5.0 out of 5 stars The very best of the "Greatest Hits" CDs available for SWW, 24 Jan. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Hey! Rock 'n' Roll: The Very Best of Showaddywaddy (Audio CD)
This collection was released in November 2004 and spent 10 weeks in the charts over Christmas & New Year 2004 / 2005...and has sold around 100,000 copies to date according to the band's official website: [...]
It's the most comprehensive collection on a single CD of the band's singles released between 1974 and 1982, and only misses out five: "Take Me In Your Arms" (1976), "Doo Wah Diddy" (1980), "Good Timing" (1982), "Goody Goody" (1982), "(You're My) Soul & Inspiration" (1983).
None of these were chart hits, and only Soul & Inspiration is truly indispensable, but you can get this on "Living Legends" or "The Arista Singles Vol.2" anyway. Anyone wanting to get a complete overview of the band's chart story should check out all three 7Ts CD collections:
"The Bell Singles 1974-76" / "The Arista Singles Vol.1" / "The Arista Singles Vol.2 plus..." which are great value and feature EVERY A-side and B-side recorded up to 1983.
Releases after 1983 were sporadic and the only 3 singles released were as follows: Under The Moon of Love (1986 remix) / Why? (1987) / Rockin' & Rollin' With Santa Claus (1990)
The new track on this CD "Whoo Hoo" is an instrumental, and is good but it would have been even better to have some previously unreleased SWW recordings such as "Old Habits Die Hard", "Dot Dot Dot" etc. or a DVD of promo videos instead.
Maybe we'll see this happen on future releases - until then this is a great collection to pop into the car CD player and simply enjoy.

I wrote this review, and I'd like to point out that it has now been moved to the WRONG album!! It was originally a review of the 2004 Greatest Hits (DMGTV 011) compilation which featured the brand new instrumental track Woo Hoo...well done Amazon! Steve Thorpe
