A Good Alternative To The Usual Greatest Hits Package
on 29 July 2014
If you are looking for something more than the usual Greatest Hits package then this collection of remixes and extended versions of some of Bucks Fizz's best loved album tracks offers a refreshing change that showcases the versatility of this talented foursome.
With an emphasis on some of the group’s later recordings (in particular those culled from their superb ‘I Hear Talk‘ album), the songs have a slightly rockier, less poppy, feel. More ‘ When We Were Young’ than ‘ Making Your Mind Up’.
This formula works particularly well on tracks such as ‘Oh Suzanne’ and ‘Invisible’ – both of which feature the girls on lead vocals and in my opinion would have made great singles back in the day.
If I’m honest I could live without the inevitable Hits Medley and ‘Land Of Make Believe’ Remix but welcome the inclusion of their take on Cher’s ‘ Heart Of Stone’ (which was actually a minor chart success for the group before she got her hands on it) featuring Cheryl Baker instead of fellow member Bobby G.
So in short, a pretty decent collection that’s nicely packaged as usual by Cherry Pop.
