BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on April 2, 2010. 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!

“Emotion” is the title track from American singer Barbra Streisand’s twenty-third studio album. Released in 1984 as the third single from the album “Emotion”, is an upbeat number with The Pointer Sisters on background vocals. This song was also released as a 12″ single, remixed by Jellybean Benitez, popular for his work with Madonna. The song peaked at #79 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and #14 on the US Adult Contemporary chart in 1985.

The accompanying music video features The Who frontman Roger Daltrey as Streisand’s love interest.
