It is more than a replacement; it has introduced me to more Kane Gang material, making me wonder why this group never became bigger than they were. One of the greatest cds ever. These guys have talent. I bought this collection - thankfully, from a generous amazon marketplace seller - for less than 5 bucks.
If I had paid 6 for it, I would feel as if I'd been ripped off. I sought out this collection because of a song - a great song - that I vaguely remembered from the late 's. The beat was similar; the mood was similar. Well, Motortown is here. And - whaddaya know - they disappeared as fast as they had materialized. From the quality of this collection's songlist, that comes as no surprise to me. Too bad I couldn't find a CD single of Motortown. If you're a big fan of dated-sounding 80's fluff i. These decidedly un-funky white guys hit one outta the park, and that one was Motortown.
If, like me, you just have to have that song, pray you can find a marketplace seller like I did, who mercifully will satisfy your jones for less than 5 bucks. If not, prepare to be ripped off.

My first experience of The Kane Gang was the superb single, "Gun Law", which I still own in all its double-pack glory. Also tagged onto the end of Disc One is "It's a Gift", b-side of "Motortown" and a couple of unreleased tracks. In fact, it's ironic that their two most well-known tracks "Respect" and "Don't Look Any Further" were both covers. The extra tracks are not bad, but tend to be a little too Eaglesque, even for my now mature early 40's ears.
The Second CD is fantastic as the first nine tracks make up the bands second album, "Miracle" originally released in I listen to most of my music sat at my PC. It's all a matter of taste, but for me, 'Miracle' has to be one of the best soul albums ever recorded. One person found this helpful. Being totally honest I bought this cd as I've got " The Closest Thing To Heaven" on 7 inch vinyl, always loved it, no longer have a record player have searched for it on downloads but it's no-where to be found , finally found it on here : haven't had chance to play the whole album yet but the sound quality is great , and def sounds better than on vinyl!
One of my fave songs of the 80's! Closest Thing to Heaven was always my favourite song of theirs and i bought this cd on a whim of being able to listen to that said song, however i had forgotten how many other classic tunes they wrote and have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Kane Gang all over again.
