Don't Stop Review

by William Ruhlmann

Chrysalis Records introduced American audiences to Billy Idol with this debut EP, which led off with Idol's big UK hit as part of Generation X (and one of the best power pop numbers ever), "Dancing With Myself." Also included were a faithful cover of Tommy James And The Shondells' "Mony Mony" (not the later chart-topping live version), "Untouchables," and "Baby Talk." With this short record, which stayed in the album charts over a year, Idol was established as a post-punk hard rock singer of considerable promise. (A 1983 reissue of Don't Stop featured an interview with Idol conducted by MTV VJ Martha Quinn.)
