Editorial Reviews

UK compilation from the British Psychedelic/Glam/Pop band led by Clive Jackson (AKA The Doctor). This is the first ever retrospective of the Medics' recording career and is surprising for the amount of material they produced in what was effectively a very short recording career. So pull on your velvet loons: light a joss stick; plug in your lava lamp and lets travel back to the heady 1980s via the Glam busting '70s and through the acid laden Haight Ashbury sound of the 1960s. Unfairly only remembered for their admittedly brilliant cover of 'Spirit In The Sky', Doctor And The Medics were one of the UKs best gigging Indie bands of the era. Eastworld. 2011.

3.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING! January 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
I am quite a fan of this group and have been since the 80's when they were popular! Therefore I was excited to see that a compilation of sorts was being issued! So my copy has been on order for ages, and now that I have it...it is a disappointment! The sound quality is poor, as with many hard to find albums that are being released on CD format these days. It sounds at times like you're in a cave listening to it and other times there is crackling as if you're playing your vinyl copy! They could've at least bothered to remaster the tracks, since they went through the trouble of putting out this release! The artwork is ok, but the best part of the whole thing is the re-used cover image of THE DOCTOR! Furthermore, it would've been nice to add a DVD of their few videos, considering they were such a visual phenomena! Some great music in poor quality...save your money and buy their other CD releases!
