Format: Audio CD
Better than standard "Greatest Hits" compilations of previous recordings, this captures The Beautiful South live in a small studio, which in my opinion is at their best.

The track listing reflects a mixture of well known hits and favourites from live shows, although later material is missing.

Only gripe is the omission of The Jools Holland Show appearances. Assuming the band get a fair share of the royalties, this is a great buy.

Fantastic selection of BBC sessions. There is some overlap between this and the Live At The BBC box.

LOVE this album - as they haven't done a "live" album, this may be the nearest we get and it goes some way to capturing the magic of their live performances. my only critisim is that "You Keep it all In" appears 4 times, would have rather had some other tracks. However, the version of "Woman in the Wall" makes up for this. Loving it - more "live" albums please while we await the comeback!!!!!!!!

Worth buying just for the track "Use it up, wear it out" which I had never heard the group perform before. Was hoping for more minimalist accoustic versions on the album but very pleased with the content thats there.

The BBC Sessions is an excellent double CD featuring tracks The Beautiful South did for the BBC in the late 80s and mainly the mid-90s with one session from 1998.

Its great to hear different versions of various songs, a great addition to my TBS collection. My only complaint is why there are 4 versions of You Keep It All In on this collection. Pity they didnt record different songs in my view. I rate it 9 and half out of 10.

I have been a Beautiful South listener from their early years. As other reviews have said this is the closest to a live album that you can get. Brilliant vocals throughout, although indeed there best known songs are repeated a few times over. Never seen the band live and unfortunately never will. If you enjoy BS you will love this album.
