Box sets are generally horrible things containing more music than you could ever listen to. On the other hand there is this gem, and if you're stuck for a last-minute present for a pop lover in their 40s, this is the best 15 you will ever spend. Three discs, nearly 70 entirely guilt-free pleasures with songs such as "Oh Lori", "Angie Baby" and "Sky High" by the likes of Slik, Paper Lace, Racey and Chicory Tip. It all makes you long for the days when a group would grab our attention with an impossibly catchy tune rather than a name like Does it Offend You, Yeah? (Answer: no, it just makes you look stupid.)
