West End Jungle (Expanded collector's edition) - West End Jungle

West End Jungle (Expanded collector's edition)
Banned on its original release in 1961, West End Jungle gives the definitive insight into the seedy reality and cunning artifice of the sex-workers of early 60's Soho. Now re-released as special expanded collector's edition with two additional archive 'shockumentaries', and a pop promo by the legendary Marc Almond.

The Street Offences Act of 1959 cleared the "over painted harridan face of the West End" - the prostitutes - off the streets of Soho. Genuinely seedy and filmed in the private member's clubs, the 'actual places of vice' - that resulted from the change in the law, West End Jungle bears witness to the array of less than salubrious establishments that offered tawdry strip shows for audiences comprised of "bald heads and moist avid eyes". London railway termini are seen as the ideal locale for pimps to secure "ripe plums for the picking" - naive country girls who can be seduced into a life of vice. Within days, the "weak willed glamour-hungry bumpkins become skillful, heartless gold-diggers". The striptease clubs are a battlefield, the punters very much seen as 'mugs' to be reeled in by the "hostesses" for all the money they've got! West End Jungle paints a less than complimentary picture of the men who solicit sex workers in clubs which are little more than "high grade cattle markets", one hooker stating, "One of these days I'm going to burst out laughing in one of their stupid faces!" Shrewd businessmen are reduced to lecherous imbeciles in the company of two giggling working girls. Another man pays a tragically poor Marilyn Monroe look-a-like to 'model' for him "only to be entitled to five minutes of peering at a girl who needs a good wash".

Mandy
Released 13/04/09. The very first album to be released on Pete Waterman's PWL label back in 1988, Mandy Smith's one and only album "Mandy" is given a re-mastered Special Edition reissue. This Special Edition features the singles "I Just Can't Wait", "Positive Reaction", "Boys And Girls" and "Victim Of Pleasure", with the addition of a subsequent release, Mandy's 1989 cover of the Human League classic "Don't You Want Me Baby?".

Exclusive bonus tracks have been selected direct from the PWL archives. Long thought to be mere rumour, an unreleased Hi-NRG cover of Twinkle's 1964 smash "Terry" and Mandy's original version of the Kylie Minogue hit "Got To Be Certain" feature together with rare mixes of all five singles. These include a bona-fide Balearic classic: the Cool And Breezy Jazz Version of "Mandy's Theme (I Just Can't Wait)".

A successful model, Mandy was only 16 when she launched her music career, but media interest was focused on her personal life and UK chart success proved elusive. However, she scored major hits internationally, notably across Europe and in Japan, and her album remains a favourite for many 80s pop devotees.

Beyond The Pale (Expanded Edition)
PASSION PUPPETS were a synth/guitar pop band signed to the legendary Stiff Records, whose only album BEYOND THE PALE was issued in 1984.

In 1983, the London band scored a memorable radio hit with their Spaghetti Western-influenced single ‘Like Dust’, which was popular both in the UK and in Canada.

This is the first time that BEYOND THE PALE has been on CD in the UK (it was only previously available as an expensive import). 

The album is remastered from the original tapes with eight bonus tracks, including singles ‘Like Dust’, ‘Voices’ and ‘Beyond The Pale’, many of them debuting on CD.

Original members of PASSION PUPPETS are helping out with this long-overdue reissue, contributing rare photos and pictures for the booklet as well as being involved with the sleeve-notes.

Musically, PASSION PUPPETS fell somewhere between Haircut 100 and early Duran Duran.
