La Toya Jackson
When you hear the name La Toya Jackson all sorts of thoughts spring to mind. Her nude appearances in Playboy, shopping with exotic snakes draped around her shoulders, tell-all books, psychic hotlines and all manner of bizarre stories reported in the tabloid newspapers of the late 1980s and early 90s. Scandal and intrigue have always surrounded La Toya, from her radical transformation from the Jackson's shy sister into a worldwide sex symbol, to her recent re-emergence as a key supporter of her brother Michael during his 2005 trial. The last thing that probably springs into most people's minds is her music. There's a lot more to Grammy Award winning La Toya than just her body-she has a lot of soul too. In this, her 1980 debut album, listen out for ‘Night Time Lover', produced by her brother Michael; the exquisite ‘My Love Has Passed You By', featuring Stevie Wonder on harmonica; ‘Are You Ready', written by Billy Ocean; and the lead single ‘If You Feel The Funk'. The first, ever British release of La Toya Jackson's self-titled album, over 25 years after it was first released in America and Europe in 1980. Including contributions from her brother Michael, sister Janet, Stevie Wonder and Billy Ocean, this is the first release from Cherry Red Records new imprint Cherry Pop, committed to rediscovering the best 80's pop albums and artists.

Goddess

'Goddess' is a classic example of the changing face of pop music in the late 80's early 90's, by fusing styles, samples, beats and hooks as perfectly illustrated by their hit single 'Hippychick’.

'Goddess' is a classic example of the changing face of pop music in the late 80's early 90's, by fusing styles, samples, beats and hooks as perfectly illustrated by their hit single 'Hippychick’.

The CD features the 12 tracks of the original album release plus four bonus tracks.

The CD features the #8 UK smash 'Hippychick' which also reached the top 20 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and the US Hot Dance Club Play chart, outselling Delite's Groove Is In The Heart which was released at the same time.

 

The bonus tracks are: Hippychick - Never Trust A Hippy. The result of a studio accident, when a piece of sampling machinery broke and the stuttered samples over the top of the breaks became the mix that broke Hippychick with the loved-up, E-d out Brits who holidayed in the Med in 1990.Scorpio Rising - the story of a man who got his ultimate, final kicks watching a his wife have sex with a stranger through a two way mirror as he gradually chokes to death.  Very limited release as a bonus track for the cassingle release of Out Of My Mind. 1st time on CD.Keep The Faith - a pre-Things Can Only Get Better tune written to keep spirits up in the darkest days of Thatcher's rule in the late 80s.  Never previously released, although it was played live a few times. 1st time on CD.Never Stop - originally part of the Goddess album, ended up as a USA-only B side. Another feminist anthem-on-a-motorbike.
