BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE
Like the sight of new fallen snow or the scent of cookies baking in the oven, “Last Christmas,” the seasonal song by U.K. pop group Wham!, is a yuletide tradition that never gets old. Originally released in 1985 on Epic records “Last Christmas” became an international hit reaching the top ten in several countries including the UK where it peaked at #2. In the Us the single was an Adult Conteporary hit reaching #22.
In 2014 Legacy Records issued a limited 12″ pressed on translucent RED/GREEN vinyl in US to celebrate the singles 30th Anniversary, sold exclusively for Record Store Day. The 12″ included the standard 7″ version of the holiday hit backed with a previously unreleased instrumental version. Only 3,000 copies were pressed.
