Kim Wilde – You Keep Me Hangin’ On (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th December 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“You Keep Me Hangin’ On” is a 1966 song written and composed by Holland–Dozier–Holland. It first became a popular Billboard Hot 100 number one hit for the American Motown group The Supremes in late 1966.

“You Keep Me Hangin’ On” was covered in an updated version by British singer Kim Wilde in 1986. Wilde’s version was a total re-working of the original, completely transforming the Supremes’ Motown Sound into a hi-NRG song. She and her brother, producer Ricky Wilde, had not heard “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” for several years when they decided to record it. The song was not a track they knew well, so they treated it as a new song, even slightly changing the original lyrics.

It was released as the second single from Wilde’s Another Step studio album (although “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” was the LP’s first worldwide single, as the first single had been released only in selected countries). The song became the biggest hit of Wilde’s career, reaching number 2 in her home country, and number 1 in Australia. It also became Wilde’s second and last Top 40 hit in the US following “Kids in America” and is also, to date, her most successful song in that country, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for one week in June 1987. It later ranked as the 34th biggest hit of 1987 on Billboard’s Hot 100 year-end chart that year. “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry for UK sales exceeding 250,000 copies.

Kim Wilde – Kids In America (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th May 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1981

A. Front

“Kids in America” is a song recorded by British singer Kim Wilde. It was released in the United Kingdom as her debut single in January 1981, and in the United States in spring 1982. It has been covered by many artists from different genres.

The song was recorded in 1980 after RAK Records boss Mickie Most heard Wilde singing on a backing track for her brother Ricky Wilde. He liked her voice and image and expressed an interest to work with her. Ricky Wilde, together with his father Marty Wilde (a 1950s/1960s rock and roll star) wrote the song “Kids in America” for Wilde to record. Once the demo was sent, Most remixed the track himself and released it on RAK as Wilde’s first single in January 1981.

The song peaked at number 2 in the United Kingdom. The following year it became a Billboard Hot 100 Top 30 hit in the United States and ranked as the 91st most successful song of 1982 on the Hot 100 year-end chart. In the summer of 1981, the track appeared on Wilde’s self-titled debut album.

The new wave song was the start of Wilde’s career. Her father and brother continued to write songs for her (with the latter also given production credits), although in later years Wilde herself and her brother would usually be credited with the songwriting.

The song was released as a 7″ in the UK and United States. Germany is the only country that a 12″ was issued.

Spirit Of The Forest – Spirit Of The Forest (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 22nd April 2015

BTG EARTH DAY EXCLUSIVE 1989

New 2015 Re-Rip!
Meticulously Remastered!
First time in 24bit Flac!

Originally posted April 22, 2011

In celebration of Earth Day I thought it would be great to re-rip this gem from 1989 I really hope that you like it and that you get it’s message.

The first-ever collaboration of top musical artist to help rescue the Earth’s fast disappearing tropical rainforests. “Spirit of the Forest”, conceived, written, and produced by the English environmentalist band, Gentlemen Without Weapons, is a heart-wrenching anthem designed to draw international attention to this unparalleled global environmental crisis.

Over the course of several recording sessions in Los Angeles, New York, London, Rio, and the Brazilian rainforest itself (with native Caraja Indians), the final version of the song was completed. Among the artists heard on the record are David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Olivia Newton-John, Belinda Carlisle, Ringo Starr, Thomas Dolby, Mick Fleetwood, Brian Wilson, Kate Pierson of the B-52’s, Donna Summer, Taylor Dayne, Deborah Harry and Joni Mitchell. In addition, Brazilian artists Ivan Lins, Gilberto Gil, and Djavan have also joined in.

Although covering just 7% of the world’s land surface, the equatorial rainforest belt contains half of all known species of plants and animals, and acts as a global atmospheric regulator. As third world nations, like Brazil, continue to burn, harvest, and plough under the forests for short-term human corporate gain, the Earth faces increasing danger from global greenhouse warming and desertification. Additionally, deforestation drives indigenous peoples from their ancestral homes. Scientists around the world agree that destruction of the rainforest is a planetary catastrophe of the first magnitude. The aim of “Spirit of the Forest” is to alert people everywhere that this is an issue of utmost importance to all life on earth.

Every minute, an expanse of rainforest the size of twenty football fields is destroyed. That equals an area the size of the state of New Hampshire every day! The release of “Spirit of the Forest” is designed to raise both the voices and funds in this unprecendented challenge to all life on Earth.

The power of music is very strong – the message of this record is very direct:
LET IT BE HEARD.

Kim Wilde – You Came (The Shep Pettibone Mix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 28th May 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

“You Came” is the second single from the Kim Wilde album Close.

The single became one of the biggest hits of her long career topping the charts throughout Europe and reaching #3 in the UK Singles Chart. Although it did not continue her United States success, on the pop chart, it peaked at number ten on the dance chart.

The song was released during the summer of 1988, while Wilde was supporting Michael Jackson on the European leg of his tour (the video for “You Came” showed material from the concerts as well as backstage footage). With the Close album becoming a best-seller, this was arguably the point where Wilde was at the pinnacle of her career as “You Came” reached the top ten in charts all over the world.

The song was written by Wilde and her brother after the birth of his first child, Marty.

This is the North American release of the single “The Second Time” re-titled “Go For It”. The single also contains different mixes than what appeared on the European release.

“The Second Time”/”Go for It” was also the first Wilde song of which there were several remixes released both commercially and promotionally on the 12″ format.

In the US the single reached #65 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was a top 40 dance track reaching #31. The song was also used on season 4 of the US television show “Knight Rider” on the episode titled “Knight Racer”. In addition “Go For It” was also used on the TV show “Misfits Of Science” bothe shows aired on NBC just weeks apart.
