Lionel Richie ‎– All Night Long (All Night) / Wandering Stranger (12″)

A staple of any decent 80’s night “All Night Long” was a huge hit back in 1983. Here we have the “Disco” version which to my ears is exactly the same as the 7″, so a monumental rip-off back in the day, it is 20 seconds longer!!!

I’m going to  concentrate on the B-side, the epic ballad, “Wandering Stranger” (it’s almost a Rock Ballad with that guitar solo) a far superior song to the cheesy “Hello” all about relationship troubles (aren’t they all!) and has a lush, orchestral arrangement; this was from his debut album. A bit of a masterpiece.
