Powerstation (Reviewed by Iluvthe80s):
album I have is on vinyl and have had since it was new. It is so worn
out that recently I had to break down and buy a CD to replace it. I have
always loved this 1985 album with such hits as "Some Like It Hot",
"Bang A Gong (Get It On)" which is a old T. Rex cover, and the
not so played "Communication". This album delivers a blend of
jazz meets rock sound. Again, I have always loved the guitarwork of Andy
Taylor. (Outside of Duran, he was really able to shine!) Plus, the soulful
sounds of Robert Palmer's voice I have always admired as far back as the
Definately a good album to listen to. My favorite tracks are : "Lonely
Tonight", "Murderess", and "Bang A Gong (Get It On)".
1. Some Like
3. Lonely Tonight
5. Bang A Gong (Get It On)
6. Go To Zero
7. Harvest For The World
8. Still In Your Heart
that some of you Powerstation fans might not be aware of. I only found
out two years ago. In 1996, The Powerstation got back together to make
a new CD. The album is called "Living In Fear" and it is a great
album also. It is just a little harder to find. I found mine at BMG Music
Service of all places. Never seen it in the stores.

I havent looked hard enough, but where did you find a CD for the Powerstation?
I have it on tape, but its gotten so old and played I have to be very
careful when I play it or I'm afraid it will break. By the way, I called
the Powerstation in NYC, way back when that album first came out. I just
hung up when they answered.

I found mine in a used CD store down here that is now out
of business called Neptune's Music. The best bet for finding one is probably
Ebay. The pop up all the time on there. You can go to www.andytaylor.com
and the board owner usually will post a daily post on her message board
of all Andy Taylor related merchandise on Ebay (that includes Powerstation
merchandise). It will be under the "I'm looking for.." category
on the message board.
