Product Description & Reviews
Paul Weller's Hit Parade, his first ever career spanning collection, chronicles 30 years of milestone work from one of the world's best songwriters. In 23 tracks, Hit Parade is a comprehensive Weller anthology. Between 1977 and 1982, Weller released six wildly successful albums with The Jam, who still hold the UK record for most simultaneous Top 75 singles (including US smash 'Town Called Malice'). After The Jam, Weller formed The Style Council, with whom he scored 19 consecutive hits on the UK charts and performed at Live Aid. Since 1992, Weller has released eight critically acclaimed studio albums, including Stanley Road, considered one of the best British rock albums of all time. Finally, Hit Parade combines work from all three spectacular Paul Weller career stages into one astonishing package. Also available is a 4-disc limited-edition boxed set that includes a 60 page booklet - a truly comprehensive Weller collection. With three decades of acclaimed songwriting behind him, former Jam frontman Paul Weller knows a thing or two about knocking up a catchy tune. It may come as a surprise, but Hit Parade is Weller's first major career retrospective, combining material from his Jam and Style Council days, as well as from his last 15 or so years as a solo artist. Released to coincide with a high-profile full-length BBC documentary, Hit Parade features 23 of his biggest hits. Seminal Jam anthems such as "Town Called Malice", "Going Underground", "Eton Rifles" and "Down In The Tube Station", sit surprisingly well next to Style Council selections like "Shout To The Top!" and "You're The Best Thing", connected of course via Weller's distinctive, raw vocals and his dual passion for soul and rock. Not all of his solo albums are represented, but most of his best loved records are here; "Wild Wood" and "Sunflower" (from Wild Wood), as well as songs from Stanley Road and 2005's As Is Now. It's a compelling profile of a man whose unique sound has proved not only thoroughly consistent, but also impressively enduring. --Paul Sullivan
