Editorial Reviews

Although they never broke through to mass success, the all girl Runaways did make a major mark on the rock field and in doing so laid the foundations for other all girl groups like the Go Go's, Girlschool and The Bangles to build on as they knocked down the doors of prejudice of the then traditionally male dominated rock world. 1978's And Now... The Runaways was the band's fourth album in just two years and their first not to be produced by svengali Kim Fowley. Joan Jett and Lita Ford (now both the ripe old age of 20!) would soon part ways to pursue solo careers, and both would go on to become huge stars in the following decade. Printed Inner sleeve with band photo and liner notes.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting farwell from the first riot grrrls July 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The Runaways' final effort is an interesting mix of different tastes and styles of music. Recorded in 1978, lead vocalist Joan Jett's style had started to lean heavily towards punk, while powerhouse guitarist Lita Ford and drummer Sandy West had tastes which leaned towards Heavy Metal. This on top of some hints of New Wave music just beginning to come about at the time) makes for an interesting and often fun recording. Many of the songs here are covers, which is uncharacteristic for the band. However, the different musical directions of the band members coupled with constant attack from the press may contribute to the slight incoherency of style. My personal favorite track is "Black Leather", written by Sex Pistols Steve Jones and Paul Cook, which is a great representation of the Punk Rock era. The Beatles "Eight Days a Week" is taken down to a rather drippy ballad, and "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" (often covered by various bands) is a fun, up tempo track. Bonuses on this CD, especially for Runaways fans, are solos from drummer Sandy West ("Right Now", which I believe was released as a single in Japan-a great track) and Lita Ford's first lead vocal "I'm a Million". Though the bands' chemistry is a bit off if this disc is compared to previous efforts of theirs', it should be noted that they were in their late teen years and each hungry to come in to their own, which some were eventually able to do to greater commercial success. A cool purchase for those interested in early "riot grrl" music, and a must own for Runaways fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Queens of Noise's swan song March 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
After the personnel changes that occured at the conclusion of the girls' 1977 Japan tour this record shows the Runaways at the end of their existance. Starting with "Queens of Noise" the band had a formula for types of songs. For example, at least one track could be considered an anthem (Queens of Noise: title track, Waitin' for the Night: Little Sister), one track showcased Lita Ford's talents on lead guitar (Queens of Noise: Johnny Guitar, Waitin' for the Night: Fantasies). The only break in this pattern is Waitin' for the Night's title track, which is the Runaways' only (albeit hard-rock) ballad. For "And Now.. the Runaways!!" the anthem is Saturday Night Special and Lita Ford's guitar exhibit is on I'm a Million. This album is not the best of the bands work, that goes to the Live In Japan LP, but this is a historically significant work considering the later solo successes of both Ford and Joan Jett.

5.0 out of 5 stars Close to their best... December 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
As we Runaways fanatics wait(in vain?)for the domestic CD releases of the debut album, "Queens Of Noise" and(most especially)"Waitin' For The Night"(which was difficult to find on VINYL even when it first came out in Dec.'77), this is still a precious item to pick up. Joan Jett's vocals on the searching "My Buddy And Me" and (on Lita Ford's composition) "Little Lost Girls" are some of her finest moments to date, Sandy West's vocals on "Right Now" are charming, and the cover versions of Slade and the Beatles are excellent. Get it! Get it! Get it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Runaways March 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is the final Runaways album, also known as "Little lost girls". Good music, several covers, but not the same as they were with Cherie Curry as lead singer. Still a must for any Runaways fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Look For The Ladies. August 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
New look, same hard edged music. If your a fan it's a must have. If your new to The Runaways I suggest their first self titled album.
RIP Sandy
