5.0 out of 5 stars Fine Old Guard, 7 May 2008
This review is from: The Finest (Audio CD)
A FYC compilation was always going to be a lumpy affair. With a back catalogue of two very different sounding albums a chronological order couldn't work so the songs are worked in to create a collage of both albums with some new songs to justify the price label.

From the self titled debut are singles `Johnny Come Home', `Funny How Love is' and the surprisingly successful cover of the Elvis standard `Suspicious Minds'. Also culled from the debut are the majestic `Blue' and equally political `Couldn't Care More'.

Second, and more successful, album `The Raw and the Cooked' gives us the brilliant singles `She Drives me Crazy' and `Good Thing' as well as Buzzcock's cover `Ever fallen in Love' as well as the priceless `Don't Look Back' and `Tell me What' with the standard only slipping with `I'm Not the Man I Used to be'.

The remainder of the album are three new songs which are pretty good particularly single `The Flame' and `Since you've Been Gone' however in the company they are sat with they seem al little weak.
A fantastic album and wonderful obituary to a truly great band.
