Bay City Roller fans are in for a pop rock treat from Cherry Red Records as the label has just released a 3 CD box set called “Bay City Rollers: The Singles Collection.”
“The Singles Collection” gathers all of the band’s singles together in one collection for the first time ever. 47 tracks spread over 3 CDs. The set also comes with a 28 page full color booklet with notes for each single plus rare and unseen photos of the individual picture sleeves.
This set includes all of the band’s biggest UK hits such as “Keep On Dancing,” “Remember (Sha-La-La-La),” “Bye Bye Baby, ” “Give A Little Love,” “Shang-A-Lang,” “Summer Love Sensation,” and “All Of Me Loves All Of You.” Plus all of their smash hits in the USA including “Saturday Night,” “Money Honey,” “Rock And Roll Love Letter,” “I Only Want To Be With You,” “You Made Me Believe In Magic” and “The Way I Feel Tonight.”
The whole set has been mastered by James Bragg for the best sound quality available anywhere. Diehard fans will want to own this to have all of the singles in one collection and for casual fans this is the best way to learn more about the band you loved for a short period when you were growing up and just discovering music.
Cherry Red Records has once again given music fans an incredible collection of original single tracks and never before available on CD rarities. Each disc comes in a mini album sleeve which are all housed in a hard clamshell case.
The package is stellar but wait until you hear the audio because these tracks have never sounded this good in any format before. If you already own these tunes in other formats it’s definitely time for an upgrade. If you’ve never owned them before then now is the time to get great audio and quality packaging at a price that won’t break the bank.
