Although it took 10 years for five Edinburgh teens to achieve U.S. success, the Bay City Rollers finally exploded in a big way in early 1976. Though their successful run would be short-lived, the band released a string of notable pop singles that are collected here.
After hitting the UK charts, the group played on the debut of "Howard Cosell's Saturday Night Live." This was their equivalent to the Beatles' "Ed Sullivan Show" appearance, and "Saturday Night" shot to No.1. "Money Honey," another U.S. smash, is slightly heavier with a great guitar riff. "Rock and Roll Love Letter" and "Yesterday's Hero" are upbeat, fun and danceable tracks, while "Rock 'N Roller" features the Rollers trading vocals on their most rocking tune. The band's third vocalist, Duncan Faure, turns in a fine, John Waite-like performance on "Turn On the Radio." Arguably, this New Wave nugget is the band's strongest material, despite its decreased album sales at the time. The Bay City Rollers deserve this long-overdue reevaluation.
