Product Description

Product Description

Formed in Manchester in 1985, Swing Out Sister's second single 'Breakout' was an international hit and paved the way to many more, including their UK #1 album It's Better To Travel. Ten studio and two live albums later, the group have continued to take their playful amalgam of jazz, funk, soul and orchestral pop into the new millennium. This definitive single disc collection includes many of their best loved tracks, as well as a previously unreleased recording of 'Forever Blue'.


'17 of their finest moments, with remixes and unreleased versions to satisfy devoted fans, plus fine covers including 'Windmills Of Your Mind' and 'Waters Of March'.' --Daily Express

'The songs they craft have all the beauty and catchiness of the best of the Brill Building era. They couldn't have come up with a better title.' --soulandjazzandfunk.com

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Introduction To... But Why Not More? 22 Oct 2014
Excellent collection by most standards although a lot of die hards would've preferred a 2 cd set . SOS were and still are the perfect blend of 60s influenced soundtrack scores and jazz/pop. They've endured the 80s, the 90s and beyond with lushly produced albums that would've made Bacharach/John Barry and Dusty proud. On this set all the big hits from Breakout,Surrender,Twilight World to a newly cut big band version of Forever Blue are present. Hopefully this collection will sell well enough to encourage more back catalogue reissues from the band.

a superlative musical oasis in what seems to be an otherwise dull/mind numbing pop landscape....
been a fan from the first airing of Breakout..(yes, quite a bit long in the tooth i am),
and they've continued to create so many evocative moods which are not only welcomed
but much needed to soothe this mercurial soul....
marvelous album which is a timely preface to their new Pledge release coming soon....

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 23 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase
This is an excellent starting point for the recent or casual SOS listener, as well as an important addition for those devoted long-timers – it captures both the best of their pop sensibilities, as well as the 60s lounge/jazz/Bacharach style at which they excel.

Like previous compilations, nearly half the disc includes the singles from the first 4 albums, but with the welcome addition of the Frankie Knuckles mix of NotGonnaChange.

The rest sees some highlights from the last 15 years, including the rarer single version of Waters of March (to my knowledge, only available on an Akiko CD single). For those who have everything SOS, the new Big Band version of Forever Blue is divine and the reason to purchase it.

My only disappointment with this compilation is the absence of anything from Shapes & Patterns(97), Filth & Dreams(99) and Beautiful Mess(08) – perhaps Corinne & Andy were limited to 17 tracks?

Also worth mentioning are the range of photos, album/single sleeves and liner notes – a wonderful homage to SOS through the years. Thankyou C&A!

All of your favourite ulta-cool tracks brought together in a sleek and stylish collection. It even includes Somewhere Deep In The Night, my personal fave. This is the soundtrack to the sexiest, most romantic European movie that never was.

All my favourites tunes in one quality packaged album with great sleeve notes and photos. This is the album to get if you only take one of theirs on a desert island.
