Biography

Dexy's Midnight Runners are best known in America as one of new wave's ultimate one-hit wonders, thanks to their 1982 number-one smash "Come on Eileen," a distinctive fusion of '80s pop, Celtic folk, and blue-eyed soul. In the U.K., however, they earned a fair amount of critical acclaim, and made a greater impression on the public consciousness with their frequent changes ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The most underated CD ever! October 16, 1999
By Cody
Too-Rye-Ay is one of the most underated CD's of all time. It includes Dexy's greatest hit Come On Eileen. There are many other great songs on this CD as well such as Liars A to E, Jackie Wilson Said, The Celtic Soul Brothers, and Old. All of the songs are well executed and worth the purchase.

In my opinion this is the best album/cd ever made.I have the origional cd and the updated version with the extra tracks.Kevin Rowland was at his best on this classic recording.The songs flow together very smooth as if you were listening to Van Morrison Moondance or Astral Weeks.The Uptempo more resembles Tupelo Honey and Street Choir.If you buy one disc this year you should buy this disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good... January 18, 1999
By GeoX
Believe me, there's a lot more to this album than Come On Eileen. Although there are a number of less-than-impressive songs, the majority of the album is absolutely scorching, with great tracks like Plan B and Until I Believe In My Soul. The bonus cuts are for the most part non-essential (although some of the live stuff is pretty good), but as a whole the album is well worth owning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funky celtic-soul from Ireland October 29, 1998
By A Customer
"Too-Rye-Ay" was bandleader/songwriter Kevin Rowlands finest moment in a brief, underappreciated career. His blending of celtic melodies, soul rhythms and pop music manifests itself best in the 1982 hit "Come On Eileen". Though no other track on this disc matches the energy or catchiness of this 80's classic, heartfelt love songs like "Let's Make it Precious" make this more than a one-song album. Covers of Van Morrison's "Jackie Wilson Said" and Aretha Franklin's "Respect" also add soul and a sense of joy to the sessions. A look back at a familiar hit will uncover new and unfamiliar sounds for the first time listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sterling songwriting and fantastic energy. April 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
In the last three weeks since I bought the disc, I've been kicking myself for not running out and getting the LP back in the early '80s when the album was released. It could have been a crucial component of my musical education. This music bursts with a frantic energy, refined with wit, that I have only heard from one other artist: Jules and the Polar Bears. Each song is a small masterpiece, with the second-to-last track, "Until I Believe In My Soul" being positively transendescent. The hit single "Come On Eileen" sounds even better in context than on the radio!
As for the eight bonus tracks, I'm not sure what to say -- my cup has runneth over already, anyway. The live tracks are fascinating, because they show the band's ability to go beyond note-perfect renditions -- "Come On Eileen" is quite suitably extended. There is also a seven-minute plus version of the Aretha Franklin hit "Respect" which I can easily live without ever hearing again. It doesn't matter -- the original album was worth the import price, frankly!
I intend to acquire every available release of Kevin Rowland's and Dexy's Midnight Runners, based on the quality of this fantastic disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly one of the best CDs ever February 20, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I join the crowd in rating this as one of the best CDs ever. There are those who regard "Come On, Eileen" as the greatest track ever recorded by anyone, and both the studio and live versions are here in all their glory. I bought this strictly for "Come On, Eileen" and was surprised at the variety and consistent quality of the songs. Of Kevin Rowland's various incarnations, this was surely him at his best. The music is unique and has a haunting quality that will have you coming back to this again and again. I'm a big fan of the Beatles, Stones, Clash, etc., but I'm prepared to concede that "Come On, Eileen" may actually be the greatest track ever recorded by anyone.

This album still feels fresh even today. Definitely better than a strong majority of the music that is out today. I love blasting Celtic Soul Brothers and cranking up the bass.
