Product Description

CD Description

The long awaited reissue of this 1986 #1 smash hit album
by Five Star, one of the leading UK pop bands of the 80's.
This 17 track collection features the 10 tracks of the original
album plus 7 essential bonus tracks.
Five Star were the youngest act to top the album chart with the
million-seller Silk & Steel.
The album peaked at number 1 and contains 6 hit singles, 5 of
them top 10.
This collection features the album and 12" versions of their 6
singles from the "Silk & Steel" album, including their biggest hit
Rain Or Shine #2, Can't Wait Another Minute #7, Find The
Time #7, If I Say Yes #15, Stay Out Of My Life #9 and The
Slightest Touch #4.
Also included as a bonus track is a 12" version of the US single
Are You Man Enough remixed by Shep Pettibone.
The CD booklet will include comprehensive sleeve notes,
including interviews with several writers and producers of the
album, plus a full album discography featuring many of the
band's original single sleeves.
Silk and Steel features remix work by PWL s Phil Harding, who
contributes exclusive commentary about his work on the album
and singles from it.
Five Star were awarded Top British Group in Smash Hits
magazine and at the 1987 Brit Awards.
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.
Their second album, the #1 hit "Silk & Steel" followed in August
1986 and became triple platinum. In the 1980s the band
recorded 21 hit singles, 11 of them top 20, and 4 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 Exactly 5 Star! 18 Feb 2014

The rating matches the act. This adds to the discography of tracks now available on CD that would usually only be available on Vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best groups of the 80s... 7 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
This band have provided fantastic tunes, most of which come from this album. I would have liked to have seen the single version of 'The Slightest Touch' on here, as I feel that it is so much more punchy and synthy.
A great band that still rocks today.
