6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Paul Rodgers on 24 Sep 2009
Format: Audio CD
The re-issue of The Fun Boy Three's eponymous début album is most welcome and long overdue. After leaving The Specials (and before reforming them 27 years later) Terry Hall has had a massively varied career, which started with this collaboration with fellow Specials Neville Staples and Lynval Golding.

The album was largely experimental as the trio had very little experience of playing instruments and only hired in one session musician to help them.

You'll find the hits The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum, It Ain't What You Do (which inadvertently launched Bananarama on a career trajectory their début single had not suggested!), The Telephone Always Rings and post album single Summertime here along with several bonus tracks, most of which are hard to find on CD and one of which is on CD for the first time here.

What a great upbeat fun album from Terry Hall & mates. Have an original cd that gets a lot of play because it's just that good. Also this is the album that gave Bananarama their big break.Some of the songs deal with serious topics in the lyrics, see Lunatics Have Taken Over, but then this was the "fashion play your part to be workers & wear red" (China Crisis quote) era when it was fashionable to be anti Maggie Thatcher & Ronnie Reagan.

Really great to dance to at a party or just out on the patio (see the neighbor's reactions). Also lyrics aside it really has stood the test of time & doesn't sound dated. Of course not as intellectual as LLoyd Cole which sometimes is a good thing because he can get depressing at times!

What a great album. I have this on vinyl but very rarely play it but wanted to have a digital copy so purchased one. I wasn't disappointed and I think it still sounds great.
