Cookin’ On The Roof - Roman Holliday

Cookin’ On The Roof
ROMAN HOLLIDAY were an early 1980s pop band who mixed swing jazz into their sound to great effect.
In 1983, the band scored a memorable hit single with ‘Don’t Try To Stop It’, which peaked at No. 14 in the UK and made the US Billboard Top 75.
Debut album COOKIN’ ON THE ROOF reached the UK Top 40 and also graced the US Billboard listings, opening with their hit but also including the band’s earlier, minor hit ‘Stand By’ and subsequent Top 40 hit ‘Motormania.’
This is the first time that COOKIN’ ON THE ROOF has been on CD in the UK (it was only previously issued in Japan). It’s remastered from the original tapes with six bonus tracks.
Original members of ROMAN HOLLIDAY are helping out with this long-overdue reissue, contributing rare photos and pictures for the booklet as well as being involved with the sleeve-notes.

FLM
Released on 18/10/10. One of the best-remembered acts of the 80s, Cockney sisters Mel & Kim Appleby instantly conquered dance floors, charts and hearts around the world with their style, personality and a string of perfect pop anthems. Their classic album "F.L.M." is now given a much anticipated Deluxe Edition 2CD reissue on Cherry Pop.

Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, the album reached #3 on its original release in April 1987, going platinum in the UK and topping the charts internationally with sales in excess of three million copies. "F.L.M." features three UK Top Ten hits Showing Out (Get Fresh At The Weekend), the classic #1 Respectable and the title track. Digitally re-mastered and compiled from original master tapes archived at Abbey Road and Pete Waterman's PWL Studios, this release features no less than nineteen exclusive bonus tracks across two discs, including the 1988 Top Ten hit, That's The Way It Is and its self-penned B-side, You Changed My Life. Both tracks are included alongside the "F.L.M." album for the first time ever.

Kim Appleby has generously contributed an exclusive commentary to this release. The extensive booklet also features a reversible cover, an illustrated discography, additional photos and brand new sleeve notes from PWL consultant Tom Parker. Mel & Kim s debut single, Showing Out, hit #3 in November 1986, and in February 1987 Respectable became the first Stock Aitken Waterman composition to top the charts. Combining a streetwise pop sensibility with transatlantic house grooves, Mel & Kim became a global sensation. But at the height of their fame, Mel was diagnosed with cancer. Facing relentless media attention with dignity and characteristic humour while she underwent treatment, the duo released a brand new single in February 1988 That's The Way It Is.

Tragically, Mel's health deteriorated and she passed away in January 1990, aged just 23. "F.L.M." is the latest Hit Factory classic to be reissued on Cherry Pop, following a host of popular releases from Big Fun, Boy Krazy, Hazell Dean, Lonnie Gordon, Haywoode, the London Boys, Princess, Sinitta, Mandy Smith and Sonia.

Gun
Race With The Devil, reached the UK Top Ten in December 1968, it catapulted power trio the Gun from the bowels of the London underground club circuit to the forefront of the British pop scene. Released a couple of months later, the group s self-titled debut album boasted an equally dazzling, idiosyncratic combination of hard rock ferocity and striking orchestral arrangements, and it can now be seen as a major stepping stone in the gradual metamorphosis of late 60s psychedelic rock into what would become known as heavy metal. This newly re-mastered reissue features contemporaneous single releases, rare photos and fresh quotes from founder member Paul Gurvitz.
