Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on September 2, 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 Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Strip” was released as a single in 1983 and reached #42 US, #41 UK. Phil Collins plays drums on the track, and singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad, of ABBA fame, performs the female spoken part on the song. The track was taken from Adam Ant’s second solo album released in 1983 also titled “Strip”. The album marked a decline in Ant’s success, as it only reached #65 in the United States and #20.

    Thanks for this Paul! I always thought this was Adam’s most polished sounding single. I hope you can pull out Vive Le Rock as well (I don’t think I have a rip of that 12″). 🙂

    You’re welcome Goodguy. I already have “Vive Le Rock” posted on the blog 🙂

    That one must’ve slipped by me. Thanks again Paul!

    (I wouldn’t complain if Apollo 9 popped up…) 😀
