CD Reviews

A decent import quickie
jon sieruga | Redlands, CA USA | 01/19/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"An Australian pressing of Cherie & Marie's "Messin' With the Boys", augumented with bonus tracks from Cherie's solo outing "Beauty's Only Skin Deep", a nice B-side ("Longer Than Forever", co-written by Marie), a Runaways outtake (the cute "Hollywood Dream"), and two very fine Beatles covers Cherie used as auditioning material for a spot in the movie "Sgt. Pepper's" (she didn't get the part). Quite a package for one cheap price, though Kim Fowley's acerbic liner notes are probably more enjoyable than the music, which occasionally sounds stilted or dated. 'B'"
Great songs..poor tracking though

"First of all, I still have the LP "Messing With The Boys" and always liked it. Being a long time "Runaways" fan, I have been looking for a CD release of this album! Well, here it is! Unfortunetly, the tracking between songs is choppy! That 's a major let down. The track "Beauty Is Only Skin Deep" has static too! Bummer! Although, this CD is worth the 4 stars JUST on it's including the Runaways tracks "Hollywood Dreams", "Strawberry Fields Are Forever" & "Here Comes the Sun" from the rare "Flaming Schoolgirls" LP. Sounding GREAT! Right from the masters! Runaways, Cherie Curie & Jettheads gotta get this!
I wonder if the other CD has better tracking. I guess I have to buy that one too to find out! To be continued......"

"Ex-Runaways vocalist teams up with twin sister Marie on this album. Although panned by critics, this album features superior vocal and instrumental talent. The music Cherie recorded with the Runaways (featuring Joan Jett and Lita Ford) leaned more toward new wave, this album offers a broader range of rock and roll, landing more between Pat Benatar and Stevie Nicks. Many of the musicans on this album recorded with 80's superband Toto. Would like to hear more from this duo."
