This remastered Dexy's Midnight Runners is a must own. The new version is a much more clearer and enhanced sound than the original. Still the same good, fun lyrics by Kevin Rowlands the headman of British Alternative group. They made the 80s so much fun. It was the time of the British invasion with all those long and forgotten, like- the Police, Madness, Chris DeBurgh making a sweep of memorable hits that kept the airwaves jumping. If only they could turn back the time when music meant something before the downslide. Oh, dream on, dream on.

If you can only remember Dexy's Midnight Runner for only 'Come on Eileen' then you're missing the real talent of this group. This is better than their original because it has added tracks with some of their best songs. So if you're deciding on which one this is it. I believe there had been a bit of confusion because of the name is the same on both. The original is the IMPORT version with only 10 tracks. Just look for ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED for the best listening enjoyment. The group is a little Brit soul with some rhythm and blues mixed in. The lyrics are fun and whimsical like that of Madness. Something of British Ska. It's reflected in 'The Celtic Soul Brothers.' Do I sense a bit of Commodore-mania there in 'Jackie Wilson Said.' The lyrics in 'Let's Make This Precious' and 'Until I Believe in My Soul' are romantically beautiful. I do believe the music industry has been missing something here. If you can still get this album while you still can. Getting good songs could be the thing of the past. Dexy's Midnight Runners is just one fo those groups that deserve billing like the Beatles or the Commodores. Their music you won't be disappointed.

While most people don't even remember the name Dexy's Midnight Runners past the song Come On Eileen, anyone brave enough to listen to the whole album will be shocked and amazed. In a a good way. The songs on the album flow into one another, and create an amazing soundscape straddling everything from rock to soul, to ska. In fact, this is probably the earliest example of what was to become ska I have heard, since I think this album pre-dates or at least laps most of Madness's releases. British Ska maybe? UK soul with flavors of old time rhythm and blues? All of the above. Be impressed, MR & DMR is where it's at.

There is something haunting about Dexy's Midnight Runners beyond "Come on Eileen" which is perhaps one of the greatest pop songs of all time (in my top ten for sure), but the youthfulness and confidence of a brash and innocent sound stirs something inside of me and perhaps you too? Kevin Rowland has one of the best voices I have ever heard a true talent. Ska, soul, pop it is all here and I am so glad I finally got this CD. I very much recomend it. It is a shame they did not do more, they were really good

Most everyone has just heard "Come On Eileen" but the rest of this effort is truly classic. Feel good music with punching horns and soulful rhythms abound here. "Let's Make This Precious", "Plan B", "Jackie Wilson Said", I'll Show You" all are lively, energetic neo-soul classics. Kevin Rowlands singing leaves is far from perfect but it seems to fit these tunes. "All In All" is a brilliant ballad as is "Old". The extra songs are a bonus.Give this a try as there is so much more than "Come On Eileen".

I have a few CDs that are as good as this one, but none better. It's as perfect a CD as could ever be hoped for.

I didn't particularly like "Come on Eileen" when it was big, but someone (who???) gave me this tape to listen to one night in college and that was it. I could be found on many a night with it on my headphones at RISD's architecture studio. I still have the same cassette and I still love it to death. Sorry to whoever lent it to me... man so I owe you one! If you haven't heard this, do yourself a favor and give a shot, you will not be sorry!

A classic that I love to listen to. I don't even mind continuing to listen when "Irene" as finished playing.
