Air Age Anthology is a double-disc set covering Be Bop Deluxe's entire career, culling highlights from each record (although the booklet doesn't tell which track came from which album). Be Bop Deluxe was an album-oriented band, but this compilation nevertheless encapsulates the group's appeal and achievements, making it useful for casual fans.
This double disc anthology does a wonderful job of spanning Be Bop Deluxe's collected works. The strongest cuts, and the majority of the collection, come from Sunburst Finish, Modern Music, and Futurama(now out of print). The wonderful live album, Live in the Air Age(also out of print), is represented by only two cuts. There are four from the generally weak Axe Victim and a handful from their inconsistent swan song Drastic Plastic. There are also a few rarities tossed in as an added bonus. Bill Nelson's creativity, musicianship(he is a sorely underated guitarist), and songwriting are truly outstanding. This collection is highly recommended.
Personnel:
Bill Nelson - guitar, vocals
Charlie Tumahai - bass, vocals
Andy Clarke - keyboards
Simon Fox - drums
Ian Parkin - guitar
Robert Bryan - bass
Nicholas Chatterton-Dew - drums
