Another from my New Wave/Power Pop purchase of 2008 and what a purchase this one was. I loved Scandal as a kid. It was one of those loves, though that I didn't really share with too many guy friends.
I don't know how much these guys are appreciated now days. I remember in the 90's when the 80's radio stations and the 80's lunchtime hours started popping up on the airwaves, but I don't remember much Scandal being played, at least not on the stations I heard. When I started getting into collecting records I remember finding "The Warrior" and being so thrilled. I hadn't heard that song in so long. I remember putting it on and falling in love all over again. I think I mentioned to my wife, that I couldn't believe how that song has kind of been forgotten.
Well, the songs on this EP I don't think have been forgotten. In fact I think Scandal has a bit of a comeback and it is well deserved. This EP is so smoking hot I can't believe it. I bought this and again it was like going back in the wayback machine and remembering how great this band was.
In doing some research I learned that this EP was the biggest selling EP in the history of Colombia records. That's a pretty amazing thing.
Since purchasing this record a month or so ago, I have put in on the turn table many a time. In fact I'm one of those geeky people who if I love a song I will listen to it several times in a row. My family can attest to the fact that I have on several occasions listened to side one two or three times in a row. The music is that infectious. So if you don't know or remember Scandal, please download now and listen to the first 2 tracks. Pure 80's classics. If you know them, but may have forgotten the pop genius that was Scandal, download and relive the greatness.
