5.0 out of 5 stars First best of to include UNRELEASED tracks!!, 12 Aug. 2011
This review is from: All Together Now The Very Best Of The Farm (Audio CD)
Named for the estate they grew up on it took about 5 years before the Farm had a hit single.In 1986 the band was on a label called Fire and cut an album!
The first hit borrowed the name of a Beatles song and was actually a Christmas song as it was about the events of December 1914 when British soldiers crossed the line to meet the Germans and have a drink with them-a pretty remarkable thing in itself to have happenned at the start of World War 1
Other hits followed like their cover of I'm not your stepping stone-with Groovy Train the first American hit.
What I like about this CD is the number of songs which are soundalikes of those 3 hits as it ties in with my love of cover versions,answer songs.
This as Britpop or Madchester or Baggy is the real deal.Like bubblegum its instant music but what I don't like about it-apart from the last tracks on both CDs which I disabled straight away-is the lack of info regarding who played on what.Like the string section and the girl voices on the cover of the Human League's Don't You Want Me.
The definitive Farm is still yet to be issued
