Rock on Les.,
This review is from: Mud - Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Like most people I was only familiar with hits such as Tiger Feet, Cat crept in, etc. But there are some great, lesser known tracks on this album that are worth a listen. I am genuinely impressed at Mud's versatility. Admittedly most of the tracks are rock n roll standards but they cover them with imagination and flare. Hippy Hippy Shake and Tallahassee Lassie are straight down the line rock n roll covers, whilst Blue Moon is an acapella version. There's also the fantastic Crazy, which I had completely forgotten about. The other tracks are covered in Mud's own distinctive style. Les Gray was a great singer and it's a great pity that he is no longer with us. Rock on Les.
As other reviewers have mentioned the two track missing are Lean On Me and Lonely This Christmas which is a shame as Lean On Me is one of my favourite Mud tracks. This is still a great album and there isn't a duff track here. Quite often you buy a greatest hits album with a handful of hits but the rest are really fillers. That isn't the case here. Recommended.
