5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent release, 11 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Screaming Blue Murder (Audio CD)
This 2004 release is a remastered-and-expanded edition of Girlschool's third album, originally released in 1982. Enid Williams, co-writer, bassist and one of the vocalists, had recently left (of her own volition)and Gil Weston was in. On the headlining tour supporting the album, Girlschool's standing was such that they could now play London's prestigious Hammersmith Odeon and similar UK venues: arguably, it was the band's high-water mark in commercial terms.

Contrary to what some online retail sites are saying, this is NOT the first time on CD for the album, as it was on a now-deleted 2-on-1 CD, coupled with 'Play Dirty'. However, this new release is the one to have. As well as the ten album tracks we get a B-side ('Don't Stop'), which has previously been available on CD, and ten tracks recorded for BBC Radio's 'In Concert' programme, which get their first release here. Girlschool then, as now, are a terrific live act and this BBC recording is a welcome addition to my collection. The studio album I rate as 4-stars, as it doesn't, for me, as often hit the highs of the first two albums. However, the bonus tracks turn this particular release into a 5-star effort. If you own the previous CD release, I would suggest replacing/ upgrading it.
