Imagine. It's now 2010 and this is one of the best albums I have ever bought.

30 years on from it's original release, the fantastic first album from Madness is re-released for your pleasure in a fab two disc package bulging with extras. This is the album that started it all for me. A lifetime with Madness. The high's and the lows.
The first CD is a direct reproduction of the first album in it's entirety and includes singles The Prince, One Step Beyond, My Girl, and Night Boat To Cairo and classic album track and almost single The Bed & Breakfast Man - plus the other album tracks that hint at what was to come from the Magnificent Seven over their fantastic 30 year career. From the tongue in cheek saucy postcard tale of "In The Middle Of The Night" telling of a local newsagents raids on ladies washing lines, to the teenage angst tale of young love in "Believe Me", we stop off at militaristic tales of time spent in borstal "Land Of Hope & Glory, and even pay homage to Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" in a way that only Madness can. Then there is the lunacy of Tarzans Nuts and the eponymous "Madness" - another tribute to Prince Buster who had such an influence on the band. Madness, they call it Madness. Indeed.
If all that wasn't enough there are 5 video tracks included in the package (The Prince, One Step Beyond, My Girl Night Boat To Cairo and Bed & Breakfast Man) and a second CD crammed full of B-sides and rarities (One Step Beyond in Italian AND Spanish!!) that make this package excellent value for money for any die hard fan or someone trying to get beyond just knowing the greatest hits.
You be nuts not to buy it!!
