I believe the "Labour of Love" albums are albums that consist entirely of covers. I think this is the best, but "Labour of Love II: is also worthy. On multiple occasions, UB40 took Motown hits and then turned them into great reggae cover versions.

This is their best album I love the way 'Please don't make me cry' comes in off the tail end of 'Keep On Moving' all covers but great versions 'Many Rivers To Cross'.

Forget "Wine". Check out "Please dont make me cry, Sweet sensation and guilty". Real emotion and this band at its best.
