Reviews & Opinions

CHISWICK RECORDS BLOGSPOT: From Japan comes this excellent, but probably not very legal, CD with 22 songs recorded by the Radio Stars for the BBC. Two In Concert live sets and their third, and final, Peel Session. Sound quality is pretty good, AM mono taped from the radio, and the performances pretty darn solid. Best of the bunch is the May 1978 (and not 1976, as the sleeve states) In Concert recording, which is just a hit-after-shouldhavebeenhit blast with the bands in it's prime. The Peel Session dates from September of the same year and has great versions of Radio Stars and Boy Meets Girl and as an extra bonus you get Squeeze doing Sad Girl (Must be some Japanese joke I don't get). By the time of the June 1979 In Concert set, the Radio Stars had lost some of their spark. The older songs still sound great, but newer material like Wall Of Death and Nice Girls don't really measure up. That said, I don't think any fan would want to be without this CD. Check the usual auction sites for availability...
