Format: Audio CD
Squeeze had its roots in the same UK lyricism and wit as late 1970s Elvis Costello. These charming songs succeed through their deft characterisation and catchy tunes. There is also plenty of stylistic variety, from the plaintive rock of Goodbye Girl to the out and out country of Labelled With Love. Other great songs here include Tempted, Pulling Mussels From The Shell, Up The Junction, Tale Me I'm Yours, Hourglass, King George Street and Trust Me To Open My Mouth. This is fine pop music, quirky and charming, especially when Squeeze go into story-telling mood as on Labelled With Love. The sound is peculiarly British but the songs have universal appeal. Squeeze emerged during the punk revolution but they outlived that era and their memorable songs have stood the test of time very well.

Format: Audio CD
Originally released around a decade ago, this album chronicles the evolution of the band, from the hard sounds of the late 70's (Take Me, I'm Yours, Cool for Cats) to the refined, pop sound of the late 80's (Hourglass etc). As someone who had never hear dany Squeeze until a few weeks ago, this album provides the variety and originality needed to soothe the new listener, whilst stir and rouse the die hard fans as well! When Crowded House's Greatest hits came out a number of years ago, the advertising slogan was something like 'it's amazing how many Crowded House songs you know'... wsell, in my opinion, this can also be applied to Squeeze. Labelled with love, Black Coffee in Bed, Up the Junction and Another Nail In My Heart to name a few. In the words of the first track... 'Take Me I'm Yours, because dreams are made of this'... Top marks to Difford and Tilbrook!

File under Unsung Heroes - Squeeze can have a right go at the title of the UK's most under-appreciated pop/rock band of the last 30 years. This collection showcases their finest moments, from the sublime Annie Get Your Gun and Is That Love to the great cockney rock of Cool for Cats, Up the Junction and Take Me I'm Yours. Notwithstanding the geezer personas, Tilbrook and Gifford are gifted songsmiths, and this is one seriously good compilation. Look out for Last Time Forever, an undiscovered classic. A must buy cd.

I saw Squeeze in concert in 1981 when I suppose they were at the height of their popularity.
This CD brought it all back, it's a 'must buy' for not just the original fans but new fans too.

A great collection of all their hits, some real gems including Tempted, Take me I'm yours, Slap and Tickle, Up the Junction, Goodbye Girl and many more.

I remember most of the tracks on this CD, all of my favourites are there, catchy tunes where the lyrics actually meant something and amazingly I found I remembered most of them. I'd forgotten how great they were!

I watched Squeeze far too many years ago at the Liverpool Royal Court.Three things stood out,the amazing voice of Glenn Tilbrook,the amazing Jools Holland on Piano and then the appalling language from Jools that continued throughout the entire concert!The music has stood the test of time because the quality of the band shines thro' on every track.This album is at a giveaway price,worth every penny and i just hope Squeeze carry on entertaining is their own unique,quirky way that wants you to hear them time and time again.It's wrong to highlight individual tracks 'cos the whole CD is great.

Hadn't listened to Squeeze in years, in fact, I was never really a big fan of them when they were around! On listening to this, however, I realised just what I was missing - superb album that stands the test of time really well.
