Oh those lovely Orchids. This is a fantastic round up of the best bits of the Sarah Records mainstays career alongside a whole CD of demos and outtakes. The band have a unique and lovelorn take on Scottish indie pop which in a perfect world would have them cited alongside Orange Juice and Teenage Fanclub as Great Scottish Bands. Get on board.

9/10 Clinton Staff review, 02 October 2017

I'm so sorry that I forgot about the Orchids. I used to like them a lot back in the day but never really gave them a second thought after they split. This all changed when I saw then 'in concert' last year in the glamorous surroundings of Preston. The gig was triumphant  - they may have looked like a convention of sprightly grandfathers had taken the stage but as soon as James Hackett opened his throat then it was immediately obvious they had that extra something that is rare in a world of ok to middling indie bands. 

This essential 2CD collection takes all the best bits from their career. 'Apologies', 'What Will We Do Next', 'Peaches', 'Something For The Longing', 'Thaumaturgy' are all indie-pop classics and unlike some, the band were happy to expand their sound into dance-pop and electronic territories without embarrassing themselves. For the uninitiated think of some kind of cross between Teenage Fanclub, Felt and St Etienne, add in typically winsome Sarah Records mope and you are somewhere close.

Not only is this a worthwhile 'best of' but there's an extra CD with 18 further rare tracks, demos and alternate versions.
