Let's Make This Precious: The Best of Dexys Midnight Runners

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Let's Make This Precious: The Best of Dexys Midnight Runners collects 18 tracks from the genre-hopping creators of "Come on Eileen," including the hits in the U.K., at least "Celtic Soul Brothers More Please Thank You," "Geno," "Breaking Down the Walls of Heartache," and "Show Me." All of the best tracks here have been cherry-picked from the group's 1980 debut Searching for the Young Soul Rebels and 1982 smash Too-Rye-Ay, which makes a strong case for searching out the excellent 2002 reissues of each, but as samplers go, it's hard to beat this set of infectious folk-kissed, blue-eyed soul-infused new wave jams.
