Biography

Originating at the turn of the 1980s as a leader of the lite-jazz movement, Everything but the Girl became an unlikely success story more than a decade later, emerging at the vanguard of the fusion between pop and electronica. Founded in 1982 by Hull University students Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, the duo took their name from a sign placed in the window of a local furniture shop, which claimed ...

Okay, class. Let's get started! Today we will be going through a quick overview of Everything But The Girl. From this point forward we will be referring to them as EBTG. Any questions? Okay... let's begin. EBTG was formed in 1982 by Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn. During the course of their career as EBTG, they have recruited other competent musicians, as side men, to assist them on their quest for musical perfection. They have traversed light latin jazz (Each and Every One), symphonic pop (Come On Home), folk (Under The Bridge), coffeehouse acoustic (The Only Living Boy in New York), lush adult pop (Driving) and everything in between (choose the rest of the songs on this disc). For those of you who may have accidentally heard them in 1995 with their club remix of "Missing", this is what came years before that breakthrough hit. "HOME MOVIES" is a comprehensive encapsulation of what EBTG has done right in the world of pop music. They are artists, not money generators and this is the reason, I believe, they have had such a long-lasting career. Proceed immediately to the checkout with this item and just remember, this is the Cliff's Notes version of EBTG. Please examine their other offerings as they contain many hidden treasures. Once you have studied these works, you may register for the classes: "Amplified Heart", "Walking Wounded" and "Temperamental". Have a great day... class dismissed!

I am a big fan of EBTG's pop jazz music and this album is a great compilation of their best songs and makes for wonderful listening. All those SOS fans out there should try this British duo.

I started listening to this CD expecting to like only the few that I have heard before. What a pleasant surprise to find that this is a "best of" album in more ways than one. There is great talent here, and all the songs are keepers.
