LABEL: Cherry Red
01. Happy Head
The Mighty Lemon Drops were one of the leading lights of the Independent
Pop scene in the UK in the mid 80's. This 19 track 'Best Of' collection is
the ultimate collection of the band that hail from Wolverhampton. The booklet
features a complete discography incorporating all the original front cover
a written introduction by the band of each of the songs
on the album and from where the tracks were sourced.A year after Echo & the
Bunnymen released their final album of the â??80s,
the Mighty Lemon Drops recorded World Without End, an LP that actually sounds
closer to the Echo & the Bunnymen's earlier stabs at late â??60s psychedelia.
Recalling Echo & the Bunnymen albums such as Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here,
World Without End is almost like a missing piece in the Bunnymen's discography. This
CD features all the bands best known tracks from their first single "Like
An Angel", "Into The Heart Of Love", "Other
Side Of You", "My Biggest Thrill", "Beautiful Shame", "Out
Of Hand", "Inside Out" and "Fall Down". Other band
favourites on the CD include "Happy Head", 13th Floor Elevators'
classic "Splash #1" and the title track "Rollercoaster".
This is probably the best collection available of the band.
