Product Description

Product Description

UB40 have spent the last few years doing what many bands in such an exalted position would do. Having sold over 50 million albums and become global superstars, they have spread their wings and diversified.

They have collaborated with Jamaica's dancehall legends and worked with the fathers of reggae. In 2003, they even recorded "Swing Low", the anthem for the England rugby team's triumphant World Cup campaign.

This year saw the band release their 23rd album Who You Fighting For on the 25th anniversary of their recording debut, to much acclaim. Entering the charts at no. 20, the UK press overwhelmingly described the album as a true return to form. Their Live 8 performance was given 10/10 and described as the best performance by The Mirror.

This 2CD compilation features both of their previous best of albums plus "Swing Low" and "Kiss and Say Goodbye".

UB40 have been a constant within the music scene for almost 3 decades by now. The first 15 years they were constant hit makers with consistent album sales. It seems that after that period, all of a sudden their time as a big selling artist was up as if the public had had enough.

These 2 CDs cover that period in a thorough manner. Basically, the CDs are simply re-issues of their Best of collections, volume 1 & 2, put into a single packaging. Two songs, Swing Low and Kiss & Say Goodbye are tacked at the end of volume 2; both songs would have been hits had UB40 still retained the popular appeal. Every UB40 Top 20 hit in the UK is here, i.e. until 1995, plus a few other notable singles (excluding Swing Low, UB40 have only had two other minor Top 20 hits since then). The only omission I notice is The Way You Do the Things You Do. It is one of their best known songs in the US but did not, however, even manage for some reason to crack the Top 40 in the UK, making the omission understandable. By excluding that period the listener also is spared the awful cover of Light My Fire included on their Very Best of 1980-2000 collection.

Their music has aged very well and many songs are becoming standard classics, even ones that were standards in other versions. In short, if you like UB40, even casually, this is the set to buy.

I am, still, deducting a star from this great set. It seems that despite being released in 2005, i.e. this combined version of the two volumes, the sound has not been re-mastered in accordance to current standards. My old Volume 1 CD has the exact same sound quality as the version on the volume 1 disk in this set.

I own the US version of the Very Best of 1980-2000 collection and took a few comparison samples. It was unfavourable for this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars This really was the best of 2 Dec 2009
Format:MP3 Download
I bought the very 1st UB40 when it came out on vinyl (yes I am that old!) yet for some reason never bought later albums despite being a fan of the genre and the band. It would be too expensive to get all the missing albums so when I spotted this double it seemed an offer too good to miss and sure enough it truly is the best of. Its given me a good range of tracks at a an excellent price. Nice one.

5.0 out of 5 stars UB40 twin CD. 22 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Everybody must remember UB40 from the 1980's and I bought this double cd album hoping it would remind me of the great music they made, I went to see them in concert last year so this twin album was a warm up to seeing them live on stage for myself - it has all the tracks you would want to hear from them. It contains 34 fantastic tracks from their famous days as a band with ali campbell who is now no longer with them as he has now gone solo, well worth purchasing.
