This great 1960's Liverpool band recorded 2 albums for Sire Records during 1979-1980. The Searchers were among the finest band to come out of Liverpool, and they inspired many later bands with their exquisite vocals and their guitar-sounds.

These come-back power-pop recordings are great too, though they do not quite match their greatest 1960`s records.

Most of the songs are fine! The vocals still great! The guitar-style still there. My only objection is the sound - the production. I think these recordings lacks the warmth of their earlier work. I think a better production could have made these fine recordings really great.

From the 1979 album songs like "Switchboard Susan", "It`s Too Late" and "Lost in Your Eyes" stand-out!
