British female artist to score three Top Ten hits on both sides of the Atlantic
in the 1980s, Samantha Fox made her name as the nation’s favourite Page Three
girl before launching an enviable music career. The anthemic "Touch Me (I
Want Your Body)" became a global chart-topper in 1986 and was followed by
a succession of hits, including several collaborations with both the legendary
Stock Aitken Waterman and US hip-hop pioneers Full Force. Samantha remains a
household name, with a new album planned for 2012 and live dates across Europe.
"Touch Me" coincides with
accompanying Deluxe Editions of Sam’s other three Jive albums: 1987’s
"Samantha Fox", 1989’s "I Wanna Have Some Fun" and 1991’s
"Just One Night", and follows many other popular PWL-related reissues
on Cherry Pop from artists such as Mel & Kim, Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia,
Boy Krazy, Brother Beyond, Pepsi & Shirlie and O’chi Brown.
"Her first album, Touch Me, was also her best with introductory single Touch Me (I Want Your Body) becoming a worldwide smash and paving the way her to have an extended career." Music Week, 03/08/12
