Side A
StickerRe-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on September 21, 2011. 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 using the Ortofon 30 stylus!

“Baby Don’t Say Goodbye” was the third and final single released from the 1989 album “Nude” by synth-pop band Dead Or Alive. Produced by Pete Burns and remixed by New York-based DJ and Grammy nominated record producer Danny Tenaglia.

“Baby Don’t Say Goodbye” debuted on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart on November 25, 1989 after spending ten weeks on the survey the single peaked at #6. “Baby Don’t Say Goodbye” would be Dead Or Alive’s last top ten entry on the US charts.

Track B1 “Cheers Vocal” and track B2 “Danny”s Dub” indicate that this was remixed by Danny Tenaglia who was resident DJ at Cheers, Miami during this time.

    This is one sweet song. Thanks for this new rip Paul. I can’t wait to hear the new fidelity. I didn’t care for the Danny Tenaglia mixes, as I thought they didn’t fit DOA’s sound, but the original mixes, with that glorious ending, just gives me chills. Karen (my wife) adores this record. Pete is extraordinary on his delivery with the lyrics and such. Gorgeous!!

    Fantastic choice, Paul! One of the great thrills of the 80s was tracking down the Stateside 12″s of UK artists, because it would be the only place to hear the US-only mixes by the likes of Morales, Pettibone, Vasquez, Knuckles and Tenaglia. It was always great to hear pop tracks, like this DoA classic, re-imagined for the clubs!

    Is it me or do all DOA tracks sound the same?? 🙂

    As always Paul, thanks for the rip..!

    The m3u file seems to be corrupt on the mp3 download Paul, but great individual rips as always. Thanks a million.


  8. Jason Says:
