"The Very Best"? How can this be?
on 27 June 2006
The Stranglers are a great group who have prouduced some fine songs but the manufactureres of this CD need their heads examining. Are they really trying to suggest that the shorter version of the classic "Walk On By" which misses out most of the mind blowing organ solo and which is included in this collection is actually better than the longer version with the solo in all its glory? They must be having a laugh? If you plan to buy this CD, look elsewhere for one with the full version of this outstanding song and ask yourself how a shorter, edited, abridged, censored, clipped, cropped or reduced version of anything can ever be better than the original???
