Fantastic to finally see the original recordings of the much underrated Modern Romance make it to CD. Congratulations to Alan Connor and all those involved in making the project happen. The early Mod Rom were funky and funny in equal measure - Geoff Deane couldn't really sing as such but his proto-rapping was great, particularly on the awesome Queen Of The Rapping Scene - delightfully included here in all its 12" glory.

For the record it would have been great to have the 7" version of Queen Of The Rapping Scene as well and the 12" Ay Ay Ay Ay Moosey/Moose On The Loose floorfiller.

Oh, and where's Geoff Deane on the album cover???? Docked 1 star...

I was aged 9 in early 1983, when, with a voucher I had received for Xmas, I bought the partial compilation vinyl LP , Modern Romance "Party Tonight" from Woolies. I bought Tizer sweets out of the Pick n Nick to make up the difference. It being a voucher, I could not have any change:-). I found said LP today in my Mum's cupboard. Smooth. well-kept vinyl, a testimony to how well I looked after these 12 inch treasures, in a sleeve deliberately as white as Michael Mullins' flying suit ( down girl!) on TOTP. "Ronco- As Seen on TV" heheheheh.

In my teens and 20s, it was easy for me to dismiss M.R. as pop tinsel for nice wee children like me who did their homework and watched Crackerjack or for gits attending yuppie yacht parties. Tellingly, when I was surviving later adulthood rigours, and I still had a record player, Party Tonight would often get taken for a "mischievous" spin after one too many brandies and Nesquick. "In vino veritas" as the Romans might say. I started listening to this stuff again about a fortnight ago quite accidentally (yes it was always a "recent accident" when you listened to M.R .again) after a chance remark (there I go again) on Facetube. To my now 38 year old ears, it all seemed..well.... brilliant and erm very skilled and erm wasn't David Jaymes' bass on Don't Stop That Crazy Rythmn to die for? There was no other trumpeter as brilliant as John Du Prez and well, what a voice that was that came from the amiably relaxed dark eyed adonis that was Michael (now Mick) Mullins. The album fairly showcases the volcanic presence of original lead vocalist Geoff Deane in an approximate chronological order. All the edgy gusto of a senior holiday rep looking for a big break.

Bought this as I had the original album, so decided to download the mp3. Good memories have been brought back of the happy up-beat music. Especially as one of the guys I met at a christening, that was before he joined the group, lovely chap, so glad he did well. Always a good album to have at a party!

I have been trying to track down CD of this 80s favourite after the sad demise of my Adventures in Clubland tape. This was a favourite of 3 generations of my family. Real foot-tapping, happy music!!!
I have just played a couple of tracks to my young work colleagues....had them dancing in the car park!!!! They all agreed that 'Best Years of Our Lives' is possibly the happiest music ever released!!

I bought this because I can do my Zumba moves to it..... I seem to have missed Modern Romance when they first started out and am thrilled to have discovered them. Love their music. Absolutely great !!
