"There's something for any soul fan."

More The Bamboos More The Bamboos

Squeeze 57 into 15. That was the challenge facing Lance Ferguson and one of Melbourne's finest soul exports, The Bamboos, when asked by their UK label Tru Thoughts to compile a 'best of' release reflecting their time with the label.

While this period didn't include the band's two most recent albums, there was still a hell of a lot of gold available to them. From the early days (Eel Oil) to one of their most successful commercial moments (I Got Burned), to the original Kay-Dee Records version of Tighten Up, there's something for any soul fan.
