Three steps to Heaven

How can you not like Showaddywaddy. They arrived during the seventies and were reviving the late fifties and early sixties which were only about 10 to 15 years earlier.

If showed a poverty of imagination of the the seventies but was still great music as they sung the old rock and roll hits in their crepe brothel creepers and drape suits. Even I am too young to remember the original Teddy boys but their music was very good.

The only track that they do not seem to reproduce on their greatest hits is a great version of Johnny remember Me I used to have very large speakers in the seventies and eighties and played the vinyl record at full pelt and it was great just to demonstrate to anyone who wandered into my house the power of the speakers.

According to Wikipedia the source of all knowledge they have ten top ten singles and their solitary number one being Under the Moon of Love 1976

Their first hit was Hey rock and roll written by the band in 1974. Their last hit was in 1982 Who Put the Bomp.

Great feel good music still to be heard at weddings and anniversaries guarantee to get everyone up on the dance floor.

I saw them a few years ago in Southend and they are still going strong.

Three steps to heaven being a great song in any ones hands. The echoing voice counting out the numbers step one... step two... step three . Pity life wasn't that simple

Great group great songs.

Yes it brought it all back - The Sweet Music, washed down with a Little Bit of Soap. With this CD You Got What It Takes to have a Dancin` Party. Remember Then the Pretty Little Angel Eyes and also When it was a Blue Moon. I wonder why it`s so Heavenly and my Heartbeat goes into Multiplication. Let your Footsteps take you to the PC to order this CD if all this appeals. But you still wont discover Why Do Lovers Break Each Others Heart or Who Put the Bomp in the Bomp-A-Bomp-A-Bomp! Good Luck.

I must admit I bought this as a 'trip down memory lane' purchase and it has proved to be the best possible companion on long car journeys. All the best of the hits and more. Even if you weren't a Showads fan just play this and it will take you instantly back to the late 70's and early 80's. I have to give it 5 stars although if "Hey Mr Christmas" was on there, then it surely could be called the best CD ever. Enjoy...I know you will.

SHOWADDYWADDY' formed in Leicester in 1973 from two groups 'Choise' and 'The Golden Hammer'
The 'Eight' musicians primarily rock/pop were a fun-group that wowed audiences both on-stage and on
the TV screens.
Two lead vocals, two drummers, two guitarists, two bassists, they certainly had all the ingredients in place
to entertain, much of the material they released was revivals from the early days of Rock'n'Roll.
The groups first hit was in 74' was 'Hey Rock and Roll' which charted at number '2' they went on to have
many more including - 'Eddie Cochran's' - 'Three Steps To Heaven' which peaked at number '2' in the U.K
Chart in 1975, this was followed up the same year with 'Buddy Holly's' - 'Heartbeat' again a Top Ten Hit for
the group, the groups only chart-topper was 'Under The Moon of Love' in 1976, a 'Curtis Lee' hit in the early
60's.
This was followed by a couple of lower-order entries however they bounced back with a 'Kalin Twins' number
'When' which peaked at number '3' in 1977, this was followed up with 'You've Got What it Takes' another blast
from the past which charted at number '2' for them, also in 77' - 'Dancing Party' followed the same year, another
Top Ten Hit, peaking at number '4'
This was followed up soon after with a 'Dion and the Belmonts' number - 'I Wonder Why' which charted at number
'2' for them in 1978, in the same year with a revival of the 1961 'Jammels' hit - 'A Little Bit of Soap' this a number '5'
hit for 'Showaddywaddy' also in 1978, the groups final Top Ten success also in 78' was another 'Curtis Lee' track -
'Pretty Little Angel Eyes' which again peaked at number '5' for them.
They did have a couple more Top 20 Hits (on-board) followed by several lower order success up until 1981.
They were primarily a 'Fun-Outfit' of the 70's era who with numerous line-up changes down the years still perform to
this day.
(all the groups major hits are on-board)

Since buying this CD, the housework is no longer a chore, you just have to sing and dance along to the music. It really is the "Very Best". Love it.

Having been a professional guitarist in the 60`s and met most of the then stars, these bring back lots off good memories and delivered within 2 days a good product at a good price

A bit of 70s nostalgia and a great album to boot. Any one who remembers the 70s should enjoy this
