Glenn Frey – You Belong To The City (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on February 10th, 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Side 1

“You Belong to the City” is a song written by Glenn Frey and Jack Tempchin, and recorded by Frey during his solo career. It was written specifically for the television show Miami Vice in 1985. The song nearly reached the top of the charts, peaking at number two (behind Starship’s “We Built This City”) on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, although it did reach the top of the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart. This song, along with Jan Hammer’s “Miami Vice Theme”, helped the Miami Vice soundtrack album reach the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart for 11 weeks in 1985, making it the best-selling album of the year and the most successful TV soundtrack of all time.

All instruments were performed by Frey except the saxophone part played by studio musician Bill Bergman, as well as the drum track by Frey’s long-time drummer, Michael Huey. The song was recorded at Fool On The Hill studios, New York City, at the end of 1984. The synthesizer used in this song was a Yamaha DX7.

David Bowie – Day-In Day-Out (Groucho Mix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on February 3rd, 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

A. Front

“Day-In Day-Out” is the first track on David Bowie’s album Never Let Me Down. It was issued as a single in March 1987, ahead of the album’s release.

Bowie wrote the song out of concern for the treatment of the homeless in the US. The song’s R&B roots were reminiscent of some of Bowie’s R&B work in the 1970s with one author saying that the song is “an example of Bowie’s strength in the R&B genre.”

The single’s B-side, “Julie,” was described by one reviewer as the “catchiest” song of all the songs from Never Let Me Down, and lamented that the song was relegated to b-side status

This Limited Edition US 12″ contains the “Groucho Mix” remixed by Paul “Groucho” Smykle and is only commercially available on this 12″. It did also appear on a UK 12″ promo.
