It’s 1973 in South London. Teenage friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook form the band that will see them dubbed ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’. Over 35 years later, with their legacy intact and as vital as it has ever been, Squeeze are still touring and reminding fans worldwide just why they have left such an indelible impression on the UK’s music scene.

What a shame Squeeze never realised their commercial potential. A serious image problem (ie - they never had one) being the only explanation I can find. One thing is for certain; their songs were not to blame. Just listen to the brilliance of most of these tracks if you need any proof. Their entire career is represented here with the exception of anything from their best album "Play" and last album "Domino" (neither released on A&M). Although the only real hit on this compilation is the title track, the album's content is meaty enough with a few quirky surprises thrown in for good measure: The beautiful Vanity Fair (1981), the laddish It's So Dirty (1979) and reggae-tinged By Your Side (1985) have little in common stylistically, yet all point to a sharp observational wit on the part of Chris Difford and an astounding melodic versatility courtesy of Mr. Glenn Tilbrook. The album finishes with the excellent "Electric Trains" (1995), the single that Radio 1 refused to playlist because they assumed their audience wouldn't relate to its "middle aged" theme (growing up). This was to prove one frustration too many for their record company and despite one record on their own label since, they have pretty much called it a day. Still... this is a must for the curious and a stop gap for the fans waiting for Tilbrook's debut solo album due later this year.

That's a fair question in my opinion, or to make myself clear: What kind of of compilation is this? Well, it's not a "greatest hits", it's not a "very best of" or an "ultimate collection", and it's not a rarities/B-sides compilation. But what it really is, that's harder to say. It could be some compiler's favourite Squeeze tracks but it might as well be the first 19 tracks randomly chosen by a CD jukebox filled with Squeeze CD's. If the latter is the case we could have at least five or six more compilations like this one before every Squeeze song has been picked. I don't see the point.My 3 star rating is not based on the musical content, but on the compilation as such. Saying that 3 stars might be one too many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Squeeze 17 Nov 2012
By Phirrip
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If your a Squeeze fan then this is one of their greats. The 'First Thing Wrong' was 'Annie' had to go 'Up the Junction' to 'Talk to Him' about his 'Points of View' and he said 'Goodbye Girl'. The only thing left was 'Annie' had to get her 'Gun'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good single disc overview of essential English rock band 11 July 2003
By Wayne Klein - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Essential. That about says it all. Squeeze tasted a fair amount of success in the UK and a little bit in the US but not what they truly deserved. Combine sharp, witty songwriting by Chris Difford (mostly words) and Glenn Tilbrook (mostly music); a singer with an appealing tone to his voice (Tilbrook)and great melodies and you've got this classic band that thrived during the early 80's, slumped during the late 80's and made a glorius return to form in the early 90's.
These singles give you a snapshot of this band over time. In many respects, it's like looking through an artbook devoted to a single artist; you can see how they develop over time but you also begin to appreciate the craft and style as well. While a multi-disc set would be preferrable for this great band, it's not likely to happen again any time soon. It's a pity as Difford & Tilbrook (who pretty much comprised Squeeze as they were only the only consistent members throughtout its long run and wrote almost all the material)deserve much better.
This covers just about every phase of the band. We begin with a peak into their neo-new wave beginnings through to their signature sound (warm, witty songwriting with an a R&B edge to it)and some of the dramatic changes they went through. Highly recommended.
3.0 out of 5 stars What's here is good, but missing many of my favorites 12 Jun 2013

This is a slight overview, but what's here is good. There are other, and better anthologies out there. Not a bad listen, though.
