Blue Zone U.K. – Jackie (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 3rd September 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

Blue Zone UK was a 1980s British synth-pop band (simply called Blue Zone in the UK, Europe and Australia; but adding the “UK” due to a naming dispute in the United States). The group consisted of Lisa Stansfield (lead vocals), Ian Devaney (trombone, keyboards, guitar, backing vocals) and Andy Morris (trumpet, flugelhorn, electronic keyboards and backing vocals).

“Jackie” was the third single taken from the bands only album “Big Thing” which was released in 1988. “Jackie” became the groups highest charting single reaching #19 Sweden, #54US. In the bands native UK the single failed to chart. For the US single release non album track “Chance It” was used as the single’s b-side.

After the release of “Jackie” the trio and label Arista decided to focus on Stansfield’s solo career. Morris would co-write and co-produce the first three Stansfield albums, before departing the trio. Devaney and Stansfield would eventually marry, and now own a music publishing business, and continue to write and record together.
