Before they got boring,
This review is from: Signing Off (Audio CD)
The first album, complete with the contents of the free ep record that was slipped in with the original LP.
A reminder of what a great band this was before it became the Reggae equivalent of Status Quo.
Fabulous songs beautifully presented. All that lush saxaphone riffing and passion.
A mighty rhythm machine. The only UB40 album you need.

Completely agree. If they'd found room for Earth Dies Screaming/Dream a Lie it would have been perfect.

Where did it all go wrong after this? This and the Specials with Ghost Town, sums up the desolation of the youth, in the Midlands, at the end of the 1970's.

"the Reggae equivalent of Status Quo", what a perfect description of their latter descent into blandness.
Far better the early days, back when they were still angry.

'Present Arms' is also a superb album.
