Side A Label
“Temptation” is a single by Sheffield band Heaven 17, originally released in April 1983, peaking at number 2 in the UK charts. This was the second single to be taken from their second album The Luxury Gap, after November 1982′s “Let Me Go”.
The guest vocals are provided by Carol Kenyon, who continued to work with the band on the Pleasure One and Teddy Bear, Duke & Psycho albums. The song also featured an orchestra, arranged and conducted by John Wesley Barker, which was also heard for the single “Come Live With Me” and in various tracks on the parent album.
In 1992, the song was remixed and re-released by the Brothers in Rhythm, whose new mix charted at number 4 in the UK Top 40, and hitting number 1 in the UK dance charts. The remixes of “temptation” and “Let Me Go” were released to coincide with the release of the Heaven 17 compilation album “The Beast Of Heaven 17″.
“Let Me Go” spent five weeks at #4 on the US charts in 1983. The 1992 remixes were done by world-renowned house producer, Mark Picchiotti hailing from Chicago, who owns/runs the US indie imprint, Blueplate Records.
