BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
Re-Rip Newly Remastered!
Originally I posted this one on June 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!
“Sonic Boom Boy” is the debut single by British three-piece pop/rock band Westworld. Named after the sci-fi film Westworld, they were formed in 1986 by former Generation X guitarist Bob “Derwood” Andrews and American vocalist Elizabeth Westwood. The line up was completed by drummer Nick Burton. In the UK “Sonic Boom Boy” was a top 20 hit peaking at #11 while in the US the song reached #42 on the Billboard Hot Dance chart.
This UK 12″ is an early indie test pressing and features alternate tracks than what appeared on the domestic 12″ releases. The front cover, inner sleeve and labels are all hand painted. Making this 12″ a very rare and unique item.
