(Track listing follows.) As an album, "Bananarama" is a solid accomplishment, and proves that Keren, Sara and Siobhan's songwriting skills had matured since "Deep Sea Skiving." "Cruel Summer" would have been a better title for this collection of (mostly) socially-conscious themes and beach-friendly sounds. Not all is doom and gloom, but this is far and away the most thought-provoking album from the group to date. The Jolley & Swain production, generally upbeat and slightly whimsical, offers a contrast to lyrics about alienation, injustice and loss. It's a balancing act, and not every listener will find the contrast appealing.

Along with "Cruel Summer," this album produced hits like "Rough Justice," "Hot Line To Heaven" and "Robert DeNiro's Waiting," and this deluxe three disc set includes album/single and extended versions of them all. It also includes a non-lp track, "The Wild Life," in single, instrumental, extended and dub versions. The remainder of "bonus" tracks on discs one and two are b-sides, dub versions, and remixes. Of these, "Cairo," "Push!" and "Live Now" are especially notable. The 1989 "Swing Beat" remixes of "Cruel Summer" were produced by Stock Aitken Waterman over five years after the original version debuted, and in this reviewer's opinion they don't add much value to this collection.

The dvd in the set is one of the better compilations to come with these deluxe reissues, with seven promotional music videos, and four additional appearances on the BBC. And like the other Bananarama packages, the discs all come in a small hardcover book that also includes song lyrics, release notes, chart data, original album/single art, and an informative essay by reissue producer Tom Parker.

Their second album in all of its quirky, fun, new waveish glory. This reissue, all six in the series as a matter of fact, are the type of release fans dream of. How I wish other bands would follow suit and release quality, all-inclusive, reissues like these. The packaging is great, the liner notes superb, tons of extra photos, and every b-side, demo, single mi1x, dub mix, and 12" remix associated with the album. This newest release collects ALL versions in their complete, unedited formats. Add to this a bonus DVD that includes all of the music videos from the album and even a few live TV appearances to top that off. Even though the band has stated their disappointment as not being included in the track selection and remastering, l feel the record company did an excellent job with these re-issues and the girls should be proud of their accomplishments and these stellar re-releases! Quite simply, a collector's dream. NOTE: This review is for the 2CD/1DVD 2013 Re-Issue from Edsel Records.

I have today taken delivery of all 5 of the Bananarama albums that have been reissued by Collectables in the US. When I ordered them, I noticed that there was a suspicious lack of information about remastering on any website but still nothing could have prepared me for the disappointment over the sound quality of these new editions! They sound like poor bootlegs. Furthermore there are are no sleevenotes and not all the original artwork is included. 5 Stars for the music - 1 for the mastering!!

Although some might balk at the price of the BANANARAMA CD SET, as of this writing it's about $26.00, you're actually getting a good deal. The release by Edsel/Rhino has 2 CDs with bonus tracks including different mixes and versions of the songs contained on the self-titled second album from Bananarama, including the song "The Wild Life," which was added on the cassette back in the 80s but missing from the first CD version of this album. Plus, you also get a DVD that has all the music videos released for the singles from BANANARAMA and performances on the BBC!

But the goodies don't stop there! There's also a booklet that features color and b&w photos of the group and the various album art from different countries, as well as song credit, and the lyrics to all of the songs -- including the bonus ones. This is especially appreciated because most of the really good reissue companies like Big Break Records don't include the lyric sheet with their reissues opting to focus on interviews and other info from the recording sessions instead.

There's also liner notes written in August 2013 by the reissue producer, Tom Parker, that provides the background information of what happened between the group's first release and this one, and the inspiration behind each of the songs. I didn't know that group (Sara Dallin, Keren Woodward and Siobahn Fahey) also contributed to the writing of the songs on BANANARAMA and many of them had strong lyrics dealing with social issues, which was belied by their angelic harmonies.

The discs are housed in medium weight cardboard sleeves with a cut-out notch at the top and bottom, allowing part of the disc to be visible, so they can be accessed and put away easily, and the set is looks like a hardcover book.

Still the best Bananarama album. I remember when Karate Kid first came out-the song "Cruel Summer" stood out more than any other from the movie, yet was not included on the original soundtrack for some insane reason-so I skipped the soundtrack and grabbed this on cassette when it came out. Love it!
