The original 1983 7" pressing of Popsicles' "These Are The Good Times", pressed up by the band themselves, is rarer than rocking horse droppings. A quick search of the Internet found two on sale for a cool L1,200 a-piece. Thankfully, DJ Fryer's Athens of the North has seen to give it a much-deserved reissue. "These Are The Good Times" is a particularly good example of early '80s boogie-soul, less reliant on synthesizers than some other records of the period. It's warm, soulful and full of great musicianship. Flipside "Little Rocker", which was on the A-side of the 1983 pressing, is a little slower and synth-heavy, sounding like an eyes-wide-shut end of night classic in the making.
