Erasure – Oh L’Amour (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on September 20th, 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Oh L’amour” is a song by English synthpop duo Erasure, released in April 1986 as their third single.

It was issued by Mute Records in the UK and Sire Records in the U.S. to herald the June release of Erasure’s debut album Wonderland, but became the third consecutive commercial failure for the band in both territories. Despite its low chart placing, “Oh L’amour” has proven to be one of Erasure’s signature songs, due to its popularity in dance clubs. It remains a favourite among fans, particularly when performed live.

The single reached #86 on the UK singles chart and #3 US dance chart.

First pressings came with a Thomas the Tank Engine logo on the back cover, which was withdrawn due to legal issues.

In Germany the 12″ was released including an ultra rare German version which featured vocals by Susanne Störrle.

Dennis Edwards Featuring Siedah Garrett – Don’t Look Any Further (Europe 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on September 19th, 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Don’t Look Any Further” is a 1984 single by former Temptations lead singer Dennis Edwards, featuring Siedah Garrett. The single was written by Franne Golde, Dennis Lambert and Duane Hitchings. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard Black Singles chart and peaked at #72 on the Billboard Hot 100. In the UK, the song peaked at #45. Guitar, bass and drum programming is by Paul Jackson, Jr.

The music video for the song has been described as “what … might be the worst video ever”.

However, given the rudimentary style of video making utilized at the time, many believe that the video was of, at least, moderate quality. Despite its simplicity, some early video aficionados descride the video as “awesomely terrible”. Regardless of how critics view this video, most agree that it is visual accompaniment for one of the greatest soul songs of the 1980s.

Dead Or Alive – Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix) (Japan 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on September 18th, 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

Originally I posted this one back on July 26th, 2012. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new 2017 transfer. I have also included as a bonus the Hot Tracks remix of “Brand New Lover”.

Here is the MEGA RARE 1987 Japanese PROMO-ONLY 12″ “Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix)” from British band Dead Or Alive. This is one of the most sought after Dead Or Alive promos… very few in existence and very rare. This 12″ was used to promote the album “Rip It Up” and has never appeared on any other Dead Or Alive release. There were only about 100 copies of this 12″ made making it one of the rarest Japanese Dead Or Alive items.

Japanese PROMOS are by far the rarest of all promotional format. When finished with the vinyl, radio stations would either smash or throw away the promos to prevent resale. Japan stopped pressing vinyl mainstream in the mid 1990’s and switched to the CD format for most releases. The very existence of a Japanese PROMO is itself rare, much less a promo from Dead Or Alive!

SIDE A:
Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix) 8:10
A.1 Brand New Lover
A.2 Something In My House
A.3 I’ll Save You All My Kisses

SIDE B:
Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix Edit Version) 5:16

B.3 I’ll Save You All My Kisses

BONUS TRACK:
