5.0 out of 5 stars It does have to be this way, 4 Oct 2009
This review is from: Digging Your Scene: The Best of The Blow Monkeys (Audio CD)
The Blow Monkey's sophisticated but danceable records make them one of the classier of the underrated mid 80s New Wave bands. Dr Roberts' relaxed but emotive lisping voice immediately puts you at ease, while the brass and keyboard led arrangements sit well beside more those of their more acclaimed contemporaries such as The Style Council. With key tracks: 'Digging Your Scene', 'Wait', 'It Doesn't Have to be That Way', 'Choice', 'Celebrate (The day after You)', and the sumptuous 'Out With Her', bolstered by a raft of less familiar but equally accomplished songs, this double CD is easily justified and deserves to be on every coffee table in the land. Fantastic stuff.

This 2cd set is the most comprehensive collection out there by the Blow Monkeys. Forget all others,just get this one. It has every single release along with a generous selection of album cuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the best tracks from a great band - just one fave missing!, 7 Aug 2011
This review is from: Digging Your Scene: The Best of The Blow Monkeys (Audio CD)
Great music had me boogeying in my car soo much that I was stopped by the Bill on a wet dark evening on the way home from a long journey! Great rhythms, horns, jangly guitars- lots of influences weaving thru out - funk, latin beats, bit of eastern here and there. Dr Roberts voice is a dream. Just a shame 'Dont Be Scared Of Me' wasnt on - ( on reflection -good job really as i'd have probably been banned dancing to that one whilst trying to steer.) If you only liked one or two tracks of their stuff - you will Luurve all of this.

During my recent 80s throwback phase I ordered this as I only had a Blow Monkeys lp and no record player to listen to it. I was surprised by how many great songs the Blow Monkeys had produced, meaning that both of the 2 cds have some really good tunes on them and are an enjoyable listen.

Bought this as a present for my husband, he's really enjoyed the experience of listening to this band, bringing back memories of his childhood. Cannot fault the delivery of the product or the easy ordering of the product.
