Thanks for that, 13 tracks that I don't have on the two Style Council compilations I already have, plus some extended and demo versions, so worth it for me

Ordered the CD from Zoom, £8,09 with free postage and 10% off - bargain Very Happy

The Style Council released some great singles. When I first heard Speak Like A Child it almost made up for The Jam splitting. Well, almost.

I was always found of Come To Milton Keynes. A very underrated single.

I agree, although I liked them - there was a part of me intent on not liking them if that makes sense - an inbuilt resentment because of the Jam split.

I imagine the Jam could of done a good version of Walls come tumbling down

Very under rated band. Weller wrote some of his best stuff with them. I like Boy who cried wolf. Ghosts of Dachau is very atmospheric and How she threw it all away,those three are great tracks,along with many more.
