BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
Happy Birthday Olivia Newton-John!
Produced by David Foster the epic track “Livin’ In Desperate Times” was the second single released from the Soundtrack to the film “Two Of A Kind”. “Livin’ In Desperate Times” debuted on the Billboard Top 40 on February 25, 1984. The single remained on the chart for five weeks peaking at #31.
ABOUT THE VERSIONS:
In 1998 MCA Records released the soundtrack for the motion picture “Two Of A Kind” on CD for the first time, however the mix of “Livin’ In Desperate Times” was not the original album version that appeared on the vinyl, cassette and 8-track releases in 1983. Instead MCA chose to use a sloppy newly made edit because the original master could not be found. Subsequently this new edit was also used on the “Gold” compilation in 2005. Both the 7″ remix and original LP version remain unreleased on CD or digital format.
The US 7″ promo of “Livin’ In Desperate Times” has the 7″ remix on both sides. Because the original LP version is just as sought sought after I used it as the b-side.
