Too Shy: the Best of Kajagoogoo and Limahl/+DVD
2009 two disc (CD + PAL/Region 0 DVD) pressing of this collection from the '80s Pop band including two new tracks plus a DVD containing their videos and more. This compilation features tracks from the band (with and without vocalist Limahl) plus solo recordings from Limahl himself. The release also includes liner notes featuring track-by-track commentary from the band. EMI.
My complaint is the lack of 'Shouldn't Do That' on either the CD or DVD discs........
Also contains two songs lifted from the 'Death Defying Headlines EP' - check out the bands website for more info on that one.
Don't hesitate - just buy!
Kajagoogoo are not one hit wonders, their first album White Feathers spawned 3 hit singles including of course their signature tune Too Shy which is still very classy by todays standards. Their second album Islands (Without Limahl) was as good, if not better in my opinion changing direction and becoming a more Jazz/Funk/Brass sound which showed they can really play. Actually my fav is on this album the thumping Lions Mouth and the go for it sound of Big Apple. After the success their third album struggled which led to them splitting up until their appearance on the MTV bands Reunited show and recent reformation. Something which alot of 80's band are now doing.
Yes they are definatley a product of the 80's with dodgy hairstyles and some daft videos but don't let that put you off. They have some top feel good tunes that you will remember if you where a teen at the time and they are all here including a classic Top of the Pops version of Too Shy to singalong too with a couple of new tracks too. So enjoy and it's great to see them back !!!!
GLAD A KAJA VIDEOS DVD IS AVAILABLE.
I LOVE LIMAHL'S MOP IT MADE ME LAUGH 30 YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS A KID - NOW I'M A BIGGER KID I STILL LAUGH.
IT'S OBVIOUS THAT NIK BEGGS IS A BETTER SINGER THAN LIMAHL WHO IS SUITED MORE AS A SOLO ARTIST THAN A MEMBER OF KAJA .
THE VIDEO FOR THE REUNITED KAJA WITH LIMAHL " SPACE CADET PROMO " IS FUNNY NIK LOOKS FUNNY IN HIS WHATEVER HE'S WEARING ? PERHAPS HE'S GOT A DRINK PROBLEM AND LIKE OZZY OSBOURNE IN THE LATE 80s WHO'S WIFE HID IS CLOTHES SO HE COULDN'T SNEAK OFF TO THE BOOZER ? SO HE WENT OUT IN HIS WIFE'S DRESS .
IT'S NOT A KILT NIK'S WEARING IT LOOKS LIKE A DRESS ? UUUM STRANGE . ALL THE BAND HAVE CHANGED IN 30 + YEARS EXCEPT THE KEYBOARD PLAYER WHO MUST BE IMMORTAL OR SOMETHING ? YES LIMAHL HAS THE SAME MOP ON HIS HEAD BUT IT'S BEEN TRIMMED ROUND THE EARS BY DEWHURST THE MASTER BUTCHER . YES THESE GUYS CAN STILL SING WELL " BLESS 'EM "
AND THIS IS A GR8 CD / DVD SET AND WORTH ADDING TO YOUR COLLECTION !
La remasterisation apporte quand à elle une nette amélioration en termes qualitatifs.
