…gives listeners the opportunity to delve into the band’s many tracks that, until now, have never been released on CD before – making this a very collectable affair indeed!…Most of the tracks are certainly worth it and deserve to be checked out, if only for nostalgia’s sake.

Rescue Co. No.1 released a number of singles between 1971 and 1975 and although these were spread across a few labels due to licensing deals (Pye, RAK, Polydor and RCA amongst others), this 20 track anthology brings them all together on CD for the first time and A and B sides alike are all included on the album. Highlights include ‘Life’s Too Short’, ‘No Man’s Land’, ‘I Want To Save You’, ‘Esmeralda’/'As Long As You Want Me To’ (both produced by Pip Williams- Status Quo, The Flame, Mostly Autumn) and ‘Mrs Mann’.
The band eventually split up in 1975 as they felt that nothing further was going to happen.

If you weren’t around in the early 70s, this compilations serves as a strikingly illustrative primer. Stock images of Raleigh Chopper handlebars and Cresta lemonade bottles flash before the mind’s eye. You can practically smell their trousers.
