Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on April 6, 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!

“Crying Over You” is a song by Canadian new wave group Platinum Blonde, released as the first single from their 1985 album Alien Shores. The single reached No. 1 on the Canadian record charts on Sept. 7, 1985. The song features a guitar solo by Alex Lifeson from Rush. The 12″ features remixes by American record producer, remixer Shep Pettibone.

    Thank You Paul for this One, it was my favorite band back then! I’m curious, Do you have any other 12” from them?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Sorry Yan this is the only single I have by them.

    That hair! Talking about the 80’s. Haha.
    Don’t think I know this one. Let’s find out…

    What horror-sleeves you got for us, Paul. Made me think of my cousins’ dog from back in the 80’s, she used to blowdry that one after bath and take it for a walk. It was an Afghan by the way, that dog. Oh well, probably just jealousy from my part, since i only have few hairs left 🙂 The music i would not call New Wave. I am from The Netherlands, and NW over here was more obscure and dark, like Siouxie, Cure, Bauhaus. I would call it pop.


  6. Richard Says:

    Thanks for this Paul. One of the Canadian greats from the ’80s (saw them again in Toronto this past summer on the 30th Anniversary Tour for their debut album “Standing in the Dark”). Would love to track down some of their other 12″ers.


  7. Osc Says:

    I had hair like that at one point in the mid-80s. It helped me getting laid on several occasions, so…


  8. TDOL Says:

    I call this a ‘Guess The Singer’ album artwork. ;p

    I’m searching for a hairdresser that can help me achieve this look today.
