A lot of people rate the Labour of Love series as UB40's best work, and this is certainly supported with sales figures.

However, which of there own originals albums do you consider to be their finest piece of work?

Promise & Lies for me love all the original tracks on there, I would have said WYFF but half the album are covers.

UB44

The second album I bought (Hologram cover), after Labour of Love.
Don't Slow Down, Silent Witness, Don't Do The Crime are 3 of my all time favourites.

The other albums were bought very soon after that :D

I admit I had to tosh a coin for this as I love all the early albums. Came to a choice was between Signing off and UB44. UB44 won cause its got The Key.

For me Signing Off. But Geoffry Morgan holds very fond memories cos that's the first time I saw them. Must of been about 14 or 15.

Having said that there's tracks I loved on UB44, Present Arms, Present Arms In Dub.... I don't really know the newer ones. Must check them out

God... how can I forget the viynl albums like SIGNING OFF, PRESENT ARMS, PRESENT ARMS IN DUB, UB44, UB40 LIVE, LABOUR OF LOVE, GEFFERY MORGAN, BAGGARIDDIM, RAT IN THE KITCHEN, THE BEST VOL 1 and LABOUR OF LOVE 2. But to choose one from a difficult question I go to Present Arms.
Having said that, all the albums are great from Signing Off to 24/7 also the future once. :wink:
