Editorial Reviews

Import only compilation from one of the top British Urban/dance acts of the early '80s. This trio (Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol) began life as Loose End, but changed their name to Loose Ends right before fame came knocking on their door when they hit paydirt with the 'Hangin' On A String' single in 1985. Their hit streak continued up through the end of the decade with tracks like 'Golden Years', 'Slow Down', 'Watching You' and others. The group did continue in the early '90s, but only after Eugene and Nichol had been replaced and the magic had all but disappeared. 15 tracks. EMI.

Customer Reviews

One of my favorite cassettes that I found on CD.

A long overdue retrospective of this influential band is most welcome, and this collection manages to hit many career highlights, but this disc is copy-protected, so any attempts at copying discs and ripping MP3 files will be largely unsuccessful. Forewarned!!!

This is a good collection of hits and fan favorites. Its not 100% comprehensive, but there are a lot of worthwhile tracks here. In all fairness, a comprehensive collection would need to be more like a double or 3-CD.

BTW, to the reviewer from Jersey: I hope you're aware that Loose Ends is not from NJ, they are from the UK. And this is an import CD to begin with. In other words, Loose Ends' history began before you ever heard of them in the US. A track like "Magic Touch" may not be familiar to you, but it SHOULD if you are a true fan. Certainly to the fans in the UK, where Loose Ends is from, that track is an old favorite and I doubt that they could sell a "best of" in the UK without that track!

Back in the day I use to love Loose Ends. This album has everything that a fan could want in a best of album. Its enhanced sound quality alone makes this album a must have for any fan of loose ends.

Loose Ends are the most underrated band on the planet- point blank. Those of you who think that Soul II Soul were innovators of UK Soul, think again- they popularised it. Loose Ends opened the door for them and unfortunately are seldom given the respect for it. Carl McIntosh paved the way for the likes of Jazzie B in terms of production, producing a sound that would become distinctive. The other members, Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol would be the final jigsaw of the piece. This greatest hits gives an honest and ideal overview of their career. From the classic 'Hangin' On A String (Contemplating)' to the brilliant 'Stay A Little While, Child' to the simple but enjoyable 'Slow Down'. From the Prince-like 'Tell Me What You Want' to the trip-hoppping 'Don't Be A Fool.' From their excellent and innovative take of the David Bowie classic 'Golden Years' to the James Brown 'Funky Drummer' breakbeat sampling 'Love's Got Me' this collection is an essential purchase for, either, anyone who is getting into this talented band or those who miss the wonderful music they gave us for 7 years.

One reviewer indicated you could not rip music from this CD, but I purchased it anyway because it has great songs. Turns out I was able to rip to MP3 using Windows Media Player just like I would with any other CD. FYI.

Listening to this album brings back a lot of good memories . . . I was searching for their "Best of . . ." album for years and I finally found it!!
That said, I had already purchased a copy for myself but got another one for a friend of mine who I know will appreciate it greatly!!

This is a group that should stay the course of time. Refreshingly energetic, The Best of Loose Ends captures their signature songs such as "Stay A Little While, Hanging On A String, and Slow Down." This is a must for every collector or lover of Loose Ends music.

Loose Ends was a group that is easily likened to Incognito, The Brand New Heavies and Soul II Soul. If you like any of those UK Funk bands, you will definitely enjoy the best of what Loose Ends had to offer.
