Be Bop Deluxe – The Best Of And The Rest Of Be Bop Deluxe

Hmm, a 70s English rock band with prog and glam leanings, and science fiction in the lyrics? Sign me up!

This 2LP set is a great listen, pure classic in the best definition of the term. There is so much gold in the lyrics and in the music, a combination that makes this one a set I play often enough in the rotation. Everyone should know this band, they’re awesome!


Track Listing:

Side 1: Axe Victim / Maid In Heaven / Music In Dreamland / Sister Seagull / Sleep That Burns / Ships In The Night

Side 2: Blazing Apostles / Kiss Of Light / Dance Of The Uncle Sam Humanoids / Forbidden Lovers / Panic In The World

Side 3: Blimps / Autosexual / Lovers Are Mortal / Shine /  Quest For The Harvest Of The Stars

Side 4: Japan / Speed Of The Wind / Lights / Blue As A Jewel / Face In The Rain / Futurist Manifesto

  1. This is a great primer to the BBD catalog, and was my introduction to their music. Every album they released is essential in my opinion but if someone is only going to own one of their releases then they can’t go wrong with this one.


  2. I like this band’s sound – I only have the one album but should probably hear more.


  3. Never heard of them. They either have a silly name for a rock band or I haven’t become accustomed to it.


  4. Skull axe in the video is pretty cool. I like those unusual specialty guitars


  5. Although I can always Be Bop.
    I can not Be Bop Deluxe.


  6. This is pretty cool. It’s slightly dated but some modern production would quickly fix that.
