A great band! They deserved far more than they
actually got in the end. Fronted by the bald,
charismatic vocalist Sal Solo, CN didn't score many UK hits but nontheless wrote some great
songs.
Signed to the now-defunct Liberty/United Artists
label, their relatively short life saw three
studio albums and a substantial live reputation
before they called it a day in the mid 80s, Solo
going er...solo (one hit: San Damiano).
The Robot'sd Dance, their debut single, combined
the sounds of Solo's incredible, almost operatic
vocals, Mik Sweeney's mesmeric fretless bass and
BP (Big Paul) Hurding's Simmonds drumming to
devastating effect with its tempo shift at the end suprising many at the time.
La Verite, the title track of their second album,
is brilliant even now. A ballad examining both
spirituality (it means 'the truth') and unrequited love, it is arguably one of the finest
(and some would say most pompous!) songs they
ever wrote.
The album sounds like a winner with new versions of songs that were already close to perfection.
I saw them live twice and they were great and
what's more, Mik Sweeney is a fellow Merton lad
like me and I used to pass his house on the way
to the dole office in the early 80s!
Cheers and enjoy
Al Ferrier

An updated version of the previous Classix 'best of', this disc features a shuffled track listing and the inclusion of the other 2 big singles 'Tokyo' and the brilliant 'Because You're Young'. The same liner notes from Sal Solo are included alongside some sleeve reproductions and gloriously tacky 80's band photos. Although the image may have waned, the music is still timeless and just as exciting now as when I first heard it. Highly recommended and for this price, unmissable!

Although I already had albums, both on records and CD's, and the first CD compilation, I was glad to get this one.
However, I was disappointed to find that this is one of "Copy Controlled" discs - I make it a point never to buy any such disc and I would have skipped this one had I known about it. This is the first time that I received a similar item when purchasing online.
