Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you're new to Girlschool, this album may be a great way to sample their wares before moving on to their other great and now abundant catalogue. Over these two particular albums, they continue, as they always have done, to play their own material whilst adding a few 'standards' in for good measure. Here, they plumped for The Sweet's 'Fox On The Run' and Mud's 'Tiger Feet,' whilst Motorhead's Lemmy jotted down the lyrics for the 'Head Over Heels' track.
There are no disappointing tracks here, as ever, Girlschool deliver exactly as their longstanding reputation herald's them, with track after track of top-notch female rock 'n' roll!
The CD booklet is a joy in as much as for this reissue the press cuttings and 10" x 8"'s from the times of release have been begged, borrowed or stolen to make this a top-notch re-issue of two of their classic albums.

For those of you that don't know Girlschool it's time for some much needed education. Anyone who thinks that all girl or female fronted bands are better at the rousing, fun rock n' roll business than their male counterparts have got a very persuading argument with these 20 songs fom two mid-eighties albums on one disc. Heavy, catchy and just a hell of a lot of fun these albums saw the girls get back to what they are good at after the American slickness of the "Running Wild" record with the drums and bass back to the fore and no sign of the 80's keyboards that that blighted said album. Although covers of "Fox on the Run" by the Sweet and "Tiger Feet" by Mud (although the CD booklet mistakenly credits it to the girls) are familiar and well tackled, originals like "All Day All Night", "Play With Fire" and You Got Me" are just as strong. Old mucker Lemmy helps out on "Head Over Heels"on the later album which is the more polished of the two, and throughout it's obvious where groups like The Donnas got their sound from. So if you like Veruca Salt, Suzi Quattro, The Pretty Reckless, The Runaways, Halestorm or any other rockin' ladies this is an essential purchase. And it's not even close to being their best work!

Sounds every bit as good as I remember.... 25 Sept. 2008
By Jonathan Donald - Published on
Have you looked for a Girlschool CD at your local retail store lately? GOOD LUCK! Grab these hard-to-find classic albums if you like fun, high energy 80's metal. You can't take this stuff too seriously, it is played light-hearted, with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and is just plain cheesy in places. Still, it has a driving party beat that you just can't find anymore, and I love both of these albums. If you are more of a NWoBHM fanatic you will probably think this is commercial glam garbage and you would be better off buying the Demolition album or Hit and Run (iTunes has it). Nightmare at maple cross and Take a bite usually don't get favorable reviews because most fans preferred the more classic Girlschool sound. I just say those poor suckers don't know how to relax and have a good time. Thanks to whoever was responsible for getting this released for mp3 download. Buy it, crank it, and keep Kelly Johnson's spirit alive forever. Girls rock.

BTW, the song "I'm the leader of the gang" that appeared on cassette copies can be downloaded off of the 'Very Best of Girlschool' Greatest Hits collection for 99 cents. Since you saved a couple bucks over the iTunes price go ahead and get that one too and your classic album will be complete.
Excellent 'Double" CD 19 April 2014
By G. Gustafson - Published on
I was given a copy of 'Take A Bite" back in the early 90s. I thought it was a great cd. These albums kind of go back to the original sound of Girlschool, but with a little more experienced sound and a little better song writing. I bought this compilation after hearing that 'Nightmare At Maple Cross" had a very similar sound to "Take A Bite.' As much as I liked "Take A Bite," I think NAMC is actually a better album. There is not one filler song on this album and and the production is excellent. Kim McAuliffe has all the vocals on these two albums and sounds great. Cris Bonacci (who I still can't believe is not a household name!) sounds awesome as ever. This is a good, "fun" album to listen to. Especially liked 'Danger Sign," "Tiger Feet," and "Back For More." I would compare the sound of this album to some of Aerosmith's better work. The songs all have a good beat, are actually danceable and great to take to the gym on your IPod! I would say this compilation is just good, fun. rock and roll! Wish I had bought it sooner!

No Leader? 30 Mar. 2008
By Polecat - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I love the Nightmare At Maplecross album. I have the cassette version and it contains the old Gary Glitter classic-Leader Of The Gang- which is not present here. This song comes after Tiger Feet and Gary himself lends his vocals to it. That is why I only give this cd 3 stars.
