“Tell It To My Heart”, the classic debut album from vocal powerhouse and perennial pop icon Taylor Dayne, receives a long-awaited Deluxe Edition double CD reissue on Cherry Pop.
• Originally released on Arista Records in early 1988, “Tell It To My Heart” immediately established Taylor as an major international chart star, reaching the Top 30 on both sides of the Atlantic, going gold in the UK and double platinum Stateside.
• “Tell It To My Heart” includes the global smash hit title track (#3 UK, #7 US), and three further international hits: the dance floor favourite “Prove Your Love” (UK #8, US #7), the signature ballad “I’ll Always Love You” (US #3) and “Don’t Rush Me” (US #2). Produced by Taylor’s longtime collaborator Ric Wake, the album also features “In The Darkness”, penned by Madonna songwriters Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly, plus covers of Honey Cone’s classic 1971 US #1 “Want Ads” and Siedah Garrett’s “Do You Want It Right Now”, subsequently a club classic for Degrees Of Motion.
• Digitally remastered direct from the original Arista master tapes, this Deluxe Edition features bonus tracks including “Willpower”, recorded for the 1988 Seoul Olympics, and comprehensively compiles sought-after mixes of all four singles – many of which appear here on CD for the first time. CD2 consists entirely of full-length 12″ mixes, celebrating Taylor’s status as an undisputed dance floor diva.
• With personal input from Taylor herself and other key personnel, this release also features fully reversible outer artwork utilising both versions of the original album sleeve. The extensive booklet also features additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes.
Since making her chart-topping debut with “Tell It To My Heart”, Taylor Dayne has sold over 75 million records, with five studio albums and over 20 hit singles to her name. Her career highlights include three Grammy nominations, songwriting for Tina Turner, Broadway acclaim for her roles in “Cats” and Elton John and Tim Rice’s “Aida”, and induction into her native Long Island’s Musicians Hall Of Fame alongside fellow LI luminaries Billy Joel, Lou Reed and Pat Benatar. Following Taylor’s recent single “Dreaming”, more new material and a busy calendar of live dates are planned for 2015.
“Tell It To My Heart” follows well-received recent Deluxe Edition reissues of Taylor’s second and third albums “Can’t Fight Fate” and “Soul Dancing”, making her entire Arista album catalogue available via Cherry Pop.
