A Pocketful Of Dreams Special Edition - Big Fun

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 Planned as a 1989 single, it became a major club hit but was ultimately withdrawn in favour of "Blame It On The Boogie".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!
