BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Hot Tracks” Series 6, Issue 9 was a special Halloween Issue released in 1987. This set includes frightening remixes and mind melting dance hits. One of the coolest things about this release is the inclusion of “He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask)” by Alice Cooper taken from the film “Friday The 13th, Part VI: (Jason Lives)”. This track never had a 12″ remix and has really been overlooked. So glad Hot Tracks remixed this one! Dim the lights have some candy corn and enjoy this double 12″ from Hot Tracks!
Below are the linear notes from the original release:
From the movie “Friday The 13th, Part VI: (Jason Lives)…Steve worked from the CD, the original length was 3:50 and he extended the track to 5:28. He added a 64 beat intro and a 32 beat outro and the traditional cold end. Who would ever believe Alice Cooper on Hot Tracks???
Steve had fun with this mix; using last years Hot Tracks (Series 5, Issue Nine), he laced this track with the special effects to spice it up for Halloween. Also, to be noted, we wish to thank Lisa at Mushroom Records in Sydney, Australia for her help on this project.
Brian is new to our editing staff and we wish him a warm welcome. The edit description was not available at press time; but in listening to the edit, one can tell a good technical job was done and the track is quite workable. Here’s one for those D.J.’s who wrote in and said “more male vocals please”.
So many version, so little time!!…This record came supplied with four mixes. We worked with three of them to come up with this tasty version. By the way, who’s that girl carrying on like that, after the break? (certainly not Madonna!) Mike Carroll goes cryptic….
This record was given a smooth intro and builds quickly into the vocal section. The track then follows witha straightforward break, (unlike the commercial 12″) and finishes up with an extended outro. (our apologies for mis-spelling E.G.Daily on the labels & stickers)
Mark combined the four mixes to give it a “Stock/Aitken/Waterman” sound. He then restructured the song to create a dance floor-terror, (straight from his laboratory); it could only end ….cold. Nice to hear from you again Mark, where have you been??
Jim used the import 12″ and rearranged all those tasty words to recreate a new story for us. The intro was completely reconstructed, the break: extended to 64 beats and the outro was redone and extended to 64 beats; consequently, “Blow Job” comes to a cold end….. You will want to listen to this one a few times before programming.
Utilizing both the vocal and house mixes from the Italian 12″, Glenn combined the two to bring us this Hot Tracks FHA Edit. This version is “Tightened up” and includes all the things needed to make it work on your floor: long intro, mid-point break and 16 measure outro with a cold end. Get down, Get nasty!!
