If you like such great old British songs and you even like reggae, you must listen and appreciate this record of Ali Campbell. Some of them are better and nicer than the original.

Ali's impression of being Jamaican rather than a brummie informed my youth. His vocal style fitted perfectly with the musical arrangements created by the rest of his former band. Without them he is exposed. No matter which star backing performers he hires he doesn't have the connection he had with UB40 - and this leaves him without a safety net.
A great vocalist but out of his depth with this material and this production.

This third solo offering from the main main of UB40 brings us 12 of his favourite classic songs in his own unique style.

I opted for the two disc version which is the CD+DVD. It was the same price as the standard version so I thought i'd go for that.

The only problem with this album is I find there isn't enough songs on it. Ali picked 12 but really, I enjoyed the CD so much I really could've done with more songs on the CD. 12 isn't simply enough for an album of this high standard.

Each song has that Ali magic. Great vocals and a great overall production. Memories of UB40 all the way through from start to finish.

Any fan of UB40 will love this album. If not, then there is something wrong with you all.

This is the only solo album of Ali's I have bought (I have most of UB40's albums - some even on vinyl!!), I'm not sure I will buy any of the others, its just not the same..... Having said that, I also have UB's 1st album without Ali, again just not the same - they all belong together

This is an okay album - not as good as Ali Campbell's other solo albums, but it's pleasant enough to play in the background.
