Rick Springfield – Human Touch (Mexico 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th August 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

REQUEST

“Human Touch” is a 1983 single by Australian singer Rick Springfield from his album Living in Oz. The song reached number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. It was also his most successful hit in the UK, peaking at number 23; this also led to a performance on Top of the Pops. Because of this being Springfield’s only top 40 single in the UK, he is considered a one-hit wonder in England, despite the fact that Jessie’s Girl is his biggest hit world wide. However, that song only peaked at 43 in 1984 for Springfield, 3 years after its release in the UK.

This Mexican 12″ is pressed on yellow translucent vinyl and has a picture sleeve unique to this release.

Rick Springfield – Celebrate Youth (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 25th February 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

In my never ending quest for better sound quality, I have purchased a tube upgrade for my Bellari VP130 Phono Pre-amp. I am hoping that this upgrade will add more high-end and energy to the sound as well as tightening it up a bit. Curious to see if the soundstage opens up after some breaking in.

 

“Celebrate Youth” was the first single taken from Rick Springfield’s 1985 album “Tao”. The single was a moderate success debuting in the Billboard top 40 on April 20, 1985. After a six week run, the song peaked at #26. “Celebrate Youth” also charted in the UK peaking at #80.

SIDE A:
Celebrate Youth (Dance Mix) 5:20
