Maid In England - Divine

Maid In England
DIVINE (born Harris Glenn Milstead) was a drag performer who came to prominence as a cult movie star appearing in several John Waters films such as Pink Flamingos, Polyester and Hairspray.
In 1979 Divine released the dance single "Born To Be Cheap”, and although the track didn’t make a huge impact it started a new chapter in his career where he released a succession of camp and fun dance hits which filled the floors of predominantly gay club nights throughout the 80’s.
The compilation MAID IN ENGLAND, released in 1988, was the all-round performers fourth and last LP and features several of Divine’s Hi-NRG and Disco hits including the 1984 UK top 20 hit ‘You Think You’re A Man’ as well as ‘I’m So Beautiful’ (both produced by Stock/Aitken/Waterman) and re-mixes of ‘Walk Like A Man’ and Sam Cooke’s ‘Twistin’ The Night Away’.
DIVINE is hugely respected cult figure in both the film and music world and still a great inspiration to many people due to his exuberant persona and performances.
Cherry Pop is very proud to present MAID IN ENGLAND, expertly remastered and complete with liner notes and bonus tracks.
MAID IN ENGLAND is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Dance, Disco and Pop fans out there!

PWL - From The Factory Floor (Expanded Edition)
To the modern pop world, Stock, Aitken and Waterman have taken on something of a legendary status in recent years. The PWL label and studios produced so many hits in the 1980s that their name became synonymous with success, and they created the template so expertly worked today by their protégée Simon Cowell today is undeniable. From Elton John’s tea boy to successful record producer, Phil Harding’s career spans over 30 years, ranging from recording The Clash in the 70s to producing hit singles for East 17 and Boyzone in the 90s. Phil played a key role at PWL Studios, Pete Waterman’s vision for a ‘British Motown’, alongside the legendary Stock, Aitken and Waterman production team, whose Hit Factory productions and mixes sold over 30 million units around the world, via a surprisingly diverse CV of artists, including ABC, RICK ASTLEY, BANANARAMA, BAND AID II, BASIA, CHIC, CLIMIE FISHER, THE COOL NOTES, DEAD OR ALIVE, HAZELL DEAN, DEPECHE MODE, DIVINE, DOLLAR, JASON DONOVAN, EIGHTH WONDER, ERASURE, FIVE STAR, THE FOUR TOPS, LONNIE GORDON, DEBBIE HARRY, THELMA HOUSTON, IMAGINATION, THE JACKSON FIVE, JESUS JONES, MATT BIANCO, MEL & KIM, KYLIE MINOGUE, GARY MOORE, NITZER EBB, PET SHOP BOYS, PRINCESS, CLIFF RICHARD, DIANA ROSS, SINITTA, JIMMY SOMERVILLE, SONIA, JERMAINE STEWART, DONNA SUMMER, THE THREE DEGREES, T'PAU, JOHN TRAVOLTA & OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN and VOICE OF THE BEEHIVE. Refreshingly and affectionately frank, ‘PWL - From The Factory Floor’ tells the inside story of one of the most successful and fast-paced music studios of all time. Phil’s pivotal role provides a uniquely broad perspective, extending from the top of the organisation, mixing many classic SAW hits, down to the bottom , training up-and-coming engineers, as well as involvement in the creative, business (and diplomatic!) aspects of being a critically-acclaimed producer in his own right and developing a profile and client base under the management of Pete Waterman. After a sold-out limited release in 2009, the book has undergone extensive development into this Expanded Edition, and contains a wealth of new material. Highlights include Phil’s behind-the-scenes journey through the eventful rise (and fall) of PWL, commentary on the working styles and sounds covered during PWL’s history, detailed recollections of specific, classic PWL mixes, in-depth interviews on working with some of the most significant artists of the time, a comprehensive guide to the south London studio building and its evolution, an A-to-Z of PWL staff, a fascinating day in the life photo tour from recently rediscovered home video footage, Phil’s PWL discography - a comprehensive guide to his many hundreds of releases, and a full review of Phil and his fellow producer Ian Curnow’s extensive personal archives and master tapes (including, for the first time, details on many PWL projects that remain unreleased and previously forgotten), and a new Harding/Curnow interview, looking back on their time working at PWL . The book also takes in the technicalities of studio work, including a detailed case study of the mixing of a No. 1 single in the form of Kylie’s Hand On Your Heart, and information on the cutting edge technology and techniques used in making the studio a world leader. This, along with the inclusion of many previously-unseen photographs, makes ‘PWL From The Factory Floor - Expanded Edition’ a must-read for 80s, club, dance and pop devotees, contemporary music followers, studio technicians and creators and those with any interest in the extreme highs and lows that only pop music can provide. Phil is still an in-demand writer, producer, mix engineer, guest speaker and lecturer. He speaks and lectures at Universities and Colleges around the UK, recently with Pete Waterman, and is currently Vice-Chairman of the Music Producers Guild and Chairman (MPG) of the Joint Audio and Media Education Service (JAMES). He is regularly featured and interviewed in music production magazines and websites and is remembered fondly by just about everybody who has worked with him. A rarity indeed in his business!

A double-CD package, 'PHIL HARDING CLUB MIXES OF THE 80s' of 25 digitally-remastered classic 80s remixes and rarities is now being released as a companion to the book - featuring ABC | DIANA ROSS | HOLLY JOHNSON | RICK ASTLEY | BLOW MONKEYS | DEAD OR ALIVE | EIGHTH WONDER & THE PET SHOP BOYS | IMAGINATION | THE FOUR TOPS | FIVE STAR | MICHAEL JACKSON WITH THE JACKSON 5 | GODLEY & CREME | BASIA (of MATT BIANCO) | JIMMY RUFFIN and more (Cherry Pop label - Cat No: CRPOPD100) <<

Shine
22 years after its intended release we are releasing Five Star's final album 'Shine' for its long awaited official UK release as a special edition.
This single CD collection features the ten original album tracks plus six bonus track versions of the title single 'Shine'.
The bonus remixes of ‘Shine' include the New Jack Mix Edit / Glamour Rap Mix / Slick Hop Extended Mix / New Jack Mix featuring Def Jef / The Glamour Mix & Slick Hop Boom Mix.
Many of the tracks are appearing on CD for the very first time.
Whilst copies were heavily imported around the time of the 'Shine' single release, the album failed to secure a proper UK release. This Cherry Pop release is its first full UK release.
The CD booklet contains comprehensive sleeve notes, including interviews with several contributing songwriters Michael Jay, Marva King and Zac Harmon and, a brand new exclusive interview with Five Star’s Doris Pearson.
Five Star were the youngest act to top the album chart with the million-seller Silk & Steel.
Five Star were awarded Top British Group in Smash Hits magazine and at the 1987 Brit Awards.
The band are newly reformed and are celebrating their 30th anniversary.
The Five Star story began in 1983 when the children of reggae musician Buster Pearson decided to form their own pop group. Under their father's watchful managerial eye, they signed to his own label Tent Records. Their debut album "Luxury Of Life" was released in August 1985 and peaked at #12 in the album charts. Their second album, the #1 hit "Silk & Steel" followed in August 1986 and became triple platinum. In the 1980s the band recorded 21 hit singles, 11 of them top 20, and 4 original albums followed by a Greatest Hits album in 1989. The band, likened predictably to the Jackson 5 were one of the leading UK pop acts of the decade. This album was the band's sixth album. It was recorded at various studios including Michael Jackson's own MMJ Studios in California.
