I was very much into the original Two Tone explosion and updated my collection onto cd over the years, Specials , Madness etc but I realised that the often ignored Bad Manners had not received the treatment. Whilst seeking their music online I quickly realised that it is really difficult to find cd's of their original albums. There are loads of 'greatest hits' and the like but many seem to also have ropey 'live' recordings on them too.
This album seems to have the true best of from when I originally listened to Bad Manners. When I played it the memories all came flooding back and I remembered just how good Doug Trendle and the boys were. They actually had loads of big hits and were Top of the Pops regulars for years. In all a hugely enjoyable double cd, well worth the money, and good to listen to a great band whom I feel have been neglected musically over the years.

Imagine your worst thoughts to a maybe not favourite but certainly once favoured band. A best of cd (good so far), lets remix many of the tracks (oh no) and arrange the cd so that it plays from start to finish in one go with each song mixing 'flawlessly' into each other in a jive bunny style (whhaatt???). Truly a desecration of anyones material. Virtually nothing is left as originally intended (true bad manners were never the 'top' of the pops but even so) with ridiculously cack-handed and cheap 'remix' tricks - as I played the cd first time around I thought it was my memory that was playing tricks as old school-hop faves played not quite as remembered. Turned out it was the cd. May the Good Lord hope they don't do this to anyone else's back catalogue. Buster must have upset someone. Good manners may cost nothing but even at this price it's truly bad.

An excellent release by a nearly-forgotten classic band. Bad Manners were stereotyped as the novelty act of the 2-Tone period, but if you listen to this double album you'll struggle to understand why.

Here is an album of fantastic music, of solid music, music you can dance to, music you can listen to again and again, with just that little edge of stupidity to it.

These CDs are full of classics: two top-fives, two top-tens, some top-twenties, top-forties, and a host of album tracks that demonstrate that Buster & co were more than the mere clowns they were made out to be. A quick check of their 'hayday' albums will show that they tended towards a rough 50-50 mix of originals and cover versions, much like many of the 2-Tone ska bands they were associated with, and many of those covers are included here; but take out the tracks they didn't compose and you'll still have more than a single CD's worth of true brilliance here.

If you compare this album with their only other (to date) 'genuine' singles-retrospective, "Magnetism: the Very Best of Bad Manners", you'll find some small but important differences. The first is the most obvious: this is a double CD, whereas "Magnetism" is only one disc. The second (and only real negative to this collection) is that "Magnetism" contains the brilliant single "That'll Do Nicely", and this compilation weirdly misses it out. This is easily made up for however by the next difference: on "WITS - The Best Of...", you'll find the discs packed with high quality album tracks and B-sides that you'll struggle to find elsewhere.

This album is a disaster!
I've always liked the Baddies and I wanted to get a CD replacement for all those worn out cassettes with all the hits and best bits. This is not the album I should have bought.
This is a collection of very badly mixed live recordings re-recordings with just one original studio track (Skaville UK). The live recordings are appalling, some seems to have been recorded on a hand held cassette recorder, complete with auto recording level and some are even MONO! The mixes are far from professionally done - a sellotape and razor job. For example a space filler is a live version of Cider Drinker/Paloma Blanca. It has the introduction crudely re-spliced in order to pad the track out so that it covers a full 56 seconds in its entirety!
It seems as if all the hits are here, but 25 tracks with a total playing time of just under 50 minutes including two lousey 5 minute remixes and six tracks under a minute long (three under 30 seconds!) should have given the game away to me.
I spent £1.89 on this CD. Save your money, go for a bus ride instead!

Well................To Start With..........This Is FAR FAR Better Than The "Special Brew" Best of That Came Out A Few Years Ago....By a COUNTRY Mile............Not ONLY Do We have ALL the Singles ( ....Including Some NOT On "Special Brew " i.e-- Just a Feeling, Walking In The Sunshine, Lorraine, Can Can, etc etc )........But ALSO we have Some Of Those FABULOUS Album Tracks From The First Albums AND B-sides!!!............I LOVED "Ben E Wriggle" And I have Been Searching For This For YEARS on CD...................FINALLY its Out :)

This Collection Completely ECLIPES "Special Brew" In My Opinion ....And I Have to Say............At The Current Price...This Is an Absolute STEAL Considering You get 36 Tracks..... This 2 Disc CD Gives Everything About What Bad Manners Were ALL About In Their heyday................

They may have Have Been Seen as a "Joky" Band In Their Heyday............But Actually They Were BRILLIANTLY Musical As well..................Buster Bloodvessel Will Be LOVING this Review!!!!....Lol

Seriously Though...............If You LOVE Bad manners and Their Style Of Ska...............You Will LOVE This Collection, Between This And "Special Brew" ...There Is NO Contest! Get it NOW!!!! Whilst Its In Stock!
