For the uninitiated, this is a good place to start, as Shed Seven were one of the best singles bands of the britpop era. However, despite the album's title, this collection of songs features a number of versions which were not issued as singles:

- "Mark" is the longer, re-recorded Album Version from Change Giver.

- "Dolphin" is the 1999 re-recorded version, released on the Going For Gold compilation titled "Dolphin '99".

- "Speakeasy" is the Chris Sheldon Mix from Going For Gold.

- "Ocean Pie" is the 1999 re-recorded version from Going For Gold.

- "Chasing Rainbows" is the Stephen Street Mix from Let It Ride.

- "Devil In Your Shoes" is the longer Album Version, also from Let It Ride.

- "Step Inside Your Love" is the longer Album Version from Truth Be Told.

If you're a fan, you'll probably already own this for disc 2 alone, as the rarities on offer are well worth adding to your collection. Included are several demos, the real rarity being "Girls World", an old fan favourite recorded in 1993. There's also "Hijack" (the rejected lead single for the Going For Gold compilation), the "Disco Down" demo, and two demos of tracks that may have featured on the Let It Ride follow-up album, but were subsequently scrapped when Banks left the line-up - taking the songs with him for use with The Rising - and the band left Polydor Records, in 1999.

You also get the brass-less, rejected version of "Going For Gold" from 1995, along with two b-sides-that-never-were from the unreleased "High Hopes" single in 1999.

Worth buying for old and new fans alike.

By Brit Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 Feb. 2017
Format: Audio CD
In 2008, eight years after their last studio album (which remains their most recent to this day!), York's indie-rockers Shed Seven issued this definitive two CD compilation. 'The Singles Collection' contains the crème of this great band's most memorable recordings between from the decade spanning 1993 to 2003. Casual fans were served well with the earlier greatest hits selection Going For Gold, but this one has much to offer the other kind of fan.

Although Oasis and Blur (both bands of which I love) generally dominated the Britpop music scene, Shed Seven were always very popular back in the day, and actually scored more top 30 UK singles in 1996 than anybody else.

In chronological order, the first CD contains all of the band's singles, which naturally includes their most famous hit Going For Gold', and other catchy, radio friendly tunes like 'Getting Better', 'On Standby', and the beautiful 'Chasing Rainbows'. It should be noted that both the 'Speakeasy' and 'Ocean Pie' on here are the re-recorded 1999 versions.

The second CD carries a selection of B sides, which the band hand picked themselves (my personal favourite as always been 'Sleep Easy', which makes a welcome reappearance here), and eight previously unreleased recordings, including the previously rejected 1995 version of 'Going For Gold', and other early demos of other songs, a few of which would become big hits like the funky 'Disco Down'.

'The Singles Collection' is a neat way to own all of Shed Seven's singles all in the one place, but the inclusion of some of the B sides and other rarities, also makes it a collector's piece. Here we have a comprehensive reminder of one of the best, if somewhat now under-rated indie rock bands of the nineties.

A fine compilation from one of my favourite bands. I have been a keen shed seven fan for a long time, one of my favourite tracks are ''going for gold'' and ''she left me on friday''. ''speakeasy is great'' and the rare tracks are ace. I love the rocking guitars, and the music as well, in my point of view, this is the essential shed seven collection.

This is a 2CD set of all of Shed Seven's singles all in one place. It goes from the 1994 debut double a-side 'Mark' and 'Casino Girl', the first hits 'Dolphin' and 'Speakeasy', through to the big hits 'Going For Gold', 'She Left Me On Friday' and 'Disco Down' to the last single in 2003 'Why Can't I Be You'. And that's just disc 1!

Disc 2 collects together some of the best b-sides like 'Around Your House', 'Killing Time' and 'Melpomene' and then 8 tracks pulled from the band's own archive and all previously unreleased.
