This is an A&M records version from 1983. UPC not available. Appears to be the same as this one though.

THE BEST OF THEIR CAREER
ianphillips@uk.dreamcast.com | BOLTON, LANCASHIRE, ENGLAND | 11/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Out of all three albums in UB40s' Labour Of Love series this very first one is most defintley the very best with a complete run of classic sounding reggae tracks. RED RED WINE is perharps the most instantly memroable song on the album but running closley behind that is the excellent JOHNNY TOO BAD. That song has to be one of the very best in their career to date. A real gem! Ali Campells vocals are crystal clear and strong on every track and the highlights also include MANY RIVERS TO CROSS, SWEET SENSATION, PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CRY and SHE CAUGHT THE TRAIN. Possibly the greatest album of their career to date. Its certainly a delight to listen to. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Must Have.

"...This album is one of my favorites. So much so that I wore out my original vinyl. Before Punk had the stronghold in the 80's, a more subtle, accessible style emerged from Jamaica. It took hold in the UK. Bands such as The English Beat, The Clash, & The Police would take inspiration from this style and lead us years later to the alternative scene we take for granted today. The original release of this record is 8-10 years before RED RED WINE would find US radio rotation. UB40 compiles their strongest inspirations from Jamaica. This is the British homage to the Jamaican originals. This is a special record. Highly recommended."
