4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy yourself, 17 Feb. 2010
This review is from: You're Wondering Now (Paperback)
Having found an old copy of this author's previous book on this top band in a local library I was looking forward to the update. Forget HMV or Waterstones "Are you sure there's a book out?" get it from Amazon!

This book brings back loads of memories Manchester Apollo, drawing Walt Jabsco on my english folder,dancing in front of the stalls along to a showing of 'Dance Craze' at the Odeon in Manchester, recording the rock goes to college gig on cassette and playing it constantly.

This a well researched, informative account of the hey day of the band and also the 'wilderness years' for the group members; for some more creative than others before the reunion. What I find impressive is how Paul Williams contextualises the social, political history that was happening at the time- I remember the riots- and how the music of the band reflected this.

The only other thing I would have liked would have been a list of tv appearances and how many gigs were filmed for 'Dance Craze'? Where's the footage now? Quibbles aside I recommend this book wholeheartedly!

Dance Craze was never given a DVD release, there are bootlegs on DVD if you go look around
