Erasure – Heavenly Action (Yellow Brick Mix) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th September 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Heavenly Action” is a song by the British synthpop duo Erasure, released in November 1985 as their second single.

Issued by Mute Records in the UK and Sire Records in the U.S., the single proved to be the second commercial failure for the duo (following “Who Needs Love Like That”).

The mid-tempo pop song, written by Erasure members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, is a straightforward ode to love. The music video features Clarke and Bell in an outer space/celestial setting, with several young children appearing as angels.

To this day, “Heavenly Action” remains Erasure’s lowest-charting single on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 100. In the United States, “Heavenly Action” was paired with “Who Needs Love Like That” on the 12 inch single and, as a double-sided hit, climbed to number eight on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.

The song was later included on the duo’s debut album Wonderland, released in June 1986.

The UK only “Yellow Brick Mix” was at one time considered one of the rarest and most expensive commercially released Erasure items.

Erasure – Indian Rubber Mega-Mix (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th September 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

Side 1

“Indian Rubber” is a megamix of Erasure hits released in 1990 by the US based bootlega label ON-USound. The label had at least 15 12″ releases. The majority of releases have single artist megamixes. Later on the label changed it’s name to to Euro-Mixx. This megamix is quite sought after by Erasure fans.

Please remember that this is a bootleg unofficial release therefore the sound quality is not always the best. I have restored this 12″ to the best of my ability. “Indian Rubber” was also released by ON-USound as a CD single but was taken directly from a vinyl source.

SIDE A:
Indian Rubber Mega Mix (Part One) 9:10
1. A Little Respect
2. Stop!
3. Chains Of Love
4. Who Needs Love (Like That)
5. Oh L’Amour
6. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

SIDE B:
Indian Rubber Mega Mix (Part Two) 7:30
1. The Circus (Live)
2. Ship Of Fools
3. Push Me Shove Me
4. Sometimes
5. It Doesn’t Have To Be

Yazoo – Situation (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 5th December 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

“Situation” is a 1982 single by the British synthpop band, Yazoo. The song was originally released in the UK as the B-side to Yazoo’s debut single, “Only You”, which went to number 2 on the UK Singles Chart. Released as a single in North America, the song peaked at number 73 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US, and hit the top 40 in Canada, peaking at number 31. In late summer 1982 it became Yazoo’s first song to top the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, remaining at number one on this chart for four weeks. It also crossed over to the R&B chart, peaking at number 31.

The song features a memorable synthesizer hook by Vince Clarke (similar to the work he had done with his previous band, Depeche Mode), combined with the vocals by Alison Moyet (including her laughter, which has since been sampled in countless other songs, including the international novelty dance hit “Macarena”).
