BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

REQUEST

About this transfer:

I had several issues with this record not sure if it was a bad pressing or not the record looks near mint and unplayed. There is some audible noise especially on track three. I did several adjustments to my stylus including checking the azimuth and tracking force which did not change anything, I even swapped out the stylus for another. I am assuming this is a bad pressing or the record grooves are worn. Had this not been a request accompanied by a donation I probably would have scrapped this project. At any rate this is a fun record hope you enjoy it.

“Please Let Me Go” is the fourth single by British indie pop band The Popinjays. The band was formed by Wendy Robinson (vocals) and Polly Hancock (vocals, guitar), initially with a drum machine.

The single was taken from the bands debut album Bang Up To Date With The Popinjays was released in April 1990.

I originally posted this fun 12″ on George’s birthday way back in 2012. At that time I was still using ClickRepair and the old stylus this 12″ was way over due to have a new meticulous re-rip and 2017 remaster. Also created a new picture sleeve to go along with it!

On this 12″ we have the Wham! “Summer Fun Megamix”. A really nice mix featuring some of Wham!’s biggest hits including “Wham! Rap”, Freedom, I’m Your Man” and more. On the filip side is a megamix of early 80’s disco/funk/r&b tracks, including “Love Come Down” by Evelyn King, “Get Down Saturday Night” by Oliver Cheatham, and “You’re The One For Me” by D-Train.

Black Wax was an an early 1990s bootleg remix label which put out remixes and megamixes of music covering everything from ’50s to ’90s music. Many of the single artist remixes have new production under them making them very unique.

Posted by DjPaulT on 23rd June 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

A. Front

“Rockin’ Over the Beat” is a song by Belgian dance act Technotronic. It first appeared on their debut album Pump Up the Jam in 1989 and was released as a single the following year. It is accredited to “Technotronic featuring Ya Kid K”, who co-wrote the track with Jo Bogaert (aka Thomas De Quincey).

The song is an upbeat house tune espousing the pleasures of dancing. It is representative of the positive and melodic feel of the Pump Up the Jam album. “Rockin’ Over the Beat” was a respectable hit for Technotronic; it reached #9 in the UK, #11 in Ireland and breached the Billboard Hot 100 at #95.

Most 12″ releases featured three remixes by Bernard Sumner of New Order: the “Piccadilly”, “Hacienda” and “Instrumental” mixes, all of which were prefixed with “Rockin’ Over Manchester” (where Sumner is from).
