Hearing it recently reminded me of the days when an act could be bubblegum pop (the equivalent of Will or Gareth today) but still reasonably in charge of their career, have something vaguely intelligent to sing about (side 2 takes media treatment of celebs as a recurring theme) AND be musically imaginative. I saw Adam at Ipswich Gaumont in 1982, around the same time as this recording, and he was brill. Star songs on this disc include Something Girls, Desperate.... Here Comes The Grump and Cajun Twisters. Some bonus tracks on the CD (Out-takes, 45's that were different from album i.e. "Desperate...." and "Goody.." etc) would have been good, but for the music, 5 stars.
