A must for anyone who is capable of thought, this collection will stun you on its first hearing (this is normal, it will always happen), the lyrics/poems having a raw power that will make you wonder why you have never been able to write as he can. Scared of no-one, there can be no doubt JCC is fearless in what he does write, but that's not to be thought of as arrogance in any way at all, no, it's observation of the highest order - he has something to say for sure. As for others here commenting on the music accompanying the words, I can only say that the strident/near discordant style actually enhances the tracks for me, in that respect Beasley Street is a tour de force - it's not music plus lyrics, it's music times lyrics. A great collection from an unsung hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Jimmy, gimme the gimmix!!! 10 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you were unlucky enough to be born too late and you missed this wonderful man the first time around, now's your chance to get up to speed.

If you've ever wondered what all the old 40-somethings are talking about when this guy's name crops up, buy this album and clue yourself in - you'll love yourself for doing it.

His poems and delivery are unique.

Fans will argue endlessly about what constitutes a Johhny Clarke 'best of' but this offering will bring joy and laughter to anyone who has a funny-bone in their body regardless.

Be nice to yourself...

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't wanna be nice 28 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
It is true that the music gets in the way sometimes - "Evidently Chicken Town" is a case in point - but his poetry is so much better than most lyrics that I am ready and willing to put up with the background noise. And some of the music works just fine.
It may all be a freak of chance - a Mancunian scally wag getting on stage at a time when anyone could, but he is great - he doesn't hold back, so don't moan about his Dylan '66 hair, just open your ears.
Mmmmmm 'Lyrics', 'Poetry' or 'Rap'? It doesn't matter he knocks you out with the bitter & twisted self-deprecating witty truth from the backstreets of a town near you.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Cooper Clarke - Best of 9 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this CD after watching a documentry him on BBC4 and to combine the best of his works that I have currently on vinyl. I had almost forgotten how good he is and it's is great to shout/sing along to all these in the car. One of my best buys of the year love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 14 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are so many JCC tracks that could go on a greatest hits compilation; the compilers have done an excellent job with this release putting on the tracks that they have. If there is anybody out there who is not familiar with JCC's work, buy this and you will not regret it.

Why don't they forget the band & just let the man speak. Irritating & annoying backing ruins these great poems.
