Superb compilation from the excellent band The Real Thing. I had the priviledge to see them live on several occasions, and am still quite a groupie at the age of 43!! A band that was before it's time, and whose music will live on in the hearts of all who've seen them, and all who buy this album for eternity. You to me are everything boys!!

The Real Thing formed in 1970 and from Liverpool were going by record sales the most successful black soul act of the 70's in the UK. They didn't find success until touring with David Essex (hold him close don't let him go!) and joining Pye records. They released 24 singles in total.

This is a great best of cd with twelve singles and three remixes on it. You to me are everything which got to number 1 in 1976 and I can't get by without you charting at number 2 are of course on there as is their 1979 hit, Can you feel the force.

Loads of other great tracks on here which will take you back, highly recommended.

The Real Thing played live at my daughter's recent wedding. Although she arrived to Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary, "Can't Get By Without You" now seems to be her wedding song ! Guests still can't stop talking about them. They were stupendous. Guests of all ages were up on the dance floor, dancing the night away. What an experience ! I remember them from years back in Liverpool when they were The Chants. They are favourites with listeners to Smooth FM - not surprising as they are pure talent. Anyone who likes Four Tops, Billy Ocean, Lionel Ritchie and the like will enjoy this CD.

The Real Thing played at our wedding in 2008(my wedding surprise to my wife!) as "You to me are Everything" is our song! They were terrific! Have seen them so many times live since and they have been brilliant - this album is just the best compilation if you like the band.. it just keeps you moving!

Really great album of The Real Thing. Covering: You Are Everything, Can't Get By With Out You, Can You Feel The Force and Boogie Down. A very seventies disco mania of their big hits to dance and great to listen to.

Another great complication of hit's. The real thing had some classic hits from the 70s with can you feel the force and you to me are every thing. Get the album now or You'll never no what you're missing........

A great collection of tracks, with some very pleasant lesser known tracks that illustrate the more 'soulful' side of The Real Thing. Recommended.
