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 Planned as a 1989 single, it became a major club hit but was ultimately withdrawn in favour of "Blame It On The Boogie".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

Strange Cruise
The first time on CD for this much requested album by Strange Cruise - a band fronted by ex-Visage frontman Steve Strange and Wendy Cruise (Wu) formerly of The Photos.

This CD features the original 10 track album that was released in 1986 on EMI Records. It was produced by Mike Hedges - best known for his work with The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Beautiful South and Manic Street Preachers amongst others.

There are two bonus tracks - 12" version of ‘Rebel Blue Rocker’ - Rebel Mix and b/side ‘Silver Screen Queen’. · The album has been remastered. · The CD booklet will feature the original front cover and a UK discography of Strange Cruise and Visage.

This is the first time these tracks have appeared on CD. · This release follows our reissues of Visage's "The Anvil” (CRPOP6) and "Beat Boy” (CRPOP14). · Following the demise of Visage, Steve Strange formed Strange Cruise with ex Photos singer Wendy Cruise (Wu). Other members included Steve and Gary Barnacle who'd contributed to Visage's 3rd album "Beat Boy”. The band recorded the "Strange Cruise” album in Germany under the experienced production skills of Mike Hedges. The band released the album and two singles before disbanding, complaining of the releases not being supported by the record label. There is still much interest in the recorded output of Steve Strange and Visage.

RELEASE DATE: 27TH JANUARY 2014

Spellbound: Expanded Edition
•    Spellbound, the second album from reggae-pop crossover sensations Amazulu, is issued on CD for the first time. This Special Edition also marks its first ever UK release.

•    Spellbound features the 1987 Top 40 cover of Tommy James & The Shondells' ‘Mony Mony’, and the subsequent singles ‘Wonderful World, Beautiful People’ and ‘My Heart Belongs To You’ (originally credited as a solo release from lead singer Annie Ruddock).

•    Production duties on Spellbound were handled by Kurtis Mantronik, Ronald Bell of Kool & The Gang and Barry Blue alongside longtime collaborators Andy Hill and Dennis Bovell. Bonus material on this release includes sought-after 12" mixes by PWL Mixmaster Pete Hammond and Clivillés & Cole, many on CD for the first time.

•    This Special Edition features sleeve notes from Annie and design by Bruno Tilley, who was responsible for most of the original Amazulu sleeves. The extensive booklet also features additional pictures, lyrics and discography.

•    Amazulu debuted on the indie Towerbell label in 1983, before signing with Island Records and scoring a succession of hits including ‘Excitable’, ‘Too Good To Be Forgotten’ and ‘Montego Bay’. By 1987, the band had slimmed down to a trio and moved to EMI, finally parting ways in 1988.

•    A great 'lost' album from a very fondly-remembered act, Spellbound is an essential listen for 80s aficionados and a welcome addition to the Cherry Pop catalogue.

Dancing Marquis
FEATURING COLLABORATIONS WITH TONY VISCONTI, JARVIS COCKER, CARL BARAT and DANIELZ

•    New release ‘Dancing Marquis’ compiles together the 6 tracks released previously on two strictly limited edition vinyl EPs and adds another two brand new tracks and two exclusive and stunning remixes.

•    In 2013, Marc Almond realised the ambition of a lifetime when he attended a few recording sessions with the legendary record producer Tony Visconti, famous for his work with David Bowie, Hazel O'Connor, T-Rex, The Moody Blues and Morrissey. The stunning results of their unique collaboration are the two tracks 'Burn Bright' / 'The Dancing Marquis' that kick-off this CD.

•    Next to producer Tris Penna, Tony Visconti also lends a helping hand on string arrangements and mixing duties on two further tracks, ‘Tasmanian Tiger’, and ‘Death of a Dandy’, the latter inspired by the recent death of Soho’s tragic artist Sebastian Horsley and which also features special guest Danielz from T-Rex tribute ‘T.Rextasy’.

•    Carrying on in this collaborative vein, the CD also includes the talents of Martin McCarrick (Siouxsie And The Banshees, Therapy?) contributing  cello on the hearteningly buoyant 'Burn Bright' and strings on the title-track 'The Dancing Marquis', a song that Marc Almond wrote 'with Henry Paget 5th Marquess of Anglesey in mind'.   

•    Jarvis Cocker brings to the mix an infectious electro-pop number he wrote especially for Marc, ‘Worship Me Now’, where he also features as a special guest on backing vocals and on the production duties with Jason Buckle (All Seeing I). Two additional dance remixes of ‘Worship Me Now’ are also included exclusively on this release. ‘Love Is Not On Trial’ sees Marc Almond continuing his collaboration with Carl Barat (Libertines), his co-star in the 2012 opera ‘Poppea’ at Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.

•    Produced again by Tris Penna, the song was written especially for Marc by Carl, who also features on guitar and vocals.

•    Completing this release are two further all new tracks, So What’s Tonight? and Idiot Dancing.

This product is released June 16 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

The Remix Anthology
A unique release bringing together a remix collection of Eighth Wonder's best loved singles spanning their career 1985-1989.

•    This 12 track collection brings together extended versions and remixes of all the band's singles.

•    Three versions appear of the band's best-selling single ‘I'm Not Scared’ - Disco Mix, Little Louie Vega Mix and 10" Remix. The single peaked at #7 in the UK chart and was written and co-produced by The Pet Shop Boys.

•    Two versions also feature of the band's other best known single ‘Cross My Heart’  - House Mix and Club Mix. The single was a #13 hit in the UK and top 20 across Europe. It also featured in the top 20 of the US Dance charts.

•    This CD includes a newly designed sleeve, a comprehensive UK discography and extensive sleeve notes.

•    The band was fronted by singer and film star Patsy Kensit. The band went on to  enjoy widespread chart success across Europe, America and Japan. The band had five Top 5 hits in Japan including three #1's.

•    This album features remixes by Little Louie Vega, David Leonard, Pete Hammond, Richard James Burgess, Alan Shacklock, Pet Shop Boys & Phil Harding.

•    Included are two versions only previously available in the U.S. Cross My Heart - Club Mix & I'm Not Scared - Little Louie Vega Mix.

•    Tracks 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 and 11 appear on CD in the UK for the first time.

•    Patsy Kensit first came to the attention of the world as a 4 year old actress, fronting the Birds Eye Peas TV advert in the 1970's. Eighth Wonder were formed by her brother Jamie, and he drafted Patsy in as the band's front person and the band went on to cause quite a stir amongst the A&R departments around London, eventually signing to CBS Records in early 1985. The band enjoyed immediate and continued success in Japan and Italy but it took longer for the UK market to support the band. The band released on studio album 'Fearless' in 1988 before the band’s untimely split in 1989. Patsy Kensit throughout her life has continued with a very successful career as an actress starring in Absolute Beginners, Lethal Weapon 2 and The Great Gatsby. She has latterly turned her attention to TV dramas with roles in perennial favourites,  Emmerdale and Holby City.

NB: This title is released July 21 and will not be dispatched before this date.
