5.0 out of 5 stars the girls show how it should be done!, 1 April 2007
This review is from: Deep Sea Skiving [Bonus Tracks] (Audio CD)
the original album was never released on cd at the time..were cds around then! it did get a limited release a couple of times but for along time it has been hard to find!

it a great showcase of early 80s pop! i love it because its what bananarama where all about..great pop tunes that stood the test of time..although vocally not amazing the harmonies are outstanding! it was raw and fresh at the time and not formulated like the albums they did with stock aitken waterman.

the big hits are here "shy boy" "really saying something" "na na na (kiss him goodbye) as well as "cheers then" which flopped - due to being a slow chrstmas feel song and not as chirpy as the previous singles and the first release "aie-a-mwana" which isnt polished but is catchy!

"dr love" is a great pop number which i knew from tracie! - paul youngs pop starlet at the time "young at heart" a cover of the bluebells no.1 hit but which sounds totally different!

although you never venture into celine dion seriousness as any time..every track is perfect pop..its young..its fun and the girls can show girls aloud ect how to do it..and they write a lot of their own songs!

a perfect summer album no matter how old or young you are!

Young at Heart was not a cover. Bananarama wrote the song and The Bluebells covered it (The Nanas made quite a bit of money from it) but of course this truly a great album from one of my favourite groups (although my favourite album is True Confessions)

In theory you're right but in similar cases like the Go gos our lips are sealed written by members of two bands then recorded at different times,credit is given where it is due,Robert Hodgens is credited as a co writer,so in fact although not a cover,it isn't solely a Banarama composition
