This budget-priced, three-part, 37-track U.K.-only box set claims to contain the Greatest Ever! 80s Pop Anthems, and while it doesn’t completely live up to its moniker, there are enough classics from the era, like "The Safety Dance" (Men Without Hats), "Something About You" (Level 42), "Pass the Dutchie" (Musical Youth), and "Come On Eileen" (Dexy's Midnight Runners), to warrant a bit of a boast.
Serving to embrace the floral heavens of British pop, this edition combines the first ten prized volumes of the acclaimed Piccadilly Sunshine series, originally released from 2009 to 2012. Celebrating the obscured artifacts of illustrious noise that emerged from the Great British psychedelic era and beyond, it is the essential guide to the quintessential sound of candy-colored pop from a bygone age. Includes over 200 tracks from 1964-1971, with an enhanced bonus disc containing rare tracks and images. Includes 84-page full-color booklet with rare photos, detailed biographies, and full discographies.
