Approx 50 track definitive collection of the very best of Stock Aitken and Watermans collective careers with 2 CDs of their biggest hits and some previously unreleased and highly collectable rarities on CD3.
Top Customer Reviews
Stock, Aitken & Waterman (or SAW as I shall now refer to them) scored initial hits with the likes of Hazell Dean, Sinitta, Divine and Dead Or Alive, along with reviving Bananarama's career. But they really began to hit the big time in 1987 with the arrival of Rick Astley, and Mel & Kim who's first three singles (two of which are included on this set) are prime examples of SAW's best work.
The trio also got one over on the more snobbish club DJ's with the excellent 70's funk pastiche "Roadblock", and who can forget the brilliant "I'd Rather Jack" by the Reynolds Girls. Only a one-hit wonder, but what a hit!
1988 saw Kylie Minogue join the Hit Factory (as SAW's set-up was known) with the mighty "I Should Be So Lucky, a slice of pure pop genius which signalled the start of an extraordinary run of hits for the Kylster. She was later joined by her `Neighbours' co-star Jason Donovan, whilst rubbish groups like Brother Beyond and Big Fun saw some of the SAW magic rub off on them. They also worked with Cliff Richard, Donna Summer and even the much maligned Sigue Sigue Sputnik. There were also a number of charity records for a variety of causes. But 1988 also saw SAW begin to sow the seeds of their own destruction.Read more ›
I'm surprised how easy this collection is to listen to as hit follows hit over the first two CDs; it never annoys or grates, as one delicious confection follows the last. SAW have always had a lot of flack, but their talent for writing a catchy pop/dance song is unquestionable, as is their ability to adapt their relentlessly commercial pop style to different music styles, as on "Say I'm your number one" and "Ferry Cross the Mersey".
Its probably the final CD which makes this collection really outstanding, as rare extended versions of songs heard earlier are given space to shine.
There are quite a few tracks you won't want to hear again which I won't list but I'm sure you'll know which ones (special mention to Pat and Mick!!!)Plus some artists I was surprised had SAW productions (Cliff Richard.)
Recommended for those that like there 80s pop cheesy with a smattering of classics.
The music of Mike Stock, Matt Aitken and Pete Waterman has brought enjoyment to many people and still does today. They are masters of the perfect pop record.
