Princess
Released 13/04/09. Princess's classic 1986 debut album is given a long-overdue re-mastered Special Edition reissue. The album features Princess's number 7 debut smash "Say I'm Your Number One", and the subsequent hits "After The Love Has Gone", "I'll Keep On Loving You", "Tell Me Tomorrow" and "In The Heat Of A Passionate Moment".

Exclusive bonus tracks have been selected direct from the PWL archives, many making their first-ever appearance on CD. These include sought-after 12' remixes, the scarce soundtrack version of "Tell Me Tomorrow" from the movie "Knights & Emeralds" and the rare original demo of "Say I'm Your Number One".

Originally a backing vocalist, Desiree Heslop's session work with SAW led to the recording of the global smash, "Say I'm Your Number One", released under the stage name Princess. Although subsequent projects failed to match its success, this debut album is not only a crossover classic but also a sought-after collectors' item: scarce original CD copies have often changed hands at three-figure prices.

Take My Time
Released 19/10/09. Sheena Easton was born on April 27th 1959 in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, Scotland and from the age of five wanted to be a pop singer. In 1979 her dream of becoming a pop singer would become a reality when one of Sheena s tutors asked her to audition for Esther Rantzen who, at the time, was the producer of The Big Time. EMI were contacted by the show and agreed to hold an audition for Sheena in London. She performed three songs in front of three EMI executives and Sheena gave the audition her all, belting out You Light Up My Life , I ve Got The Music In Me and Feelings . All three executiveswere suitably impressed and Sheena was signed for one year and moved from her bedsit in Glasgow to London. The next step was to find songs to launch Sheena into the pop arena. To do this EMI recruited the help of Chris Neil a well known record producer whose previous successes included Dollar among many others.

After an image revamp and advice from her idol Dusty Springfield, who thought Sheena was wonderful , Sheena then recorded her first single Modern Girl . EMI sent the recorded track to radio stations around the UK. It was welcomed by many stations, including Radio 1, where the track received very favourable responses from Simon Bates and David Kid Jensen, who both thought the song would be a hit. When The Big Time was first aired on TV Sheena s episode was watched by 20 million viewers where her distinctive vocal and striking good looks won the hearts of the British public. The mass exposure helped Modern Girl and the follow-up single 9 To 5 (Morning Train) become smash hits and both singles catapulted into the top ten simultaneously.

Huge chart success was topped off in February 1981 at the Rock & Pop Awards with an award for Best Female British Female Singer as voted by the British Public. By this time Sheena Easton was an international phenomenon scoring hits all over the world, most notably the US where Morning Train (9 To 5) became an instant smash, hitting the top of the charts for two weeks in early 81. Sheena s debut album Take My Time was released in the UK in January 1981 and remained in the charts for 20 weeks. It was also a big success in the US, where it was retitled Sheena Easton , quickly turning Gold shortly after release. The original album comprised of twelve predominantly pop songs with strong melodies, that cross over with ease to different genres of music, giving the album a diverse feel with mass appeal. Here are those 12 tracks with four bonus tracks which were originally b-sides to four 45s.
