In 1986, “True Confessions” marked a turning point for Bananarama, with the group’s most sophisticated songwriting to date, their final work with producers Jolley & Swain and their first chart-topping collaboration with Stock Aitken Waterman – an unforgettable version of “Venus”. Also featured are further hit singles “Do Not Disturb”, “More Than Physical” and “A Trick Of The Night”. Remastered from the original studio tapes, this Deluxe 2 CD + DVD casebound book edition, expertly compiled and annotated by acknowledged expert Tom Parker, features nineteen bonus tracks! Aside from the non-album B-sides, and the many mixes, are four previously unreleased tracks: two previously unreleased songs (“Too Much Of A Good Thing” and “Vicious Circle”) and two previously unreleased Shep Pettibone mixes. Recorded with Daryl Hall, “Riskin’ A Romance” was originally exclusive to the soundtrack of the film “The Secret Of My Success” The DVD features six promo videos, as well as two BBC TV appearances and a documentary about making the UK video for ‘A Trick Of The Night’, all on DVD for the first time ever. The 28-page book contains photos and memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes.

The classic 11-track album sounds wonderful with the spit and polish given to it here. This is probably Bananarama's most interesting collection of songs, many with a rather melancholic, even downbeat edge. They explored soulful sounds here and of course famously tried out Stock/Aitken/Waterman for size on two tracks, the start of something big.
CD1 brings us the classic album, the B-sides we'd expect, "Riskin' a Romance" from "The Secret of My Success" and of interest to fans two unreleased songs; "Vicious Circle" and "Too Much of a Good Thing". According to the extensive liner notes these were cut from the final edition of the album when the two Stock/Aitken/Waterman songs were included, never to see the light of day until now. They're weaker than the final album tracks, which is perhaps why Keren and Sara are unhappy with their release. They fit in with the rest of the album perfectly however and fans the world over will be delighted to hear these straight from the studio master. "Vicious Circle" is for me the better of the two, the melody in the verses recalling "Ready or Not" and "Promised Land", and like those being better than the chorus.
CD2 brings us so many remixes, some familiar, some less so. The highlight has to be the Shep Pettibone/Bruce Forrest remixes of "Ready or Not", betraying that song's status as a possible single. They don't match the nostalgic magic of the original, but are must haves for fans. They even include an early version of "Venus" which was infamously once released in error as an obscure B-side.Read more ›
The DVD is excellent although the making of Trick Of The Night is very dated and doesn't show the group in the best light
The smash hit Venus sits uncomfortably on this album due to the use of SAW production. The extra tracks on this deluxe edition would excite all Nana fans.
