Bay City Rollers: Les McKeown (vocals, guitar); Stuart "Woody" Wood (guitar, bass, background vocals); Eric Faulkner (guitar, background vocals); Derek Longmuir (drums). Recorded at The Budokan, Tokyo, Japan in 1977. Includes liner notes by Mark St. John. All tracks have been digitally remastered. In Britain, Bay City Rollers reigned supreme for something less than two years, and in America, they were tops for a little more than one. Only in Japan did their fame sustain for anything more than a couple of blinks of an eye and, by 1977 -- just three years after "Shang a Lang" topped charts around the world -- that land remained the Rollers' last stronghold. But what a stronghold it was, repository of some of the wildest hysteria in the entire Rollerworld. Hence the title of this collection; hence the unrelenting undulation of screaming and joy that forms a backdrop to the main attraction. Rollerworld is the Rollers' first and only live album, but it lacks the band's greatest hits. "It's a Game," the last of the Rollers' even vaguely memorable 45s, opens a show that has Serious Musicians stamped all over it. The surviving handful of "oldies" are, without exception, the ones that have a degree of classic class stamped on them. "Wouldn't You Like It" and a triumphantly stamp-along "Saturday Night" alone hail from the days of true tartan terrorism; "Rock 'n' Roll Love Letter" and "Yesterday's Heroes" represent the Dedication album; and "Money Honey" and "I Only Wanna Be with You" are the only prime-era hits. There's also a sterling version of David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel," spiraling out with even more aplomb than its studio counterpart. ~ Dave Thompson

    If you ever had a chance to see the Rollers live in Concert, than you will definately like this one. Very loud, lots of screaming fans! But once the music starts it's awesome to hear them singing live and to hear those wonderful Scottish accents!
