Product Description

The 1984 “Bananarama” album found Keren, Sara and Siobhan continuing their partnership with Jolley & Swain and building on the success of their debut with a more mature and reflective follow-up. The instant classics “Cruel Summer” and “Robert De Niro’s Waiting” showcased the group’s own songwriting and extended their global pop appeal. Also featured are the hit singles “Rough Justice”, “Hot Line To Heaven” and “The Wild Life” Remastered from the original studio tapes, this Deluxe 2 CD + DVD casebound book edition, expertly compiled and annotated by acknowledged expert Tom Parker, features another twenty-five bonus tracks! Aside from the non-album B-sides, and amongst the many mixes, are five previously unreleased tracks. The DVD features seven promo videos, as well as four BBC TV appearances, all on DVD for the first time ever. The 28-page book contains photos and memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes.

Bananarama's self-titled second studio album was all about consolidation. After successfully making a name for themselves away from Fun Boy Three, the group needed to cement their place in the pop echelon. As such, "Bananarama" must surely be considered a soaring success.

Notable for spawning two of their biggest ever hits ("Cruel Summer" and "Robert De Niro's Waiting") as well as two of their most criminally overlooked ("Rough Justice" and the glorious "Hotline To Heaven"), this album has so much more to offer, and holds up magnificently in this remastered form with pertinent bonus tracks.

A graduate of that 80s school of thought which stated that an album was better off being concise and to the point; the original studio album accommodated a mere 9 tracks, but each of them has a place - "all killer; no filler", if you will.

Surprisingly poignant in places and flowing seamlessly throughout, this second long player is supremely assured, confident and brimming with determined musical intent. And there we were thinking they were just out for a laugh!

Highly recommended.

Bananaramas second album saw the trio of Sarah Dallin,Keren Woodward and Siobhan Fahey develop their sound and image down a more mature path.Stylistically the approach was still pop with a new wave /post punk/post disco feel but lyrically the girls were starting to get serious and political.The albums opening number and lead of single is the classic Cruel Summer a song written about the claustraphobic intensity of summer heat and lonliness,a state of mind song which everyone interpreted as love or anti love song.The follow up release Robert de Niros Waiting another smash hit self penned classic with an uplifting feel that disguises the dark menacing nature of the lyrical content.The song was actually about a date rape victim emmersing herself in a fantasy world were Robert de Niro was her ideal man but of course everyone assumes the song is a lyrical tribute to the actor.Meenwhile the rest of the album has a somewhat overt darker feel then the debut,State Im In sounds like a brash motown homage with an infectious chorus and angst ridden lyrics this would have made a more obvious follow up to the established smash hits Cruel Summer and Robert de Niros Waiting.Though the critically accliamed Rough Justice was a moderate hit and is still a highlight today this was the third release from the album and the first of three consecutive non top twenties for the group,an indication that the music buying public prefered a more lighter fun loving trio as opposed to a socially concious one.Still the simple,emotive and rather innocent song is amongst one of their best and is included here in 2007 re release in both album and single versions.Read more ›

Definitely their finest hour, in my opinion, and quite a progression from 'Deep Sea Skiving'. It's just a great mixture of fun, pop stuff like 'Dream Baby', 'Cruel Summer' and 'Robert De Niro's Waiting' along with harder-edged material like 'Hotline To Heaven' and 'Rough Justice' However, it all sounds great and this edition has been superbly remastered, and padded out with a good number of bonus tracks including their US hit, 'The Wild Life'.

The next 2 albums, the heavier 'True Confessions' and the poptastic 'Wow!' are excellent too, but 'Bananarama' will always be my personal favourite.

Remember the fold-out poster with lyrics from the 1984 vinyl LP? Those were the days, eh?!

Like all of Edsel's reissues this is a beautifully produced album and full of goodies. Cased in a hardback book and reusing much of the original artwork and fonts, even the girls' little handwriten bits are here which were missing from the 2007 Rhino release.

This CD is perhaps my favourite by Bananarama. Keeping the superbly produced pop perfection with a slight melancholic edge of "Deep Sea Skiving" but more serious in tone, this CD still sounds great today. CD1 features the original 8 track album (9 tracks now the "Link" at the end of side 1 is given its own track number) along with the B-sides and the fabulous soundtrack song "The Wild Life".

Unreleased gems come in a 12" mix and instrumental of "The Wild Life", which give a whole new dimension to this favourite. This song had limited release anyway and hearing these for the first time is great. We're also treated to an unreleased 12" of the pop-with-a-consience classic "Rough Justice" and unsegued versions of "Dream Baby" and "King of the Jungle", the latter two for completists. The instrumental of "State I'm In" is begging for the listener to get up and do karaoke in the style of the video to this song (as found on disc 3)

The 1989 remix of "Cruel Summer" is tagged on, jarringly rather awkwardly with the timeless pop elsewhere. Strangely "Venus" and "I Heard a Rumour" were remixed at the same time as these but these have not been included on their respective album reissues. Perhaps just as well, they don't come close to the original perfection.

Moving onto the DVD, all the original videos are here of course. There's a marked progression from "Cruel Summer", where the girls are a little unstyled (see "Deep Sea Skiving), but by "Rough Justice" are fantastically glamourous.
