the original album was never released on cd at the time..were cds around then! it did get a limited release a couple of times but for along time it has been hard to find!

it a great showcase of early 80s pop! i love it because its what bananarama where all about..great pop tunes that stood the test of time..although vocally not amazing the harmonies are outstanding! it was raw and fresh at the time and not formulated like the albums they did with stock aitken waterman.

the big hits are here "shy boy" "really saying something" "na na na (kiss him goodbye) as well as "cheers then" which flopped - due to being a slow chrstmas feel song and not as chirpy as the previous singles and the first release "aie-a-mwana" which isnt polished but is catchy!

"dr love" is a great pop number which i knew from tracie! - paul youngs pop starlet at the time "young at heart" a cover of the bluebells no.1 hit but which sounds totally different!

although you never venture into celine dion seriousness as any time..every track is perfect pop..its young..its fun and the girls can show girls aloud ect how to do it..and they write a lot of their own songs!

a perfect summer album no matter how old or young you are!

There's no denying that the Deluxe 2CD + DVD Edition of 'Deep Sea Skiving' is a work of art to thumb through, as well as being a comprehensive collection of early Bananarama material. It's not a very practical design and is, in fact, so fiddly to deal with that I feel justified in sharing with it some of the bluer words that dwell up there in my vocabulary. But it looks nice.

Mind you, I do have my reservations about that cover photo. You'd never guess that these girls were fans of punk rock, would you? It says an awful lot about the fabulous Siobhan that she can still look alluring, even while suspended in mid-air and modelling a Gandalf hat. Poor old Keren looks as though she has used so much hairspray that her entire head is now unable to move and, as for Sara - she wears the sort of relentlessly cheerful expression that is usually the preserve of presenters on QVC. She's obviously got a job-lot of plastic lobsters that need shifting. I missed out on the original 'Deep Sea Skiving' album in 1983, on account of the fact that I had yet to be seized by the hormones. That is to say, I had not yet come to appreciate the unique talents of Sara, Keren and (most especially) Siobhan. Well, not their musical talents anyway. So I was very keen indeed to get my hands on this Deluxe Edition.

It is, literally, an embarrassment of riches. But, unfortunately in my case, they are not the sort of riches that can really grab my attention. As far as these very earliest Bananarama songs are concerned, the ones that are really worthy of note all escaped from their master-tape years ago and have been available as the central component of, much cheaper, Greatest Hits compilations for yonks.

The first thing I have to comment on is the quality of this reissue. It is absolutely stunning on all accounts. The hardbound book-like packaging is beautiful and thorough. Yes, the envelopes that hold the discs are not the best but I haven't had much problem with them. The remastering is surprisingly great. I had read an interview with the reissue producer and mastering engineer Tom Parker, and was concerned when he made a comment about the sound being mastered with the iPod generation in mind, though he managed wonderfully to provide louder volume while retaining much of the dynamic range. He should be given a medal. Another fear was unrealized when it turns out the entire set was remastered from original studio master tapes with no shoddy vinyl transfers to be found. Add to that, all of the transfers are beautiful. I don't hear any tape degradation at all. Just full, rich sound. The book contains scans of record sleeves and labels, including international releases. And with a DVD of all of the music videos, as well as a few TV appearances, this set encompasses just about anything anyone could ask for in a deluxe edition.

Now to the music. Bananarama are generally known for their more dancefloor oriented music, but this debut album shows them being a wonderful addition to the colorful character of the New Wave genre. The songs are often catchy or downright infectious. All of the singles from the album ('Shy Boy', 'Cheers Then', 'Really Saying Something', Aie A Mwana', 'Na Na Hey Hey') are still enjoyable 30 years later, while 'Young At Heart' has to be one of the catchiest songs ever written, and is my favorite on the album. The B sides expand the enjoyment with the equally catchy 'Girl About Town' and 'Tell Tale Signs'. The cover of the Sex Pistols' 'No Feelings' is hilariously bouncy.

This was Bananaramas long awaited debut album released in early 1983 after the trio of Sarah Dallin,Keren Woodward and Siobhan Fahey had been a pressence on the UK music scene and charts for almost a year,making their commercial breakthrough singing with the Fun Boy Three on Aint What You Do.Having gone on to release their own singles on London Records the inevitable debut album was just around the corner.Several songs on this set are credited as being written by the girls themselves alone and as legend has it the penniless trio wrote some of these whilst penniless in their London council flat.This album really stands up the test of time,especially in the aftermath of the eighties revival,for some of the best ideas in pop/dance,post punk and new wave can be heard on this rather innocent but bouncy debut.Aie A Mwana is an important single from the group,it wa stheir first ever release in September 1981 and manages to fit in with the other earthy DIY pop here,though being sung entirely in Swahili does give it a slight edge.The song was a cover of a track by a dance group named Black Blood and revived by the Nanas as a girl group anthem.Though this being an indie single it didn,t even dent the charts but still earned the trio a following on the club scene and a tiny article with a pic appeared in The Face magazine,a style bible of what was hip and happening in music and fashion.It was this picture and the song which brought the group to the attention of Terry Hall of Fun Boy Three and the rest is history!The album also contains their hit cover of the Velvelettes Really Saying Something which was reinterpreted as a cool urban sounding raw pop number with a detatched sounding vocal from the girls which [especially on this album]would become their hallmark.Read more ›
