Product Description

Suggs is a national institution. He is a front-man, presenter, radio DJ, and all round top bloke. As the lead singer in Madness he has been in the spotlight again in recent years with the Olympics and the Jubilee, and has just completed a tour of his one man show. It is part monologue, part songs and has proven to be a real hit with audiences up and down the country.

The Suggs Selection is a 60 track album personally compiled by Suggs. There is soul, reggae, ska and classic pop. This is what he has to say about it:

"What joy and pain it has been in equal measures boiling a forty year love affair with popular music, down to sixty tracks. Pop music has become a dirty word in certain circles. But pop stands for popular, as in, music people like. So although you will find some eclectic stuff that I hope may come as some surprise, it is mostly good solid songs that have got me going down the years.

And like one of those Friday nights for which I'm still famous for round my way, instead of waking up to 45's and CDs scattered all over the living room floor, now all you need is this album for an instant party. I've done all the work of trying to put the right things back in the right covers. Songs are instant reminders of where you were at any given moment in your life. Your first dance, snog, pair of tasty shoes, youth club disco, lights out smooch, house party, gig - they're all here. Just make sure you don't get them in the wrong order! "

Great albums. Cannot stop smiling and jigging around much to the embarrassment of my family. So many great tracks and no turkeys. THANK YOU SUGGS. An instant collection and party.

Suggs brought us wonderful music with Madness for over thirty years. This album is a collection of his selection of music with various talents and different genres. Suggs Selection is an ideal purchase for many DJ's doing a wedding or a birthday party.

A collection of carefully chosen music spanning a couple of decades, if you are not at least tapping your foot then I am afraid you are dead already. Anyone who lived through the 60's, 70's and 80's will appreciate the platters on offer here.
What can I say, if you love music like I do and these songs resonate with you I would not hesitate to buy it. It plays like a wedding dj, sometimes cheesy but always gets you singing along and foot tapping.
I hope that if you buy this you will enjoy it as much as me. Cherish the music and relive the memories, don the rose tinted glasses and go for it.

There is absolutely no question that Suggs has put together a mighty collection here.

This is an intelligent and thoughtful selection of songs which embrace Ska (of course), two-tone, reggae, the jazz age, punk and more besides. There are some true gems (including the fabulous 'Green Onions') as well as some lesser known songs, all of which hang together nicely side by side.

This triple album collection is very neatly and nicely packaged in a fold-out sleeve.

For a fiver getting 60 songs is excellent value but getting 60 songs with so many classics amongst them is unbeatable.

OK so I've already got a few of the songs elsewhere, there's still dozens that I didn't have that I can now listen to and enjoy!

This CD shows that as well as being the lead vocalist in one of this nation's greatest ever pop bands he's also quite a connoisseur of music.

I saw this advertised on the TV and thought I would get it for my Husband for his birthday in August. Some of the songs bought back memories and I like Suggs lol.

I bought this a while back stupidly I mentioned it to my children and they thought it would be a good idea to give it to him for Fathers day, so I am now looking for something for his birthday again!!!!
