Exposé – Come Go With Me (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 8th September 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“Come Go with Me” is a single by the freestyle girl group Exposé. The song was written by producer and group founder Lewis Martineé and appears on their 1987 debut album, Exposure. Jeanette Jurado sings the lead vocal on “Come Go with Me”, with Gioia Bruno and Ann Curless singing backup.

In 1985, Exposé had two dance club hits, “Point of No Return” and “Exposed to Love”. Between 1985 and 1986, the three original members of Exposé left the group and were replaced by Jeanette Jurado, Ann Curless and Gioia Bruno. These new members re-recorded vocals on “Point of No Return”, and both songs were included on the album. Although “Come Go with Me” was the first single released from Exposure, the other two songs were familiar to fans of the group and its music.

“Come Go with Me” became the group’s first single to reach the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It peaked at #5 in April 1987 and remained in the Top 40 for 12 weeks. On the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, the song spent two weeks at the summit in January of that year, becoming their second song to achieve this feat (following “Point of No Return”). The 12″ single also reached #2 on the Billboard Hot Dance Singles Sales chart.

Exposé – Point Of No Return (1987 US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 3rd November 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

REQUEST

Exposé was initially formed in 1984 when Lewis Martineé, a Miami disc jockey and producer, decided to form a dance-based group. Working with his partners Ismael Garcia and Frank Diaz at Pantera Productions, talent scouts hired Sandra Casañas (Sandeé), Alejandra Lorenzo (Alé), and Laurie Miller as the group’s lineup, under the title X-Posed. The next year, the trio recorded “Point of No Return” for Pantera Records as a 12-inch vinyl single, which became a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. The song helped to introduce a still-popular genre of music that became known as freestyle, which often features keyboard riffs, a sing-along chorus, and electro funk drum-machine patterns in the music arrangement. The success of “Point of No Return” quickly led Exposé to sign with Arista/BMG Records, which promptly assumed distribution of the 12-inch vinyl single.

During the recording of the group’s first studio album Exposure, the personnel of the group changed. Reports vary based on the source. According to People magazine, one of the original singers quit while two of the girls were fired midway through the recording of the first album, but according to Billboard, all three were fired. Arista records felt that the three original singers lacked star potential. Martinee states that he made the decision himself to replace the three girls, while Miller maintains it was all their choice, and Jurado confirms that Lorenzo wanted to leave. Shortly thereafter, Casañas pursued a solo career and Lorenzo pursued other ambitions; they were replaced by Jeanette Jurado and Gioia Bruno. Miller began a solo career; she was replaced by Ann Curless.

In February 1987, the new lineup of Exposé released its debut album, Exposure, on Arista Records. Notably, unlike many classic girl groups, Exposé alternated lead vocals among its members. During the summer of 1987, a re-recorded version of “Point of No Return” was released, with Jurado performing lead vocals, and it topped out at #5 on the Hot 100. While the initial distribution of Exposure to suppliers contained the original 1984 version of that song, subsequent pressings contained the new vocal version; this has led to the original pressings of the album being considered a collector’s item.

Exposé – Point Of No Return (1985 US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd November 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Formed in 1984, Miami-based Exposé (originally X-Posed) was the brainchild of dance music producer Lewis A. Martineé. The all-girl trio consisted of Sandra “Sandee” Casanas, Aléjandra “Alé” Lorenzo and Laurie Miller.

After just two singles, “Exposed To Love” and “Point Of No Return,” both of which became major club hits, Exposé split up. Alé and Sandee embarked on solo careers, and Sandee had great club success with her solo album “Only Time Will Tell”, which included the dance smash “Notice Me”.

This 12″ is the original 1985 recording of “Point Of No Return”, with the original line-up of Alejandra Lorenzo, Sandra Casanas, and Laurie Miller. The original vocal mix of the song, featuring Lorenzo, reached the top of the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1985.

Coming tomorrow the 1987 12″ re-release.
