I was a fan of the Sputniks in the 80's when their music was more about glamour and fun. This is a superb collection and includes some rare b-sides ("Frankenstein Cha Cha" being one such track) that any true fan will know are very hard to find. It also has all the obvious hits like Love Missile, Sex bomb boogie etc but the best track on the collection as a whole is lifted from their second album and is called Rio Rocks - the track is fun and flouncy and contains the requisite balance between Martin's camp voice and the space guitars. A real must for any fan !
