Comment on teamy's review - the Hot Chocolate track is about an alien encounter, its in the lyrics!


April 10, 2009

Odd compilation from 1980 compiling often disparate artists under a running theme of Outer Space. Made even odder by the fact that the first track is Hot Chocolate's 'No Doubt About It', which has no obvious space connection.
It soon gets on track with the excellent 'Theme From Space Invaders/Firecracker'and for the most part is a great compilation which contains a few blinders that are worth putting up with having to skip the two Dollar tracks ('Magic Fly', 'Dancing In Outer Space'.)
