"CAN YOU DIG IT?"
At last, a true "Best of..." covering the whole of The Poppies illustrious career. Just looking at the track listing bought the memories flooding back: Waiting outside the record shop to bag the 12" of Sweet Sweet Pie on the day of release, recovering from the shock when they first used a drum machine, sniggering at the words to Beaver Patrol, going to see them on the 'Superpowers' tour in '88 and collecting all those wonderfull shirts...
This "Best Of" seems to have been put together by someone who likes the Poppies and I'm glad to see it isn't heavilly focused on the end of their career which wasn't my favorite era. Highlights for me include Candydiosis, No Love and Dance of the Mad.
Although the die hard fan will have everything here (Surely there must have been something slightly rarer around) this is the first time the whole of their career is in one place. I know I'll end up buying it as I'm sure most fans will. Hopefully the younger fans will learn that there was more to the Poppies than Ski hats and remixes.
To those who may have chanced upon this CD without much knowledge of the Poppies, enjoy it for what it is - a chronical of one of the UK's most original and influential bands who are still sorely missed today.

It has perhaps a little too much of the early days in relation to latter day material. That said for new comers it is an ssentil purchase, for fans? maybe. The songs are mostly excellent and as a collection of Pwei songs go it is the strongest to date.
Never rub another mans rhubarb.
