Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Icehouse – Hey Little Girl (Special Club Mix) (Europe 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 16th November 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

“Hey Little Girl” is a single released by Australian band Icehouse, the second single from the band’s 1982 album, Primitive Man. The album and single were co-produced by band member and the track’s writer, Iva Davies, and Keith Forsey (Billy Idol). It was released in October 1982, on Regular Records on 7″ and 12″ vinyl formats. UK and Europe releases by Chrysalis Records were also on 7″ and 12″ formats, but with different track listings. The single was then released in the US in 1983 on the same formats. On “Hey Little Girl”, Iva Davies uses the Linn drum machine — the first for an Australian recording. “Hey Little Girl” peaked at No. 7 on the Australian singles chart and No. 2 in Switzerland, No. 5 in Germany, Top 20 in UK, Sweden and Netherlands, and No. 31 on U.S. the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.

The Human League – Mirror Man (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 1st June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

“Mirror Man” is a 1982 song by the British synthpop group The Human League. It was released as a single in the UK on 8 November 1982 and peaked at number two in the UK Singles Chart. It was written jointly by lead singer Philip Oakey with keyboard players Jo Callis and Ian Burden, and produced by Martin Rushent.

“Mirror Man” was the first track written and recorded by the Human League after they returned from their World Tour, conducted in the wake of the enormous international success of their album Dare. “Mirror Man” was conceived and written as a celebration of Oakey and Wright’s love of Motown records. It has been described as electronic northern soul, with Oakey’s main verses delivered in deliberate sentences with emphasis on the last word of each sentence. Vocalists Susan Ann Sulley and Joanne Catherall feature prominently throughout the song but have no lyrics, providing backing vocals of “oohs” and “ahhs”. Recording and production was overseen by Martin Rushent, who had produced the band’s album Dare.

Speculation about who was the titular ‘Mirror Man’ was ended in 1988 when, during interviews to promote the band’s Greatest Hits album, Oakey revealed that it was about Adam Ant. Oakey had become concerned that Ant was starting to believe his own publicity, and was in danger of losing touch with reality. Oakey had avoided revealing this at the time for fear of offending the song’s subject. The song could be viewed as a reference to the 1971 Japanese TV series Mirrorman.

The song was released as a single in the UK in November 1982. It was the first new single the band had released since the phenomenal success of “Don’t You Want Me” almost a year earlier. The single was tipped by the media as their second Christmas number-one single in the UK, but peaked just short, at number two. The single did however reach number one in Ireland earlier that month and also reached the Top 10 in Canada the following February.

Its release in the U.S. was delayed until May 1983 where it was incorporated into the stop gap EP Fascination!. A&M Records, the band’s record company in the US, had refused to release it as a single “unless there was to be an album hot on its heels”. The track peaked at number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the fall of 1983.

Duran Duran – Carnival (Japan 12″ Mini LP)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th May 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

35 years of “RIO”!

“Carnival” is a dance music EP by British new wave band Duran Duran, released in various countries by Capitol-EMI. In Japan the EP was released on February 1, 1982.

The most interesting collection of songs can be found on the Japanese/Tawainese release of Carnival. Included among the increasingly easy to acquire versions of previous singles is a remix exclusive to this release of fan-favourite album track “New Religion”. This mainly instrumental mix remained unavailable outside of Japan/Taiwan until the 1999 release of the Strange Behaviour remix album. It is also noteable for featuring a longer fade out that runs right to the end of the in studio performance.

The remainder of the EP was filled with the seven-inch version of “Rio”, (mis-labelled as “Rio” (Pt II) as the wrong master was delivered to the Toshiba-EMI offices in Tokyo), the full length Kershenbaum remix of “Hold Back the Rain”, and Night Versions of “My Own Way” and “Hungry Like the Wolf”.

SIDE A:
Rio (Pt. II) (Full 7″ Mix) 5:04
