Released:
Label: Polydor
Our Favourite Shop, from 1985, is remembered as The Style Council's strongest LP, yet their non-album singles and B-sides from the same year are, if anything, even better. "Spin Drifting," "The Piccadilly Trail" and "A Casual Affair" are exquisite folk-rock/soul hybrids, while "The Whole Point of No Return" gets a shimmering bossa-jazz rewrite, going from a political manifesto to an expression of personal freedom in the process. "Blood Sports" explains why nature-lover Weller became a vegetarian, and the gripping "Ghosts of Dachau" is in a genre of its own -- a concentration-camp love song.
