Without a doubt this is a great collection of hits by Mike and the Mechanics. And although the original albums may be great, this compilation is the best release since it brings together the best tracks. And this release showcases not only the great hits, but also the wealth of talent involved. Mike Rutherford first became famous through the work with the group Genesis. Here he joins the Mechanics. All the songs are credited to being written by Mike, together with either B A Robertson, Christopher Neil or Paul Carrack.
Mike Rutherford, Paul Carrack and Paul Young with support bring us great tracks like "All I Need Is A Miracle", "Silent Running", "The Living Years", "A Time And A Place", "Word Of Mouth", "Over My Shoulder", "A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold" and "Another Cup OF Coffee". This is a great selection of tracks that makes a great album in its own right.
