Excellent compilation CD by much underated 60's group. Consists of their 2 LPs (one originally on the Decca label and one on Fontana) and half a dozen of their best singles that were not originally included on the LPs.
Previously only available as an import from Germany.

Now deleted but an excellent CD which contains most of their 1964 to 1966 work. All the Decca UK A and B sides plus the 4 tracks on their hit EP and 3 other tracks taken from their 1965 1st Album LP.
Unit 4+2 were a very underated group, perhaps not wild enough to be as successful as their music deserved them to be.
An excellent buy, though.

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 13 April 2003
Format: Audio CD
This British group originally comprised Peter Moules (lead vocal), David Meikle (guitar), Howard Lubin (guitar) and Thomas Moeller (keyboards) and was called Unit 4. Before achieving any success, Rod Garwood (bass) and Hugh Halliday (drums) joined. Rather than change the name to Unit 6 (the obvious new name), they became Unit 4 + 2.
Their music was a blend of folk, pop and rock’n’roll. Their first hit was The green fields, which just scraped into the British chart. The next single, Sorrow and pain, failed to chart at all. The real breakthrough came via their third single, the British chart-topper, Concrete and clay, which was also an American top thirty hit. The follow-up, You’ve never been in love like this before, was a British top twenty hit but only just got into the American chart. Ten more singles were released but none of them charted, during which time there were several personnel changes.
This compilation includes all the hits and several of the A-sides that failed to chart – there were too many failures to include them all here. It also includes covers of Cotton fields, 500 miles, La bamba, You’ve lost that loving feeling and Swing down chariot – four different songs with very different origins.
Unit 4 + 2 made some entertaining music, but history will record them as a one-hit wonder. This collection is for those (like me) who are deeply into sixties music and who want to explore its obscure backwaters.

I was looking for a CD by Un it 4 + 2 for a long time. I remember listening to them in the 60S (yes, I was there!) and there are lots of good tracks on this compilation. It proves thhat there were other good groups around at this time, apart from the well known ones. So, give it a go!

I just like unit Four Plus Two. I've not played Concrete and the Clay as yet but it's there for when I'm in the Mood, because you hear it on the radio frequently. It's great to breakaway from listening to big hits at times and enjoyable.

Unit4+2 were a wonderful surprise to find. I had heard Concrete and Clay there only number one, but there are many gems on this CD which is two of their albums. They are a great harmony group with lots of great recordings and arrangements. Sorrow and Pain is also another great single. I wish that there had been more. Their covers of Cotten Fields, 500 Miles, La Bamba and the beautiful Butterfly are of a very high vocal standard. They produced a great sound which reflects the period of the mid and late sixties. After listening to this CD i want to get more of their music.

bought this solely for the song - concrete and clay - which is one of my all time favourites - other tracks ok, but learnt things about the group I didn't know - dated recording techniques of course but nostalgic
