5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Nostalgia!
I always loved the single, "Bus Stop" but was unaware of most of the rest of the bands material. If you like 80's funk then you'll love this. It's brilliant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Band But Only OK CD .....
..... but better than OK for the price!

Too much from the Fatback's later stuff for my liking, which means too many vocals & not enough horns. Does include the song that some claim to be the first featuring rapping, "King Yim III"

Best tracks are Bus Stop & Spanish Hustle, both big hits in the UK pop charts from the mid 70s.

..... but better than OK for the price!

Best tracks are Bus Stop & Spanish Hustle, both big hits in the UK pop charts from the mid 70s.

Bus Stop is all out stomping music with a great base line thru'out and Spanish Hustle has some great trumpet & sax over another dance hit.

Early disco smash Wicky Wacky is also worth a listen as is the original I Found Lovin' and Yum Yum.

The later stuff is OK, but doesn't really "Raise Hell"

Worth buying at this price but there are better compilations out there.
