I have always loved B.J. The songs on the album are the shorts, but it's better having these than having none of them! All my big faves are on here, plus a few I haven't heard. Really looking forward to playing this little lot! It's one of those albums I've been promising myself for some time. Today, I just couldn't wait any longer and had to have it.
This is an astonishingly varied collection of music, but for me, there is just one excellent track: #2, 'Good Luck', which the band performed for the BBC at a New Year's Eve TV programme some time back. It's a shame the recording is so murky, but it is a wonderful arrangement, and even the session violinists sounded like they were having a ball.
you miss something by buying a best of. not the best songs mind you but the context and the urgency behind them. but what the hey - bj is about energy, clever lyrics and dancing. this collection will get you off your sofa. be warned!
