BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

New 2015 Re-Rip!
Remastered using the Ortofon OM Super 30 stylus!

This is one of those singles that I originally ripped way back in January, 2011. Back then I was using ClickRepair and the Ortofon OM 20 stylus. The result was a good rip but not as good as it could be. Now in 2015 I have stopped using ClickRepair started manually removing clicks and updated my stylus to the Ortofon OM Super 30. I also upgraded the tube in my Bellari phono pre-amp to the Tung-Sol 12AX7ECC803-S Gold Electron tube resulting in a much higher quality transfer. Enjoy!

“Invincible” is the lead grammy nominated single for Pat Benatar’s seventh studio album Seven the Hard Way (1985), released on July 6, 1985. The song was written by Holly Knight (who also wrote “Love Is a Battlefield”), and was used as a theme song for the film The Legend of Billie Jean (1985). The song was a huge hit, peaking at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    Nice track, I only have this as a modern day compressed and loud version off the 2005 Greatest hits, so this is a real treat.

    Thanks as always for the rip Paul. 🙂

    Oh the gifts you deliver Paul! This is really exciting and I can’t thank you enough for all your labors. I just love the diversity you show for different music genres here. To me, it’s really heart warming that you love so many varied styles of music. This is such a celebration of dance music of all types showcased on our lauded 12-inch dance disc. I would be lost if anything happened to Burning The Ground. It’s my sanctuary and I hold dear you Paul and the lovely community here as well. There is light here in a world that can be so dark at times and I’m so thrilled that you attract positivity, light and laughter. It’s like dancing with (happy) tears in my eyes. You’re a precious gift Paul. Please know this: ALWAYS!!!

    No remix known by me either, only the Spanish version.
    The (slightly) extended version of ‘Painted Desert’ is a beauty many won’t know.
