How can an album released in 1981 still sound so incredibly fresh and modern? This reissue is a startling blend of funk, reggae, soul and synth pop, it contains some of Jones’ best-known songs including Pull Up To The Bumper, Demolition Man and her evocative cover of Walking In The Rain by Sydney’s own Flash and the Pan.

But what really strikes the listener is the total lack of filler. Every track – not just the singles – is a masterclass in flawless, sophisticated pop.

A bonus disc of remixes (many previously unreleased) sweetens the deal on this already excellent remastered album. (PH)
