Wow! Just recieved this latest Squeeze compilation / overview in the post today and it certainly doesn't dissapoint. It's a cracking CD which comes complete with lavish packaging in the form of a hard-back glossy cover along with a lush 24 page colour booklet. It contains informed sleeve notes, quotes, photos and memorabilia supplied by life-long Squeeze afficionado David Bailey (thanks Dave!). Even if you're a Squeeze nut like myself and already own these tracks, it really is worth buying this product anyway. Why? Well, for starters, the songs have been digitally remastered and sound superb - in fact I don't think I've ever heard them sound so fresh, crisp, and timeless.
Secondly, the aforementioned packaging really is top-notch.........and thirdly, the low cost of this compilation makes it an absolute bargain and well worth the pennies.
It's also worth mentioning: even if you're a relative newcomer to the world of Squeeze, this double CD compilation makes an excellent starting point to re-discover one of the UK's best and most affectionately remembered (and missed) bands.
Well done A&M / Universal records. More please!
