Phil Harding Club Mixes Of The 80s Double Cd Of 25 Remastered Club Remixes And Rarities
With a CV resembling a 'Who's Who' of the music industry, remixer and producer, Phil Harding’s career spans over 30 years... from recording The Clash in the 70s, remixing and producing top club/dance and pop acts in the 80s and 90s, to recently working with Lamont Dozier in L.A. In the 80s, working out of a basement studio in the Pete Waterman-owned PWL studio complex (with production partner Ian Curnow), Phil Harding club mixes and productions dominated the dancefloors and club charts on an international scale. On this long-awaited, double-CD package (with 24-bit digital re-mastering) are 25 sought-after classic 80s remixes and rarities...

Previously unreleased tracks and mixes-JIMMY RUFFIN unreleased production | RICK ASTLEY (2 unreleased mixes including the original 'Never Gonna Give You Up' Club Mix + 2 unreleased Harding/Curnow productions) and a planned SINITTA 1990 re-launch with a 'Vogue'-style club sound.

Comprehensive colour booklet of in-depth research and analysis, mix commentary from Phil Harding, photos, an exclusive interview with Phil Harding and Ian Curnow together, as well as with artists featured on the compilation.

"Orchestrated by one of the music industry’s most revered remixers and producers, Phil Harding, ‘Club Mixes of the ‘80s’ showcases his 30+ career spanning years at the musical wheel.”  


"Sound engineer Phil Harding, a former member of the PWL team, takes us inside of the PWL studios, where no-name artists like Rick Astley and Klie Minogue were advocated to levels of recognition incomprehensible to the artist struggling to pay their dues in hopes of reaching similar fame and success.”

All Over The Place

Released on 20/09/10. All Over the Place was The Bangles' first full length album for Columbia Records. Released in 1984, the sound is lively and shows more Bangles collaboration. Although the album was not a commercial success, it gave them the chance to perform as an opening act for Cyndi Lauper and Huey Lewis And The News and brought the group to the attention of Prince, who would write Manic Monday , their first hit.

Two singles were released from this album, Hero Takes a Fall , which peaked outside the U.K. Top 40, and Going Down to Liverpool , written by Kimberley Rew of Katrina And The Waves, which won the Bangles the BPI Award, the British equivalent of the Grammy. The video for Going Down To Liverpool features Leonard Nimoy, who plays the part of the band's chauffeur.

Despite Straight Lines - Very Best Of
Released 27/11/08. At long last, 23 years after its original release, Marilyn's one and only album "Despite Straight Lines" is finally reissued. This is the first time on CD for this album. The album features Marilyn's four best selling singles including the number 4 smash "Calling Your Name". The album has 8 bonus tracks that include 2 mixes of "Calling Your Name" 12" promo mixes of "Cry And Be Free" (Gospel and Streisand styles) and the extended version of "Baby U Left Me In The Cold".

The CD booklet includes a UK Discography with all the accompanying sleeves and a biography of Marilyn's career. Marilyn emerged from the New Romantic movement in London at the end of the 1970's. As a face on the scene he forged a strong friendship with Boy George. An appearance in a Eurythmics video brought Marilyn extensive press attention and he soon signed a deal with Phonogram. Success was to follow with a string of self and co-written tunes but all too soon problems set in and Marilyn's career was over prematurely. His songwriting and artistic style means he'll always enjoy the status of being an 80's icon

Considered the premier U.K. soul band of the 80s and on to the 90s, Loose Ends was formed in 1981 with an original line-up of Carl McIntosh, Steve Nicholls and Jane Eugene.

The original 1985 UK album of SO WHERE ARE YOU? reached No. 13 on the pop charts with the club classic Hanging On A String (Contemplating) also reaching No. 13 on the singles chart, also topping the US R&B chart as a key cut on the US version of the group’s debut LP, A LITTLE SPICE (reissued on SMCR 5034 by Records in November 2011). Two further singles, Magic Touch and a cover of David Bowie s Golden Years were also UK chart makers. Tracks from SO WHERE ARE YOU? were used for the group’s third US release Zagora.

Like its processor, SO WHERE ARE YOU? was produced by Philadelphia-based Nick Martinelli and includes key cuts such as the classic track You Can't Stop The Rain were written by the trio.


"It was the group’s second album, 1985’s ‘So Where Are You?’ that catapulted Loose Ends into soul music’s major league. The set’s lead single was the amazing ‘Hangin On A String,’ which is arguably one of the greatest songs that has been penned by a home-grown act.”

The Bangles combined the chiming riffs and melodies of British Invasion guitar pop with a hint of the new wave. In the process, they became one of the handful of all-female bands of the '80s to win both critical and commercial success.
The critical success came first - with their self-titled debut EP and full-length album,All Over the Place - and popular success arrived once they polished their sound, added some synthesizers, and deviated slightly from their trademark jangling guitar hooks. Once they were selling at the platinum level,The Bangles didn't stay together long, but they left several pop gems behind them.
"Everything” is one of those records; released in 1988 it contains the worldwide number one ‘Eternal Flame’ and the top five single ‘In Your Room’.
This re-issue also contains rare B-Sides, some appearing for the first time on CD, The booklet is packed with lyrics and rare covers.
