The Supremes of the 80’s, Bananarama were a large part of Stock Aitken Waterman’s takeover of the British charts.
Despite not recording for the trios, PWL label, Keren, Sara and Siobhan benefited from ‘the firms’ production and writing conveyor belt on a huge number of charts hits including Love In the First Degree, Love Truth and Honesty and I Want You Back in the late 80’s. Earlier the girls had been hitting the big time with such massive hits as Cruel Summer, Robert Deniro’s Waiting and covers of Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye and Really Saying Something (with the Fun Boy Three). A natural comparison to the Supremes did nothing to deter the trio from covering one of the Motown stars biggest hits, Nathan Jones in the back part of the 80’s achieving one of their highest chart placing.
This budget two disc CD set collates all those mentioned above and a whole host of others in a 31 track homage to one of the 80’s biggest female groups. Beautifully packaged with sleeve notes by Michael Heatley this is a set that at this price deserves to be in your collection.
