All Together Now!
on 1 November 2014
Although Liverpool based The Farm only achieved a handful of big hits in the early '90s, there is much to like about their music if you enjoy bands such as Happy Mondays and Menswear.
As well as their signature song 'All Together Now', which, in all honesty is the best thing they ever did, you'll probably be also familiar with 'Groovy Train', and possibly with their superior top 20 cover of 'Don't You Want Me'. The rest of CD consists of every track from their debut album 'Spartacus', and minor hits, including the band's collaboration with Pete Wylie: 'Sinful! (Scary Jiggin' with Doctor Love)'. One of my favourites is 'Mind', a track which always lifts my spirits.
The Farm were never really one of my favourite bands from a great era of music, but they did have a few good uplifting tunes. Personally, I'll stick with this 'Very Best Of' album only, as it includes all the obvious songs, and 'All Together Now' is a classic.
