HERE is a collection of almost every recording Dexys Midnight Runners produced in the early 1980s.

It includes both a BBC Radio 1 session and a BBC in Concert recording.

This was a time when the group was seen to be at its peak - and when it devised a show which was designed purely for live theatre.

The live performances using such material as the rhythm and blues number Respect and Until I Believe in My Soul gave the band a greater strength.

It was a time, too, when the line-up of the group changed dramatically after the chart successes of 1980.

Missing, however, is Come on Elaine and Jackie Wilson Said (I'm In Heaven When You Smile).

There is coming, however, an album later in the year covering the 25 years of the group's work.
