One Night Stand - ABD Records - 1987
”One Night Stand” is actually re-recordings of their older material featuring only Cyril Jordan and George Alexander from the original band. The group still play a tight and clear-sounding rock with fine vocals. The album is also heavily influenced by the 1980s tendency to put the drums far forward in the sound-picture, which sounded right at the time, but which today can be a bit strenuous.
Four of the songs written by groupmembers themselves, and they are all strong; especially "Slow Death" and "Shake Some Action" I would not hesitate to call classics. The other songs are also sturdy and fit well with the group's rock sound. The Hoodoo Gurus' "Bittersweet" quite simply sounds like a Flamin' Groovies song.
Versions of the album are available with bonus tracks recorded around the same time, with titles like ”Backtracks” or ”Collection” . Strong recordings like "Way Over My Head" (a new original song), "Shaking" and an excellent remake of "You Tore Me Down" are attractive additions.
