In a way it's the ultimate Champs album enthuses Danny & The Champions Of The World front man Danny George Wilson and he's not wrong. The double album runs from 2008's These Days taken from their self titled debut, to a selection of favourites from last year's critically acclaimed album Stay True (their finest set yet ???? MOJO), via the likes of Henry The Van from 2010's Streets Of Our Time and Colonel & The King from 2011s Hearts & Arrows. Its almost like a greatest hits of Danny & The Champions The World. However, this particular hits package captures what the studio recordings cant quite convey - the raw passion and energy of a Danny & The Champs live show. As Danny explains ever since I was a kid I've absolutely loved live recordings, ever since we played those bootleg cassettes in our dads car again and again... its something that a studio album cannot capture. This is what we sound like right now and I'm thrilled we were able to capture that.
Recorded live at a sold out hometown show at Jazz Cafe, Camden on the 6th March this year, featuring co-conspirators Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou, you can either take this as a welcome reminder of a shit-hot show, or a harsh lesson on how you should never pass up an opportunity to catch these guys live.
