Think of summertime radio and you fall straight back to this Anglo-American outfit known as Katrina and the Waves whose hit Walking On Sunshine written 4 years before charting is THE summer song.
Those of us who were braver back in '85 ventured and bought the album only to find that this was really a bar band with a neat line in well crafted good-time rock. It was followed up a year later by Waves! which featured the European hit Sun Street.
Fortunately BGO reissued the albums on a single cd in 1996 in an excellent transfer.
