  2. Never knew he remixed All We Got on Michael McDonald's 1990 album Take It From The Heart and very good it is too.

  5. One day I'll look into the backstory to that album, because I think some shenanigans went on...it was originally called Lonely Talk and scheduled for a 1989 release. Warners were messing around with a lot of acts/albums at that time,cancelling/refusing albums presented to them, and in 1990 chose to launch most of their releases without a lead single (Fleetwood Mac, Aztec Camera, Robert Plant, Pretenders, Michael McDonald) so there were some odd strategies floating around the label.

  13. Managed to find the CD on eBay for £2.70, Discogs doesnt even have a CD single listed. Odd! I will update!

  14. The Shep mix is the album version. I think Warners were trying to jazz up the album, having rejected it initially. So getting Shep to remix some tracks was one tactic.
     
  15. There's a monthly club I go to (well, did in pre Covid days of yore) in Liverpool called Sonic Yootha and a guy who occasionally DJs there played this mix a couple of months ago and it went down a storm. The place is a mix of an older crowd and club kids who love the pretention-less atmosphere.
     
  16. Proof that Shep Pettibone can still make people bop.
     
  17. The link a few pages back no longer works so just reposting this, Top 5 Shep?

     
  18. One word. Yes.
