‘Ocean Blue’ remains one of my favorite Kylie b-sides. It’s sublime.
When were these 'Xtour sessions'?
(I assume this was a dvd extra or something?)
What do people think of the Brothers in Rhythm mix of 'Love is on the Line'?
This was meant to be on her 1994 album I think.
I love her BIG vocals!!!!
The Rapino Brothers produced the orignal (that also leaked a while ago). But this is my go-to version. It's such a good song and the vocal is fantastic. I believe BIR re-recorded it with her for inclusion on the cancelled CD2 of Where Is The Feeling? (or maybe the Time Will Pass You By single).
Assuming this version actually existed when the album was being put together, I can see why it, along with Love is Waiting were left off, even though I adore both, as they're a little too similar to ... Feeling? for a 10 track album.
I did not know this?
Didn't she also abandon the era midway through to go film Biodome and only pick up when she was done?
Agh! So they scrapped the 4th single because Nick Cave's Where the Wild Roses Grow came around.
(and probably after Where is the Feeling under-performed - which is a travesty because it's an amazing video edit and video)
I mean honestly even though I'd have liked a 4th single, she couldn't turn up the Nick Cave song.
Speaking of lost singles from around that time, I read that Mushroom Records wanted to release Kylie's cover of The Real Thing as a single. IP and Wild Rose were successes in Australia and it fits with that indie soundscape, but that Kylie didn't want it clashing with the upcoming pop sound of Light Years.
I'm not familiar with the original but I love the Kylie version. And the remixes are great.
Yes, though I believe it was the remix that was going to be the single, which in my eyes was pretty awful, all that 'do-da-be-do-da'-ing - it was the version she performed at T in the Park that summer as well.What was single #4 meant to be? Time Will Pass You By?
I think when she released Confide it was a bit of a novelty ‘oh look, cute Kylie is going through a grungy stage’ - then they realised it was here to stay and she was actually attempting to be seen as a credible artist, then people lost interest and the backlash started. Sadly, I don’t think anything she released at that time was going to work as the general public had checked out. Thankfully none of us fell into that category however!Yes, though I believe it was the remix that was going to be the single, which in my eyes was pretty awful, all that 'do-da-be-do-da'-ing - it was the version she performed at T in the Park that summer as well.
Biodome was such a mistake, and she really should've prioritised the music - Put Yourself was November, Feeling July, and relegated to one CD at the last minute. A single in March would've kept the campaign going much better.
