Darts were a nine-piece British doo-wop revival band that achieved chart success in the late 1970s and early 1980s. With four singers, five backing musicians and a repertoire that mixed '50s nostalgia with punky '70s energy, Darts had it all. Hits like `Daddy Cool', `Come Back My Love', `The Boy From New York City' and `It's Raining' established them as ones to watch, while they were so hot live that in 1978 they sold more tickets in the UK than any other act. This package contains all the hits, stage favorites and more. This collection features highlights from across four hit albums including two Top 10 albums as well as six Top 10 singles. The Darts is still in the Top 500 selling list according to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles.
