Huang Chung – Dance Hall Days (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 3rd March 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

Dance Hall Days” is a single by English band Huang Chung originally released in October 1982 on Arista Records. This early version failed to have any chart success. The band then left arista and was signed to American based Geffen Records, making the group the second UK-based act to be signed to Geffen worldwide after Asia (not counting then-New York-based John Lennon in 1980).

At this juncture, and at Geffen’s suggestion, the band changed their name to Wang Chung, allegedly to make pronunciation easier for English-speakers. In 1984 the band re-recorded “Dance Hall Days” making it the hit version that we are all familiar with (No. 16 US, No. 21 UK).

This rare 12″ contains the original 1982 dance mix.
