Peter Cunnah and Al Mackenzie, a.k.a. D:Ream are probably best known for their hits Things Can Only Get Better and UR The Best Thing, or that they had a famous scientist play keyboards for them!

However, there is so much more than that to discover. They have had two UK Top 10 albums: 1993’s D:ream On Vo1 and 1995’s World plus ten Top 40 singles. Things Can Only Get Better was no.1 for four weeks in 1994 then was famously co-opted as the anthem in 1997 by Tony Blair’s Labour Party, writing D:Ream into English history; pop, political and otherwise!

New Double CD album - The Best Thing is a collection of these hits, remastered from the original 2” tapes. Also included are unreleased live versions of tracks from their 1995 Shepherds Bush Empire gig, three unreleased demos including the original instrumental version of Things Can Only Get Better, two newly commissioned remixes from Mark Knight and Illyus & Barrientos and finally some re-found unreleased remixes from the archive by Sasha, Leftfield, MK, Sure is Pure and The Joy.
