A very good compilation of greatest hits, although a couple of early hits were missing from the sound section of the set. No 'hangin' around' or 'straighten out', but I was pleased to see that 'walk on by ' was the full 6 minute version and not the cut down single version. All in all though very good value at the price.

this is truly a great set to have. with the amazing video The Old Testament for some reason not available on DVD, the 10 videos on the DVD here are must-have things for any Stranglers fan.
yes, the Nice N Sleazy video is the infamous one with the strippers on stage, so be mindful of the age of viewers.
there are more expansive "best of" sets of the band out there, but the CD pretty much covers the well known hits for the casual fan.

I bought this CD/DVD mainly for the DVD. While all the songs are widely available on other CDs, and I've already got all the tracks already, I haven't got any Stranglers videos. The sound quality and selection of songs on the CD is fine. The videos are great, I'd not seen most of them in their entirity. They are all from the early years of the Stranglers when Hugh Cornwell was the lead singer. Some are proper videos while others are simply videos of an outdoor concert. The video quality is not up to modern standards, more VHS than DVD, but that reflects the age of the material. It's all very watchable and the sound is good. At £6.99 this CD/DVD seemed good value, I'm completely content with it and I'd recommend it, particularly to those interested in seeing the videos.
