Alvin Stardust was part of the UK glamrock wave in the seventies but never broke through to the US market. His sound is quite special though, high powered riffs, brilliant guitar work, a soulful voice and exceptionally tuneful melodic songs. He had a knack for integrating those familiar 50s rock riffs with the glam guitar sound of the 70s. Most of his greatest hits are included here, like the wonderful My Coo Ca Choo, Jealous Mind, Red Dress, You You You and the gorgeous Pretend with its inspirational lyrics. A bonus is the duet version of My Coo Ca Choo. This great album just goes to show that some of the best music is buried in obscurity. If you like tuneful high powered, fast paced pop-rock, you'll love the sound of Stardust.
