With no less than five Top 5 UK albums and 18 Top 40 singles, Deacon Blue's contribution to the British pop landscape is not to be sniffed at. Though the band broke up in the middle of the 90s – rumour has it they buckled under the pressure of (unsuccessfully) trying to break the US market – they recently reformed, playing to crowds of 30,000 and even getting back in the studio to record new material. Following the 2006 re-release of their classic debut LP Raintown – which spent an incredible 77 weeks in the album chart from May 1987 - Singles offers 16 of the band's 80s/90s hits, plus three new tracks. Starting with their debut smash, "Dignity" the compilation moves through their best known commercial hits – "Real Gone Kid", "Wages Day" and "Fergus Sings The Blues" (all from the 1989 album When The World Knows Your Name)– as well as material from more experimental releases such as Fellow Hoodlums (1991) and Whatever You Say, Say Nothing (1993). Despite being recorded in an era not known for dating well, the tracks here maintain an evergreen freshness, to the point where new songs "The One About Loneliness", "Haunted" and "Bigger Than Dynamite" seem perfectly in place with the rest of the retrospective

1. Dignity
2. Real Gone Kid
3. Wages Day
4. Fergus Sings The Blues
5. Twist And Shout
6. Bigger Than Dynamite
7. Your Swaying Arms

great album great price
Excellent band!
For I long time I thought Deak and Blue were a duo...
Great band, great CD, great price. Hot.
Very hot! Worst ever live band though.
Used to love these 'back in the day'! Heat added.
God this makes me feel old 20 odd years ago. Classic stuff
Very hot! Worst ever live band though.

No way! check them out live here and tell me again they are the worst!

Any thoughts whether the 2 disc 'Dignity' Best of is worth the £2 extra?
The best album to go for would be their first, "Raintown" absolute classic, every songs a killer!

Depends if you've got any of their other albums. If I didn't have much of their stuff I'd shell out the extra £2 for 'Dignity', which is an excellent introduction to an excellent band.

And to whoever said they were a terrible live band (above) - nonsense, they were (and are) one of the best live bands out there.
