The Best of James
...what a great compilation CD, 1996, of a great Manchester based guitar band...
The band that was almost too happy for Manchester.
The 18 songs here include the hit "Laid", and several other UK hits that were US sleepers, including "Come Home", "Sit Down", "She's a Star", and others.
The compilation attests to the wonderful pop sensibility that characterised the James sound, as well as to the lyrical depth that helped the band develop the dedicated following that enabled its survival long after the Madchester scene had floundered.
