Product Description & Reviews

Ah, yes, the stuff that should have been hits, plus some live squiggly bits, all passed off as the very best of Robyn and his band. So, you get things that got air or MTV play, things which nobody quite noticed at the time, like "Flesh Number One (Beatle Dennis)" and even a killer cover of "Eight Miles High." It's all stirring stuff--Hitchcock at his child-like best on the lyrics--not as many insects or fish as the real connoisseur might want, but there you go. Those A&M years gave him quite a bit of visibility; it was just a shame that the material, fun and poppy as it was, just didn't manage the quality of what went before, and, it seems, what's come since. --Chris Nickson
