SHOWADDYWADDY, the group that had more hits in the 1970s than any other act, celebrates the 45th Anniversary of their debut hit single Hey Rock And Roll on 19th April 2019 with the release of SHOWADDYWADDY: GOLD on the Crimson label.

Released in two formats - as a 3CD set featuring 61 tracks including all the band’s 23 Top 40 hits, alongside album and concert favourites and as a 16 track LP, pressed on heavyweight Gold colour vinyl which includes the band’s best-known hits amongst which are nine Top Ten singles and their number one million seller Under The Moon Of Love.

SHOWADDYWADDY were formed in 1973 in Leicester from two groups – Choise and Golden Hammers. Choise comprising Dave Bartram, Trevor Oakes, Al James and Romeo Challenger wrote and performed original material along with a few covers – some of their original material was performed by SHOWADDYWADDY. The Hammers, a covers band, consisted of Buddy Gask, Russ Field, Rod Deas and Malcolm Allured.

In 1973 the band were asked if they wanted to be on New Faces, a TV talent show. They won one programme in the series and were runners up in the All Winners’ Final, which was broadcast just before New Year’s Eve 1973. Record companies raced to sign them, but they had already done a deal with Bell Records, the home of the Bay City Rollers and Gary Glitter.

Their first single Hey Rock And Roll was released on 19 April 1974 and reached number two in the UK charts. SHOWADDYWADDY then hit the UK charts another 22 times until late 1982. These included 10 Top Ten singles and one number one racking up a total of 2009 weeks on the singles chart – making them one of the most successful single groups of all time.

Various line ups of the band have continued to tour over the years although five of the original eight members remained in the band until 2008.

Now 45 years on, fans can celebrate the band tagged as “the hardest working band in the music industry” with the release on 19 April 2019 of SHOWADDYWADDY: GOLD
