80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Erasure – A Little Respect (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th March 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“A Little Respect” is a song written and recorded by British synthpop duo Erasure, released in September 1988 as their tenth single. It was issued as the third European (and second American) single from their album The Innocents.

Known as one of their signature songs, “A Little Respect” continued Erasure’s success on the UK Singles Chart, where it hit number four to become the band’s fifth Top 10 single. It was also Erasure’s second consecutive Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, where it climbed to number 14, and hit number two on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs chart. In the U.K. Mark Saunders and Phil Legg provided the remixes, for the U.S. the remixes were made by Justin Strauss.

Written by Erasure members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, the heavily synthesized instrumentation is accentuated by acoustic guitar and Bell’s use of falsetto in the chorus. The lyrics are a plea to a lover to show compassion and respect.

This U.S. 12″ promo contains exclusive vinyl only mixes.

“The Sex Of It” is a single by American latin pop band Kid Creole And The Coconuts. Released as the first single freom the album Private Waters In The Great Divide. Written and produced by Prince.

Initial tracking took place on July 29, 1987, at Paisley Park Studios, a few weeks after the studios opened for recordings August Darnell (a.k.a. Kid Creole) recorded his own vocals over the basic tracks in late 1989 or early 1990.

The album was completed and scheduled for release when Prince submitted the song in late 1989 (which he had promised when meeting Darnell in Europe during the Lovesexy Tour), and the record company delayed the release to include the song.

“The Sex Of It” peaked at #19 on the US dance chart and #85 R&B. In the UK the single reached #29.

Martika – I Feel The Earth Move (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th April 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

A. Front

This post is in no way meant to be insensitive to the people of Japan or Ecuador. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the recent earthquakes.

“I Feel the Earth Move” is a song written and originally recorded by pop singer-songwriter Carole King in 1971.

Released in summer 1989, “I Feel the Earth Move” was the third single from American singer-songwriter and actress Martika’s self-titled debut, Martika. “I Feel the Earth Move” reached number 7 in the UK and number 2 in Australia. The high energy music video was shot during the promotional tour for this album. The single also reached number 25 on the pop charts in the U.S., but quickly fell down the chart after radio stations pulled it from their playlists in the wake of the 1989 San Francisco earthquake.
