Remind yourself that life existed in Manchester in the 80s...and that there are subjects worthy of focus beyond the Home Counties !

If you like a bit of JCC this is a good compilation to choose, lots of tracks from the master poet.

Buyer beware, there are 2 mp3 versions of this album.

If you're looking at this version (link)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Very-Best-John-Cooper-Clarke/dp/B001GUE09K/ref=ntt_mus_dp_dpt_1

Amazon offer a link to the CD format (including Autorip), at a lower price.

Looks like a better deal until you discover, the CD (+Autorip) are actually the other heavily censored version of the album which, in my opinion is less desireable.
I was disappointed...

She had a head as big as a TV screen.
Glutinous complexion with a day-glow sheen.
Big bog-eyes and a death ray stare.
Feet like water wings, purple hair,
I was over the moon I asked her back to my place and then I married the monster from outer space.

Album full of the above good stuff!!

Alright if you like this sort of thing. Hardly the greatest of voices, but that misses the point, its the lyrics that appeal. Bit old school singing stand up for my taste. The Very Best of John Cooper Clarke is all you need, unless you are a diehard fan of this guy.

Wonderfull exactly what the creative mind craves. having being a Bob dylan fan from being about 16 i found john to be an equally talented and after going to see him in york i was convinced. a trully humble warm and witty star who deserves a lot more recognition.

Simple and complicated, stupid and profound this collection is just genius. How he never became poet laureate is beyond me. he is just so accessible to anyone with half a brain.

Not everyone's cup of tea but well worth a listen as JCC certainly presents a different view of things. Buy it and to show you still have the mojo!
