If you have requested a re-up (Billy Idol, The Parachute Club, Icehouse, Oran Juice Jones etc…..) all should have been given a new link.
Commercial 80’s twelve inch weekend.
So I always inwardly cringe when I post something so obvious on here but it gets lots of views, maybe because of the less listened extended version or B-side dub or track that people who had the original vinyl have not heard for an age. So the weekend is going to be dedicated to big old 80’s tune…..enjoy!
From 1985 and a huge hit that year for UB 40 and The Pretender’s Chrissie Hynde , covering the Sonny Bono classic in the bands electronic reggae style. (They had the most success with these covers, “Red Red Wine” was massive) Produced with long time studio partner Ray Falconer, it has more synth stuff than you would first imagine. The Dub is suitably harder sounding. Two bonus tracks appear on the B-side, the instrimental “Theme…” and the classic dub reggae of “Up And Coming M.C.” Proto D and B ?
