THE DOGS D'AMOUR Heart Shape Skulls - Best Of 83-93 WEA (2004)
The Dogs DíAmour are one of those bands you either love or you hate. Front
man Tyla is one of those surviving sprirts of Rock Ďní Roll who drives his
on-and-off band through the good times and the bad.
All the old favourites are here on this 21 track retrospective. A melting
pot of glam, trash, The Faces, The Small Faces and a messy drug habit, the
best tracks are 'Heroine', the latter day 'Mr Barfly' and 'Whatís Happening
Here'. There some glaringly obvious omissions, like the classic 'Satellite
Kid' and the frighteningly good cover of the Small Facesí 'All Or Nothing'.
However, the promo videos for both these tracks are included on the
accompanying 7-track DVD.
All in all a good package and a must have for die-hard fans or a good
introduction to the band for those who donít know much about them.
