New Kids On The Block – Step By Step (US 12″)

Well we are in 90’s territory so we can’t ignore these guys. (They actually had stuff released in the late 80’s as well) This is synth pop with 70’s Disco Strings. If you didn’t know this band of pin-ups included Danny Wood, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jonathan Knight, Jordan Knight (both brothers) and they are now all around my age (the wrong side of 40!) so HAAAAAAAAAA!

Produced by Maurice Starr (From The Brothers Johnson) and remixed by Sidney Burton. The rarer “Club Version” is here with extra rattling drum machine amongst all the orchestral sweeps.  B-side “Valentine Girl” sees them do an impression of The Stylistics all ear piercing falsetto.
