The Rollers recorded three albums in a grasp towards artistic legitimacy between 1978 and 1981. His (Faure’s) first outing with the band, “Elevator”, turned out to be an incredible collection of finely tuned power pop. At the time, audiences failed to take notice.
Realizing that they needed to move quickly on another album, outtakes from the “Elevator” sessions were salvaged, embellished and eventually used for the bulk of their follow up, “Voxx”. Arista chose not to release “Voxx’ in the states or in the UK. Presuming that since BCR’s biggest fanbase was in Japan, the Asian market was their natural target.
“Ricochet”, The Rollers’ final offering is (was), at best, a lukewarm affair. Aside from a handful of strong tracks, the album is relatively forgettable. Within a few years, the original lineup reunited to the delight of their massive Japanese following. (Exerpted from Robots for Ronnie
