Spellbound: Expanded Edition - Amazulu

Spellbound: Expanded Edition
•    Spellbound, the second album from reggae-pop crossover sensations Amazulu, is issued on CD for the first time. This Special Edition also marks its first ever UK release.

•    Spellbound features the 1987 Top 40 cover of Tommy James & The Shondells' ‘Mony Mony’, and the subsequent singles ‘Wonderful World, Beautiful People’ and ‘My Heart Belongs To You’ (originally credited as a solo release from lead singer Annie Ruddock).

•    Production duties on Spellbound were handled by Kurtis Mantronik, Ronald Bell of Kool & The Gang and Barry Blue alongside longtime collaborators Andy Hill and Dennis Bovell. Bonus material on this release includes sought-after 12" mixes by PWL Mixmaster Pete Hammond and Clivillés & Cole, many on CD for the first time.

•    This Special Edition features sleeve notes from Annie and design by Bruno Tilley, who was responsible for most of the original Amazulu sleeves. The extensive booklet also features additional pictures, lyrics and discography.

•    Amazulu debuted on the indie Towerbell label in 1983, before signing with Island Records and scoring a succession of hits including ‘Excitable’, ‘Too Good To Be Forgotten’ and ‘Montego Bay’. By 1987, the band had slimmed down to a trio and moved to EMI, finally parting ways in 1988.

•    A great 'lost' album from a very fondly-remembered act, Spellbound is an essential listen for 80s aficionados and a welcome addition to the Cherry Pop catalogue.

A Pocketful Of Dreams Special Edition
Another essential release for pop aficionados, PWL boy band Big Fun's 1990 debut album receives the Special Edition treatment.

Featuring four classic Stock Aitken Waterman-produced hit singles - the Jacksons cover "Blame It On The Boogie", "Can't Shake The Feeling", "Handful Of Promises" and "Hey There Lonely Girl" – the album reached #7 on its original release, going gold.

Digitally re-mastered direct from the original PWL studio tapes, this Special Edition features seven exclusive bonus tracks.

A superb cover version of the Carole King classic "You've Got A Friend", recorded with fellow PWL star Sonia but unreleased until now, features together with the SAW-penned 1990 hit of the same title.

A host of sought-after 12" mixes, several on CD for the first time, include Big Fun's very first PWL recording: another King cover, "I Feel The Earth Move". Planned as a 1989 single, it became a major club hit but was ultimately withdrawn in favour of "Blame It On The Boogie".

The extensive CD booklet includes full lyrics, additional photos and discography, brand new sleeve notes and commentary from Big Fun's Phil Creswick.

Big Fun had built up a loyal following on the club scene before teaming up with SAW sent them straight to the top of the pop charts around the world. They supported Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue on the first two Hitman Roadshow tours of the UK in 1989, before headlining their own in 1990.

"A Pocketful Of Dreams" is the latest classic Hit Factory album to be reissued on Cherry Pop, following releases by Princess, Lonnie Gordon, Mandy Smith, the London Boys, Hazell Dean, Sinitta and Haywoode. Look out for more to come during 2010!

The Cool Scene At Cafe Bizarre

Punctuated by some bongo-led jazz along with some obscure noodling that throws authentic be bop next to groovy finger-clicking out takes. A offbeat mix of sounds and styles that gathers lewd humour and cool blowing for an hour-long journey into the past. Our Price: £2.49

Touch Me

"Touch Me", the classic 1986 debut album from perennial pop icon and pin-up Samantha Fox, is given a Deluxe Edition reissue on Cherry Pop.

"Touch Me" features four UK hit singles: the international smash "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" (#3 UK and #4 US), "Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me)" (#10 UK), "Hold On Tight" and "I’m All You Need". Immediately establishing Samantha’s signature pop-rock sound, the album was certified gold on its original release, reaching #17 in the UK and #24 in the US.
Digitally remastered direct from the master tapes, this Deluxe Edition brings together the original 10-track album with an incredible 27 bonus tracks across two CDs.

Presented together with Samantha’s later work and on CD for the very first time are her early recordings for Lamborghini Records with her first band SFX - "Rockin’ With My Radio", "Aim To Win" and "Holding". Bonus tracks also include rare B-sides and many sought-after 12" mixes, the majority of which have never before been released on CD.
Compiled with personal input from Samantha herself, the extensive booklet also features reversible cover art, many additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, full lyrics and new sleeve notes written especially for this release.

The only British female artist to score three Top Ten hits on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1980s, Samantha Fox made her name as the nation’s favourite Page Three girl before launching an enviable music career. The anthemic "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" became a global chart-topper in 1986 and was followed by a succession of hits, including several collaborations with both the legendary Stock Aitken Waterman and US hip-hop pioneers Full Force. Samantha remains a household name, with a new album planned for 2012 and live dates across Europe.

"Touch Me" coincides with accompanying Deluxe Editions of Sam’s other three Jive albums: 1987’s "Samantha Fox", 1989’s "I Wanna Have Some Fun" and 1991’s "Just One Night", and follows many other popular PWL-related reissues on Cherry Pop from artists such as Mel & Kim, Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia, Boy Krazy, Brother Beyond, Pepsi & Shirlie and O’chi Brown.

Press:-


"Her first album, Touch Me, was also her best with introductory single Touch Me (I Want Your Body) becoming a worldwide smash and paving the way her to have an extended career." Music Week, 03/08/12
