Power Station was a 1980s supergroup made up of singer Robert Palmer, bassist John Taylor, guitarist Andy Taylor of Duran Duran, and former Chic drummer Tony Thompson.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'PowerStation' the project 7 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Powerstation project brought together some of the biggest names from this period in 80's pop culture.
the trendy and (well Andy Taylor atleast) talented Duranies, the classic and classy R&B voice of Robert Palmer, the thumping back beat from the excellent Tony Thompson from 'Chic' brilliantly orchestrated by the Brilliant Bernard Edwards.
This album and the DVD (I already have the original vhs version from the time) are must haves for any music collection and still dont sound dated.
The only disapointment would be if a whole new genertion missed out on this one off musical collaboration.
The real tragety comes knowing that only the Durranies (Andy and John) are the only members of this project to survive.
Buy it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic........ 13 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Mix the pure class of Robert Palmer with the tremendous backbeat of Chic drummer Tony Thompson and stir it together with two duranies John & Andy Taylor and you get an LP full of quality upbeat rock/pop tunes.
This album is really alive starting with the blistering "Some Like it Hot" - You have never heard a drum sound like it! Other quality tracks include T-Rex cover "Get it on", the heavy rocker "Murderess", the fantastic drum, synth led "Lonely tonight" and the monster rock/pop of "Communication" - infact there are no dud tracks and its a must for any serious 80's rock/pop collector - I LOVE THIS LP!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars John's Pet Project 22 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
FYI - The Power Station was John Taylor's pet project, not Andy's. Amazon - Please don't use AMG reviews. Stephen Thomas Erlewine (editor) doesn't take the time to do any research - he just makes things up to get as many reviews written as possible. JOHN Taylor (Duran Duran) assembled the ultimate 80's supergroup for the Power Station, and the videos alone on DVD are enough to grab this now. Robert Palmer was recruited for vocals (but later dropped out of the tour) along with Michael DesBarres (who picked up the tour). Former David Bowie drummer Tony Thompson is a powerhouse on drums. Andy Taylor was getting flighty by this point (esp. with Duran) but provides great funk guitar and rock-heavy amazing riffs. Ultimately though, John Taylor gets credit for this album - he recruited everyone and wrote the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it on! 14 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
Yes its a collaboration between many people. This album was an attempt to make a good, rock solid album which can be played as loud as you like with no pretence and gutsy reach out and touch it production. Palmers vocals are som of his best and drums by yes Chic drummer tony thompson - used by bowie on an album produced by chics very own Nile Rogers, just for the record as it were. This album was produced by bernard edwards also from Chic who played bass on the bowie album (lets dance). If you liked the lets dance classic you may well like this as it features some good honest songs, great musicians and lavish production. For the record 10 times better than arcadia. Buy it and annoy your neighbours!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, and bad 13 May 2014
By g cox
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Owned this album when it was originally released and was looking forward to hearing it again. All of the original tracks were as good as i remember. However all of the remix tracks are endless and dreary. Get it as the original if you can
