Ikettes - Can’t Sit Down Cos It Feels So Good - Album

Can’t Sit Down… 'Cos It Feels So Good is a CD compilation from Kent Records, released in 2007. It features the complete Modern recordings from the Ikettes (six singles and the long-player Soul The Hits) with hits like Peaches 'N' Cream and I’m Blue (The Gong-Gong Song). All tracks are remastered and from much better sources than any previous releases, mostly in stereo. It includes also many unissued versions and alternative takes and the booklet contains lots of pictures and comprehensive new sleevenotes.
