      A good CD but lost some marks for lack of thought - 40th anniversary tour this year

      Hey Rock N' Roll The Very Best Of Showaddywaddy -
      For those die hard Showaddywaddy fans this is the 40th anniversay tour, this all began in 1973, the group were runners up in the New Faces "All Winners Final" in 1973
      This complitation was released in 2009 and is a 2 disc CD set, the songs include top 1o top 10 hits of which five of them made it to the top 5.
      The group originally started as an 8 piece group, but is now a 6 peice group/
      =The Songs=
      In general the songs were all upbeat, rock and roll, where the group brought the 1950s and 1960s into the 1970s and beyond, they were know for wearing their teddy boys suits, all with dark shirt.

      Disc: 1
      1. Under The Moon Of Love
      2. Three Steps To Heaven
      3. Heartbeat
      4. Hey Rock And Roll
      5. Rock 'N' Roll Lady
      6. A Night At Daddy Gee's
      7. Remember Then
      8. I Wonder Why
      9. Pretty Little Angel Eyes
      10. Why Do Lovers Break Each Other's
      11. Hearts?
      12. Who Put The Bomp (In The...) #37
      13. Trocadero
      14. Dancin' Party
      15. You Got What It Takes
      16. Heavenly
      17. Blue Moon
      18. Sweet Music
      19. When



      From Disc One, I would say my absolute favourite is Hey Rock and Roll, its lively, and this sounds mad, but when my daughter was a baby where other children would be soothed with nursery songs, no not her it had to be Hey Rock and Roll.

      My second favourite is Blue Moon, as this is still rock and roll, but a soft rock, bordering a love song.

      Overall I felt that Disc one has more of the A side songs of the record, with a few B sides that were well known,
      Disc: 2
      1. A Little Bit Of Soap
      2. Footsteps
      3. Multiplication
      4. Sweet Little Rock 'N'} Roller
      5. Hey Mr Christmas
      6. 2-4-6-8 Motorway
      7. Hey Girl Don't Bother Me
      8. Jungle Rock
      9. Spanish Stroll
      10. Old Habits Die Hard
      11. You Will Lose Your Love Tomorrow
      12. Don't Turn Your Back On Me Baby
      13. Everybody On Your Feet
      14. Take Me In Your Arms
      15. Personality
      16. Swansong
      17. Sea Cruise
      18. I Wanna Take You Home

      With Disc 2, this has some disappointing elements to me, as I feel that with some of the songs, that these have just been put into make the numbers up, the quailty is not there, songs like, no 6, 2,4,6,8,motorway, i had never heard of that, and Spanisg Stroll, yet no 17 Sea Cruise, I love that song, I remember it being on the album Crepes and Drapes, which i brought in the lates 1970s, it was the first album that I ever brought, I still have it to this day, although the record player has long gone.
      Although the music I would give a 5/5 for, this album is really a 3/5, as yes do albums as complitations, but don't just churn them out.
