Having grown up with listening to Paul weller (as well as the police,xtc,madness and so on)since I was at high school this is a great collection of his second outing (the first being the jam 1977-1982 who were outstanding)
My only regret is that 'money go round' is the 12 inch version (I much prefered the 12 inch of long hot summer) but beggers can't be choosers
Speak like a child,long hot summer,my ever changing. Moods,your the best thing and shout to the top are Paul wellers better days with the council
Shame there wasn't the council collective single 'soul deep' on this disc.
This really is a class selection of the style council singles with Steve white only 17 when tsc started in 1983 on drums and ex meeting parka man Mr.mick talbot on piano/keyboards and wellers first wife to be Dee c. Lee ( who released the brilliant 'see the day' single.
What id like to see is a doulble cd of the style council to include all the singles best b-sides and album tracks in the tradition of the jams 'snap'
Go and jams greatest hits the style council singles and Paul wellers greatest hits and you won't be disappointed at all.
