The Sydney Morning Herald has more from Stephen Pavlovic on how the 'Reflections' shows came to be:
"He recalls the conversation: ''Robert said, 'Your email has piqued my interest, Stephen. It's in fact the 30th anniversary of the Faith album and we've always wanted to do a special show to celebrate it and perhaps do it with an orchestra.''' Subsequent emails led to Smith suggesting they also play the album released the year before Faith, 1980's Seventeen Seconds.
''Then he came back a third time and said, 'If we're going to do those two albums, we should really contextualise it and play [1979's] Three Imaginary Boys and do the first trilogy.'''
