Burning Bridges - Naked Eyes

Burning Bridges
A long overdue reissue of synth-pop pioneers Naked Eyes' 1983 debut album "Burning Bridges" plus bonus tracks.
"Burning Bridges” featured singles that charted both sides of the Atlantic. Their cover of the Bacharach & David's classic ‘Always Something There To Remind Me’ peaked at #8 and its follow up ‘Promises Promises’ reached 11 - both in the U.S. Hot 100 chart.
This special edition contains 12 tracks from the original album plus six essential bonus tracks.
 
The bonus material features two 12" versions of ‘Promises Promises’ including Jellybean's extended version featuring his - then unknown - girlfriend Madonna on backing vocals. Tony Mansfield's American Remix of ‘Always Something There To Remind Me’, the US 7" remix of ‘Promises Promises’ and two b/sides ‘Pit Stop’ and ‘Sweet Poison’.
The sleeve notes have been written by Michael Silvester who talked at length with Pete Byrne about the naked Eyes story. The CD booklet features many of the original sleeves and a full UK discography.

Keep Your Distance
A long overdue reissue of the 1987 #1 debut album by Curiosity Killed The Cat. It's an essential album for all collectors of 80's pop.

This 16 track CD, features the 9 tracks of the original album, 4 extended 12" mixes from the single releases that were included on a subsequent reissue of the album plus 3 bonus tracks to make this a very comprehensive collection of the band's most successful material. The album was a number 1 UK album in 1987 and remained on the charts for 24 weeks.
This collection features 4 hit singles including Down To Earth #3, Misfit #7, Ordinary Day #11 and Free #54. The 3 bonus tracks featured are b/sides Man, Corruption
(Dub) available on CD for the first time and Bullet.
A comprehensive booklet featuring sleeve notes and a full UK discography featuring many of their sleeves. Curiosity Killed The Cat fronted by the charismatic Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot enjoyed their first hit with Down To Earth in December of 1986. With their James Dean looks, vibrant
street energy and cutting edge soul pop sound it seemed for a while as if Curiosity Killed the Cat may have possessed, a perfect recipe for success in the late eighties pop market.

Initially the band were labelled as a boy band but this ignores the band's undoubted musical backbone and talent. Hit singles were to follow as were two successful albums, their musical and commercial high point being their debut album and the focus of this reissue Keep Your Distance.

Nona Hendryx

Released on 27/09/10. Nona Hendryx was one third of the pop/soul act LaBelle, and by far and away made the hippest solo records of any of the other members of the group, Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash.


After LaBelle called it quits in 1976. Hendryx released her self-titled debut record, which was an amazingly strong amalgam of soul and hard rock.

Wearing skin tight pants, black leather and brandishing a Bowie knife on the LP cover she announced her intentions loud and clear but neither record company or radio at that time knew what to do with this African American woman with a huge voice comfortable and capable of singing hard rock as well as soul music.


Nona worked with Talking Heads as back-up singer and fell in with a hip crowd of musicians and her association with David Byrne led to her working with Bill Laswell who helped her put together her second solo album. Entitled NONA it sparked greater interest in Nona s considerable talents and her solo career flourished.
