4.0 out of 5 stars Finally - the original recordings on CD, 23 Aug 2006
This review is from: Dollar - Platinum Collection (Audio CD)
Finally. After all these years. For the first time on CD: the original Dollar recordings from their early 80's WEA period. I never got around to buying a Dollar album back then, but I do remember hearing them on BFBS and humming their tunes. "Hand Held In Black And White", "Give Me Back My Heart", Mirror Mirror" and "Videotheque" were the Trevor Horn produced hits - irresisitible. "The Second Time Around" is another wonderful song, self-penned by the pretty Thereza Bazar and the cute David Van Day. (These songs - as well as "Give Me Some Kind Of Magic" were included on their third album, called "The Dollar Album".)

Some of the earlier songs such as "Radio" or "The Girls Are Out To Get Ya" are, admittedly, a little less convincing, not only production-wise, but especially when you listen to David's vocals on these tracks and then skip to "The Second Time Around" and see how much he had matured within a year or two. All in all, it's wonderful to be able to hear those long-lost tracks again, and we may be hopeful that Warner might release "The Dollar Album" in its entirety on CD after all.
