Ain't Nothing But A Party (The 12" Anthology) - Phil Fearon & Galaxy

Ain't Nothing But A Party (The 12" Anthology)

PLEASE NOTE THIS CD IS NOT RELEASED UNTIL THE 25TH NOVEMBER - THIS IS A PRE-ORDER & THE CD WILL NOT BE SENT OUT UNTIL THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE

"Ain’t Nothing But A Party" is the first-ever comprehensive compilation of 12" singles from 80s chart mainstays, post-disco synth soul pioneers and perennial floor fillers Phil Fearon and Galaxy.

Compiled with Phil’s blessing, this collection brings together the definitive extended versions of all his UK single releases issued on the Ensign label from 1982 to 1987. No less than five Top Twenty hits – ‘Dancing Tight’, ‘Wait Until Tonight (My Love)’, ‘What Do I Do?’, ‘Everybody’s Laughing’ and ‘I Can Prove It’ – feature alongside Phil’s cover of the Showstoppers’ ‘Ain’t Nothing But A House Party’ – an early UK House classic produced by Stock Aitken Waterman.

Digitally remastered direct from master tapes archived at Abbey Road, this collection features many mixes unavailable since their original release and available on CD for the first time. Showcasing the innovative post-disco synth-soul sound of Phil’s FJR Studios, it also boasts mix credits for the influential M & M team of John Morales and the late Sergio Munzibai, John Luongo and PWL’s Phil Harding and Pete Hammond.

The extensive booklet also features additional photos, a fully illustrated discography, lyrics and new sleeve notes written especially for this release.

Galaxy was the brainchild of former Kandidate member Phil Fearon and launched in 1982 with the club favourite ‘Head Over Heels’. Top Five chart success followed with the classics ‘Dancing Tight’ and ‘What Do I Do?’, all generated from Phil’s own home studio. A virtual one-man ‘hit factory’ in his own right, Phil went on to record at PWL with Stock Aitken Waterman before moving into song-writing and production work for other artists, notably Pepsi & Shirlie’s 1987 smash ‘Heartache’. In recent years, he has made a long-overdue return to performing and now makes regular live appearances.

"Ain’t Nothing But A Party" is a perfect party album, essential for all 80s aficionados and the latest in the long line of popular PWL-related reissues on Cherry Pop.

Go Ahead & Burn
Shout Records presents Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces, a combo who, in the golden age of Soul, in the summer of 1966, took their down-home Soul from the chittlin' circuit of the Deep South into the US top 30 with hit ballad "Searching For My Love".This landmark CD presents the "Searching For My Love" LP together with all of the group's singles for Checker, and some hard-to-find tracks from the vaults, as well as an accompanying essay by Clive Richardson.Bobby Moore has a long musical pedigree, and the Checker LP carries the 'hallmark' of the legendary Muscle Shoals Studio, having been produced by studio chief Rick Hall (later of his own FAME studios and label). Testimony indeed to the enduring quality of Southern Soul. Our Price: £9.95

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.

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.

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
