Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - Albums - (Reviews / Ratings)

On this page I have tried to compare and rate the releases from Transvision Vamp and tried to highlight which tracks I see as the most important on the individual releases.

 Rating: 7/10
Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - Baby I Don't Care (collection)
Title: Baby I Don't Care (collection)
 
Comments: 
You'll get all of their hits on this collection and also a few extra remixes: "Revolution Baby [Electra Glide Mix]", "Tell That Girl to Shut Up [Knuckle Duster Mix]" and "Baby I Don't Care [Abigail's Party Mix]". But again you'll miss gemms like "Trash City", "Pay The Ghosts" and "Pressure Times". Songs you can't live happily without.
Important Tracks: All of them

Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - Kiss Their Sons (collection)
Title: Kiss Their Sons (collection)
 
Comments: 
This is a farily good collection of Transvision Vamp songs. You'll get all their biggest hits. Unfortunately you'll also miss out on gemms like "Trash City", "Pay The Ghosts" and "Pressure Times". So my advice would be to buy the individual albums instead.
Important Tracks: All of them.

Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - Mixes (collection)
Title: Mixes (collection)
 
Comments: 
This is a japanese release that contains a collection single remixes. It is a good way to get your first Transvision Vamp remixes, but seriously it would be much better buying the individual cd singles, since you'll miss way too many cool b-sides, if you only buy this collection. It has no less than 5 different version of "(I Just Wanna) B With U" and that is perhaps a few too many considering what they could have put on instead.
Important Tracks: Most of the songs

Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - Little Magnets Vs. The Bubble Of Babble
Title: Little Magnets Vs. The Bubble Of Babble
 
Comments: 
Sadly enough the Transvision Vamp train only did 3 stops at the album station. This was their third and last album. To be honest it is also the weakest of the 3 albums. "(I Just Wanna) B With U" is a pretty good hit single, but in my opinion the 2 top tracks on this release is "Every Little Thing" and "Pressure Times". Again I'd have to say that this album is worth buying for these 2 tracks alone.
 
After this album the band broke up but Wendy James didn't leave the music world. She did a solo album and later formed her own band Racine. I'm not really sure what happened to the rest of the Transvision Vamp band members...
Important Tracks: (I Just Wanna) B With U, Ain't No Rules, If Looks Could Kill, Every Little Thing, Pressure Times

Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - The Complete 12´ers Collection Vol. 1
Title: The Complete 12"ers Collection Vol. 1
 
Comments: 
An easy way to get a bunch of remixes and b-sides. No reason wasting time looking for Vol. 2 because it never happened.

Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - Velveteen
Title: Velveteen
 
Comments: 
This was their second album and they hadn't lost any of their pace. This one is almost as great as the debut. It had the huge hit in "Baby I Don't Care", but actually my 2 favourites are "Pay The Ghosts" and "Bad Valentine". 2 excellent pop songs that makes this album worth every penny you'd have to pay for it.
 
Talking about Transvision Vamp never forget the singles and b-sides. In true eighties style they made tons of singles with lots of excellent b-sides and great remixes. Several live tracks can also be found so there is lots of cool stuff to go hunting for.
Important Tracks: Baby I Don't Care, The Only One, Landslide Of Love, Down On You, Born To Be Sold, Pay The Ghosts, Bad Valentine, Velveteen

Transvision Vamp / Wendy James / Racine - Pop Art
Title: Pop Art
 
Comments: 
I guess Transvision Vamp hit the same type of people who'd fallen in love with Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Westworld in the eighties. I've always seen these 3 bands as the ultimate eighties pop bands.
 
Transvision vamp is pop-rock and it is excellently performed. To top it off they had the sexiest girl alive fronting them: Wendy James. All boys adored her. Of course the music press hated Transvision Vamp and said she couldn't sing. Who fucking cares? It's pop-rock'n'roll and it's all about attitude, and she had tons of it. The first record starts off in style with the futuristic "Trash City" that certainly rocks. As a matter of fact this album is mostly hits all the way. "I Want Your Love" was a huge hit but really there are too many great tracks to mention them all.
Important Tracks: Trash City, I Want Your Love, Sister Moon, Psychosonic Cindy, Revolution Baby, Tell That Girl To Shut Up, Andy Warhol's Dead, Sex Kick
