Format: Audio CD
This appealing collection contains twenty tuneful songs from a band that deserved to have had greater success. Oh well, at least their demise gave us Eurythmics! There is depth, poetics & magic in their compositions and arrangements. Every track is special in its own way, from the sublime neo-psychedelic Blind Among The Flowers and the melancholic Loneliest Man In The World (from their first album) to the fast-paced I Only Want To Be With You and So Good To Be Back Home Again to the eerie excursion In The Morning When The Madness Has Faded which ends in a chilling howl (from the 2nd album Reality Effect).

There's more psychedelia in Angels & Demons, the pop is perfect on the aforementioned cover I Only Wanna Be With You and So You Want To Go Away Now (from the 3rd album Luminous Basement) whilst dub & reggae influences surface on Aint No Room. On certain tracks they have an almost Byrds-like sound with chiming, jangling guitars and soaring vocal harmonies. Although I like every single song, the following also deserve special mention: All Life's Tragedies, Don't Say I Told You So, Everywhere You Look & It Doesn't Have Be This Way.

There is one omission, Walls & Foundations, which makes their Luminous Basement album essential still; being a magnificent work, it is well worth seeking out for fans of Lennox & Stewart. They went on to release the highly experimental first Eurythmics album

Format: Audio CD
I first saw The Tourists when they backed Roxy Music in 1979. I liked their melodies and jangling guitars and ultimately, bought the first two albums. Both were very listenable without being mind blowing. Some tracks (Blind Among The Flowers) really stood out, while others were pretty cringeworthy (So Good to be Back Home Again). Sold all my vinyl many years ago and recently thought I'd look up the two Tourists albums on CD. I can find Reality Effect but not the first album which doesn't appear to be available on CD.

Most of the best tracks appear to be on this Greatest Hits album: Blind Among the Flowers, Deadly Kiss, Another English Day but I'm disappointed that In My Mind There's Sorrow is not on there, which was one of my favourite tracks. I guess I may just download my favourite tracks if I can. Generally, I preferred Annie Lennox on vocals as Pete Coombe's inability to pronounce his 'Rs' did grate somewhat but In My Mind was a beautiful song!

I was shocked to learn of the death of Pete Coombes in the late 90s. RIP mate. I'll raise a glass to you when I give your songs a listen again.

Format: Audio CD
There are several songs (mainly the early stuff) that I can't say that I remember, but in the main the songs on the CD are brilliant and I wish that there was more music being made today of this quality.
If you liked The Stranglers, The Who or Roxy Music, you'll find a few songs that have a similar sound - and plenty that don't.
If you liked All About Eve, this CD will show you where AAE got their basic direction.
If you were / are a fan of the Eurythmics, then you won't be disappointed with this CD; Annie's and Dave's talents are just as apparent as in the best that they have done since.
BUY THIS CD!

Lots of stuff you might only listen to once, but worth every penny for "Blind among the flowers"; "So good to be back home again" and of course "I only wanna be with you".

Please play the previews and judge for yourself.

Is there a better intro to a song than blind among the flowers?
The Tourists made 3 good studio albums but never quite got the credit they deserved.

I have to say I jumped at the chance of buying this album, but on listening to it, other than the songs that I remembered as a kid, there is not much else on the album that really sticks out. I have to say that I dont remember the tourists having that many hits to produce a greatest hits album and I think that comes through on some of the dodgy tracks, overall the songs that are good are really good and the songs that are bad are really bad with a couple of inbetweenies!

Shame their earlier CDs are so hard to get hold of. Time to re-issue I think.
