I have always been meaning to buy the album UB44 for a long time. I had a number of the songs from a John Peel session for many years and had really enjoyed them. However, time went by and I never bought the full album.
I went to purchase the download version but was highlighted to the fact for a further £5 I could have the other first 4 albums released by UB40 as well....a no brainer really.
I already have an old vinyl copy of Signing Off but haven't played this in years so it has been nice to rediscover it again.
There is some great music here. Signing Off is always lauded with the remaining albums not always given the credit they deserve. I agree that after these albums UB40 became a bit bland but these albums have some real treasures, even Labour of Love!
This really is UK reggae at its best. Recommended.
