4.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but NOT a complete singles album., 5 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spirit In The Sky - The Singles (Audio CD)
I am a Doctor & The Medics fan, I was since day one & saw this cd & immediateley thought: "Wow, now I can get all those lost 12" & 7" back....BUT: This cd is ok, but it's somewhat lacking LOADS of essential songs.

The singles cd tracklisting for this release is as follows:

The Druids Are Here
Happy But Twisted
Round and Round
Auntie Evils Dormitory
Molecatcher
Miracle of The Age
I Don't Want To Be Alone With You Tonight
Spirit In The Sky
Laughing At The Pieces
Burn
Waterloo
Stare Crazy
Age of Gold
Perfect World
More
Pretty Little Henry
Drive He Said
Ride The Beetle
Hi Ho Silver Lining
Black and Blue
The Angel Play Their Harps For Me
Two Tribes

...A good attempt to collect all the singles BUT it misses off for fans since day 1 of their career like me several (LOADS in fact) of classic Doctor & The Medics songs, these songs are ALL NOT ON THE CD:

The Goats Are Trying To Kill Me (B-side of: "The Druids Are Here" single)
Live At Alice In Wonderland e.p (with the amazing: "Ride The Beetle")
Two Pieces Of Cloth Carefully Stitched together e.p (Tracks: Sound Of Chains, Perfect World, Silver King & Age Of Gold)
Secrets Of A Babys Mind (from: Miracle Of The Age e.p)
Silver Machine (from: Happy But Twisted e.p)
Burn e.p (Captain Frazier, Love Peace & Bananas, Paranoid live)

....I could go on, yes ok - some cover versions I can see why they were'nt included. But to miss off the b-side of the first single, Ride The Beetle (a live classic), AND Love Peace & Bananas (an absolutely essential track by the band)

Oh well, a missed opportunity. Should have been a double cd maybe?
Even so I am still giving it 4 stars out of 5, because it's still amazing.
Buy it, but be aware it's NOT a COMPLETE singles album.

Mine just arrived today. Yeah, it would have been great to have all those early EP & single tracks. As it took 7 or 8 years for this to materialize (since a singles collection was first announced), I won't be holding my breath. I am glad to have "Miracle Of The Age" & "Burn". I have the US version of "Laughing @ The Pieces" which included those tracks, (and left out the forgettable "Barbara Can't Dance" & "Fried Egg Bad Monday") and was disappointed that they went w/ the UK track-listing for the CD re-issue.

Great review - I couldn't agree more, there are some essential tracks missed off this release but better something than nothing I suppose. "Happy But Twisted", "Mole Catcher" and "Miracle Of The Age" just roll away the years.......I could be back watching them at the Riverside in Newcastle all over again.....I wish I was !!!
