This album is a compilation of rerecoreded hits by the band done fairly late in thier career. It does not have the same energy as the original songs released 30 years ago.

Format: Audio CD
Formed in a city with a tradition of lace manufacturing, Paper lace got their big break in 1974 via the TV talent show Opportunity knocks. Their debut single, Billy don't be a hero (about a brave soldier who died in combat) gave them their only UK number one hit. Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods covered hit and had an American hit with the song, preventing Paper lace from repeating their British success in America.

The next single, The night Chicago died (set in the era of prohibition), was a top three UK hit. Without competition from any cover version, it gave them a number one American hit.

Paper Lace's third 1974 single, The black eyed boys, just missed the UK top ten, after which they disappeared from the charts although they made a one-off return in 1978 as backing group for the Nottingham Forest football club with We've got the whole world in our hands.

The single with Nottingham Forest is not included, but their three big hits are all here together with covers of Ragamuffin man (Manfred Mann) and Hitching a ride (Vanity Fare) as well as many other fine songs.

If you enjoy mainstream pop music of the mid-seventies, you might like the music of Paper Lace.

I own the LP by Paper Lace and just recently acquired this CD.The tracks on this CD are the original recordings.If not,my ears can't tell.Perhaps some of the comments written are getting the song "Billy don't be a hero" confused with Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods version.Both were released in 1974.Paper Lace hit #1 in the UK in March of '74 and Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods hit #1 in the USA in Jun '74 and #1 in Canadain Jul '74.

Remakes.

That's all you need to know, isn't it?

This CD does NOT include the versions we knew and loved.
