Format: Audio CD
The third and final volume of Showaddywaddy's singles collection - this covers 1980-1983 and includes 3 singles released by RCA records in 1982 / 1983 (this explains the 'Plus' in the title).
Moments of excellence (You Are Love, Soul & Inspiration, I Want You To Be My Girl, Run For Your Life, Multiplication) alongside quite frankly, three of their worst ever songs - 'Good Timing' (a cover), 'Do It Again' and 'Tribute'.
Dave Bartram (lead singer) also did a brilliant solo single in 1983 ('Black Ice' / 'Excitement') which would have been a worthy inclusion as it was released between 'Goody Goody' and 'Soul & Inspiration' I think, but I guess getting the rights etc. proved too difficult. Whatever, the quality of the A-Sides on this collection is consistent and most of the self-written B-Sides are also strong.
Although their most successful period ended in late 1979, some of these singles still hit the Top 40 and 'Who Put The Bomp?' was their last TOTP performance in September 1982.
It's great to have all of their singles collected together over 3 CD's (including 23 Top 40 entries over 9 years!) and I recommend the 3 volumes to all lovers of energetic pop music that you can listen to many times over.

I have always been a fan of the self penned tracks that Showaddywaddy used as their B sides and this albulm doesn't disappoint with 2 of my favourites Teen Canteen & Cool Cool Cat included here. Although these tracks represent the start of the group's decline as a chart act, tracks such as Why Do Lovers Break each Others Hearts? and Multiplication revive memories of the always brilliant stage show that the band put together. They may be touring just now as part of their 30th anniversary celebrations but the music is as fresh and alive as it was during their hey-days of the 70's and early 80's. They "Always and Ever" have been my "Soul and Inspiration" and its "Goody Goody" to see their albums being rereleased on CD so all you "Cool Cool Cat"s get yourselves out of the "Teen Canteen" and pay "Tribute " to The Greatest Rock'N'Roll Band In The Land-Showaddywaddy. Get out there, buy the album and lets here the boys "Do It Again"

As a huge Showaddywaddy fan I have heard and enjoyed the songs for many years, and will continue to do so. However, the songs contained on this album reflect a group that had passed it's popularity peak. Whilst the stage shows have, to this day, reflected the best of Showaddywaddy the latter stages of their recording career didn't really do them justice. The cover versions that Arista insisted upon became increasingly formulaic and ill-judged. "Who put the bomp...?" and "Do Wah Diddy" were poor efforts by their standards, and reflected the internal divisions in the band at the time.
The high point of this collection is the beautiful self-penned "You are love" which is a gorgeous song that should have been a single in it's own right. It is this song that lifts a 3 star collection to the level of 4 star. If you are a fan this is worth checking out. If not it is unlikely to convert you.
