Stock, Aitken and Waterman – The 80s Albums
This article is from 80sNostalgia.com. Click the title to hop over there.
I decided to collect every Stock, Aitken and Waterman album from the 80s. Why? Because, for me, SAW produced what I consider to be the best music in the 80s. I wasn’t into the moody synth scene of the early 80s, and although I had a Madness, a Shakin Stevens and an Adam And The Ants album, they never really captivated me in the way Pop music did.
I had a huge revelation a few years after the 80s ended. I only realised how good 80s music was in the 90s, when I realised how bad 90s music was. Aside from the SAW tracks that kept being pumped out, I didn’t really find anything that caught my attention.
Anyway, after an evening of research, and few hot Vimtos to keep my energy up, I determined there were 35 Stock, Aitken and Waterman albums that were released between 1984 and 1989. (Pete Waterman had been involved in song production for years prior to 1984, but I was only looking for albums which were part of the combined SAW legacy.)
I’ll use this chronological list to mark off the titles I manage to find, using *. I’ll try to add details of each album I get on here too, although I’ll probably end up just adding details to Twitter. Follow along here – The Twitters
