Album Review

Spectrum's 2012 Dreadlock Holiday: The Collection is a scattershot collection of hits — the expected "I'm Not in Love" and "The Things We Do for Love," plus "Life Is a Minestrone" and "Wall Street Shuffle" and the title track" — album tracks and oddities, all adding up to a fitfully entertaining and often quite frustrating sampler. It has too many quirky choices to be representative or function as a good introduction, but if it's seen as merely an affordable grab bag, it does serve up some good tunes.

An introduction to the genius of 10cc

A curiously compiled yet compelling list of songs that show the more "pop" side of this oft-overlooked band. There's the small smattering of big hits - "I'm not in love", "The things we do for love", "Life is a minestrone", "Dreadlock holiday" and a live version of "The Wall Street shuffle" (presumably because Universal don't own the rights to the first two albums). Then there are the 'Singles that should have been hits' in the shape of "People in love" (A U.S. hit though nonetheless) and "Run away" (a non album no.50 hit single in the U.K. from 1982 and previously unavailable here). The compilers have delved into their hit albums between 1975 and 1978, totally missing out the three subsequent albums and then adding "Charity begins at home" from the 'comeback album that never was' "Meanwhile" from 1992. They also miss out any material from the bands last album "Mirror mirror" from 1995...but this is less of a bad thing.

This is very much the Gouldman/Stewart 10cc in evidence mostly here and definately a good starting point for anyone wanting to look beyond the usual greatest hits albums. The band are currently celebrating their 40th anniversary, and now would be a good time for Universal to give their fans more than the already available material - that a box set was planned and cancelled in 2002 is scandalous - when there is surely good reason for one.

Not a bad collection of 10cc, I picked mines up in Tesco for £5.99
Last week. Also a box set with nearly eighty tracks will be released
In July. About time, 10cc, one of the great 70s bands.

Deriving their name from the metric total of semen ejaculated by the average male, the tongue-in-cheek British art pop band 10cc comprised an all-star roster of Manchester-based musicians: vocalist/guitarist Graham Gouldman was a former member of the Mockingbirds and the author of hits for the Yardbirds, the Hollies, Herman's Hermits and Jeff Beck; singer/guitarist Eric Stewart was an alum of Wayne Fontana & the Mindbenders; and vocalists/multi-instrumentalists Kevin Godley and Lol Creme were both...
