Depeche Mode – Strangelove (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 3rd October 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Strangelove” is a single by Depeche Mode from their sixth studio album Music for the Masses. It reached number 16 on the UK Singles Chart, number 2 in West Germany and in South Africa, and was a Top 10 success in several other countries, including Sweden and Switzerland. In the US it reached number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first of 9 number-ones on the US Dance charts, where it stayed for three weeks at the top.

The b-side “Pimpf” is a dark instrumental that is mostly piano, named after a magazine of the Hitler Youth organizations. “Pimpf” later shows up as the final track on Music for the Masses. There is also a remix available on some “Strangelove” single releases called “Fpmip” (“Pimpf” backwards).

This is the first US 12″ release for “Strangelove” released May 20th, 1987.

Significant to the US 12 inch single release (20696-0) is the “Blind Mix”. Unlike every other release of this mix worldwide, the US release fades the mix out prematurely (by a little under a minute). This abnormal mastering job was also available on the Sire Records promotional CD compilation “Hit It”, and on other US releases of the remix, until the 1991 CD single box sets.

SIDE A:
Strangelove (Maxi-Mix) 6:31
Strangelove (Midi-Mix) 1:40

SIDE B:
Strangelove (Blind Mix Edit) 6:09
Remix – Daniel Miller, Rico Conning

Dennis Edwards Featuring Siedah Garrett – Don’t Look Any Further (Europe 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Don’t Look Any Further” is a 1984 single by former Temptations lead singer Dennis Edwards, featuring Siedah Garrett. The single was written by Franne Golde, Dennis Lambert and Duane Hitchings. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard Black Singles chart and peaked at #72 on the Billboard Hot 100. In the UK, the song peaked at #45. Guitar, bass and drum programming is by Paul Jackson, Jr.

The music video for the song has been described as “what … might be the worst video ever”.

However, given the rudimentary style of video making utilized at the time, many believe that the video was of, at least, moderate quality. Despite its simplicity, some early video aficionados descride the video as “awesomely terrible”. Regardless of how critics view this video, most agree that it is visual accompaniment for one of the greatest soul songs of the 1980s.

Dead Or Alive – Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix) (Japan 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

Originally I posted this one back on July 26th, 2012. 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 2017 transfer. I have also included as a bonus the Hot Tracks remix of “Brand New Lover”.

Here is the MEGA RARE 1987 Japanese PROMO-ONLY 12″ “Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix)” from British band Dead Or Alive. This is one of the most sought after Dead Or Alive promos… very few in existence and very rare. This 12″ was used to promote the album “Rip It Up” and has never appeared on any other Dead Or Alive release. There were only about 100 copies of this 12″ made making it one of the rarest Japanese Dead Or Alive items.

Japanese PROMOS are by far the rarest of all promotional format. When finished with the vinyl, radio stations would either smash or throw away the promos to prevent resale. Japan stopped pressing vinyl mainstream in the mid 1990’s and switched to the CD format for most releases. The very existence of a Japanese PROMO is itself rare, much less a promo from Dead Or Alive!

SIDE A:
Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix) 8:10

A.2 Something In My House
A.3 I’ll Save You All My Kisses

SIDE B:

Taylor Dayne – Tell It To My Heart (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 5th September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Tell It to My Heart” is a song performed by American singer Taylor Dayne, released as her first single from her first album of the same name in late 1987. The single was Dayne’s first major exposure, and she soon became known for her up-tempo, dance-oriented music.

The song was written by Chappell Music staff songwriter Seth Swirsky and Ernie Gold. Swirsky almost didn’t deliver the song to his publisher after he and his girlfriend decided it was not good enough.

“Tell It To My Heart” reached Taylor Dayne when Dayne contacted Chappell Music and asked to be sent some demos which had been overlooked, although the song had been recorded in early 1987 by Louisa Florio for a self-titled Canadian album release. Dayne recalled feeling an immediate affinity with the song: “I thought there was something about the hook – it’s a happy hook.” The track was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, Long Island. The track took off so unexpectedly in the fall of 1987 that Taylor was forced to complete her debut album at Cove City Sound in six weeks. Swirsky would also write, along with Arnie Roman, Dayne’s follow-up single “Prove Your Love”. For almost two months, only the 12-inch record of “Tell It to My Heart” with four mixes was available for purchase. That 12-inch sold 900,000 copies alone.

Dayne was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal, Female for her performance on “Tell It to My Heart” in 1988. Producer Ric Wake said in a 1994 interview with Vibe magazine that Tell It To My Heart “really blew people away”. Commenting on Taylor Dayne’s voice he said “They thought she was, like, black or some kind of ethnic…”.

“Tell It to My Heart” appeared in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 the week of 14 November 1987, rising to #39 from #43. Ten weeks later, during the week of January 23, 1988, the single peaked in the number seven spot. The song was on the Hot 100 for 26 weeks. The song was also a top five dance hit in the U.S. reaching #4.

In the UK, “Tell It To My Heart” reached #3. It was ranked as the 23rd best-selling single of 1988 in the UK.

In 1995, “Tell It to My Heart'” was remixed and re-released to promote Dayne’s Greatest Hits package. This version climbed to #23 on the UK Singles Chart.
