In the 25 years since Simply Red first broke onto the scene they’ve released 10 studio albums, racked up over 50 million global sales, notched up over 30 Top 40 UK singles, won countless awards, including three Brits, two Ivor Novellos and a Mobo Special Achievement. They’ve also gained one of the rarest prizes for a British artist with not just one, but two U.S. No.1 hit singles. And the achievements keep coming, "Stars" was the biggest selling album in the U.K. for two consecutive years and they have played over 1,000 live shows to over 10 million people. Now, Simply Red have just released their fantastic compilation album "Simply Red 25: The Greatest Hits". Fronted by the effervescent front man Mick Hucknall, the band are known for infusing soul, blues and pop resulting in smooth ballads. As the title suggests, the CD compiles 25 of the band's most-loved songs, including "Holding Back The Years", "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Stars", "For Your Babies", "Fairground", "Money's Too Tight To Mention", "Something Got Me Started", "You Make Me Feel Brand New", "Everytime We Say Goodbye" and a brand new track "Go Now".
