Description:
Original Album Series gathers together the first five albums from Athens, Georgia, new wave dance punkers the B-52's, starting with their 1979 self-titled debut and working through their strongest material up to 1989's Cosmic Thing. Other albums included here are the underrated Whammy! and Bouncing Off the Satellites as well as 1980's sophomore effort, Wild Planet. Sadly omitted are early-period stopgap EPs Party Mix! and the David Byrne-produced mini-album Mesopotamia. While not a complete picture of the band's brightest years, highlights are plentiful, with classic dance singles like "Rock Lobster," "Private Idaho," and "52 Girls," deeper cuts like "Summer of Love" and "Legal Tender," and later pop radio hits like "Love Shack" and "Roam." Apart from the hit singles, Original Album Series offers bountiful lesser-known songs from the early catalog of the B-52's, highlighting the fun and spontaneity of the band's best work. ~ Fred Thomas
