    JAMES: THE BEST OF is an excellent sampling of the late output of the band that was almost too happy for Manchester. Culled mostly from James's albums from the 1990s, the 18 songs here include the smash hit "Laid," and several other UK hits that were US sleepers, including "Come Home," "Sit Down," "She's a Star," and others.
    Sadly, JAMES: THE BEST OF provides only one example of the band's earlier work on Factory Records. Nevertheless, the compilation attests to the wonderful pop sensibility that characterized the James sound, as well as to the lyrical depth that helped the band develop the dedicated following that enabled its survival long after the Madchester scene had floundered. James's phenomenal staying power is well documented on JAMES: THE BEST OF.
