Great party music,
This review is from: Lets Have a Party-Best of Mud (Audio CD)
Mud were very successful for a time in the mid-seventies, having about a dozen hits, of which most of them made the UK top ten and three went all the way to the top.
Their biggest hit was Tiger feet but the song they are now perhaps best known for, Lonely this Christmas, closes the CD (it is included despite being omitted from the track listing). Both of those songs reached number one in the UK, as did their cover of Oh boy!, the Buddy Holly classic. Other great hits to be found here include The cat crept in, Dynamite. Rocket, Moonshine Sally and The secrets that you keep.
Of the other tracks, there are plenty of covers that show their musical roots, including Living Doll (Cliff Richard), One night (Elvis Presley), In the mood (Glenn Miller), Hippy hippy shake (Swinging blue jeans), Diana (Paul Anka) and End of the world (Skeeter Davis).
This is a great collection of Mud's best music although lacking Lean on me, which was recorded for a different record label.
