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

For 30 years SOS have made irresistible music that’s always been loved by their fans, but largely underappreciated by critics in their own country. Corrine is unquestionably one of our finest singers and Andy is a great arranger, on a par with Richard Carpenter. What about the most important thing – the songs. Well I guess SOS could have been a bit more prolific in terms of output, but this strategy was never going to appeal to a couple of musicians whose modus operandi is based on quality and attention to detail. Over the years SOS have recorded so many gorgeous songs and many of the best ones are showcased in this collection. My favourites are: Twilight World, Fooled By A Smile along with excellent versions of La La (Means I Love You) and Am I The Same Girl.
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....
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!
it is a sublime compilation
please, notice the outstanding tracks:
Notgonnachange (Frankie Knuckles Classic Club Mix)
Waters Of March (with Akiko) (single edit) - Swing Out Sister & Akiko
Forever Blue (Previously unreleased Big Band version)
