C'mon, Eddy, smile! You've done great!

"This is a fine overall collection of Eddy's best songs. My favorites are still his biggest U.S. hits, "Electric Avenue" and "Romancing the Stone." The remake of "Baby Come Back" (on which he sang lead with The Equals ca. 1967) is not bad aside from the fact that he's slightly off-key on the chorus. Unless you're from the U.K., I suggest skipping the first track, that terrible remix of "Electric Avenue"; had it been my decision, I would have ignored it and included the 1983 12-inch mix of EA and would have put all songs in chronological order instead of randomly as so many record companies seem to get their jollies by doing nowadays. But if you don't care about such trivialities, by all means grab this interesting and fun- to- listen- to CD. (But please pay for it first! :-)"
Huge hit on this side of the Atlantic

"Eddy Grant only had the one hit in the United States (Electric Avenue) but his blend of pop and reggae was a huge hit here in the 1980s and he had scores of hits. They're all on this album, which I purchased in the UK the day it came out. The album leads off with a fantastic remix of "Electric Avenue" that was a huge hit in England in the summer of 2001 and it just keeps on going with some of reggae/pop's best classics. Another little-known fact about Grant is that he plays all of his own instruments, so he's a man of many talents. If you're a reggae fan or an 80's music fan, you should consider this record. It's fantastic."

"If you ever hung out at the Paradise/Garage on 84 King St. back in the '80s then you know that Noboby's Got Time is the lyric version of his classic 'Time Warp', arguably the greatest club song of all time."
