BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on April 21, 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Hey Little Girl” is a single released by Australian band, Icehouse, the second single from the band’s 1982 album, Primitive Man. It was released in October, 1982, on Regular Records in 7″ Vinyl Single and 12″ Vinyl Single formats. UK and Europe releases by Chrysalis Records were also on 7″ and 12″ formats, but with different track listings. The single was then released in the US in 1983 on same formats. “Hey Little Girl” features Iva Davies using the Linn drum machine – the first for an Australian recording. It peaked at number seven on the Australian singles chart and #2 in Switzerland, #5 in Germany, Top 20 in UK Sweden and Netherlands, and #31 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.
