All Over the Place is the debut studio album by American pop rock band the Bangles. Released May 23, 1984 through Columbia Records, the sound is lively and shows more Bangles collaboration and fewer keyboard overdubs than were used later on their more commercially successful albums. Although the album was not a major commercial success — peaking at #80 on the Billboard 200 albums chart — and didn’t produce a hit, it sold respectably, mostly through steady airplay on college stations. It also gave them the chance to perform as an opening act for Cyndi Lauper and Huey Lewis and the News, and brought the group to the attention of Prince, who would write “Manic Monday”, their first hit.
Two singles were released from this album: “Hero Takes a Fall”, which peaked outside the UK Top 40, and “Going Down to Liverpool”, written by Kimberley Rew of Katrina and the Waves, which won the Bangles the BPI Award, the British equivalent of the Grammy. The video for “Going Down to Liverpool” features Leonard Nimoy, who plays the part of the band’s chauffeur.
The album was reissued in 2008 on the Wounded Bird Records label (WOU 9220) adding a bonus track: “Hero Takes a Fall” (Single Remix). In 2010, UK label Cherry Pop re-released the album with one bonus track, their cover of The Grass Roots “Where Were You When I Needed You”, which was originally released as the b-side to “Hero Takes a Fall”.
