The Very Best of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
It might not boast the all-encompassing nature of 1994's The Singles 1982-1987, and it might not be as succinct and flawlessly selected as the same year's Generation: The Best Of, but The Very Best of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry improves upon all of the previous compilations by acknowledging 1988's Nothing Wrong and 1989's Blow, the two records the band made for RCA after making the jump from Red Rhino.
