about

Compilation of singles, B-sides, compilation tracks and unreleased songs.

"Saloon produced a clutch of delightful, and at times surprisingly noisy sounding indie-pop gems and richly deserved to feature in Peel's Festive 50 on no less than four occasions; Impact and Free Fall in 2001 and Have You Seen The Light and Girls Are The New Boys in 2002, which achieved the number one spot in the 50 that year. All four tracks are featured here and they are unsurprisingly amongst the finest moments on the album.

Saloon drifted apart by 2004, though I've Found A Way, the final, previously unreleased track here, suggests they were still capable of much more, with its Velvets-style pop hooks and infectious harmony vocals."
