The English Beat
1983: IRS CD70040
Generally I wouldnt include this CD in my collection of reviews, as its mostly a greatest-hits kind of package, but it did break the mold by including a few B-sides and live versions in addition to the long version of Save It for Later (the Cant Get Used to Losing You extension is negligible). Most important are the three B-sides: Too Nice to Talk to, Whats Your Best Thing, and Hit It (an inimitible paeon to masturbation, featuring the chorus which begins Autoerotic / Well you could not be in better hands / Autoerotic / When it comes down to love you please yourself).
