Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one back in July 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 Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Do It For Love” was the first single released from Sheena Easton’s seventh studio albu “Do You”. The song was produced by Nile Rodgers, the song and album marked a change from her pop sound to a funkier more club/dance feel. “Do It For Love” peaked at #29 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and #21 on the Hot Dance Club Play Chart in 1985.

The 12″ versions were remixed by James Farber who had also remixed “Angel” and “Material Girl” for Madonna.

    Excellent choice to re-rip these older posts, by the way.

    Thanks for the Sheena Easton collection. I was looking at the artist list and have found that Rick James is missing ¿Any chance you may have any R.J. 12″?

    You’re welcome Matracas. I try to never make promises just in case I can’t keep it. I will see what I can do.

    Hey Paul,
    thanks for all your hard work, you work wonders for music lovers! Apologies for a comment unrelated to the post, and also that ive emailed you regarding this, but as your blog of such quality i presumed you must get alot of emails regarding it, so I just hope you read this one way or other 🙂
    I noticed that in one of the comments you mentioned you had the original 12″ Falco Der Kommissar,
    If its not too much to ask for, would you be able to upload this soon? I’ve been thoroughly searching the Internet for a lossless copy in any form, i dont use torrents and all hosted files seem to link to some form of money grabbing fake site, let alone have fantastic 12″ versions in 24bit.
    If you could post this soon my life would be complete as falco is a real favourate for me, especially Der Kommissar.

    Thankyou,

    Max.

    Another Sheena post? Now that’s a great surprise and a fabulous way to start the Manic Monday!!!
    I agree with Stefano about re-rips. I have noticed that the new rips are brighter in sound and made the already excellent rips even better!
    So thank you Paul, You Do!!!

    You’re welcome Ric i’m glad that someone can tell the difference in the rips 🙂

  10. Macha Says:

    Thanks for the post, DjPault! Not my favourite song then when it was released. But sounding good in this day and age. In my opinion though, Can’t Wait for Tomorrow was better than Do It For Love. So I’m hoping you’ll rip that as well? 😀

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    ‘Can’t Wait Till Tomorrow” is on the b-side of this single. I don’t see where it was released on it’s own.

    [Reply]

    Macha Reply:

    Yes, Can’t Wait Til Tomorrow IS on the B side. And it’s the Dance Mix, not the album version. 🙂

  12. music_fan Says:

    Paul, are there any remixes of Sheena Easton’s For Your Eyes Only? I guess it’s not the sort of song you’d imagine being remixed as it’s a slow ballad. It was the theme tune for the James Bond film ‘For Your Eyes Only’ – released in 1981. 🙂

    The sound quality on Do It For Love is excellent. Catchy feel good pop song.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Thank you Music_Fan. As far as I know there is not a remix of “For Your Eyes Only” 🙂

    Thank you Paul. I also have this 12″ vinyl. “Do you” is along with Strut (12″), One Man Woman, Morning Train and Modern Girl my favourate Sheena Easton tracks.

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Jan. I think my all time favorite Sheena track is “Prisoner” from her debut album 🙂

    I have this in my collection, too. Wasn’t very proud of it back then, but it grew on me through the years. Thanks for the excellent rip!

    Any re-rip in 24/96 is closer to that higher resolution that pure analog cut to vinyl had. Sure I didn’t like surface noise…But you eliminate it so it’s a “win-win” situation for loveless enthusiast. There is a few other that I would love you to do a 24/96 treatment (that you already have done a 16/44.1) But you know what they are and you will get to them in good time. Thank You -Rick RBG
