In general, not much is known for sure about the early life of Amanda LP and she would very much like to keep it that way. Amanda Lear vehemently denies having had a sex change on German television Lear was a judge on the Italian version of Dancing with the Stars.
Sunday, July 23, Walk the Night. Other then Italo disco, morning music and sleaze have been a big feature on Disco Vinyl. Lewis decided to cover the track as she is a fan of Oasis and rock bands in general, and she really liked the song's sentiment. The strings were performed by London Session Orchestrawho were organised and arranged by Will Malone.
The musical structure of the song is different from the conventional style which is LP used, as the song's melody does not gain momentum until the end of the song instead of by the first chorus. Aside from comparisons to her previous singles " Bleeding Love " and her cover of Snow Patrol 's " Run ", reviewers felt as though she was too emotive and did not reflect the simplicity of the original.
Although the arrangement of the song was criticised, Lewis's vocal performance was highly praised. Lewis cited her reason for wishing to record her own version as being a "massive" fan of rock bands, and that she wanted to put a "different spin on it". It was engineered by Richard Flack, who was assisted in the process by vocal engineer Seth Waldmann.
A range of instrumentalists were bought in for the song; Karl Brazil played the drums, while Luke Potashnick provided guitar. John Garrison played the bass and Robson the piano. Andy Gill for The Independent noted that it does not possess the "rapidly acquiring melodramatic heft and momentum by the first refrain". Nick Levine for Digital Spy complimented her version, writing that it is "as satisfying as a sponge pudding on a chilly winter evening".

Her first disco song " J'attendrai " became a hit inso apparently this was released in time for the 30th anniversary of that song's debut. I must admit, I've been curious about her " Gigi In Paradisco " album for a little while now, so I might take a chance on this collection. Lots of info about Dalida on her Wikipedia entry. Absolutely can't wait for this one! One of my favourite Chic Organization productions then again, I think all of them are great.
In my opinion, " Spacer ," the big hit off of this album, is one of Chic's greatest efforts. Some of you might remember it being the basis of Alcazar's hit " Crying At The Discotheque " from several years back.
As for the rest of the album, I'd say it's one of Chic's more interesting and somewhat experimental efforts. Something of a pre-cursor to the album they would do for Debbie Harry " Koo Koo " the following year. Then again, I suppose with Sheila's charming, yet thick French accented English, they probably didn't have much choice but to experiment a little bit.
It has a bunch of bonus tracks six in total that the UK release doesn't have. Included are five bonus mixes of "Spacer," four of them from a " Spacer - Remix " release. Although I'm not so crazy about early 90's "disco updates," another one of the bonus tracks is the original US 12" Mix of " Your Love Is Good ," which I never even knew existed.
Anyway, that said, I just wish I had found out about this release earlier. Oh well. The UK release of my favourite Jackson's debut album. I had posted a little bit about this back in the first reissues and releases postbut it seems now there's finally a definitive release date. It's a pretty timely release because until now, I've been wondering how I was going to get my hands on the out of print and expensive Japanese CDs of those albums. Unfortunately the only place with any info on this is Dusty Groove.
Update : At some point the title changed from " Oddities and Electro Flavas ," to the current title. Posted by Tommy at PM 2 comments:. Tuesday, April 18, Housekeeping. I really should be studying for my exams, but instead I decided to procrastinate by cleaning things up around here, particularly with the category tags. The lack of category tags is probably THE main drawback of Bloggerbut by the time I figured that out, it was a bit too late.
Initially, I decided to make my own tags and link them to a Google Blog Searchbut that didn't work out so well; some pages showing up, others not, mostly in the wrong order etc. I later found out about Labelrwhich is a new tool especially for Blogger accounts, but alas, it's still in beta and they aren't accepting any new subscribers at this time either.
So instead, I decided to improvise a little bit and do something completely different from either of those. So with that, feel free to try out the new and improved category tags. Here's how it breaks down. Also, I've added a few new links in the past several days; the new ones are denoted by a white asterisk. Check 'em out sometime. Anyway, I'm out for now. I figure, since this is an mp3 blog, there is probably no better time or Crying My Heart Out - Madleen Kane - Cover Girl (Vinyl than here and now to post an audio tribute to June.
Instead of dwelling on some of the sad circumstances of her life, like my previous two entries probably did, I wanted to do something to celebrate her life. In their early recordings June was often underused by their producer David Rubinson compared to the other three sisters. Perry would end up using June quite a LP, particularly on many of their uptempo tracks, namely some of their biggest hits like " Jump For My Love ," " Dare Me ," and " He's So Shy " to name a few.
