ROB SEZ: Always did have a soft spot for the Bangles, especially their first recordings. After they started having hits, the sound became slicker and they lost some of their appeal. But like many guys (and, I assume, some girls), Susanna Hoffs and at least one other Bangle still held a compelling allure.
 
The Bangles:
Susanna Hoffs - guitar, vocal
Debbi Peterson - drums, vocal 
Vicki Peterson - guitar, vocal
Michael Steel - bass, vocal

    1. Thanks for the thanks, Earthdog. I don't think you'll be disappointed by the disc -- a very groovy little compilation.
