BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
Originally I posted this one back in June of 2010. 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 rip with my newer equipment. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!
Produced by David Foster the epic track “Livin’ In Desperate Times” was the second single released from the Soundtrack to the film “Two Of A Kind”. “Livin’ In Desperate Times” debuted on the Billboard Top 40 on February 25, 1984. The single remained on the chart for five weeks peaking at #31.
The 12″ version of “Livin’ In Desperate Times” was only released in the US, Canada and Sweden and was backed with the extended version of “Twist Of Fate”.
