BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

The Star Sisters were a female Dance/Pop trio from The Netherlands that were very popular during the 1980s, most notably as the ladies who performed the chorus as members of Jaap Eggermont’s studio act Stars on 45 and in a spinoff in which they performed as The Andrews Sisters in a medley that charted internationally in 1984.

The members were Sylvana van Veen (B. 1950), Patricia Paay (B. April 7, 1949) and Yvonne Keeley (B. September 6, 1952). Paay and Keeley are sisters in real life. In 1984, they performed a song (during the film’s end credits) on the Japanese film The Return of Godzilla.

Between 1983 and 1987 the group released only six hits in Europe, including their best known hits “Are You Ready For My Love” in 1986 and “He’s The 1 (I Love)” in 1985.

    Surprising post Paul! For me as a Dutch guy it brings back some memories. They were hot and sexy on TV back then.

    One error: the girls didn’t sing the chorus on Stars On 45, that was done by one of the best Dutch background singer, called Jody Pijper (still singing by the way). The Star Sister indeed were a spin off of the Stars On 45 project. They had a brief but highly succesful moment with an Andrew Sisters cover act in 1984. Later on they went disco and changed production team: Eric van Tijn & Jochem Fluitsma (easy names to pronounce outside the Netherlands 🙂 ). The lads were also responsable for the Dutch girls group Mai Tai. ‘History’ was one of their biggest worldwide singles. Even Michael Jackson bought the 12 inch, specially because he loved the production and overall sound of the song.

    Never heard of these girls before, but after some digging I’m hoping you might have The Andrews Sisters Medley also?!
    Thanks for bringing us “new” discoveries!

    And another amazing post by DJ Paul! Now this one was a huge surprise. To my knowledge, only one other blog in the entire internet has ever posted a rip of this, and that link is loooong dead. This song was a huge dance hit in the Philippines back in ’85/’86, and spent its days roaring up the dance floors in the country alongside Madonna’s and E.G. Daily’s dance smashers.

    Thank you Dj Paul. THIS is an absolutely amazing post. 😀

    You’re welcome Santi I absolutely love this track. It’s full of energy and fun. I can see why it was a dance floor hit 🙂

    If you don’t mind me asking Paul, how on Earth did you come across this vinyl? As far as I know, it didn’t have any release in the United States so it’s quite a curiosity for me. (I’m still trying to trace how this song got into the Philippines for that matter. It’s a bit of a mystery as well for me since I wasn’t born yet when this song came out) :))

    Santi I actually got this record around 1998 from a local record shop that sells import vinyl. The store was closing as many have done and the record was in the bargain bin I think I paid $2 US for it.

    The original members were Patricia Paay, Yvonne Keeley and Sylvana van Veen. Sylvana left the group in 1984 and was replaced by Ingrid Ferdinandus. So on this record you hear Patricia, Yvonne and Ingrid, not Sylvana.
