Product Description

CD Description

This collection brings together the best cuts from the BMG
years with b-sides and rare recordings.

Bow Wow Wow was Malcolm McLaren's first big project after the Sex Pistols imploded, and the erstwhile media manipulator made sure his new band bounded onto the scene with a whole gaggle of gimmicks.
The first was Annabella Lwin, a 14-year-old Burmese
immigrant McLaren found working in a laundry and decided
to remake into a post punk goddess. Then there was what
used to be Adam's Ants, the trio of Matthew Ashman
(guitar), Leroy Gorman (bass), and Dave Barbarossa
(drums), whom McLaren introduced to African music --
specifically, the sound of Burundi tribal drumming -- then
induced to dump Adam and follow him.
But it was the product that ultimately pulled the package
together. Bow Wow Wow's cassette-only first single, a
home-taping anthem called C-30, C-60, C-90 Go! , Much
the same can be said for the impossibly titled See Jungle!
See Jungle! [etc.] which introduced the group to this
country.
RCA turned the Bows over to a proven hit-maker: Kenny
Laguna, who converted the band's Burundi beat into a
jazzy Bo Diddley groove and gave it a near-hit with a
remake of the Strangeloves' I Want Candy .

1.0 out of 5 stars Sound Disaster 14 July 2010
By Cyrooks
Format:Audio CD
I couldn't agree more with the previous review. Awesome album as such - terrible, terrible mastering. Let's sign up for a mass action against whoever committed this crime...

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother...Cherry Red didn't. 4 July 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok before I start I would like to make it clear that I am not one of those negative "slag stuff off for the sake of it" fools that clog up the internet with useless and irrelivant opinions designed to elevate my own pathetic status by putting others down.
Here goes: This CD which for some reason is being sold as a "best of RCA Bow wow wow compilation" is actually a 2-disc set of which the first is the brilliant(deep breath)"See jungle!See jungle!Go join your gang yeah!City all over go ape crazy" album and the 2nd is various other tracks released on the RCA label.
The original vinyl release of this album sounded brilliant. The instrumentation is amazing and demands and deserves to be heard with good sound quality.
Some years back the US label "One way records" released this album on CD and for some unknown reason managed to make the album sound dull,muffled and lifeless.I can only assume this was down to either bad mastering or no mastering.
This release sounds no better than the "One-way records" release. Not only that but the biggest insult has to be that the opening 2 seconds (first three and a half beats of bar one to be boringly technical)of "Sinner,sinner,sinner" have been clipped!! It's as if whoever mastered it really didn't give a damn.
I'll tell you who also don't appear to give a damn and that's Cherry Red who are responsible for this sonic atrocity. They'll happily take my 11.99 but they won't put up the initial funding to pay someone to do a decent remastering job or even get at least one of their employees to check the release over before sending it out to the mass. They deserve to be taken to court. This is a massive rip-off and they need to pay for it.

2.0 out of 5 stars First CD Release Of Teenage Queen EP 3 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
Got it today. I have to agree with the previous reviewers, the sound is pretty mediocre. This album did sound tremendous on vinyl (at one time i owned a Japanese pressing), Sinner does start a couple seconds into the song, & while not mentioned in the other reviews, the liner notes are beyond lame.

At the same time, I got it for under $10 USD, & I'm looking at it as paying $9.50 for the Teenage Queen ep on cd.

2.0 out of 5 stars Teenage Queen EP On CD With Mediocre Sound Quality 3 Aug 2010
By G. Ratcheson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Got it today. I have to agree with the reviewers on Amazon.UK, the sound is pretty mediocre. This album did sound tremendous on vinyl (at one time i owned a Japanese pressing), & both cd's sound pretty mediocre here. Though at least it doesn't sound compressed/brickwalled. Sinner Sinner starts a couple seconds into the song, & while not mentioned in the Amazon.UK reviews, the liner notes are beyond lame.

Most importantly, it includes "Teenage Queen" & "Eating Raw Flesh" from the Japan only 12" which to the best of my knowledge has never been on cd before (Cowboy from the ep is included also). Teenage Queen actually was written for a Japan clothing commercial & (if I remember correctly) uses the music from the band's "Baby Oh No". CD #2 also collects a few singles & 2 1993 re-recordings. CD #1 is a poor mastering of their best album, See Jungle.

At the same time, I got it for under $10 USD, & I'm looking at it as paying $9.50 for the Teenage Queen ep on cd.

3.0 out of 5 stars In The Red 28 Feb 2011
By John Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So far only listening to the second disc since that's the hard to find material.
The sound quality is pretty poor. I suspect taken from vinyl source, but recorded in the red so there is audible distortion on most of the tracks, especially the Teenage Queen ep tracks. If it didn't have the distortion it would be great; as i like that wide open uncompressed sound.
Too bad they didn't have master tapes to work with. (sure doesn't sound like it at least)
I recommend not listening on headphones like i'm doing right now.
4.0 out of 5 stars Okay so it's more than Annabella Lwin 27 May 2013
By Jim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Their 'I Want Candy' video is what attracted me to the group. 33 years after the fact I appreciate some of the New Wave music I never did when I was their age. Bow Wow Wow and Debra Harry are my 2 favorites. I like BWW's willingness to experiment, but at the next turn they pay homage to Rock and Roll classics. Worth the money if you like the rebel nature of the genre and the primal beat. But then, I'm slightly musically handicapped, in the late seventies I thought BTO and the Guess Who were the be all end all...
5.0 out of 5 stars a Truly Great Album 25 Nov 2010
By dwave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first saw Bow Wow Wow open for the Pretenders way back and I thought they were an entertaining opening act and liked their groove. Something nudged me to pick up this album a while later, and after one or two listenings, I became a huge fan. Forget about all that crap about Malcom Mclaren or the lead singer being sixteen, this was one great original band. Their musicianship is top notch, their songs are melodic and while the lyrics are pretty out there, the music is really fun. As a musician myself, I really appreciated the way this band combined different genres into their own unique sound. I used to call it "African Surf" music.
"See Jungle" as this album was originally called, is really a gem. I would give almost every song on it an A for having a cool melodic hook, some really great guitar and bass playing, and originality. The songs on this album make "I want Candy" look like kids stuff, they are as innovative and well written as just about anything of their era.
I gotta say that I consider the bass player (can;t remember his name) to be the Stanley Clarke of New Wave, his mastery of melody is only exceeded by his technical skill. The guitar player (now deceased) had a great style, and he will always be on my top ten list of favorites.
Buy this Album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-Release Of Second Album...*Plus* Singles! 27 July 2010
By Alex Honda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This reissue by Cherry Red Records (which is part of Sony Music) of the second BOW WOW WOW release, SEE JUNGLE! SEE JUNGLE! GO JOIN YOUR GANG, YEAH! CITY ALL OVER, GO APE CRAZY, is pretty decent. It uses the same controversial album photo that features lead singer Annabella Lwin naked with the rest of the band in a recreation of a famous Manet painting.

The remaster sounds good, though my only frame of reference is the compilation We Are the 80's.

There are two CDs included in this set: the first is the original album, and the second CD includes singles and "B"-sides, including their biggest hit "I Want Candy."

A small booklet is included with color photos of the group and present day liner notes by Daryl Easlea.

Although I never owned the original album, most of the tracks sounded familiar to me like "Jungle Boy," "(I'm A) TV Savage," and "Go Wild In The Country." Perhaps I heard them on the radio (KROQ)or at friends' houses, but all of the songs are catchy and fun and remind me of the 80s and my crazy teen existence.

I suggest this reissue for fans who are familiar with BOW WOW WOW's work because of the high price. For others who want a taste, I suggest getting the above "We Are The 80s" title that includes their popular hits at a much lower price.
