Alisha – All Night Passion (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th November 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

Side One

“All Night Passion” is the debut single by American singer Alisha. It was released from the self-titled album “Alisha” in the United States in 1984.

When Alisha was 14, she joined a local rock/dance group The Babysitters. Her parents arranged for her to record a demo tape with them, and her family sent the tape to several record companies. It eventually made its way to producer Mark S. Berry through Vanguard Records. Berry had been looking for a singer with a great voice to record “All Night Passion”. The song was recorded in the summer of 1983, but didn’t start getting airplay until February of 1984. The song became very successful in the clubs, eventually leading Alisha to sign with Vanguard Records in 1984 for a full-length album, which Berry went on to produce.

Alisha – Baby Talk (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th November 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Side One

“Baby Talk” is a 1985 dance/pop single by Alisha. Originally recorded and released by Gregg Brown in 1984, Alisha’s version was popular in the dance clubs and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart in December 1985.

Alisha’s version was produced by Mark S. Berry and released on Vanguard Records in September 1985 as the third single from her debut album Alisha. “Baby Talk” became Alisha’s most successful single to date, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance charts in the final week of December 1985. The single crossed over to the Hot 100 charts reaching No. 68 in February 1986, and on the Hot Black Singles chart, peaking at No. 75. It was also released in the UK on Total Control Records, and reached No. 67 on the UK Singles Chart.

The b-side “Instrumental Dub” and “Vocal Dub” are listed on the label as two seperate songs, however they are pressed as one continuous track on the vinyl. To keep the integrity of the original vinyl I chose not to seperate the songs into two individual tracks.

SIDE A:
Baby Talk (Special Remix) 6:42
