AHEAD OF OF TIMES
“Times Square” is a double album that will add a bit of everything to any record collection.
The album is the sound track of the movie of the same name, and if the track listing is anything to go by then the film must be dynamite too.
To list all the bands contributing to the album would probably take up the whole Hot Gossip page, but to give you a taste of what’s in store, here’s just some of the top names included: the Pretenders, Roxy Music, Gary Numan, Joe Jackson, XTC, Suzi Quatro and a host of others.
Whetted your appetite? Then get hold of a copy now — it’s on the. RSO label.
