Product Description

Product Description

Featuring the voice of Mary Davis, The S.O.S. Band emerged in 1980 to score an R&B Number 1 with their Tabu Records debut, Take Your Time (Do It Right).

By mid-decade they were among the most successful self-contained R&B groups on the planet, helped by an association with writer-producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis which resulted in hits like "Just The Way You Like It", "The Finest" and the much-revived "Just Be Good To Me".

All their chart hits feature in this definitive 2CD collection, which assembles more than a decade's worth of S.O.S. Band dance floor essentials for the first time in one place.

Format:Audio CD
This review is for the physical 2CD release, not the mp3 download version that people have mentioned in other reviews. The 2CD release comes in a standard double jewel case that is housed in a cardboard slip case. The front foldout insert features a brief essay by Tony Rounce that summarizes the S.O.S. band's history and chart success as well as the cover art for a few of the band's singles.

Here is the track listing with play time (from CD player), and comments on the versions used for this compilation:

Disc 1

01 - Just Be Good To Me (4:12). Edit of "On The Rise" album version with an early fade out. Unlike the "Greatest Hits" 2004 edit, this one has the original acapella intro.
02 - S.O.S. (Dit Dit Dit Dash Dash Dash Dit Dit Dit) (5:30). Album version from "S.O.S.".
03 - Take Your Time (Do It Right) (Part 1) (3:15). **VINYL RIP** Part 1 from "S.O.S." 2013 re-issue.
04 - Groovin' (That's What We're Doin') (4:27). **VINYL RIP** Album version from "S.O.S. III" 2013 re-issue. Apparently, every track on this re-issue was vinyl-sourced! Not sure why they didn't just use the "Greatest Hits" 2004 version, which was NOT a vinyl rip.
05 - Just The Way You Like It (8:46). "Greatest Hits" 2004 version.
06 - There Is No Limit (5:18). Album version from "Too".
07 - Borrowed Love (5:28). Album version from "Sands Of Time".
08 - Weekend Girl (4:20). Single version from "Greatest Hits" 2004.
09 - What's Wrong With Our Love Affair (4:55). Album version from "S.O.S.".
10 - Do It Now (7:06). Album version from "Too".
11 - High Hopes (5:30). **VINYL RIP** Edit from "S.O.S. III" 2013 re-issue.
12 - For Your Love (6:15). Album version from "On The Rise".

Disc 2

01 - The Finest (4:45).

5.0 out of 5 stars SOS Band The Very Best Of 23 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of this band since the 80's. With access to youtube I watch a lot of the videos. But listening to the album and reading the sleeve notes, I find that they are better than I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOS Band CD 13 Dec 2013
By Rob W
Format:Audio CD
Although I have only heard.the first 3 songs from cd 1 I disagree that any are vinyl rips. Perhaps the problem is with transfers to mp3?

For those who like this kind of sound from the 80's it's superb and nostalgic at the same time. I recommend to all the lovers of this beat.

If you like the S.O.S Bands sounds from the 80's then you could not ask for anything else, every track that either had you dancing or just laying back relaxing to that distinctive S.O.S Band sound - do it right and be good to me.
