BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989
“Ou est le Soleil?” which means “Where Is The Sun?” is less a 12” single, and more a 12”, double sided B-side. “Ou est le Soleil” is also the B-side on the late-80’s McCartney single “Figure of Eight”. This 12″ features remixes by the legendary Shep Pettibone with production by Stephen Lipson and Trevor Horn. The original version of “Ou est le Soleil?” can be found on the LP “Flowers In The Dirt”.
“Ou est le Soleil?” peaked at #10 on the US Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart on December 21, 1989.
You may not be familiar with this track but give it a few listens I am sure you will grow to really enjoy it. This is one of those occasions that really makes me proud of “Burning The Ground” because I love giving new life to tracks that many people are not aware of. Enjoy!
