While not nearly as thorough as 1992's ridiculously complete Funkyworld: The Best of Lipps, Inc.
delivers all of the uptempo proto-new wave hits in one convenient package. Of course, the bad and good are present (why on earth anyone would unearth "Jazzy" and "I Need Some Cash" for a revival is beyond a guess), but the positive thing is that the good outweighs the bad with Lipps Inc.
, with some high-energy disco stompers and fun new wave numbers that will light up any party. Collectors of the group might want to stick with the aforementioned Funkyworld
, but casual listeners will find this a more than sufficient survey of a brief yet largely unheralded career.
