Format: Audio CD
This unique Australian band more or less was an offshot of the successful 1960's band the Easybeats. The talented songwriting team Harry Vanda and George Vanda continued to write material for other artists like John Paul Young after the split up of the Easybeats; but in the late 1970's they formed "Flash and the Pan", mostly as a studio-working band. They had one big hit with "Waiting For a Train" in 1983 and a couple of minor hits prior to that, but today they more or less seem to have been forgotten. This is really a big shame, because they recorded some excellent albums.

"Nights in France" from 1985 was my first album with the band, and I had not owned the album for long, before I knew I had to check out their other albums. This was not an easy task, because apart from "Early Morning Wake Up Call" they were all very hard to find. Note; this was before I was on the internet, and at a time when I still preferred vinyl albums to CD's.

Well, back to "Nights in France"!

The opening track "Money Don't Don't Lie" is one og the catchiest rockers they've ever recorded, but still the song bears most of their trademarks, such as intelligent ( often slightly cynical ) lyrics, exellent songwriting and George Young characteristic vocals, sounding like they sung through a megaphone.

The title song is another of the albums many standouts; Beautiful melody and moving lyrics.

The grooving riff-based "Ayla" was one of the singles taken from the album; sounds inspired by traditional African music - a song likely to grow on you.

With "Yesterday's Gone" the group is back to the style of early tracks of "Atlantic Calling" or "Down Among the Dead Men" - another favourite!

This cd is as catchy as all of their albums.It is impossible to pick a favourite one.The only songs that may not appeal to everyone are "Drawn By The Light" and "Bones",but compared what's out there,especially today,these tunes are still above average.This album completes every Flash & The Pan collection.They are definitely the most underrated band of all time.The only way to get their albums is through Amazon since their cds are out of print.What a shame.What is truely needed is a box set with all their songs including b-sides.It took me ages to complete my collection and i'm still not fully there.For anyone not familiar with this group try the cd "Ayla-The Best Of Flash & The Pan.
