The Style Council, Paul Weller's '80s post-Jam, jazzy R&B duo with Mick Talbot, are getting a band new career-spanning retrospective, Long Hot Summers: The Story of The Style Council, which will be out October 30. The 2-CD, 3-vinyl-LP set features all their singles, like "My Ever Changing Moods," "The Long Hot Summer," "Shout it To the Top," "You’re The Best Thing," and "Have You Ever Had it Blue?," plus some of their best deep cuts, extended mixes, demos and rarities.

The Style Council was also Weller at his most politically active, when he was an active member of anti-Thatcher musicians collective Red Wedge (with Billy Bragg, Jimmy Somerville and others). With the announce of the compilation, they've shared the extended mix of "Dropping Bombs On The Whitehouse" -- one of the rarities on the album -- which you can check out below.
