Little Robbers was the Motels fourth album from 1982 and it served to confirm their reputation as stylish hit-makers, with songs such as "Suddenly Last Summer" that was a top ten hit, and "Remember the Nights" that evokes memories of past liaisons.
Deluxe Vinyl Replicas by Culture Factory constitute high quality reissued compact-discs which reproduce all the components of the original LPs and are their exact replicas in compact-disc size (5.3 x 5.3 inches), with authentic single or gatefold cardboard jackets and paper sleeves. In addition to the above, each compact-disc Deluxe Vinyl Replica includes a black finish CD complete with the original label to give it the look and feel of the original record album. Culture Factory strives to achieve an authentic sound with the highest possible fidelity to the original studio masters. Our remastering process brings out the music's true dynamics and original clarity with low levels of noise. In the remastering studio the audio tracks are handled in the form of high-definition, 96Kz / 24-bit digital files for greatest preservation of fidelity. Signal compression is sometimes used to bring out frequencies that were absent or barely heard in the original recordings, and we use the least amount of compression possible. While sound perception varies greatly among individuals our vinyl replica CDs are designed to provide the optimal listening experience when using flat EQ settings. Brand new, original, factory-shrinkwrapped, limited edition CD release.
Truly amazing! The attention to detail, the remastering, the overall packaging-- I've never seen anything this complete or as well done EVER. Greatest CDs ever. 10+, five stars, all walk-off grand slams! --Gary Moore, 95.5KLOS-FM

My only complaint with this copy (and The Motels) I ordered from Culture Factory (through Amazon) is the lack of protection for the disc and outside cover protector. The disc is housed in a cardboard sleeve (no plastic to protect from scratching) and the CD cover should have come with a resealable bag to protect this collectors item. My copy of All Four One came from another seller and was sealed in a resealable cover protector and the CD slides into a plastic sleeve before placing into cardboard sleeve. That disc is protected for a long time. These others will be damaged for sure!
But with those minor quibbles, this is awesome work these guys have done on this under-rated band from the '80s. Martha Davis and The Motels never sounded this good before (maybe except in the studio).
Still looking forward to Shock getting this treatment in September!
The album also knocked off a second solid single with "Remember The Nights." Problem was, after the singles, "Little Robbers" was not as solid as "All Four One." There was even a groaner with "Isle of You," and some generic AOR stuff that hasn't held up so well. The best of the album can be found on The Essential Collection, much like their final album, Shock. Some really good stuff here, with Martha Davis remaining one of the 80's more charismatic female vocalists.
As for the remaster, like many of the Culture Factory re-issues, it leans toward loud and over-compressed. So if you have that old One-Way reissue from the early 2000's, don't let go of it just yet.
It's not Politically Correct and I was amazed it got any airplay (I heard it on the late, great KMET 94.7 FM in LA). It's darn near PEOPLE'S music as opposed to the endless corporate drek we hear everywhere.
Little fingers only trying to roll one, my frozen fingers trying to find a cold one...
As we gun this sucker straight into the heartland.
Maybe it was an happy accident, but they NAILED this song, this is pure rock and roll that is EASILY worth the purchase price of the CD. BUY IT NOW WHILE IT'S STILL IN PRINT. And if you like the Motels, the other tunes are some of their best work.
But, darn, "Into The Heartland" could be a national anthem, it is really right up there with "Born To Run," it's that good, no kidding. BUY IT!!!
I got "Little Robbers" because it had two out of the three of my favorites, and I liked a couple of the other samples I heard on here.
Of the titles on this CD, "Remember the Nights" is my favorite! It's energetic, and colorful, telling wistfully of wonderful, romantic getaways.
After listening to the CD, I also came to like "Where Do We Go From Here," and "Monday Shut Down" (which apparently doesn't exist on any other Motels CD).
The title track, "Little Robbers" is a playful party tune and it's enjoyable.
All in all I liked half the tracks on this album, which isn't bad.
