A Real Labour of Love is the nineteenth studio album by UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey. It peaked at number 2 on the UK Albums Chart, making it the highest-charting UB40 album since Promises and Lies, which reached number-one in 1993. In 2008, Ali Campbell ceremoniously quit UB40 after 30 years as their lead singer; he was soon followed by founding member, keyboardist Mickey Virtue. Trumpeter and toaster Astro left the band in 2013 and the trio reunited to release the 2014 album Silhouette

For those UB40 fans who have to have everything, this triple-disc box replaces the Labour of Love albums individually - or at least it is meant to. Virtually every single is here, and there's a load of B-sides, 12" mixes, and the best of the album cuts. Only the hardest of the hardcore followers of the band will be slapping down the cash for this, however, since Labour of Love is far too much of a good thing for the average or novice listener.

Labour of Love II is the ninth album and second covers album by UB40, released in 1989. The album contained two Top Ten Billboard Hot 100 hits – "Here I Am (Come and Take Me)" peaked at No. 7, "The Way You Do the Things You Do" peaked at No. 6 – and "Kingston Town" reached No. 4 on the UK singles chart. Here I Am (Come and Take Me)" (original by Al Green; modelled after the reggae arrangement by Irving "Al" Brown) – 4:00. Tears from My Eyes" (Teddy Davis) – 3:50. Groovin'" (Byron Lee) – 3:50.
