Those few of us who know who Taxxi was, have waited a long time for this CD. For years, we have been looking in used record stores for this music. Many of us wrote to Fantasy Records asking them to put Taxxi on CD. Finally it is here. There's nothing new on this release so those of you who know what this is will love it. It is the best of their first three records; Day For Night, States Of Emergency and Foreign Tongue. Music from their fourth record (Expose)is absent since it was an MCA release. If you were a Taxxi fan, buy it!

I was shocked to find this awesome collection in the used CD bin at my favorite audio store. A must for any 80's non-conventional listener. Taxxi created and fused rock and techno pop delicously. I have to agree that the production was a tad weak in regards to keyboards. Was surprise that Metro b.d was not on there or Lipstick.... but a great CD overall. Sherry.

Taxxi is one of the great "lost treasure" bands from the Eighties, and Chequered Past captures their best work. While missing a few songs that belong here (including "Heaven & The Heartaches" from "The Secret Of My Success" soundtrack), this is the perfect collector's edition for serious students of well-crafted pop from this decade. Side note: former Taxxi drummer Jeff Nead is now driving Gum Machine, whose excellent CD "Extra Chewy" is currently available on Amazon.

Taxxi never was one of those amazing bands, but they always had those catchy songs on each of their four albums. The only really good song missing here is "Still In Love", which was on Expose, released by MCA. Not to say that Taxxi doesn't have great songs; they do! Their best album was their first, which had 3 great songs on it and they all made the cut to get on this greatest hits package. After the first album, there was a clear cut single on the next three albums and the rest of the songs just couldn't hold a candle to that single.
There are 5 great memorable songs on this disc and they are "Whipping Boy", "Maybe Someday", "Cocktail Queen", "I'm Leaving" and "Girl". There are a few other interesting songs like "Not Me Girl", "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" and "You're so Pretty". Most of the songs have a good beat to, dare I say, dance to, although they are good songs to listen to in the car, also. The musicians are not stellar, but the songs are well mixed and produced. It was about time this came out, but I wish Fantasy would have worked something out with MCA to make this a complete Chequered Past. Relive a good part of the 80's club scene; take a Taxxi for a change.
