5.0 out of 5 stars At last...! 21 Jun 2013
For me the bonus inclusion of Bob Fish's solo tracks more than make up for the couple or so hiccups which the previous review made note of. Hotel, from July 1982 is a stand-out track & it's great that this and most of the other tracks have been lifted from the original masters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly entertaining, but... 3 July 2013

Music 5***** Booklet and Research 3***

If you remember Darts, you won't be disappointed by this two cd set. One of the unluckiest bands ever (Three No.2 singles in a row), they sold more concert tickets than any other British band in 1978. If you are passing through I would urge you to buy this or any of the Darts cds now available (The Drumfire ones are recommended), you will be more familiar than you realise with some of their smaller hits and will find yourself singing along to the big hits.

Booklet and Research:
I'm probably nit-picking, but there are errors in the booklet and the versions of some of the tracks used. As a previous reviewer mentioned, Sh-Boom, Peaches and Bones are all the wrong versions. In the booklet, there's no listing for Dart Attack in the Album Discography and bass player Thump Thomson is referred to as Thompson throughout. There are other things, Thump was with John Dummer's band for many years but that's not mentioned, Hammy leaving isn't mentioned, Kenny wasn't on Don't Let It Fade Away (he mimed it on the telly), and just for clarity Stan mimed on Peaches when it was released in 1981 after Bob had left. Although the cd cover is very colourful, at first glance I can only make out two singles, Duke Of Earl and Peaches. Surely the singles covers for the big hits should have been more prominent to persuade the casual buyer to invest? It's not all bad, every single cover is pictured inside the booklet and there's some notes about each single included.

In Summary:
If it's all about the music, buy it, you will be thoroughly entertained. Doo-Wop, Blues, Rock, Pop, Comedy and many other genres are featured as played by this multi-talented and underrated group.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great clarity-poor research 20 Jun 2013
One of the best compilations out of the many now available for this seldom played band, although as a singles collection, the researches simply have made mistakes. Bones is not the b side version. (No 'bone' clicks and sh boom is the Den version not the kenny version that appeared as a double A side. Debates over the Peaches version included on this cd as well. So good try, nice sound, but not a difinitive singles collection. Highlights....bob fish and Hotel and DIY heartache on cd for the first time. .
