APRIL NEW RELEASES ON CHERRY POP

18 February 2011

Five Star - Between The Lines // CRPOP94 // BUY NOW

This 14 track collection features the 10 tracks of the original album plus 4 essential bonus tracks.
Five Star were the youngest act to top the album chart with the million-seller Silk & Steel.
The album peaked at number 7 and contains 3 UK top 30 singles.
The 12” remix of the single ‘Whenever You’re Ready’ (UK #11) appears here for the first time on CD in the UK. Also included is the Shep Pettibone 12” remix of ‘Somewhere Somebody’ (UK#23), previously only available on vinyl.
The collection also includes the 1987 full vocal b-side How Dare You (Stay Out Of My Life), which was used as the theme tune to ITV’s How Dare You, and is previously unreleased on CD.
Ending this collection is an eleven minute megamix featuring 9 of Five Star’s biggest hits (Can't Wait Another Minute, Let Me Be The One, All Fall Down, Whenever You're Ready, Find The Time, If I Say Yes, R.S.V.P., Love Take Over, The Slightest Touch) and previously unreleased on CD.
The CD booklet contains comprehensive sleeve notes, including interviews with several writers and producers of the album, 1987 single discography, and a brand new exclusive interview with Five Star’s Doris Pearson.
Five Star were awarded Top British Group in Smash Hits magazine and at the 1987 Brit Awards.
The Five Star story began in 1983 when the children of reggae musician Buster Pearson decided to form their own pop group. Under their father's watchful managerial eye, they signed to his own label Tent Records. Their debut album "Luxury Of Life" was released in August 1985 and peaked at #12 in the album charts. Their second album, the #1 hit "Silk & Steel" followed in August 1986 and became triple platinum. In the 1980s the band recorded 21 hit singles, 11 of them top 20, and 4 original albums followed by a Greatest Hits album in 1989. The band, likened predictably to the Jackson 5 were one of the leading UK pop acts of the decade.

This 17 track collection features the ten tracks of the original album plus seven essential bonus tracks.
The album peaked at number 17, certified silver, and contains four UK top 75 singles.
The 12” remixes of the single ‘Another Weekend’ and ‘Rock The World’ appear here for the first time on CD. Also included are two 12” remixes of the UK singles ‘There’s A Brand New World’ and ‘Let Me Be Yours’.

Two 1989 Five Star tracks from their aborted fifth album for RCA are also included as bonus tracks ; the single ‘With Every Heartbeat’ and the highly regarded ‘Something About My Baby’.
The CD booklet contains comprehensive sleeve notes, including interviews with key figures involved in the making of the album, 1988-9 single discography, rare photographs and exclusive comments from Five Star’s Doris Pearson.

Hazell Dean - Always // CRPOP96 // BUY NOW
Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, Ian Levine, Trevor Vallis, Pete Hammond and Pete Ware, "Always" features a host of classic SAW singles – ‘Who’s Leaving Who?’ (#4), a cover of Anne Murray’s 1986 single, ‘Maybe (We Should Call It A Day)’ (#15), ‘Turn It Into Love’ (#21), originally an album track and subsequently a Japanese #1 for Kylie Minogue, plus the dancefloor favourites ‘They Say It’s Gonna Rain’ and ‘Always Doesn’t Mean Forever’.
Digitally re-mastered direct from master tapes held at the PWL, Abbey Road and Capitol Records archives, this Deluxe Edition brings together the original nine-track album with no less than 20 bonus tracks across two CDs. Added to the album and available on CD for the very first time are two sought-after 1986 singles: ‘Stand Up’, a Stock Aitken Waterman reworking of Umberto Tozzi’s ‘Hurrah’, and ‘E.S.P. (Extra Sensual Persuasion)’, a cover of Millie Jackson’s 1983 single. Bonus tracks also include rare B-sides, the 1987 U.S. 7" remix of the 1985 hit ‘No Fool (For Love)’, the original Dutch-only single version of ‘Walk In My Shoes’ and many mixes previously unreleased in the UK or only available on vinyl.
The extensive booklet also features additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, full lyrics and an exclusive track-by-track commentary written for this release by Hazell herself.
The definitive doyenne of the Hi-NRG scene, Essex-born Hazell Dean found mainstream success in 1984 with the #6 hit ‘Searchin’ (Gotta Find A Man)’ on the Proto label. The Stock Aitken Waterman-produced follow-up, ‘Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go)’, reached #4, giving the Hit Factory team their first Top Ten single and marking the beginning of a partnership with Hazell which continued until 1991. After the release of her 1985 album "Heart First", Hazell signed with EMI and a succession of releases over the next three years culminated with "Always", widely regarded as her best work. In the years since, Hazell has continued to write, produce and record, recently revisiting ‘They Say It’s Gonna Rain’ on Energise Records, as well as maintaining her profile as an evergreen club performer.
This Deluxe Edition of "Always" follows the popular reissue of Hazell’s "Heart First" and many other PWL-related titles on Cherry Pop, including Mel & Kim, Sinitta, Haywoode, Sonia, Big Fun, Brother Beyond, Pepsi & Shirlie and O’chi Brown.
