Product Overview

A triple box set featuring UB40's pop/reggae classics, Labour of Love I/II/III celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Labour of Love I debut release. All three volumes were recorded by the band as tributes to the artists who inspired them. Each album features a selection of songs which represent an era & a golden age, primarily the 60s and 70s. The songs were recorded originally by some of the greatest influences in popular & reggae music, namely Bob Marley and the Wailers, The Melodians, The Paragons, Jimmy Cliff, The Mighty Diamonds, Ken Boothe and Johnny Osbourne.

The box set includes a 40 page booklet featuring original artwork from all 3 albums. All albums have been digitally remastered.

For those UB40 fans who have to have everything, this triple-disc box replaces the Labour of Love albums individually -- or at least it is meant to. Virtually every single is here, and there's a load of B-sides, 12" mixes, and the best of the album cuts. Only the hardest of the hardcore followers of the band will be slapping down the cash for this, however, since Labour of Love is far too much of a good thing for the average or novice listener. ~ Thom Jurek
