4.0 out of 5 stars From Sunset Boulevard to Chateaulait 6 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Poor old Love and Money! They possessed too much intelligence to play the record company game, yet were dismissed by the "hip" press as being a teeny bopper band, a kind of watered down Hipsway. In truth this fine compliation shows James Grant's band to be purveyors of tastefully (in the main) assembled music for mature and thoughtful people - hence the poor sales. The album draws on material from all 4 LP's plus a couple of non-LP songs. The running order isn't in chronological order so the listener misses out tracing the growth of the band. Their first releases were cluttered and bombastic and haven't dated very well. "Candybar Express" is as mid-80's as "Wall Street". Things improve with the "Strange Kind of Love" material. Produced by Steely Dan whizz, Gary Katz, the sound is smooth, discreet yet adds an edginess to Grant's songs of elusive love. The band's playing is at turns jazzy but not meandering, funky but not silly. Eventually garnering respectable sales there was no breakthrough single and Grant had missed his opportunity of achieving the fame of his contemporaries like Roddy Frame. Nonetheless, L&M devotees were rewarded with the "Dogs in the Traffic" set which probably contained even stronger song writing and also the introduction of folkish elements to the mix (but don't let that put you off). After the commercial failure of "Dogs...", the band were dropped by Fontana. The final L&M release came out in the Iona Gold label. The songs on "littledeath" were darker than previous material, although there was always a dash of despair in Grant's craft. If you like well played, tasteful, intelligent pop then you could do a lot worse than to buy this cd.

3.0 out of 5 stars Greatness in patches 27 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
I am slightly disappointed by this "best of" mainly because the 1988 album (Strange Kind of love) seemed to indicate a truly talented and inventive band (at a time when this was uncool). What emanated from that album was a series of wonderful, message-driven tunes that were very much out of place in an era of Johnny Hates Jazz et al. "Strange Kind of love" has one of the most affecting intros of any song I know...slow, moving, guitar-led, deliberate drum beat etc. Other prominent numbers from the aforementioned album are "Halleluiah man" and "Jocelyn Street". Both are excellent. One major omission is "State of Things to come" one of the band's most celebrated, lyrically-strong songs.
The best of the rest ? - "River of people" and "looking for Angeline"..
Maybe this album isn't a fair reflection on the band. "Best of's" rarely are.
But, at times, greatness shone through!

I have loved this band's music ever since I picked up the single "Jocelyn Square" years ago. Aside from a used copy of the album it came from (Strange Kind of Love), I have not seen any L&M CD's in the US. I'm glad I ordered this for import. It's great to finally hear music from the scope of the band's career, and all the songs I would have chosen from the album I have are included here. Witty yet dark, mature yet danceable, I cannot get enough of this album. "Hallelujiah Man" (which must be an ode to Guy Fawkes) is a particular stand-out, as are "The Last Ship On The River," "Wanderlust 2" and "Sometimes I Want To Give Up." I find that I keep putting this CD on when I cannot think of what I want to listen to. Maybe I should just leave it in the changer.

5.0 out of 5 stars why is this band not enjoying global success 11 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
love and money grew out of the ashes of friends again-a superb 80's scottish pop act which divided when chris thompson formed the bathers and james grant l & m many great things were predicted for love and money but so many wrong choices for singles ultimately camoflaged their true songwriting and performing talent. masterpieces such as 'winter''jocelyn square' and'last ship on the river' are worth the price of this c.d alone. any orange juice/lloyd cole/texas/ fans will love love and money----five stars
