'MANY EIGHTIES FAVOURITES ON-BOARD'
on 5 November 2013
As with most compilations of this type, there always will be many favourite
artists and or favourite songs missing, however this 3-CD set is to my mind
a fair reflection of the music-style of the 80's era.
I will just list one or two numbers from each disc that persuaded me to purchase
the item, ....on disc one...'Visage' --'Fade to Grey'...'Ultravox' --'Hymn'...
'Cyndi Lauper' --'Girls just wanna have Fun'...'Tears for Fear's' --'Mad World'
...'The Style Council' --'The ever changing Moods'...'Fun Boy Three & Bananarama'
--'It ain't what you do it's the way that you do It'... and 'Orchestral Monoeuvres
in the Dark' --'Souvenir' .....just a few tracks that caught my eye....on disc
Two....'Blondie' --'Atomic'...'Culture Club' --'Do you really want to Hurt Me'
...'Billy Idol' --'White Wedding'...'Wham' --'Young Guns' (go for it)...'Bow Wow
Wow' --'Go Wild in the Country'... and 'Frankie goes to Hollywood' ...again just
one or two of the many good sounds on disc two....on the third disc...'Philip
Oakey' and 'Giorgio Moroder' --'Together in Electric Dreams'...'Bronski Beat'
--'Smalltown Boy' ('Jimmy Somerville' also had hits with the 'Communards' and
as a solo artist)...''Nik Kershaw' --'Wouldn't it be Good'...'Yazoo' --'Nobody's
Diary'...'Kim Wilde' --'Kids in America' ('Kim Wilde' daughter of late 50's/early
60's Rock-legend 'Marty Wilde' had a world-wide hit with this her first single,
reaching number '2' in the 'UK' and '29' in the 'US' top 100, along with hitting
the charts in many other country's)...'Big Country' --'In a big Country'...and
one of my all time favourite numbers...'The Cars' --'Drive'
just one or two of the numbers that drew me in, sadly as an earlier reviewer
pointed out there are several tracks on board that to hear them as you would
wish too, you do have to turn up the volume some....which of course shouldn't
be the case.
Overall, a good selection of sounds that reflect the music of the era.
