Product Description

CD Description

An essential reissue of the breakthrough debut album for
the one of the leading pop band's of the 80's.
This 16 track collection features the 10 tracks of the original
album plus 6 bonus tracks.
The album was originally released in August 1985 and peaked at
number 12 in the UK album charts.
The album includes production and remix work from Loose Ends,
Paul Hardcastle and The Limit.
This collection features the album and 12" versions of five hits
including their first top 10 single System Addict #3, All Fall
Down #15, Let Me Be The One #18, Love Take Over #25 and
RSVP #45.
The two original bonus tracks featured include the much sought
after Problematic the band's debut single from 1983 and b/side
Love Games both of which have never been available on CD
before.
Five bonus 12 remixes are also included, many of which appear
on CD for the first time: All Fall Down (M & M Remix), Let Me
Be The One (Philadelphia Remix), Love Take Over (The
Limited Edition Mix), R.S.V.P. (Urban Remix), System Addict
(M&M Remix).
The CD booklet will include comprehensive sleeve notes and a
full UK singles discography featuring many of the original single
sleeves.
The Five Star story began in 1983 when the children of reggae
musician Buster Pearson decided to form their own pop group.
Under their father's watchful managerial eye, they signed to his
own label Tent Records. Their debut album "Luxury Of Life" was
released in August 1985 and peaked at #12 in the album charts.
The band went on to enjoy extensive success and were crowned
Top British Group at both the Brit and Smash Hits award
ceremonies in 1987. In the 1980s the band recorded 21 hit
singles, 11 of them top 20, and four original albums followed by
a Greatest Hits album in 1989. The band, likened predictably to
the Jackson 5 were one of the leading UK pop acts of the
decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars An 80's gem for all soul/pop fans 16 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
A massive thank you and hands up to the guys at Cherry Pop and more importantly to Michael Silvester who has dedicated so many years to this amazing 80's family pop group for helping to get this re-issue off the ground. It's such a shame that The Pearsons themselves declined to be involved in the re-issue of their fresh debut album.

Denises vocals are just outstanding! Crystal clear and so slick, catchy and infectious! The album is as unique now as it was 25 years ago back in 1985. The bonus tracks in themselves are worth purchasing this CD for as it's the first time any of them have been released on CD.

This CD makes you realise how unique 5 Star were despite the tiring comparisions to The Jackson 5. It's such a travesty that they were not given the chance to grow and have more longevity and success! They paved the way for so many black artists. The super slickness of their dance routines and their young, youthful fresh look!

The sleeve notes are very informative and go in-depth into how the album was put together, with interviews with producers, remixers and song writers. Stand out tracks are, Love Take Over, Now I'm In Control and Winning. But let's not forget that 80's synth pop classic, System Addict.

Take a trip dowm memory lane and re-live the tunes of these 80's icons of shoulder pads, dance rountines and catchy pop songs!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star yes they are 15 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a great pop album and Cherry have done well with the remaster. It sounds more lively than the original CD release from the mid eighties and I find myself listening through instead of skipping tracks. Like some have said here it would have been nice to have had a second disc with more remixes (are you listening Cherry Red?) but its sound is an improvement and that's something to be grateful for with the current fashion for the over use of compression. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2010 Edition 16 Nov 2010
By JayJ
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cherry Red (Pop) have unleashed another classic album originally released in 1985. The sound quality of the tracks is excellent, the music content including the remixes and the b-side "Love Games" is brilliant and the detailed discography is an added bonus. The reproduction of the artwork is poor but this is a minor quibble. Cherry Pop should try to secure the rights of other gems from this group like "Between The Lines" and "Rock The World". I'll be first in line if they do.
