The Best Of The Beautiful South: Carry On Up The Charts
Released: Oct 1995
Label: Island Def Jam
Paul Heaton's band was a highly respected pop act that surprised everyone (including itself) when this singles collection became one of the biggest U.K. hits in history. The Beautiful South's evolution from smooth but biting satirists of modern culture to bitterly sensitive chroniclers of the joys and pains of everyday life is well documented on this English pop classic.
