A four cd set or 2 vinyl LP set. Not a bad set of songs . Some rarities along with some standards. Somehow the Madness track seems out of place on the set. Doesnt seem to fit with the rest of the comp ...

Has to be Rat Race for me. First single l ever bought, and still love it now. Selecters The Whisper if it qualified, but it doesnt would be up there. Still love Madness The Prince, great debut single.

I liked Signing Off, Present arms and The first Labour of love album. There are a few tracks on their other albums that stand out, but they have recorded some right crap over recent years.

Celebrate the Bullet is easily The Selecters best album. Shame it is always so overlooked. Especially live. The band dont play much from it usually.

Leave things as they were. This would open up a whole can of worms. The world has moved on, not all for the better either, but songs, as films were of their time. Look at classics like Fairy Tale of N ...
