I'm so chuffed to find this product.
You can get a number of Darts tracks from various online download sites, but I've been looking for one in particular, "Young Blood", for decades.
I bought the first two Darts albums on Vinyl and have been waiting, ever since for them to appear on CD.
This is the next best thing.
I couldn't believe my luck when this one turned out to have "Young Blood" on it.
The Darts played a significant part in my musical upbringing, appearing as they did, a talented bunch of musicians laying down souped up Rock And Roll and Rhythm And Blues in the middle of the "Punk" era..
For me, "Young Blood", with it's unusual chord turns and tight vocal performance stands out.
But there are some other great tracks on here and "Get It" has really grown on me!
I'd hoped for "Late For Work" to appear, but there you go.
For £3.99 and a real blast from the past, I'm not complaining.
Rich.

i have been looking for a darts cd for years.

there have been similar import copies offered on ebay for 60 plus.

this brings back pleasing memories of the late 70's.

i was much happier then and the darts were fantastic.

they have been criminally ignored their songs never appear on the multiple compilation albums from the era.

do yourself a favour and buy this cd!

Buy this cd.Good stuff from a good band.Don't know where the earlier reviewer is getting his information from,but Matchbox and Shakin Stevens (especially with the sunsets) were not regarded as joke bands.Anything but.Both were in the vanguard of the British rockabilly movement.Graham Fenton,the lead singer with Matchbox has a history way back to playing with Gene Vincent.Real rockin cats.

And about time too... Just when you think that Darts were destined to become a dim memory from the end of the '70s along comes this (almost) best of compilation. Clocking in at 58 minutes you get 19 tracks of fabulous Doowop /rock'n'roll . Daddy Cool, Boy from New York City , It's Raining and all the other hits are here with a few album choice album tracks ( and one or two not so choice selections , but there you go ). At £3.33 Amazon price this must be one of the bargains of the year and hopefully if it sells well enough Warners may even be persuaded to put out a 2nd volume with the missing tracks on!

After such a long time off the shelves, Warners have released a new 'Best of' by 'Darts'. It's about time too, as this band remain underated and have often been assigned less than even a footnote in pop history. That's unfair as Darts were the most successful UK live act of 1978 and placed some cracking singles into the Top 40. That's not a bad feat when you consider the mighty power of 'Abba' at that time.
Riding on the coat tails of the 50's revival sound, Darts exploded onto Top of the Pops in late '77. Who could forget Dan Heggarty's manic performance during 'Daddy Cool' which surely sent this single into the Top 10. Magnet records were onto a winner from the word go. Bigger hits to follow in '78 with a fabulous version of 'The Boy From New York City',(what a great performance from Rita...certainly the coolest 'Kitty' that Summer), 'Come Back My Love', and 'It's Raining'. All singles placed in the Top 3. In fact the only letdown was what was seemingly the Christmas single of that year' Don't Let It Fade Away', which failed to make the Top 10.
What this compilation does is showcases the versatility of 'Darts' and how enjoyable and fun they were. Of course their lives shows were often even better. But just as they did in the late 70's, 'everybody can play Darts' AGAIN!!!

On the face of it a pretty good selection of tracks after alot of pressure on the record company. But looking slightly closer and with the title platinum, why wasn't some of the B sides to the singles included instead of the album tracks. 'Early In The Morning, 'How Many Nights' 'Naff Off'. Where is the single 'White Xmas'??? Especially this time of year. Where is the 'unrealised' Frantics Antics material that was still recorded under the Magnet label that Warners bought up? Yes great music, but not very inspired selection to for the platinum collection. Warners good try, but can do better!

Even if you've never heard of the Darts or doowop you'll enjoy this CD. The vocal harmonies are fantastic and musicianship is excellent - anyone with an ear for music will enjoy. One or two tracks could have been changed for better alternatives, as has already been mentioned, but that takes very little away from the overall quality of the collection. We all have our favourite tracks and lets hope the CD generates enough sales to encourage Warners to make further releases!!!

Although this age music is not the usual type of music I buy, I especially wanted a song which I heard on radio recently "Come Back My Love". I was pleasantly surprised to know many other track by these artists,...."Daddy Cool", "It's Raining"' , "The Boy From New York City", "Don't Let It Fade Away", With 5-6 tracks on an album that you know makes this therefore in my eyes good value for money, I therefore recommend this CD, it is easy listening and good value for money.
