Product Description

In the second half of the 1980s, Five Star lit up the UK pop charts with a slew of memorable pop-soul hits, including the Top 10 smashes ‘System Addict,’ ‘Rain & Shine,’ and ‘The Slightest Touch.’ Originally from Romford, the group -all members of the Pearson family and who modelled themselves on the Jackson Five -racked up a jaw-dropping twenty-one UK chart entries as well as a chart-topping album. This comprehensive new retrospective includes all of their charting singles as well as key album tracks and collectable 12-inch mixes.

Five Star - The Collection (2013)

This Demon 2CD release compiles a lot of key songs by Five Star. A comprehensive collection, but instead of the Hit Mix I'd rather wanted another 12" version that didn't make the Cherry Red album reissues or the Remix Anthology.
Most singles are present here in its single version, a few of them unfortunately are the album versions. Guess you can't have it all.

Here's the full track listing and the timings. No additional track information means: album version.

CD 1
01. System Addict 4:03
02. Rain Or Shine 4:00
03. The Slightest Touch (Shep Pettibone 7" Remix) 4:21
04. Find The Time (Single Version) 3:56
05. Can't Wait Another Minute 4:31
06. If I Say Yes (Lew Hahn 7" Remix) 3:41
07. Let Me Be The One 4:41
08. Love Take Over 3:55
09. Are You Man Enough? 4:39
10. Someone's In Love 4:22
11. Another Weekend (Single Version) 4:08
12. Crazy 3:58
13. R.S.V.P. (M&M 7" Remix) 3:26
14. All Fall Down 3:32
15. Knock Twice 4:11
16. Winning 3:35
17. Somewhere Somebody 4:13
18. Hot Love 3:17
19. Ain't Watcha Do 3:29
20. There's A Brand New World 3:42

A few additional comments on CD 1:
* Rain Or Shine doesn't contain the 2 seconds `fairy tale' intro as released on the original 7", neither does the Cherry Red `Silk & Steel' 2010 reissue (but that CD of course contains the album version, so it shouldn't).
* In the UK the 7" of Can't Wait Another Minute was released as a single edit (4:11). This compilation offers you the album version, but with a slightly faster fade out.
* In the UK the 7" of Let Me Be The One was released as an edit (3:40).

An absolute great collection of tracks from Five Star . All the big hits included here, with some rarer tracks and superb extended and remix versions too. A great value double CD set to take you back to the best of the 80's. Can't wait another minute sounds as good now as it did back then, and Rain or Shine remains a classic among classics. Five stars for Five Star !

A group that deserves more credits and respect than they actually get. This compilation serves to remind us the potential that this group had.

It was as good as I thought it would be, thank you Amazon, it is a pity that FIVE STAR have stopped recording, they were a very good group, their style was unique, I am sure that thousands of fans were very surprised when they stopped making C/Ds'

All the greatest hits plus more from the debut album. A must for any pop fan aged 40/45 years of age. This has gotta be a 5star rating.
