Blue Mercedes – Rich And Famous + Re-ups (CD Album)

Cheesy synthpop of the late 80’s from Blue Mercedes. Produced by Phil Harding and Ian Curnow.

All good tunes, no fillers. Sometimes the lyrics can be a bit jarring, “Your Secret Is Safe With Me” for instance reminds me of Sade but the lyric “Would you like a knuckle sandwich ?” was a bit of a shock!?

Pop ! Pop ! Pop! in the style of ABC (if produced by PWL) with a classic Spandau closing track.

All the singles are below (Refreshed – for that Super Deluxe Edition)

  1. I blind bought this when it was new. Quite the bitchy little album, they certainly nailed the attitude end of it but there’s a certain je ne sais quoi
    missing that would take this from Johnny Hates Jazz peer and elevate it to perfectly mining the early 80’s sound.
