The B-52’s – Give Me Back My Man (UK 7″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 8th May 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1980

A. Front

“Give Me Back My Man” is a song written and recorded by the American rock band The B-52’s. It was released as the second single from their 1980 album Wild Planet and is one of many solo vocal performances from Cindy Wilson in the band’s earlier years.

“Give Me Back My Man” was a staple in The B-52’s concerts in the 1980s and was usually one of the first few songs played. Early on, it was played just as it was on the record, with Schneider playing extra synth and glockenspiel. After the release of the Party Mix! album in 1981, the band performed “Give Me Back My Man” and others in the extended style in which they were presented on that album. The song was re-integrated into the set of the B-52’s 2008 Funplex tour.

The “Party Mix” of the  song charted on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart along with album track “Party Out of Bounds” and prior single “Private Idaho”, reaching number five (chart rules at the time allowed multiple album tracks to occupy the same position together). Released as a single in the UK, it hit number sixty-one on the UK Singles Chart.

Wham! – Club Fantastic Megamix (UK 7″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 9th July 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

“Club Fantastic Megamix” was a single released by Wham! in 1983, and was the last single release for the duo on Inner Vision Records. The single was released in both 7″ and 12″ formats. The 7″ contains a rare edit of the 12″ mix.

*A note about this transfer. The b-side “A Ray Of Sunshine (Instrumental Mix)” is taken from the UK 12″. I did this because the 7″ sounded pretty bad I usually do not do this but in this case it was necessary.
