With platform trainers, combat trousers and Union Jacks on everything, the 1990s may well be seen as the decade that style forgot, but this album shows that pop music was very much alive and well during the period known as 'grunge'. With the indie scene undergoing a shift towards the mainstream with the likes of The Wonderstuff and Chumbawamba, the chart was full of tracks that spanned genres. From the irrepressible high energy of B*Witched and Chesney Hawkes to the intelligent stylings of Tasmin Archer and the Sneaker Pimps, the Nineties was an important period in pop music's history. Let these 3CDs take you back there.

If you invest now you'll get 60 memories for just a fiver....can't be bad ?
if like me you have spent several years covering your 'Vinyl' memories by
collecting as many as you can on the 'CD' format i'd have to say you'll
probably not find many if any rare tracks on board, for me buying this 3-CD
set is all about listening to many favourites presented in a different track
order to other similar CD's already owned......freshens it up I guess.
numbers that caught my eye persuading me to purchase were....on CD 1 .......
The Osmonds....'Crazy Horses' ( my favourite 'Osmond number')---'Suzi Quatro's'
...'Devil Gate Drive'---'Norman Greenbaum's'...'Spirit in the Sky'---'Chicory
Tip'...'Son of my Father' and 'Lieutenant Pigeon'...'Mouldy old Dough' .....
highlighting just a few memories...........on CD 2........'The Rubettes'---
'Sugar Baby Love'---'Kenny's'...'The Bump'---'Tavares'...'More than a Woman'
---'5000 Volts'...I'm on Fire'---'Leo Sayer's'...'When I Need You'---and
'C.W.McCall's'...'Convoy'---again just picking out one or two highlights---
on CD 3....'Buggles'...'Video Killed the Radio Star'---'Lena Lovich'...'Lucky
Numbers'---'Tracy Ullman'...'Breakaway'---'Fern Kinney's'...'Together we are
Beautiful'---'Dan Hill's'...'Sometimes when we Touch'---'Clout'...'Substitute'
---'Meri Wilson's'...'Telephone Man'---and 'Phyliss Nelson's'....'Move Closer'
there are several others worth a mention in truth ....however those I have pin-
pointed give you a flavour of what makes this a cracking buy....fun sounds to
cherish and enjoy.
"Purists might tell you that the golden age of Bubblegum Pop occurred strictly between 1967 and 1972, but in reality its scope was far wider. "
wrong - either it is bubblegum or it isn't. Bubblegum was a very specific genre that lasted from 67 to 69 and was only purveyed in America. Green Tambourine and Quick Joey Small are bubblegum anthems that appear on virtually every proper bubblegum compilation. Neither of these are here any more than the other key tracks are - except Sugar Sugar. So this is 59 light pop tracks, and one bubblegum track. Some pop comps which don't even claim to be bubblegum have more bubblegum than this deceitful rubbish! For a reasonably proper bubblegum compilation buy 25 All Time Greatest Bubblegum Hits [Import] or Vol. 1-Bubblegum Classics or Vol. 2-Bubblegum Classics or Vol. 3-Bubblegum Classics. Or get really groovy and buy all four!
I'm happy to report that the pack delivers, and actually exceeds my expectations, and all tracks seem to be the original recordings, rather than what tends to happen on cheap compilations of "a member of the original band happened to be in the studio when we did this cover version" session albums of yesteryear.
Also, there are a few gems here that rarely appear on compilations, so I now have on CD for the first time.
On the whole, very pleased.
but the opinions above are based on my own musical taste
this review is going to be used for 5 box sets which I feel are all of a similar type
some good old toe tapping tunes
some will make you smile and bring back good memories
and some will make you cringe
but all in all a good range of tunes with something for almost everybody
great for putting on at parties etc.
But really, no complaints, it's a terrific compilation and I'll be annoying my heavy metal neighbours with it a lot, I think!
