    Oh how you tickle my fancy, Paul, with your varied selections. I love how you rescue an artist’s back catalog from oblivion! I was very familiar with Regina’s “Baby Love” but now, I have her other great twelves from you. You have a total of five Regina songs on your site and this is indeed, wonderful. I love the girls from the 80’s. Another one of my favorites of which you have presented to us is, Alisha. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for preserving her catalog as well, along with Regina’s. You really make us all incredibly happy with all this phenomenal music. And, of course, not just the ones we all know, but the lesser known ones, the obscure and the missing ones. I look at Burning The Ground’s discography in AWE, Paul. You are like the Ben Liebrand of the 1980’s, Paul. Where Ben is more focused on the 70’s Disco era, you are more in tune with our love of the 1980’s. I should admit that Mr. Liebrand deserves credit for giving us some of the 80’s on his marvelous, Grand 12-Inches series, but you pull-out-all-the-stops when it comes to the dub mixes and crazy versions that are in your vast collection. You make me so excited and euphoric, Paul. You are an Angel in every way. Many thanks, again and again and again and again and again and again and ………..

    Yes! My prayers were answered (boy you came in the nick of time)! Haha. Wrong artist.

    I absolutely love Regina. Her album “Curiosity” is mid-80s pop perfection. So many great tracks. I only wish a company like Cherry Red would remaster it for us all to enjoy without spending $70 on eBay (it seems to be a rarity on CD!). Thankfully we have you to give us all these hard to find mixes, like these two here.

    Thank you so much for all your care with these rather obscure artists/songs! I’m super grateful. xo

    You’re welcome Raymond. I would like to see “Curiosity” re-issued but not by Cherry some of their work is good but I have been burned a few times by dodgy releases from them. It is an album worth checking out 🙂

    I totally get that! They’ve had to recall a lot of albums. Edsel also seems to be guilty of that. I think these companies need to slow down on quantity and focus more on quality. Like that Belinda release with the long awaited inclusion of “In My Wildest Dreams”. I guess it was a crappy YouTube rip rather than a studio master.
    I would just love to see it (Curiosity) on the market again. Along with Alisha’s catalog, namely “Nightwalkin'”. So many great albums, sadly long out of print.
    Again, thank you so much for your work!

    Much love
