Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Trooper's 12-song greatest-hits collection is like the soundtrack to a long, hot '70s summer. Nostalgia makes songs like "Baby Woncha Please Come Home," "We're Here for a Good Time," "Oh Pretty Lady," and their signature tune, "Raise a Little Hell," sound fresh despite their shelf dates, and the straightforward performances hold up surprisingly well. From "The Boys in the Bright White Sports Car" to the piano-driven ballad "Moment that it Takes," these songs have a good-time feel. --Adem Tepedelen

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Roger Smith on Sept. 13 2006
Format: Audio CD
While growing up in Rossland, B.C., there was always a few things you could count on; drinking beer on the weekends, fighting at Silver City Days, very long winters and going to a Trooper concert in Trail every spring. These guys went from hard rockers to a type of bubblegum pop that was amazingly still quite good. This album give a good overview of their most productive time but to really enjoy these guys somehow get your hands on their first album as it is fantastic.

Hot Shots! is a compilation of some of the best old fashioned and to-the-point rock music ever to come out of Canada. Like Bryan Adams and Loverboy, Trooper music didn't add anything new to the music industry but that was not the idea. With songs like We're Here for a good time and Raise a little hell, Trooper have demonstrated that rock music should be about fun and this album very much epitomizes that old time rock n roll sound. No pretentiousness, no BS, just good music. Highly recommended. Other Trooper albums worth listening to are: Flying Colours & The Last of the Gypsies.

There are very few albums out there where all of the songs are good or great. These albums are, by definition, classics that any fan of the genre must have. I think "Hot Shots" is one of them. There's not a weak song in the bunch. Since it was a Greatest Hits record as of 1979, it obviously doesn't include material from Trooper's later albums (the follow-up studio album, "Flying Colours", is almost as good). However, its collection of straight-ahead 70s rock and ballads is absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended.

This is the best "Greatest Hits" album, bar none! It doesn't matter if you're 50 years old or 5 years old, these songs are excellent. You can actually hear the guys having a ball singing them. This is a must for cruising and summer parties!

This album brings back fond memories of my high school days. Who could forget The Boys in the bright white sports car? All of the girls wanted a boy in a white car when that album came out. They were H.O.T.

This album has a very low gain / volume. So, when it's played in the cd player with other albums it's volume is much much lower than the others (I played it with 3 other albums and all of the others were much louder. The album cover has this tacky "Compact Disc" label on the front that is not a sticker - but part of the cover so you can't remove it. The sleeve has nothing on it - this is like a burned cd or knock off - the quality of the cd is poor and the album cover is tacky with the "compact disc compact price". Although I only paid $8 for the cd I would rather have paid more for a better quality cd.
