CD Reviews

Fantastic, could've been even better
M. Zabaroff | London, UK | 07/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As great as it is to have the whole of the 1st album The Longest Day available at last on cd for this compilation it seems an opportunity lost not to have spread the selection more evenly over the first 3 albums. It's hard to call really because if they never release the 1st album on cd then this will be indispensable. Nonetheless this could only be a minimum 5 star review. The Del Fuegos were (please get together again guys)one of the most underrated bands ever and should have made it absolutely huge. They had everything you'd ever want from a rock and roll band but what set them miles apart from other bands of the time was their excellent songwriting (for a starter just listen to Backseat Nothing, I Still Want You and I Can't Take This Place). The 2nd album Boston, Mass. is my favourite of the 3 and it's criminal that they left off two of the best songs (Hold Us Down & especially the blistering Shame). The 3rd album is great,very underrated and although not as good as the first two it would have been nice to have had some more songs on the compilation such as Long Slide (for an out), Town Called Love and Name Names.
All this said, I can 100% recommend this album to anyone who loves rock and roll. They were an absolutely fantastic band and unbelievable live and let's hope one day all the albums are re-released on cd plus maybe a live cd and dvd (there must be stuff recorded - it doesn't hurt to dream). PLAY LOUD!"
Rock as it should be

"For anyone who spent even a little time "Left of the Dial" back in the 80's, you will know exactly what I mean when I say that it is a very disheartening state in music when bands like the Del Fuegos, Green on Red, Guadalcanal Diary and the Beat Farmers have so many albums currently out of print. Having suffered the unthinkable by selling back my vinyl in the late 80s with the intention of rebuying all of my favorite albums on CD, then putting it off and putting it off, I soon found myself without copies of many of these, simply put, incredible albums.The Best of the Del Fuegos, The Slash Years was more than a pleasant surprise. Getting nearly all of The Longest Day and Boston, Mass. on one CD was a dream come true. Now my CD collection is one step closer to being complete. Songs such as Coupe Deville, Don't Run Wild, Backseat Nothing, Have You Forgotten and Its Alright sound as fresh today as they did 15 years ago. This it the type of album that will make you feel sorry for today's teenagers because they have nothing that compares to this with current bands.Gone are the days of flipping through thousands of records at the locally owned record store, looking at guest musicians, producers and bands mentioned in the "thank yous" hoping to find that next great band to wear out on your turntable. The Del Fuegos were one such band and this CD is definitely one to wear out on your CD player.Don't let this one "Fade to Blue"."

"I've been waiting for "the longest day" to come out on cd forever. The only thing this album is missing is that original cover-LOUD and simple just like the band. Already have two or three Boston Ma. cd's and a couple of coffee stained tapes and two worn out albums. Only two songs omitted that were required-"Shame" and "Long slide for an out". Love the Fuegos, just wish the five years I lived in Boston were when they were in their prime. Now we need a live album from about the time I saw them-1985."
