Rewind: Good Stuff - The B-52's (1992)

Good Stuff (Promo Video)
US Chart #28
UK Chart #21

Good Stuff was the 6th Studio Album from The B-52's and the first (and only) without Cindy Wilson (she took some time out in 1990 and would rejoin the band some years later). It would also be the last Studio Album from the band for 16 years until Funplex appeared in 2008!

A couple of compilation albums would be released and a few new songs appeared here and there in that time period.

I had felt that The B-52's had gained some new momentum with the release of the brilliant Cosmic Thing album in 1989 and was hoping it was to continue with this one but whilst the band didn't really stop playing shows etc the recording process did dry up (apart from a couple of singles) which is a real shame I think as on Good Stuff they had found a new funky edge to their sound courtesy no doubt to the presence of Nile Rodgers.
