This album, released in 1998, collects together 16 of the folk rockers' chart successes, and is perfect for the newbie fan or the casual listener. To bigger fans like myself, the real gems can be found on the studio albums (in particular, their masterpiece Levelling the Land). This is certainly more 'greatest hits' than a 'best of', and if you enjoy the music here, I recommend that you purchase a few of the studio albums to be able to fully appreciate the Levellers.
Despite it essentially being a collection of the obvious tracks, what you have here is still a rather interesting release, as some songs appear as remixes ('Hope Street') or re-recordings (the indie anthem 'One Way' sounds excellent), mixed in with the original single version, including my personal favourites, the rocking 'Fifteen Years', and beautiful 'Julie'.
If you need just one Levellers album in your collection (which you should do as they are a first class band), you've found it here.
1. One Way (5/10) - This is a re-recording of the classic song and although it sounds better it just seems to lake the energy of the original.
2. Beautiful Day (6/10) - Many fans hate this song for its commercial sound, i think it served a purpose, but its all some people know of the band, which is sad, a good sing along none the less
3. Fifteen Years (9/10) - Arguably their best song and, as far as im aware their best selling single, a real grower, true magic!
4. Shadow on the Sun (2/10) - should have been a b-side, at best, one of the original tracks on the LP, trundles along and never really gets anywhere
5. Hope Street (6/10) Good Single, again a grower, not my favorate though.
6. Belaruse (4/10) This single came from the self titled 3rd Lp (the bands worst)
7. Celebrate (6/10) A lovely little song about love ahhh
8. Too Real (8/10) One of their best, takes a few listens to sink in but one of their most intelligent songs, spoilt only on this disk by being the 12inch version, which seems like it will never finish!
9. Bozos (4/10) The second song unique to this Lp, bizzare use of techno type beats. Odd.
10. This Garden (6/10) Spoken lyric verses nice chorus. Different from the typic levellers track.
11. Carry Me (10/10) Excellent song, re-recording takes nothing away. Brilliant.

Was gutted when my casette (a funny magnetic thing to the yonger shoppers) broke of this album. Really struggled to replace but with thanks to FDR here it is. Read morePublished on 4 Feb. 2013 by gary in the sticks
