Ah, The Housemartins. Forerunner of the mighty Beautiful South, and soundtrack of my childhood growing up in the Humber region in the mid eighties. Their brand of jaunty tunes with interesting lyrics that made you think is one of the biggest influences on my musical taste.
With a brief recording life that encompassed only two albums, they made many many great tunes that still hold up well today. For those who don't already have the albums separately, this is an excellent way of getting most of their best work in one place. At 24 tracks in length, it finds space for quite a comprehensive run through the catalogue.
An excellent album, in terms of value for money, choice of material and the quality of the music.
