Hello: The Singles Collection, 2CD – Review

Hello: The Singles Collection, 2CD – Review

13th March 2021 0 By John Deaux

Back when the UK charts was ruled by such acts as Slade, The Sweet, Flintlock and T-Rex, there was Hello.

This 2 disc, 40 track album contains all the singles from 1972 right up to 1979 as well as their B-Sides.

Hello were one of the best glam rock bands of the 70s and deserve to be mentioned in the same breathe as Wizzard, The Rubettes and Racey.

Each track has been remastered and sound fantastic. Plenty of bottom end and the clattering drums sound fantastic. These tracks have a whole new lease of life. 
 Of course, most people of an age will know the hits New York Groove, Tell Him and Hellos version of Bend Me, Shake Me but when you star delving just a little bit deeper, you’ll find other tracks you’ll know. Such as Keep Us Off The Streets and Love Stealer.

Just over 3 years ago (2016) I reviewed the massive 4CD boxset of their albums and loved it. But I love this just a little bit more as it has all my own personal favourites packaged handily onto just 2 discs and the liner notes are fabulous.

If you like you’re 70’s glam rock or even the newer generation (The Darkness, Hanoi Rocks, The Quireboys and Spacehogs.) This the perfect collection of top tunes for you from one of the premier bands of that era.

Score 9/10
