Format: Audio CD
The album consists of a fine selection of showaddywaddy's hit singles; a couple of previously unreleased cover versions and two newer, self-penned songs. This will probably only appeal to existing fans who want to hear how the re-recording of the band's famous songs have been realised. However, this would also be a fantastic jumping on point for new fans as the quality of the work done here is mostly outstanding.
As the band always had a rep for judicious choice of material to release as singles, it is a joy to hear new recordings of those excellent songs. Of particular note, 'Sweet Music', 'Heavenly', 'When', 'Three Steps to Heaven' and 'A Little Bit of Soap' shine brightly.
The album's highlight is undoubtedly 'Runaway Girl', written by Dave Bartram. The lyrics, melody and instrumentation on this song easily matches and, may surpass, any other self-penned song the band have ever done. This would have been a huge hit if the song had been around during the band's commercial prime.
If you are a curious new showaddywaddy listener, then this is definitely the cd to act as an introduction. I just hope it becomes a bit easier to obtain in the future as it is a real gem, easily better than the greatest hits packages.

Format: Audio CD
After the string of 8 albums in the '70's and early '80's which are regarded as their main 'back catalogue', this CD came out in 1996 in mainland Europe only (it was recorded in Denmark). Worth buying just for the 3 new self-penned tracks ("Go Ahead Make My Day", "Runaway Girl" and "Closer To The One I Love") as well as a meaty version of "24 Hours From Tulsa" - which was originally going to be the first single off the album.
Dave Bartram's voice (always one of the strongest points about the band) is in excellent form, and the re-recorded versions of many of their '70's singles are pretty good, with "Heavenly" and "Sweet Little Rock 'n' Roller" being improvements on the originals. Another stand-out track is the brand new cover version: "Tossin' & Turnin'" which is one of the best things they've EVER done!
As a stop-gap between 1991's "Jump, Boogie & Jive" and the forthcoming "Hey Rock 'n' Roll Show" CD (April 2002) this is well-worth getting hold of!

Showaddywaddy is one of the best doo wop, 50s style rock bands from 1974 when they got started to this day. Feel good sounds done with great synthesis and vibe. whether they are 50s revivals or original this stuff is real mood lifter and it is no wonder it still is popular in the United Kingdom.
This CD pretty much puts their best works together.
Personal favourites include the soul-filled Heavenly, the smooth Heartbeat, the gutsy Hey Rock n Roll, the fulsome 24 Hours from Tulsa, the wonderful Three Steps to Heaven, the smooth soulful Runaway Girl and the sorrowful A Little Bit of Soap.
Definitely a must for anyone who likes old rock tunes, doo wop or just feel good music.
