Company B – The Miami Megamix (German 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 9th January 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

Company B is a Latin freestyle trio formed in 1986 by Cuban-American producer Ish “Angel” Ledesma (Foxy, Oxo), featuring members Lori L. (Ledesma), Charlotte McKinnon and Susan (Gonzalez) Johnson. Before the group’s self-titled Album was released, Charlotte McKinnon left and was replaced by Lezlee Livrano. After the group’s self-titled debut album, Susan Johnson left and was replaced by Sheena. For the group’s second album, 1989’s Gotta Dance, Sheena and Lezlee Livrano both left the group and were replaced by Donna Huntley and Julie Marie (who also was a rotating performer with Exposé).

Company B resulted from the music trend of producer-driven girl groups in the late 1980s and early 1990s, most successfully the group Exposé. Company B’s first single “Fascinated” was released in 1986 on the independent label The Summer. The song created so much buzz in clubs around Miami that it soon made its way to local radio stations. This in turn led to its being picked up and re-released by Atlantic records. With a much wider distribution due to major label [Atlantic] backing, “Fascinated” received significant radio and club airplay in all major cities throughout the U.S. It reached number one on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart and crossed over to pop radio, peaking at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In 1988 dance label ZYX Records issued a “The Miami Megamix” which was a megamix of Company B’s dance hits. The megamix was created by remixer producer Peter Vriends and only released in Germany.
