Many years ago I had `Hup`on vinyl. I had always liked the wonder stuff but never got anything on disc. Now I have - and this is a great collection. Favourites like `Size of a cow` and Don't let me down` plus cheesy greats like Dizzy (which I always loved!). A really good CD for capturing the best of Miles Hunt and the gang.
They're one of these bands that when you listen to this type of compilation you're first amazed by the number of tracks you like that they were responsible for and secondly by how ecclectic their catalogue is. This has all my favourites on it - Unbearable, Don't Let Me Down and at least a dozen other worthy efforts. If you're looking for an intro to the Wonderstuff or just looking to update your old tapes/records, then you couldn't do any better.
This is the Wonderstuff's definitive release.....'Circle Square" being a favourite of mine, I remember then when I was in Secondary School, other pupil's with The Wonderstuff badges' in flourescent colour's on the collar of thier School blazer in my Year & Form, so the band were known to me, a great price for the last Madchester band, other than Cast that is......a bargain....highly recommende from a highly recommended seller.
This cd will take you on a whirlwind ride through the wonder stuff back catalogue. It contains all the best known hits, (Dizzy, Size of a cow, Welcome to the cheap seats), as well as some of their less well known, but in my opinion far superior tracks, most notiably being 'circlesquare'. It could have been improved by adding a few other of their amazing tracks, but you really get value for money with the 19 tracks that are on it. If you're a beginner to the stuffies then this is the album for you. If you know you like what they did, go the whole hog and buy all four remastered albums, they're deffinately worth the splurge!
