Fun Boy Three formed in the summer of 1981 when Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Neville Staples broke away from The Specials.

The band quickly hit the UK top 40 charts with their debut single, ‘The Lunatics (Have Taken Over The Asylum). This was followed in early ’82 by two UK Top 10 singles with Bananarama, ‘T’Aint What You Do (It’s The Way That You Do It)’ and ‘Really Saying Something’. A further 7 singles (Summertime, The Tunnel of Love, Our Lips Are Sealed etc.) and two albums, The Fun Boy Three (1982) and Waiting (1983), the later produced by Talking Heads front man, David Byrne, were released before calling it a day in the Summer of 1983.

The Complete Fun Boy Three includes 69 audio tracks which brings together all the official recordings (albums/singles/b-sides/remixes/live and previously unreleased outtakes). The 27 track DVD includes all their promo videos, Top of The Pops performances and a live concert from 1983.

This is packaged in a DVD Sized hardback book, with newly written sleeves notes by John Earls (Classic Pop/Record Collector) with contributions from the band and photographs.
The DVD is Region 0 /NTSC coded.
