Format: Audio CD
I absolutely LOVE Lindisfarne, and if you are new to their music then you're in for a major treat, assuming you have a folk-rock inclination. This is a wonderful selection of Lindisfarne tracks, and I should know, I grew up listening to these songs every day. This is fantastic music.
But let's discuss the actual merits of this release by EMI. My reviews focus on the sound quality of discs and they are regularly veto-ed by Amazon.co.uk for the simple reason that they are generally unfavourable. For some reason the guidelines on customer reviews dictate that you should not talk about the sound quality! How perverse and potentially fatal is that?
Compact discs have now been remastered three even four times already, and unless customers can keep tracks on which version they are about to buy, they will get rapidly disillusioned, as I have. Online vendors like Amazon MUST get this information absolutely correct; they must TELL US!
This review of mine will probably be veto-ed as well. Because the simple truth is that after releasing this exact collection in 1989 (adding just a couple of worthless "Bonus" tracks) it has been re-issued in "2003", without ANY attempt at remastering. I have been mislead. I'm writing this so that YOU won't be mislead.
This is not a fabulous "2003" remastering of a brilliant collection of Lindisfarne's best tracks.....this is the same lousy 1989 engineering standard that (surely!) we are all beginning to recognise as the greatest failure in product standards ever known in the music industry. Maybe any industry!
Amazon! - allow this review because you have customers with decent Hi-Fi's and decent EARS!
EMI Gold - Shame On You! You couldn't even spend the money on a remastering job FOURTEEN years on! That's disgraceful.

Forget all of the sub-standard Lindisfarne compilations on the market which regularly contain live versions of their Charisma-era tracks. This is a collection of the Charisma material in it's original form including the hits 'Meet Me On The Corner', 'Lady Eleanor' & 'All Fall Down' along with the well-known 'Fog On The Tyne' + selected album tracks & B-sides. An added bonus is the inclusion of two previously unreleased Alan Hull-penned tracks. 'Sleeping' has a laidback vibe & is driven along by a melodic bassline. It's got a bit of a Lovin' Spoonful 'Daydream' feel to it, with quite a John Lennon-esque lead vocal from Hull & some great harmonies during the chorus. Even better is the slow & bluesy stomper 'Love In A Cage' which clocks in at 4:43 & contains some terrific harmonica & excellent vocal harmonies. The CD is smartly packaged & drummer Ray Laidlaw tells the history of the band in the sleevenotes.

Short and simple, any CD which has the best songs from the first three albums on it is a must for all of the long standing Lindisfarne fans with dog eared copies of Fog on The Tyne.
It is just nice to here all of the old stuff again with out the static from the much played LPs.
BUY IT!

They brought a lot of fun to 70's/80's music

But there was some damn good songwriting and melodies.Alan Hull the main mover in the band is dead but his and the band's legacy lives on and on and on

If you were lucky enough to catch one of the band's immortal Christmas shows at Newcastle City hall you'd understand.............

Format: Audio CD
The Folk-Rock Group were formed back in '1968' calling themselves originally 'Brethren'
The 'Newcastle upon Tyne' outfit who though with cast-changes continue to perform to
this day.
The Group first entered the U.K Charts back in 1972 with the number 'Meet Me On The
Corner' which peaked at Number '5' then came the release that first caught my personal
attention 'Lady Eleanor' which, also in 1972 reached Number '3' in the Charts.
The Group had success with a series of album releases also around that time, 'Fog on the
Tyne' actually topped the album charts in 71' however the title song of that album didn't
chart until 1990, when a re-hash of the song, sung with 'Paul Gascoigne' charted at '2'
Among the Chart entries early on 'All Fall Down' which reached number '34' again in '72'
They had to wait until '78' to re-emerge in the U.K charts with a couple of numbers that
are not actually included on-board 'Run For Home' (Chart 10) and 'Juke-Box Gypsy' ,,,,
The album reflects the best known songs from the group during their early years, holding
memories of those days.

Glad i bought this so i can decide the tracks i like and buy the original albums, recording very thin and almost pirate like, come on EMI, either buck your ideas up, or scratch the EMI GOLD series, Update November 2013. I should have updated this review in 2009 when i bought a decent cd player. The sound quality is very good if played on a decent player, the cheap player gave a poor sound quality but then a lot of my cds sounded fine its just this one didn't, ah well all is fine now.

There ARE people with decent hi fi and (in my case) half-decent ears, and having played this CD through my Copland/Audio Note set-up, as soon as my ears stopped bleeding I rushed off to get out the original LPs and give them a spin - they have rarely been off the turntable since - perhaps this ghastly recording serves some purpose after all, if you have a Little Pink Thing to fall back on (hi fi joke)... as for everyone else, the better your hi fi, the more you love Lindisfarne, the greater will be your suffering... sorry...

EMI? I'll have to send you all to jail for doing this terrible thing
