4.0 out of 5 stars Bring On The Funkateers April 30 2008
By Nic Vent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was hooked when I first heard Queen of the rapping scene over 25 years ago and thought Geoffery Deane was supreme on it. I bought the LP when it came out and enjoyed it thoroughly. However, since the demise of my turntable, I was bereft of the album for over 15 years in searching for the CD until Wounded Bird released this again. For that I thank them. Now if only we can get our hands on the second album on CD - Trick of the light without the need for paying exhorbitantly on ebay.

Musically, this album was a breath of funk punctuated by one or 2 salsa tracks which I personally felt was inconsistent with the vibe of the whole album but... it worked with Modern Romance.The track listing is however incorrect on Amazon as only tracks number 1 to 7 are on the CD with one missing track - "I stand alone" from the LP not available on the CD.The inner sleeve if included lyrics or new footnotes would have been better for the overall package. Would have been a 'five stars'review from me if not for the gaps listed above.But nevertheless, having this is better than not having it at all.
5.0 out of 5 stars New Wave Meets Salsa Dec 18 2012

UK band Modern Romance combined the best elements of New Wave along with warm Latin dance rhythms on the debut album Adventures In Clubland. Although never officially remastered, Wounded Bird's reissue sure sounds as if it was. This cd needs to be brought back and in print instead of comanding such high prices on the net. Same goes for their second album Trick Of The Light.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great moment in the 80s June 24 2008

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
for those who like the music of the eighties and especially songs that were not successful in u.s.a., as this group alone had outstanding success in some countries, good in reality were three songs in a medley with a very good blend of disco music and Latino sound , I had the opportunity to watch the success of video promotion at the time that call (everybody salsa) hurt that the video can not be taken, it would be great to get the complete collection of the group as both audio and video, such After some day we can buy success in simple video in DVD format, i hope so...
