Madness‘s first 11 singles with B-sides, plus a promo single, on individual CDs with their original 7″ artwork, all placed neatly inside a stylish flip-top box designed by bassist Bedders. Of course, it’s what’s on the CDs that really counts, but that was never going to be a problem. You see, for all their reputation as zany, whacky japesters, Madness were a seriously important band. This volume finds Madness at their peak when they had 11 top 20 singles in the space of two and a half years, nine of the top 10, and all this when singles were important currency rather than only being bought by pre-adolescent schoolgirls with too much money and too little fatherly attention.
