5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST BUY
This album is an essential purchase for anyone who loves the Style Council or indeed music. It contains some great songs which are not contained on any other TSC release and in particular My Very Good Friend which ranks with any of the group's mighty classics.

1.0 out of 5 stars They should have locked it away, indeed ...
This postmortally issued compilation is in my eyes a let down, not in the first place because of its concept (the b-sides and rarities thing actually works well with The Jam Extras compilation that was issued earlier) but because of the absence of quality songs on it: Apart from the acceptable b-sides "Big boss groove" and "Party chambers" that have already been available...

This review is from: Here's Some That Got Away (Audio CD)
This postmortally issued compilation is in my eyes a let down, not in the first place because of its concept (the b-sides and rarities thing actually works well with The Jam Extras compilation that was issued earlier) but because of the absence of quality songs on it: Apart from the acceptable b-sides "Big boss groove" and "Party chambers" that have already been available on other formats and a few melodic fillers like "A casual affair" and "Who will buy" there is nothing worth mentioning on this record. The professionally but heartlessly produced mediocre soul numbers "My very good friend" or "Love pains" are ommitting the signature of Weller's songwriting abilities and don't leave a lasting impression. The compiler's (Dennis Munday again) dilemma obviously was that - in contrast to the "Extras" compilation - the lack of classy tunes and quality songs of the late Style Council era. It would have been a turn for the better if Munday had looked for demos of the more sophisticated and affectingly northern soul tunes that the band had in their earlier repertoire, namely "Up for grabs", "Meeting of the yonder" and "Move on up".
