Reddiquette is to be followed Ah here now lads, don't be twats.

Why not the Mad Lads? While they may not have been as prolific as a lot of their contemporaries, they certainly had as much talent. This collection underscores that fact with some of the best classic soul singing and harmonizing you'll ever hear. Seeing Is Believing", "Cry Baby" and "So Nice" are prime examples of a classic soul ballad, a must if a group is to be taken seriously  . The only real misstep on the album is their cover of William Bell's classic "I forgot To Be Your Lover". It's almost a totally different song, and I mean that in a bad way. Otherwise a phenomenal collection of tunes here, one no soul afficianado should be without. She's the One. I Don't Have to Shop Around. Listen to The Best Of The Mad Lads now.

The Mad Lads were an American rhythm and blues vocal group, who recorded on the Stax subsidiary label Volt in the 1960s. Their biggest hits were "Don't Have To Shop Around" (1965) and "I Want Someone" (1966).
