It seems every couple years or so, a new 10cc compilation is released, more often than not offering nothing new for fans. As much as I love the band, I only need one copy of I’m not in Love, two at the most if I need one for the car, but that’s it and don't even get me started on how many 10cc live recordings are floating around out there from parts unknown, repacked for the unsuspecting masses.

Fortunately, The Complete UK Recordings is different. UK records were of course record mogul Jonathan King’s label. Remember him? He’s the guy who ‘discovered’ Genesis and after 10cc’s rejection from Apple records, signed the band and as they say, the rest is history.

This 2 CD set features the best songs from the debut to Sheet Music and everything in between including rare ‘B’ sides and radio edits, most of which have never been released on CD. Highlights include the delightful Waterfall, Bee in My Bonnet and Gizmo My Way featuring the legendary Godley and Crème designed instrument. The hard to find material is sequenced nicely between the more familiar, making this collection a fun listen for die-hard fans as well. Nicely done!
