Biography

Originating at the turn of the 1980s as a leader of the lite-jazz movement, Everything but the Girl became an unlikely success story more than a decade later, emerging at the vanguard of the fusion between pop and electronica. Founded in 1982 by Hull University students Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, the duo took their name from a sign placed in the window of a local furniture shop, which claimed ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Everything but the Girl (Ben Watt and ex-Marine Girl Tracey Thorn) have gone through two distinct phases in their career--they spent most of it as an acoustic, folky duo with some occasional lounge accompaniment, but after a Todd Terry remix of Amplified Heart's "Missing", they veered toward the dance floor. "Best of" tries to encapsulate all of that in 15 tracks and while it brings together many of the essential songs--the remix of "Missing", "Apron Strings", "Rollercoaster", "I Don't Want To Talk About It" and even Thorn's guest vocal on Massive Attack's "Protection"--it also has a lot of holes. There are only 10 tracks from EBTG's entire nine album pre-remix career and none that feature Watt as vocalist; also missing is Thorn's guest slot on the Style Council's "Paris Match" (from Café Bleu). As a slightly lopsided introduction to EBTG, this collection is fine but you might do better buying a few albums instead (start with Amplified Heart, Idlewild, and Walking Wounded). --Randy Silver

Not the very best of EBTG, but the stand out tracks for me are: Missing, Apron Strings, I don't want..., Driving and Protection.
Gives a good insight into EBTG world, but for a complete look you need to get the albums that make up this collection.
A good attempt though, just not good enough...

so ebtg switch labels and start becoming really succesful in the dance aren...they pull out the best of ebtg's past life as a folky band and release it with a few of their recent mixes cobbled on.
two problems here. the first is that it hasn't been done exceptionally well and you don't get a glimpse into the development of the band as you might have done, for instance had the track choice (and ordering) been better. the second is that it their older stuff isn't that great (imo) and this forms the majority of the album.
still there are some good tracks. but if (like me) you like their more recent stuff then this may not be for you.

Normalmente no compro discos como "lo mejor de.." o "grandes exitos" pero este disco es tan sensacional como la propia Banda.
Ya tenía todos estos temas en los discos originales (algunos en vinilo tambien) pero este no podía faltar en la discografía personal que tengo de EBTG.
Para fans como yo ;)...

Quality Album and brings back so many fond memories of frequenting the Corbiere's Bar in Central Manchester in the early 1980's especially " Each and Everyone " which was played many times on the old Duke Box.....

Great cd. The version of missing is a club remix version. Added bonus. Pity they have decided to take a back seat with their career.
