hue and cry were responsible for some of the most sophisticated urban soul to come out of britain in the late to mid 80's(apparently MILES DAVIS was a fan!) peaking perhaps with 1990 STARS CRASH DOWN-This wee compilation is well put together containing some lost gems ie "calamity john"-its lamentable that for me pat kanes lyrical zenith is not represented here with the songs SHE MAKES A SOUND or LIFE AS TEXT but gripes aside a fantastic compilation and for once it seems put together with some genuine affection for the band-Hue and cry were always a band that were just too good to be ignored so perhaps this will go someway to redress the balance-enjoy!

It's strange how the memory plays tricks. I always enjoyed listening to their albums about 20 years ago, but age must have withered me, as I find several of the tracks now dated and, dare I say, boring. Shame.

For fans who already have other "best ofs" but missed the original issue of some of these tracks - B-sides and 12inch remixes - this is a good chance to get them on CD.

For those who vaguely remember Looking For Linda or Labour Of Love and are curious to see what else they could do, then this a good compilation of hits and album tracks which shows the brothers off to best effect.

If you fancy dipping your toe into the world of 'Hue & Cry' then you should buy this album. If you want to know what a great and creative vocalist and an equally talented backing band can really sound like then don't miss this opportunity. Like a breath of fresh air. Classic stuff.

Having been a huge fan of this bad years ago, buy this collection of their hits has been great. One of Scotlands finest bands it bring back many happy memories as well as giving me a good olde sing along.

It's a good quality original cd that plays really well and it seems to have the hits that we remember. I was never a big fan but there always good to play.

A reminder of a very special voice. Great bond between these two talented individuals. A very easy listen. A couple of "none event" tracks.
