Icehouse – Electric Blue (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 13th December 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“Electric Blue” is a 1987 hit single by the Australian rock / synthpop band Icehouse and was co-written by Iva Davies of Icehouse and John Oates of the U.S. band Hall & Oates. The single reached number one on the Australian singles chart on 16 November 1987, #7 on the American Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on 21 May 1988, #10 on the Canadian Singles Chart and #53 on the UK singles charts. Released in August 1987, it was the second single from their number one album Man of Colours.

John Oates became involved with Davies after contacting him to state he was a fan. The resulting collaboration produced this song and Oates has stated that if Davies had not released the song under the Icehouse name then it would have been a Hall and Oates track.

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Make It Better (Forget About Me) (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th October 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

R.I.P. Tom Petty
October 20, 1950 – October 2, 2017

“Make It Better (Forget About Me)” is a song written by Tom Petty of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics. It was released in June 1985 as the third single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1985 album Southern Accents. Musically it is an uptempo number that pays tribute to the Memphis Soul style, with heavy emphasis on horns and funk-inspired rhythm guitar. The music video continues in the Alice in Wonderland motif of “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and riffs on the ‘model annoyed by flying insect with the face of the singer superimposed’ as in the then-recent “You Might Think” video by The Cars.

“Make It Better (Forget About Me)” peaked at #54 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on July 6, 1985 spending eight weeks on the survey.

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.1 Brand New Lover
A.2 Something In My House
A.3 I’ll Save You All My Kisses

SIDE B:
Rip It Up (Flip Out Mix Edit Version) 5:16
B.1 Brand New Lover
B.2 Something In My House
B.3 I’ll Save You All My Kisses

BONUS TRACK:
Brand New Lover (Brand New Edit) 6:30
Edited By – Jim “Hip Hop” Hopkins*
Hot Tracks Remix Service Series 5, Issue 11

VINYL GRADE:
Vinyl: Near Mint
Sleeve: Near Mint

Label: Epic ‎– QY・3P-90105
