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.
For those of us brought up on hand me down sixties pop and rock it's hardly surprising we'd fall for it.
Those of us who were braver back in '85 venturing out to our record store buying the album were only to find that this was really a bar band with a neat line in well crafted good-time rock being 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.
