Product Description

This compilation features an overview of the bands career containing tracks new to CD, exclusive artwork by founding member Paul Bevoir and an essay on the band s career.

The Jetset were a 1980s English pop band, who were associated with the British Mod Revival.
Formed in 1979 by teenage friends Paul Bevoir and Melvyn J Taub, the band developed their
style under the guidance of former Advertising and Secret Affair drummer, Paul Bultitude.
After recording a few demos with Bultitude, Bevoir and Taub pulled together a makeshift
band for promotional photos, enlisting keyboardist Angus Nanan and bassist Paul Bonin.
Gaining valuable live experience as a touring support act to Secret Affair in 1981 and 1982,
through their connection with Bultitude, Bevoir and Taub temporarily joined Mari Wilson s
Wilsations as backing vocalists in 1981. Bevoir soon left to focus on his own music, while Taub
went on to enjoy chart success with the Wilsations, before returning to work with Bevoir in
The Jetset.
There Goes the Neighborhood , their first full-length album was released in 1985. The
album was well reviewed in the UK music press and it was followed by Go Bananas, an album
which featured commercials for Jetset products between songs. Bevoir retired from touring
to concentrate on his songwriting and together with Bultitude created the lushly orchestrated
Vaudeville Park.

This is Pure POP for Modern people! The Jetset are an essential listen for anyone who was a fan of the 70's and 80's Mod revival as well as anyone who loves GREAT POP music inspired by the 50's and 60's but very much of it's time in the 80's and timeless in that it is still great to listen to them today.

The Jetset influenced so many other bands that a few years ago, Twist Records released a tribute that paid homage to their lasting inspiration (called "Do You Wanna Be In The Show? - A Pop Tribute To The Jetset"). You can't go wrong with this 2 disc colection which gathers many of their gems in one place.

The Jetset arose out of the ashes of the Mod Revival scene of the late 70's to mid 80's and obviously based themselves more than a little on The Monkees and this is no bad thing...Listen to the songs especially disc 1 and you wonder why they did not make the crossover into the pop charts...

too much teenypopper singalong but some of the tracks are quiet cheerful. Great summer music to drive along in a convertible car. On the other hand ... after just a couple of songs I was done with it. It all sounds pretty much the same. Nevertheless for collector's of 60s soundalikes and music lovers that like The Rutles - go a head and get it, it only costs a few dollars.
