Product Description

• In 1987, Bananarama continued their chart-conquering collaboration with Stock Aitken Waterman on “WOW!” and generated a string of irresistibly hedonistic hits: I Heard A Rumour, I Can’t help It, I Want You Back, Nathan Jones and their biggest-selling UK smash, Love In The First Degree. It would also prove to be Siobhan’s final album with the group. • 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 mixes. • The DVD features ten promo videos, as well as four BBC TV appearances, all on DVD for the first time ever. The 28-page book contains photos and memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes.

Bananarama's most fun and camp album is reissued here and it's very impressive. There's much more of a good thing, much more of Bruno Tonioli not wearing very much and most importantly lots of rare and unreleased tracks.

The group's first 100% Stock/Aitken/Waterman (more or less) album still sounds as much fun now as it did back then (I still remember buying the vinyl on Oxford Street first time around). Some classic singles are here... "I Heard a Rumour", "I Can't Help It" and most of all the seminal "Love In The First Degree", which must be the best SAW production of them all. The rest of the album has their touch too, though the original album version of "Nathan Jones" has an interesting alternative sound. "Once In A Lifetime", a pretty Siobhan lead vocal ballad is another favourite, a pretty and thoughtful song to end the original LP on. Here though an incredible 19 bonus tracks come after it!

Their forays into the dance market are here in the B sides, including the original and remixed versions of "Mr Sleaze", the former being great fun with more lyrics, almost being a "proper" song. I remember the girls doing this song well on their 1989 tour.

As with all the other Edsel reissues there's a plethora of bonus tracks, some unreleased. "Reason for Living" is my favourite of the lot, being an earlier, pre-rewrite version of "I Want You Back". Same verses but different chorus, it's great to hear this from the studio master. There are other early version of the well knowns too, including a lower-NRG 12" version of "I Heard a Rumour" and another 12" of "Nathan Jones" which is a hybrid of the bass tone album version and the later single release.

We are also treated to a number of other scarce remixes, many on CD for the first time.

This final studio album from the original Bananarama line-up will be a welcome addition to anyone's collection. After their huge success (including a US Billboard #1) with Venus, it seemed inevitable that the group would return to the Stock Aitken Waterman production team in an effort to strike gold again.

And they did. Wow features several seminal Bananarama singles, including Love In The First Degree, I Want You Back and I Can't Help It.

This re-issue includes the original album version of Nathan Jones, featuring Siobhan, and the single version (which was re-recorded with new recruit Jacqui O'Sullivan). It also includes Mr Sleaze, which was listed as a flip-side on the AA-side single release of Love in The First Degree (and credited to Stock Aitken Waterman).

Considering this re-release includes bonus tracks, a disappointing omission is the single Love, Truth & Honesty, which, although admittedly released as part of the Greatest Hits Collection, does tie in with the chronology of singles taken from this album, and would have been a welcome inclusion on an expanded edition of Wow.

Regardless, this is an enjoyably confident pop album, and a glorious last shout from the original line-up. Although there were high points to come, the spirit would never truly be the same again.

Whilst by no means the best Bananarama album this record was defiantley their most fun and a solid consistant pop record light on the ears and fire for the dancefloor.After the mammoth success of their hi nrg campy cover of Shocking Blues classic Venus the band decided to stick with producers Stock Aitken and Waterman for a polished gloss and some pure pop fun.The trio would be divided over this as Siobhan Fahey was clearly more inspired by the depth and artistry of her punk/glam rock/experimental pop sensibilities and would leave the band she helped to co found after over seven years mid way through the records set of single releases but despite a line up change and the addition of Jacqui O Sullivan for the fourth single I Want You Back the consistant success of the singles didn,t end.The record contains the smash hits I Heard A Rumour and Love In The First Degree which are amongst the most famous of all pop/dance hits ever and really put the Nanas on the map internationally.The pure pop fun of the rather sad I Want You Back released as the fourth single and given extra poignancy as Sionhan had left the band.I Cant Help It the last Bananarama single to feaure Siobhans vocal and music video/single sleeve appearance is a sexy dance track which kicks of the record.Also here are the uptempo anthems Bad For Me and Some Girls both of which would have made killer hits[not that they needed it at this time],the love ballad Once In A Lifetime,the bouncy Strike It Rich a song which as legend has it Siobhan objected to so much during recording that she covered her mouth whilst recording to signify her disapproval of the songs lyrics.The mid tempo Come Back and their famous cover of The Supremes classic Nathan Jones remixed and re recorded as the albums fifth single and incorporating Jacquis vocal.Read more ›

Whatever the intentions, this ought to be at least a 3-CD release. Bonus unreleased material is there (and I'm very happy with this) but a lot of stuff is missing here. That said, it's a more than decent re-issue with a decent mastering. The vast number of versions / mixes missing here (due to lack of space I suppose) makes it essential for Edsel to release a collection of at least 2 CDs containing the missing releases from all re-issues ("Love Truth & Honesty" is a considerable loss here - also the 5min single version of "Strike it Rich" on the B-side of the U.S. 7inch never released on CD except in Japan) with some surprises of unreleased goodies from the vaults, maybe? I didn't have second thoughts on buying these re-issues and if we give this whole project a warm welcome, maybe we'll be rewarded with some bonus-es :)
