Howard Jones – No One Is To Blame (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 21st December 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“No One Is to Blame” is a song by British musician Howard Jones. The song, in its original version, can be found on his second studio album, Dream into Action, which was released in 1985. Following the success of the previous singles taken from the album, the original track for “No One Is to Blame” was re-recorded to give the song a more radio-friendly sound. Phil Collins and Hugh Padgham produced the re-recording, with Collins adding his own backing vocals and drum work. This new version of the song was included on the 1986 US EP Action Replay as well as the CD version of Jones’s 1986 studio album, One to One.

“No One Is to Blame” was released as a single in March 1986 and became Jones’s biggest hit in the United States, peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song also became the first of his two #1 songs on the U.S. adult contemporary chart (“Everlasting Love” would top this chart in 1989). The song was also a top 10 hit in Australia and a #16 hit in the U.K..

The song is about unfulfilled attractions, saying that they’re normal and commonplace (“We want everyone – no one ever is to blame”). It uses a number of metaphors, such as “You can look at the menu, but you just can’t eat” and “It’s the last piece of the puzzle, but you just can’t make it fit,” to describe the frustration of experiencing attraction but being unable to act on it, for whatever reason. On a deeper level it describes the frustration and pain of unfulfilled desires and dreams inherent in the human condition.

“The Long Mix” is significantly shorter than the single; it is actually not a remix, but an entirely different piano and vocal-only version of the song recorded in session for the BBC Radio 1 Janice Long show.

Genesis – Man On The Corner (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th January 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

C. 12'' Label

“Man on the Corner” is a song by British band Genesis, released on 5 March 1982. The song was written by Phil Collins. It peaked at number 41 in the UK Singles Chart.

The lyrics describe a man who spends his days on a street corner, shouting at passersby. According to the radio show In the Studio with Redbeard (which spotlighted the making of the Abacab album), the song was composer Collins’ first song about the homeless epidemic and society’s reluctance to help the homeless or find a resolution. Backed by a simple drum machine beat, the song takes a musically dark tone. Near the end of the 1980s, Collins would revisit the theme of homelessness in “Another Day in Paradise”. This song makes a prominent feature of the Roland TR-808 drum machine at the beginning, then switches to a drum set during the bridge.

NOTE ABOUT THIS TRANSFER:

For the A-side “Man On The Corner” I used the US 12″ promo because it sounded much better than it’s UK 7″ counterpart. For the B-side “Submarine” I used the UK 7″ restoring it as best as I could. I also included the artwork from the UK 7″ and the label from the US 12″ promo.
