Editorial Reviews

2010 two CD compilation from the most excellent and groovy '80s Pop combo led by songwriter Paul Bevoir. Formed in 1979 by teenage friends Bevoir and Melvyn J Taub, the band developed their style under the guidance of former Advertising and Secret Affair drummer, More influenced by The Monkees and Beatles bubblegum cards, they were lumped in with the British Mod scene of the early to mid '80s. There Goes the Neighborhood, their first full-length album was released in 1985. The album was well reviewed in the UK music press and it was followed by Go Bananas, an album which featured commercials for Jetset products between songs. Bevoir retired from touring to concentrate on his songwriting and together with Bultitude created the lushly orchestrated Vaudeville Park.This compilation features an overview of the bands career containing tracks new to CD, exclusive artwork by Bevoir and an essay on the band's career. 47 tracks. Cherry Red.

Format: MP3 Music
When you consider the phrase "power pop", The Monkees, The Wombles or The Cowsills don't come to mind - fabricated bands playing light weight pop. How wrong and how unfair. In many ways these bands perfectly captured the late 60s - breezy songs, well played, lovely harmonies. Fifteen years later here came The Jetset, a worthy successor. In this 50 track compilation you get pretty much every recording and amazingly you won't lose interest. On the first CD more Monkees influences and on the second more Badfinger. You can't miss.
