4.0 out of 5 stars Great album - but not much for the long time fan 11 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
I can't argue with the sound of this music. It is all of the highest quality.

Tuxedo Junction always makes me smile, as do most of the other tracks. I would suggest people hunt out the three 'And Friends' albums, as I reckon they could pick those up for not much more than this best of, and have three times as much music, without missing much.

The only issue I have with this album (hence missing the fifth star) is that there is not much incentive to buy this album if you already own the three aforementioned 'And Friends' albums. A better idea would have been to do a retrospective of Jools' solo (or non Squeeze) career, which spans the best part of 25 years, thus giving more 'new' material to more people.

That said, the music is all good, and if you want to smile like a loon, and dance like one too, this album is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jools Holland Best of Friends [CD + DVD] 8 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent collection of Jools Holland with a variety of international artists who do not loose their singing styles alongside a great musician. I also enjoyed the DVD and would certainly purchase any DVD that gives full videos instead of the clips in this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a sampler 9 Aug 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
All the Holland tracks bar 2 have been issued before so the real incentive is for the 2nd CD.
As its a German label who issued this there's no concern about whatever was released
Though its bad enough having to put up with a non runner like Shane McGowan it could have been worse if they'd included Amy Winehouse or the Libertines who've also been on Later

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Class 21 May 2014
By A.Kelly
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For me this is an excellent blend of musicians. My personal favourite is Put A Spell On You with Mica Paris and David Gilmour. In my opinion I would give some of the tracks five stars and none less than four stars.
