CD Reviews

A Tribute to a Great Band!

"Love and Money sounded like one of the most promising Bands in the Early 90s. Really unfortunate that it split and still worse we can't get CDs of their older albums like "Dogs in the Traffic" and "All you need is..." . This Collection is the only alternative for somebody who wants to really check out this Group.After you Listen to it you will wonder like Everyone else: "Why did this band Die?""
Only half of their best songs!

"This collection of Love and Money songs is a must for anyone enjoying pop in the late 80's early 90's.....From upbeat lyrical singalong songs to classic ballads it is probably one of the biggest losses to the music industry that this band never made it....fully!...James Grant ...lead vocalist and songwriter has been heralded the best songwriter ever to come out of Scotland...and with his unmistakeable stunning voice its easy to fall in love with this music!......"
So good!

"Fantastic band! singer James Grant, vocals are excellent. However each of the bands album's after 'strange kind of love' ,seemed to get slower, more moody and dark, more country in style and more obscure. One of James Grant's solo album's, 'sawdust in my veins 'put out after they split, was a disapointment, although it contained a few highlight tracks . He has some other solo projects which you can get through some scottish music sites and itunes. I havn't heard these .For me, the Steely Dan sound & style of Gary Katz's production on 'strange kind of love', is great it just rocks out more with these really cool jams & jazzy back beats...just an ace album and definite desert island disc. On this album/greatest hits, the track, 'who in their right mind' only on this album, is the standout & perhaps worth getting this compilation for the track, although you can download this track alone on itunes ."
