Product Description

Product Description

Quintessential British girl group Bananarama’s first single “Aie A Mwana” was produced ex-Sex Pistol Paul Cook and released on Demon Records in 1981, but the trio only came to the pop world’s attention when they guested on the Fun Boy Three’s second hit “It Ain’t What You Do…” in February 1982. They signed to Decca and hit the Top 5 immediately with “Really Saying Something” (on which the Fun Boy Three guested). Two more Top 5 singles followed in “Shy Boy” and “Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)” along with the self-penned “Cheers Then”. The ensuing album including writing and production contributions from Paul Weller, Jolley & Swain (hired because of their recent work on Imagination’s hits), and hit producer/ writer Barry Blue. The album also featured the first recording of “Young At Heart”, a year before The Bluebells’ hit version. Remastered from the original studio tapes, this Deluxe 2 CD + DVD casebound book edition, expertly compiled and annotated by acknowledged expert Tom Parker, features twenty-five bonus tracks! Aside from the non-album B-sides, and amongst the many mixes, are versions only released in released in Canada, Spain and Japan. Also included are two versions of the Sex Pistols’ “No Feelings” (one previously unreleased), originally exclusive to the “Party Party” soundtrack. The DVD features all four promo videos (two of them directed by Midge Ure), as well as four BBC TV appearances, all on DVD for the first time ever. The 28-page book contains photos and memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes.

The first thing I have to comment on is the quality of this reissue. It is absolutely stunning on all accounts. The hardbound book-like packaging is beautiful and thorough. Yes, the envelopes that hold the discs are not the best but I haven't had much problem with them. The remastering is surprisingly great. I had read an interview with the reissue producer and mastering engineer Tom Parker, and was concerned when he made a comment about the sound being mastered with the iPod generation in mind, though he managed wonderfully to provide louder volume while retaining much of the dynamic range. He should be given a medal. Another fear was unrealized when it turns out the entire set was remastered from original studio master tapes with no shoddy vinyl transfers to be found. Add to that, all of the transfers are beautiful. I don't hear any tape degradation at all. Just full, rich sound. The book contains scans of record sleeves and labels, including international releases. And with a DVD of all of the music videos, as well as a few TV appearances, this set encompasses just about anything anyone could ask for in a deluxe edition.

Now to the music. Bananarama are generally known for their more dancefloor oriented music, but this debut album shows them being a wonderful addition to the colorful character of the New Wave genre. The songs are often catchy or downright infectious. All of the singles from the album ('Shy Boy', 'Cheers Then', 'Really Saying Something', Aie A Mwana', 'Na Na Hey Hey') are still enjoyable 30 years later, while 'Young At Heart' has to be one of the catchiest songs ever written, and is my favorite on the album. The B sides expand the enjoyment with the equally catchy 'Girl About Town' and 'Tell Tale Signs'. The cover of the Sex Pistols' 'No Feelings' is hilariously bouncy.

There's no denying that the Deluxe 2CD + DVD Edition of 'Deep Sea Skiving' is a work of art to thumb through, as well as being a comprehensive collection of early Bananarama material. It's not a very practical design and is, in fact, so fiddly to deal with that I feel justified in sharing with it some of the bluer words that dwell up there in my vocabulary. But it looks nice.

Mind you, I do have my reservations about that cover photo. You'd never guess that these girls were fans of punk rock, would you? It says an awful lot about the fabulous Siobhan that she can still look alluring, even while suspended in mid-air and modelling a Gandalf hat. Poor old Keren looks as though she has used so much hairspray that her entire head is now unable to move and, as for Sara - she wears the sort of relentlessly cheerful expression that is usually the preserve of presenters on QVC. She's obviously got a job-lot of plastic lobsters that need shifting. I missed out on the original 'Deep Sea Skiving' album in 1983, on account of the fact that I had yet to be seized by the hormones. That is to say, I had not yet come to appreciate the unique talents of Sara, Keren and (most especially) Siobhan. Well, not their musical talents anyway. So I was very keen indeed to get my hands on this Deluxe Edition.

It is, literally, an embarrassment of riches. But, unfortunately in my case, they are not the sort of riches that can really grab my attention. As far as these very earliest Bananarama songs are concerned, the ones that are really worthy of note all escaped from their master-tape years ago and have been available as the central component of, much cheaper, Greatest Hits compilations for yonks.

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!

Deep Sea Skiving was the ram's first long-player, a grungy sounding pop album that introuced the world to Keren, Sara, and Siobhan, and their odd layered vocal sound.

The album kicks off with the incredibly catchy and sexy Shy Boy, a gorgeous song full off "Shoop-shoop-ahhs", and is the girls at their flirtatious best. Doctor Love, although initially fun, gets boring very quickly, and is a good contender for worst song on the album, and I'm not sure whether its position as 2nd track on the album was a good idea. What a Shambles is lyrically my favourite track on the album, whats not to love in a song that's chorus revolves around "Washing all your Laundry, and Riding on a Bus" . Next up is the Fun Boy Three collaboration Really Saying Something, this is the 'rams at their dirtiest and grubbiest, there's not much I can say about this song, as its one of their big iconic tracks, unfortunately, the 'rams other FB3 collaboration - It Aint What You Do doesn't make an appearance here, very dissapointingly even the remastered release fails to include it as a bonus track. Cheers Then is the most melancholy track on the album, but it is also one of the stronger tracks, as the girls lament on a relationship that has come to an end. We are then presented with Aie-a-Mwana, quite simply put, an insane Swahili dance number! Its a great, fun, track, but sticks out on the album like a sore thumb. Especially odd as the aforementioned omition of It Aint What You Do, which would have been much more at home on the album. Keeping the tone firmly upbeat, the 'rams then sing about being Young at Heart, a feel good song that bounces along, and would later see widespread success when The Bluebells covered it.
