Great Music - Shame About the Sound Quality

"I have today taken delivery of all 5 of the Bananarama albums that have been reissued by Collectables in the US. When I ordered them, I noticed that there was a suspicious lack of information about remastering on any website but still nothing could have prepared me for the disappointment over the sound quality of these new editions! They sound like poor bootlegs. Furthermore there are are no sleevenotes and not all the original artwork is included. 5 Stars for the music - 1 for the mastering!!"
Tim is right!

"I got my Bananarama CD today and I agree with Tim. The sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. I think the makers forgot to plug in one of the speakers because the tight & full harmonies are not there in a lot of places. I own the original record and it has a fuller, richer sound. I got the CD because I was hoping for a remastered version. There are no liner notes at all. Also, I own the original album version before "Wild Life" was added and there was a wonderful vocal riff after Dream Baby on side one that is missing from the CD and is a disappointment. I give the album itself a 5 star rating, this CD is a 1, so I guess an overall 3."

"Excellent album from the group from 1984. Keren, Siobhan, and Sarah really did a good job on this album. Some of my favorite tracks are Through a Child's Eyes, Hotline to Heaven, and The Wild Life. Bananarama is such a unique musical act, very photogenic and likeable, and talented. Bananarama is a must for anyone who likes British pop at its best."
