WHO - New LP

Might provide some hope for Citizens, but the new Who LP is pretty decent.  Opening track, All This Music Must Fade is quite brilliant!  I dont wanna get wise is also superb.

Believe the hype, it is their best LP since Quadrophenia.

Will check it out. Peter Perrett of The Only Ones latest album Humanworld is another example of high standards  from a classic old skool songwriter, in fact Perrett easily would be in my top ten all time favourites.  Just love his voice too ,sounds great since he quit smoking a few years back.

 Wonder if HMV would do similar with The Rats LP?  

Eight greatest hits?

  1. I Dont Like Mondays
  2. Rat Trap
  3. Banana Republic
  4. Someones Looking 
  5. Shes So Modern
  6. Mary of The 4th Form
  7. Looking After No. 1
  8. Charmed Lives    (OK, Diamond Smiles, but I would prefer House on Fire or Guilty or Dave)

Wouldn't Like Clockwork be in the middle there somewhere, spending 3 weeks as it did at no. 6 in the summer of '78?

 Crikey I forgot to list that. Missed the bleeding obvious.

Revised...

 

  1. I Dont Like Mondays
  2. Rat Trap
  3. Banana Republic
  4. Someones Looking 
  5. Like Clockwork
  6. Shes So Modern
  7. Mary of The 4th Form
  8. Looking After No. 1

Diamond Smiles may have charted slightly higher in the UK charts than Mary, but Mary is the better track.

And they should all be the single mixes.

If LC was listed, would that leave Modern and Diamond Smiles battling it out for 8th place? They reached 12 and 13 respectively on the singles chart. But is it too simplistic to assume Modern shifted more units?

Diamond Smiles is not in the top 8.  The eight I listed are. Just an anomaly that Mary had a lower position. I suspect that would hold up in terms of sales and weeks on chart.

Not entirely conclusive,but Mary averaged higher positions.

 1994

  • VERCD87 I Don't Like Mondays/Looking After No.1/Mary of the 4th Form/She's So Modern
  • VERDD87 I Don't Like Mondays/Rat Trap/Someone's Looking At You/Banana Republic

 

And the mini greatest hits on two CDs as well. Like me Like Clockwork was criminally overlooked...

 Never been a massive fan, but like a fair bit of their output. Had the chance to check some of the new album out and its good. Those tracks above I particularly like, Rogers voice sounds as strong as ever. Also like Ball and Chain, particularly the piano work on it. As you say, builds hope for Citizens of Boomtown.

 I wasnt a massive fan until probably about four years ago when I first saw them live. Have to be selective though.  Quadrophenia, Tommy and Whos Next are great LPs but the Live LPs showcase them best. Live at Leeds in particular.  When I was visiting universities with son, have to confess I did build up Leeds so I could do my homage trip.  The Rats playing Brighton also ticks the boxes. Have to find a pinball...
