3 stars out of 4
An essential collection of FYC's greatest hits in extended/remixed
versions: from the classic "She drives me crazy" (12"
version and rap version featuring Monie Love), "Good thing"
(12"), another rap version ("I'm not satisfied"), two
manipulations of "Johnny come home" (one of which was made
by S-Express' Mark Moore). Other remixers include Jazzie B & Nellee
Hooper (aka Soul II Soul's production team), David Z, Smith & Mighty
and FYC themselves, or better the duo Steele/Cox the musical part of the
trio fronted by Roland Gift. The finest moments are Moore's mix of
"Johnny come home" and "I'm not the man I used to be"
with the Soul II Soul beat treatment. Simply perfect. The rest of the
album is good but some duplicates may sound a bit redundant. The original
vinyl had 10 tracks; the cd version has two bonus cuts including a version
of "Tired of getting pushed around", a killer house track
originally put out in 1988 by Steele and Cox under the alias Two Men,
Drum Machine and A Trumpet.
