Format: Audio CD
This is one of the most under rated bands of the last 20 years. They produced consistently good music and, many of their best tracks are included on this album. Although the title track was there biggest hit, it was not really typical of their music and there are much better tracks to be found elsewhere on this CD. The whole band were brilliantly accomplished musicians (great guitars, horns & piano) Many of the tracks were produced by Eric Stewart of 10cc and the lead singer Paul Young (more recently of Mike & The Mechanics) had a great voice. Just 4 stars because only the shortened version of the Jaggeresque "My Oh My" has been included.
Play loud for best results.

only bought it for the "every day" track. not particularly keen on the others. had the original album which had every day on it, years ago on vinyl, and i preferred the other tracks on that. these may be the greatest hits of sad cafe but they are not, in my opinion, the best tracks they have recorded.

A Great Band at their best 31 Dec 2000
By A Music lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album collects the best of Sad Cafe's early UK releases and presents them in a bite-sized chunk for today's audience. The set only covers their RCA releases (A&M in the U.S.) but includes all their big UK hits - Everyday Hurts, My Oh My, La-di-da, Nothing Left Toulouse, Strange Little Girl etc. Unfortunately, the selection misses out their biggest U.S. hit "Run Home Girl" which wasn't a single in the UK but this is available on the two for one release on Renaissance which has the whole of their Facades album and the U.S. version of Misplaced Ideals. With the recent death of their lead vocalist, Paul Young, this is a timely anthology which might inspire RCA to release their "Ole" album which is also one of their finest hours.

Sad Indeed! 7 May 2000
By Ralph Quirino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's "greatest hits" packages like this that leave many fans wondering in awe about how songs get chosen for these type of things. Sad Cafe's best moment was "Run Home Girl", a Hall & Oates-styled pop song with cool vocals, nice sax bits and a wailing synth/guitar solo that brought British rock and American soul together in fine fashion. MISPLACED IDEALS and FACADE were the band's two biggest albums (both for A&M) and both are on a 2-disc reissue via Renaissance which is a superb buy and complete value-for-dollar CD. This set, however, is downright SAD. It doesn't contain "Run Home Girl" or any of the really great songs from FACADE. It limps along with a majority of cuts from far inferior albums the band released for RCA when the vim and vinegar were long-gone. Contrary to the nice cover and the full title of this so-called "anthology", this isn't the set you really want of you're a fan of this fine seventies Britpop band.
Lacking...... 29 Sep 2009
By Music4Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This compilation does little to give the listener an accurate picture of just how good this band was. The track selection is questionable and the sound quality is mediocre at best. As of September 2009, new import 2-fer remasters are available and all 4 albums included are really good, especially "Fanx Ta-ra" & "Misplaced Ideals". I have them on order and am anxious to hear how well they've been upgraded sonically.
The "Misplaced Ideals"/"Facades" 2-fer on Renaissance is also a worthy buy. The sound on those CD's is quite good. (Trivia bit: The title of the "Facades" album is an anagram of Sad Cafe) This was a solid band with excellent songs, great harmonies and fine musicianship. I'm happy to see this stuff available again.
