5.0 out of 5 stars Music is not like this anymore = pure and enjoyable
1974 was such an important year for music. It was when the 'Glam' toned down and groups started to really record great music. "Hey Rock And Roll" and "Rock'n'Roll Lady" probably show this group at its very best - raw, great writing, and having fun. Whilst commercially, Showaddywaddy gained more from the Arista years (from 1977) that followed the 'Bell'...

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful as far as it goes
This was a bit of nostalgia for me and I did love hearing the old hits again, particularly Under the Moon of Love and Three Steps to Heaven. However, there were a few tracks I didn't recognise at all and some (Dancin' Party, When, for example) that I missed. This is a great CD, but I think the greatest hits album is better for the pure nostalgia seeker. There's not much...

1974 was such an important year for music. It was when the 'Glam' toned down and groups started to really record great music. "Hey Rock And Roll" and "Rock'n'Roll Lady" probably show this group at its very best - raw, great writing, and having fun. Whilst commercially, Showaddywaddy gained more from the Arista years (from 1977) that followed the 'Bell' era, let's not forget that Showaddywaddy were at the top of the tree for many reasons - teddy boys, jiving, big groups, musicians, and above all entertainment. Whilst being 70s, they could stand shoulder to shoulder with Mud, Rubettes, Slade, Glitter Band, and all those great 70s acts by virtue of actually producing a different kind of music to the others. Remember that Mud recorded "Oh Boy" in 1975, which surely must have been influenced by the teddy boy-old song revival/looks so right by Showaddywaddy. Got for it.
