In 1980, guitarists Susanna Hoffs and Vicki Peterson and drummer Debbi Peterson formed the Bangles in a Brentwood, California garage. They did so based on two crucial elements: their common love for rock’s golden age (“Growing up loving the same music has always been the glue for the Bangles,” says Susanna), and the crystalline sound they quite naturally created when they blended their voices (“The chemistry was there instantaneously. It just clicked,” Debbi recalls).

The band released their first full-length album, All Over The Place in '84, with the singles "Hero Takes A Fall" and "Going Down To Liverpool," making a splash on college radio. Opening for Cyndi Lauper's '84 tour exposed them to an ever-widening audience, and helped their 1985 album, Different Light make a huge impact. Featuring the hits "If She Knew What She Wants," the Prince-penned "Manic Monday," and the smash dance track "Walk Like An Egyptian," the Bangles rocketed to superstardom.

In '87, the Bangles recorded a hard rocking cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade Of Winter" for the Less Than Zero soundtrack that rocketed to #2 on the charts. In early '88, the Bangles released Everything, with two more chart hits: the rocking "In Your Room" and the seminal ballad "Eternal Flame," which went to Billboard's #1 spot, becoming the fifth largest-selling single of 1989. 

By the time The Bangles Greatest Hits was issued in 1990, the band had already went their separate ways. The 14-song retrospective broke sales records in Britain, charting in the UK Top 10 for an incredible 97 weeks, peaking as the #4 album in the country. This recording has been mastered by the K2 HD format of 24-bit 100kHz, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats!
