Amazing album, if you like Reggae then you will love this one from Eddie Grant, yes it does have some political overtones, but if you can ignore that then this is a fabulous album, if you can't ignore the political stuff you shouldn't be buy this kind of music and perhaps your more suited to the Smurfs or something equally crap.

The first CD has all his best songs, that is a GREAT CD. The second CD . . . . hmmmm I think I like one, the rest are 'fillers'. But if you like Eddy Grant then you may have to buy 2 CDs to get the one great CD.

This great album compiles Eddy Grant’s greatest hits and also offers some excellent 12-inch dance remixes of his best songs. Not only does Grant have a talent for catchy tunes, but his lyrics are very intelligent, often having a message of some sort as in the song about democracy in South Africa called Gimme Hope Joanna.
The first disc contains the original versions of his massive chartbusters like I Don’t Wanna Dance, Electric Avenue, Living On The Frontline and Do You Feel My Love, and goes even further back to his very first hits like Baby Come Back. They are all superb reggae tracks with a fine pop sensibility and propulsive beats.
Disc Two contains breathtaking club mixes of songs like Frontline, Hello Africa, Walking On Sunshine and Do You Feel My Love, making this album absolutely essential for the Eddy Grant fan. The rhythmic textures here are very impressive and lend a fresh new perspective to the original songs.
Grant was a unique talent in the reggae world, rootsy enough for the reggae enthusiast but accessible enough for the lover of mainstream music – that’s why he had such a good chart run in the seventies and eighties. He was also a brilliant composer, lyricist and singer. I highly recommend this album to all reggae fans.

IF YOU WANT REGGEA THAT MOVES YOU EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY, THEN EDDY GRANT CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH BOTH. FROM GREAT TRACKS SUCH AS "ELECTRIC AVENUE" THAT WILL TAKE YOU BACK TO YOUR YOUTHFULL TEENS,20'S, 30'S ETC.... TO "I DONT WANNA DANCE" THAT WILL GET YOU IN THE MOOD FOR A PARTY AND DANCING. SOME OF THE SONGS DO HAVE A POLITICAL THEME BUT IF YOU JUST LIKE THE SOUND OF SOME REALLY ENJOYABLE REGGEA THIS WONT MATTER ANYWAY. EDDY GRANT IS ONE OF THE ALL TIME BEST REGGEA ARTISTS UP THERE WITH THE LEGENDARY BOB MARLEY. IF YOU WANT TO BUY ONE CD THIS YEAR MAKE IT THIS ONE, YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!!!!
