"Paul Weller, father of mod, came up with a funk-jazz group known as The Style Council in the 80s. The result: a beautiful music creation. This album gives you some of the best songs from Cafe Bleu and Our Favorite Shop album in live performance. Live performance versions of Lodgers (dig the Motown horn section at the end of the song), With Everything to Lose, and Ever-Changing Moods are simply spectacular. Looking for a good collection of Style Council music? Grab this album now!"

"I bought this album while in Japan and it was the smartest musical purchase of my life. The Style Council is a fantastic band and this live performance doesn't miss the mark. During their hey-day of the 80's this talented British band was over-looked in the States--lost somewhere between New Wave & Wham. Paul Weller and his band made fine music though. "The Lodgers" and "Internationalists" are my favorite cuts on this exceptional recording. Funk, R&B and Pop collided and the result was Style Council. Check them out!"
An exceptional band's finest album

"If you have any interest in The Style Council buy this CD. The band is almost impossible to categorize. Read the online reviews and notice how everyone's definition of their music is different. "White Soul" is one description that sticks with me and is supported by this CD. Unlike many bands, they sound even better live, probably because they are great musicians. They are loose but groove really well on this recording. It's a great mix of some of their finest songs at the peak of their history. This is the album that introduced me to The Style Council and it remains my favorite. The horns are strong, the strings are real and the band is tight. Camille Hinds is a fantastic bass player and Steve White is the most underrated drummer I know of. Listen to his little fills that show his jazz foundation. I also own the video tape version of this concert and it's the most enjoyable concert video I've seen. This is what pop music can achieve but rarely does - polish, soul, melody, instrumentation and class."
