Brand X Xtrax

Brand X  Xtrax

(1986)  Passport label.  Purchased used in 1989 at Record Surplus.  This is a Best of album.  I own it because Phil Collins is on this album.  However tracks on this record are from Non-Phil Collins Brand X releases including: Masques (1978) and Do They Hurt? (1980).  I guess there was a time when Phil was too busy to be in the band after all.

SIDE ONE

  1. Don’t Make Waves  (5:28)
  2. Blackmoon  (4:48)
  3. Maybe I’ll Lend You Mine Anyway  (2:09)
  4. Cambodia  (4:31)
  5. Hate Zone  (4:41)

SIDE TWO

  1. Soho  (3:47)
  2. Nuclear Burn  (6:25)
  3. Ipaneamia  (4:30)
  4. Nightmare Patrol (Live)  (7:50)

Solid tracks on this album include Cambodia and Hate Zone.  Another ripping guitar performance by John Goodsall on both.  Hate Zone has such a Jeff Beck quality to it with a heavy bass performance by Percy Jones.

This is the last Brand X album in my collection.  It was a treat to listen to these again.
