“Ain’t Nothing But A Party” was the first-ever comprehensive compilation of 12″ singles from 80s chart mainstays, post-disco synth soul pioneers and perennial floor fillers Phil Fearon and Galaxy.

Compiled with Phil’s blessing, this collection brings together the definitive extended versions of all his UK single releases issued on the Ensign label from 1982 to 1987. No less than five Top Twenty hits – ‘Dancing Tight’, ‘Wait Until Tonight (My Love)’, ‘What Do I Do?’, ‘Everybody’s Laughing’ and ‘I Can Prove It’ – feature alongside Phil’s cover of the Showstoppers’ ‘Ain’t Nothing But A House Party’ – an early UK House classic produced by Stock Aitken & Waterman.

Digitally remastered direct from master tapes archived at Abbey Road, this collection features many mixes unavailable since their original release and available on CD for the first time. Showcasing the innovative post-disco synth-soul sound of Phil’s FJR Studios, it also boasts mix credits for the influential M & M team of John Morales and the late Sergio Munzibai, John Luongo and PWL’s Phil Harding and Pete Hammond.

The extensive booklet also features additional photos, a fully illustrated discography, lyrics and new sleeve notes written especially for this release.

“Ain’t Nothing But A Party” is a perfect party album, essential for all 80s aficionados…

Galaxy was the brainchild of former Kandidate member Phil Fearon and launched in 1982 with the club favourite ‘Head Over Heels’. Top Five chart success followed with the classics ‘Dancing Tight’ and ‘What Do I Do?’, all generated from Phil’s own home studio. A virtual one-man ‘hit factory’ in his own right, Phil went on to record at PWL with Stock Aitken Waterman before moving into song-writing and production work for other artists, notably Pepsi & Shirlie’s 1987 smash ‘Heartache’. In recent years, he has made a long-overdue return to performing and now makes regular live appearances.
