The Lambrettas were at the forefront of the Mod Revival of 1979/1980. Discovered by Pete Waterman, the band signed to Elton John’s Rocket label and enjoyed significant chart success. Their biggest hit was a cover of The Coasters Poison Ivy, recorded with a nod to the prevailing 2-Tone trend. The single peaked at No. 7 in March 1980. The Lambrettas charted again with the follow-up, Da-a-a-ance, hit No. 12 that May. Debut LP Beat Boys In The Jet Age peaked at No. 28. The band issued several more singles and a second LP, Ambience, before disbanding in 1982.

After the sad death of original single Jez Bird, a new line-up of The Lambrettas went back out on the road in 2010 to a enthusiastic response. This 2-CD set boasts everything that The Lambrettas recorded for Rocket between 1979 and 1982. This material has been out of circulation for several years now, with the previous such collection commanding top prices on Amazon and eBay.

This is the first time that their hit debut album has been presented as a Deluxe Edition.

Disc 1 contains the entire debut album plus several bonus tracks from contemporaneous singles A’s and B’s. Disc 2 offers second album Ambience, once again swelled by non-LP material. The sleeve-notes offer a fresh insight into the Lambrettas story from original guitarist Doug Sanders, who now fronts the band.
