Here are a few of your comments regarding the difficulty in obtaining Bay City Roller albums/CD's:

"I am trying to get "Dedication," "It's A Game" and "Rock and Roll Love Letter" on CD. Apparently, they fell off the face of the earth." Melody
"The album after "It's A Game" was the only one that I wanted and never got. I do not know why I did not get it, I just lost interest after Les." Babs
"The one they made with Pat in Japan and anything after Elevator with Duncan."P.Roach
"Any albums after "Strangers In The Wind" as I heard they broke up and after that I got too involved with my adult life."Julie
""Voxx" in any format. "Elevator" and "Ricochet" on CD because not released. I never knew about "Voxx" until 1997. Also I like "Strangers In The Wind" on CD, I found two of Duncan's LP's. I play them more these days."Michael
""Once Upon A Star," I cannot find the album." Jill
"I am still trying to catch up with everything after "Elevator."" Lelia
"I don't recognize three or four of them from the list. Maybe they were not available in Canada."Gisele
"I have most of the records but only their "Greatest Hits" in CD. I would love to have them all that way."Traci
"Everything after "Elevator." I did not even know they had anything after that, until I saw this website."Jeff
"I do not have any of Eric's works. I wish I had them all!!"Paula
"Anything past "Riccochet" and since "Karu Cuts" (Duncan and Woody's old band)."Emily
"I am working on getting Les' solo work from the 80's and 90's."Gail

Here Are A Few Of Your Acted Out BCR Stories:

"I named my cat Derek and of course, I wore all the regalia daily. My family fought over who "gets" each member."Kerri
"My friend and I used to practice screaming ready for a concert. It drove my parents mad. We also used to act out what we would say to our favorite Roller, if we actually met them. Remembering the things we said, I am pleased I did not meet them, LOL."Judith
"Went on the Gong Show dressed as Roller fans. Sang, "Gonna See The Rollers." Got gonged."Kathie
"Sewed plaid stripes down the side of my jeans (much to my mother's dismay.)" Gisele
"We would go downtown on Saturday nights, all dressed up in Roller gear and play our BCR music in the mall and sing." Midge
"Pretended to be married to them."Connie
"Had birthday parties for them, created a dance to IOWBWY. I wore Roller shirts everywhere and met up with other fans because of it. Had boxes of stuff collected from the US and UK (most lost now). I had animals/pets named after some; stayed up to watch and audio tape Midnight Special, American Bandstand, radio shows, etc. I even cut my hair like them." Jan H.
"Sang along with their songs and pretended I was part of the group."Jill
"I got up in front of my class in third grade and sang "Rock N' Roller" with a guitar that only had two or three strings on it."Jeff
"One Halloween I dressed up with an outfit that I made myself with a very red tartan and wide pant legs. I still have the picture and remember those times fondly."Laura
"I talked to them when they were recording "Riccochet" in New Jersey. I visited Pat's folks in Edinburgh. I lived in Edinburgh for four years. Some of my friends and I used to revisit places the Rollers stayed while in Charlotte, NC. We met them in 1979 when Duncan was with them. We met up with some of the folks that they travelled with. Fun times." Lynne
"My girlfriend Laura and I would act out that we met the Rollers."Cynthia
"Got four other kids to be the Bay City Rollers for a school gong show when I was in the fourth grade. I was the lead singer."Brent

Ahhh Those Physical Attributes Which Attracted You To Your Guy(s):

"The number one thing that attracted me to Eric were his blue eyes. So startling against that dark hair. There was just something about him that drove me insane. I have to admit, he still gets to me."Betsy
"Purely for the fun of the music. Duncan era, deeper and I beleive better music. Eric's writing at this time shines. My wife likes Les and Ian."Michael
"I think it must have been Woody's shy smile. But there was also something about his stomach that drove (drives) me crazy."Dana
"Pat's eyes and his boyish looks."Alli
"Leslie just oozes sex appeal and he was (and still is) so very sexy plus he is incredibly sexy."Traci
"Eric and Pat's eyes."Lynne
"The cleft in Stuart's chin."Franx
"Derek has that big beautiful smile and that sun-kissed blonde hair. Those sexy eyes. Mmmmmmmm."Kerri
"Alan and his smile. He also has a caring nature and the way he sings and talks make you go weak in the knees."Lesley
"Les' hair, smile and a great picture of him at a White Sox baseball game, plus his singing voice."Susan
"Ian is so adorable. There was one poster of him and the band making strawberry milkshakes. It was one of the most sexiest pictures of him I have ever seen. I was only ten or eleven at the time too."Melody
"I thought Duncan's voice was very appealing."BC
"Eric's eyes and butt."KM
"I was attracted to Alan's deep dark eyes."P.Roach
"I like Derek's hair, smile and his eyes. I think he is gorgeous!!!"Alisa
"Well, the only Rollers I have met was at the original Rollerfest. Ian is a really great guy. But Eric and Woody were tied for my favorite in my heart. Those blue eyes of Eric's could melt the biggest glacier in my heart and that boyish charm was just too cute!."Julie
"I loved Eric's puppy dog eyes and his teeth. I was only a little girl and a pre-teen. I did not know other parts of the body existed!"Lisa
"Alan's eyes and his mole."Lindy
"Les was (and still is) my favorite. I have always loved guys with dark hair and brown eyes. Luckily, my husband has dark hair and big, beautiful brown eyes."Joan

"Eric's eyes, Derek's smile and Alan's everything..."Sussi
"The Roller's smiles, eyes and friendliness...VOICE!!!"Stef
