AllMusic Review by

This compilation (credited to "The Heroes of Pub Rock") opens with five tracks by Ducks Deluxe, two studio recordings (one the original version of "Somethin's Goin' On") and three decent sounding, intense live tracks (including renditions of "Little Queenie" and "Route 66") recorded at the band's farewell gig at the 100 Club in London, where they're joined by Nick Lowe, Lee Brilleaux, and Martin Stone. Also contains tracks by Nick Lowe, Mick Green, the Pirates, Wilko Johnson and the Lew Lewis Band, and Das Luftwaffegeschaft, all of whom are worthwhile in their own right. (British import)
