A Great Band at their best

"This album collects the best of Sad Cafe's early UK releases and presents them in a bite-sized chunk for today's audience. The set only covers their RCA releases (A&M in the U.S.) but includes all their big UK hits - Everyday Hurts, My Oh My, La-di-da, Nothing Left Toulouse, Strange Little Girl etc. Unfortunately, the selection misses out their biggest U.S. hit "Run Home Girl" which wasn't a single in the UK but this is available on the two for one release on Renaissance which has the whole of their Facades album and the U.S. version of Misplaced Ideals. With the recent death of their lead vocalist, Paul Young, this is a timely anthology which might inspire RCA to release their "Ole" album which is also one of their finest hours."

"It's "greatest hits" packages like this that leave many fans wondering in awe about how songs get chosen for these type of things. Sad Cafe's best moment was "Run Home Girl", a Hall & Oates-styled pop song with cool vocals, nice sax bits and a wailing synth/guitar solo that brought British rock and American soul together in fine fashion. MISPLACED IDEALS and FACADE were the band's two biggest albums (both for A&M) and both are on a 2-disc reissue via Renaissance which is a superb buy and complete value-for-dollar CD. This set, however, is downright SAD. It doesn't contain "Run Home Girl" or any of the really great songs from FACADE. It limps along with a majority of cuts from far inferior albums the band released for RCA when the vim and vinegar were long-gone. Contrary to the nice cover and the full title of this so-called "anthology", this isn't the set you really want of you're a fan of this fine seventies Britpop band."
