Wonderful addition to a Nolans collection
on 3 December 2013
Wonderful release from Cherry Red records (having also released other Nolans LPs on CD).
As another review points out, '20 Giant Hits' has been available quite readily over the years, with different sleeves, and a very slight change to the content, so if you're a Nolans fan, old or new, looking for the original release, this is the one to buy - even has the original front sleeve!
CD2 is a wonderful bonus if you've always struggled to find their earlier material. I'm lucky enough to have all their Target Records material on vinyl anyway, but it's great to have it on CD (other than having put it onto CD myself a few years ago!!). The songs on this 2nd CD were released as the album 'Harmony' back in the early 80s, which can be difficult to find nowadays. I remember literally jumping up and down with excitement, at the age of 12, finding the Harmony LP in Littlewoods in Dundee - had never seen it before...didn't even know it existed!! There was also the self-titled LP on the Nevis label (which was a reworking of the original 'Singing Nolans' album!)...but I could only afford to buy one, so I chose 'Harmony', because it was the one with the picture sleeve!! I loved it! 'Won't You Make a Little Sunshine Shine' is probably the best song from that period; 'Back In The World Again' is wonderfully haunting .....30 years on, I'm still wondering what it's about!!!!
Buy it...you won't be disappointed
