Hit Collection Review

by James Christopher Monger

The Hooters may not have burned long, but they certainly burned bright. The Philadelphia outfit's jubilant blend of new wave, folk, and radio-friendly pop/rock hit a nerve in the mid-'80s before flickering out in the predawn of grunge. This budget-priced German collection pales in comparison to Sony International's Best of the Best: Definitive Collection, but the band's three big radio hits ("And We Danced," "Day by Day," and "Johnny B.") are here, as well as the excellent singles "Satellite," "Karla with a K," and "All You Zombies." That said, the absence of "Where Do the Children Go" and "500 Miles" makes this overview far from complete.
