Various - Another Slice Of Vintage Cheese
"Another slice of vintage cheese" delivers more than sixty old favourites over three CD's.
The album title is a bit misleading as I wouldn't put the majority of tracks under the cheesy banner as it's just a collection of hits from the 60's to the 80's.
The album's certainly full of variety as it mixes glam favourites like T Rex's "I love to boogie" and The Glitter Band's "Let's get together again" alongside 80's pop like "9 to 5" from Sheena Easton and "Best years of our lives" from punk bandwagon jumpers turned salsa singers - Modern Romance.
Old talent shows also get a look in as "Opportunity knocks" favourites Paper Lace, Candlewick Green and Peters and Lee rub shoulders with Carl Wayne singing the theme tune to "New Faces".
Burger salesman David Van Day pop up twice in the collection with Dollar's "Who were you with in the moonlight" appearing alongside Guy's n Dolls "Whole lot of loving" hopefully earning him a couple of pounds for hot dog buns!
One of the stand out tracks from the album is "Airport" from The Motors.This was the reason I pulled the album out of the CD Times vault of shiny goodies as it's one of my favourite pop songs from the late 70's, giving me a chance to own a true classic on CD.
There are plenty of tracks in the collection to liven up a Christmas party with the Tams "Be young be foolish be happy", "I am the beat" from The Look and "Centrefold" from the J Geils band just some of the songs guaranteed to get people on to the floor.
So when the turkey's been gobbled and the trifle tucked away bring out the cheese...
