all of the singles from ''Forever Young'' were mixed differently from the album version. "Big in Japan" removed the backwards gong intro; "Sounds Like a Melody" uses different, brighter-sounding synthesizers and a stronger reverb, and eliminated the string ensemble at the end; "Jet Set" was rerecorded completely (after the album came out, no less), Marian's vocals sound less processed, and added the "Let's go to the moon!" mantra at the end.
