The Bangles: Susanna Hoffs, Vicki Peterson (vocals, guitar); Michael Steele (vocals, bass); Debbi Peterson (vocals, drums).
This is part of Legacy's Super Hits series.
Despite its brief playing time--10 songs in 32 minutes--the budget compilation SUPER HITS is actually a more satisfying collection than 1990's full-length singles survey GREATEST HITS. Besides recapitulating the best of the band's singles, like the swooningly lovely "If She Knew What She Wants" and the tough-girl kiss-off "Hero Takes A Fall," SUPER HITS adds an idiosyncratic selection of album tracks that offers a more balanced overview of the band's career. A slightly-reworded version of Big Star's "September Gurls" did wonders in raising that band's hipster profile. (Ditto the excellent take on Emmit Rhodes' "Live," also included.) Original gems like Susanna Hoffs' tender "James" and Michael Steele's fantastic "Complicated Girl" are even better. And yes, it has "Walk Like An Egyptian." If you must buy only one Bangles record...well, it should be 1984's classic ALL OVER THE PLACE. But this will do in a pinch.
