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. Bernard Edwards, also of Chic, was involved on the studio side as recording producer. For a short time he also functioned as Power Station's manager.

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 !

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!!!

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.

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!

The Power Station - 2 members of Duran Duran on a gap year (in the case of Andy Taylor, never to return until 2001), the late Tony Thompson (fantastic drummer from Chic) and the late, great Robert Palmer. Together, along with Bernard Edwards (Chic) producing, they came up with this classic recording. Very 1985 in places but it still rocks. The only disappointing track is 'Still in Your Heart', which doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the album. Their second album was nothing in comparison to this. If you want to hear what the remainder of Duran Duran did on their gap year, check out 'So Red the Rose' by Arcadia - another classic, although very different in style to this.

I originally bought this upon it's release - and my vinyl copy still gets a regular run on my turntable. I recently bought the CD release as a present for my friend Penny and I'm pleased to say she enjoys it as well.

Whilst in all honestly this record is a rather motley collection of songs - they work surprisingly well together; there are no real duffers. This is entirely down to the assembled cast (including production crew) and their sterling musicianship throughout - a very well put together record indeed. Dare I suggest the best supergroup record ever - well maybe.

If you're a forty something curmudgeon who enjoys the occasional trip to the 80s then this makes a mighty fine travelling companion. Recommended
