2008 three CD retrospective from the Liverpudlian legends containing all the hits and key tracks recorded during their years with Warner. A few rarities are also thrown in. Formed in Liverpool in the late '70s and fronted by the often arrogant and controversial Ian McCulloch, Echo & the Bunnymen managed to score a significant amount of hits in the UK, Europe and the U.S. This collection features tracks from their Korova/Warner Bros. Years before their initial breakup. 45 tracks including 'Rescue', 'Do It Clean', 'Villiers Terrace', 'The Killing Moon', 'Bring on the Dancing Horses', ' Lips Like Sugar' and many others. Warner. 2008.

But since all my Bunnymen stuff was on vinyl I decided to get this not only to replace much loved tracks in a digital form but also to explore the newer stuff.
Familiarity is the key here and the early stuff still sounds fantastic to me, the later stuff rarely holds my attention for long although there are some very good tracks throughout.
This compilation rights the wrongs of earlier, lighter efforts by including many of the 'missing' tracks.
No point in a track by track dissection, others are far better at that sort of thing, suffice it to say that if like me you want to replace, rediscover and re-acquaint then you can't do better than this collection.

which is great for everyone who only thought Lips Like Sugar is all they did. While
most serious fans will have the Crystal Days box set, every remaster, the RAH gig, etc, this is a great starting point for people who want to know more about this great band or just like "80s Brit pop/New Wave/Post-punk" (I hate having to try using labels to stick music into) get it.
Also look into EBTG's set in this series as it's also great value for money.
IF YOU WANT THE BEST OF ECHO, BUY THE ALBUMS, LIKE "OCEAN RAIN". AND IF YOU WANT AN ORIGINAL COMPILATION, BUY "SONGS TO LEARN AND SING" THIS IS ECHO INTRODUCING THEIR MUSIC TO THE U.S.
