1987 Big Trouble – Big Trouble

Big Trouble is the debut and only studio album from the female pop group Big Trouble, released in 1988.

Like the formation of 60s group The Monkees, Big Trouble was an all female pop group put together by TV executive Fred Silverman. The group consisted of vocalist Bobbie Eakes, bassist Julia Farey, keyboardist Rebecca Ryan and drummer Suzy Zarow. Shortly after their formation, the band signed to Epic Records and recorded an album. The album was released on vinyl and CD in America, the UK and Europe, although it remains out-of-print today.

The album was released to commercial failure, and therefore became the band’s only album. The lead single was “Crazy World” which peaked at #71 in America. The second single was “When the Love Is Good” which failed to make any impact, although it did peak at #83 in the UK. As a follow-up to the single, “Crazy World” was released in the UK shortly after, where it peaked at #96
