  1. I did and it's a thing of beauty! I still think her debut is her best album by a mile.

    If it's good enough for Debbie to have a multi disc CD/DVD set it's certainly good enough for Tiffany!

  2. Thankfully we have the retrochart!

  3. It made #24 for me in 1991, albeit at a very competitive time. I won't try and rewrite history.
  4. You have until 2027 to change your mind…..

  5. My copy of the I'm Talking 2CD arrived from down under today. Presently nicely, sounds good and most of it is brand new to me, so a welcome addition. I appreciate 'less is more' in some cases, but it's puzzling why they've not made use of the 35 minutes spare on CD1, or the 20 minutes spare on CD2, yet have quite a few additional tracks included in the digital bundle.

    Totally unrelated, but whilst I was listening to it, I spotted this tweet about RSD on Twitter, from one of the participating shops;

    £18 for a 7" single... just further confirmation this event is wildly out of control, whatever good intentions it may have began with. Well done this shop for speaking up.

  6. Which is a shame because the emphasis on it keeping independent stores open is to be applauded. the over expensive 'records only' arent.

  7. Why Record Store Day is all about vinyl ? Like Record Stores only sell vinyls ? Really ?
    I know, labels are sooo happy for those different vinyls and their crazy prices...

  8. Michael Jay, song writer of The Slightest Touch, If I Say Yes has posted this on his facebook :

    'It won't be released until June 29th, but Five Star's new 10-CD definitive anthology "Luxury" is already the #1 best-seller on Amazon. At £70 in pre-orders it's out-selling Pink's current album which costs only £8. The collection obviously includes my hits "The Slightest Touch" and "If I Say Yes". What a great way to prepare for the release of Five Star's all-new studio album which we've just started working on. Get ready for the return of Five Star. #FiveStar #FiveStarLuxury'
  9. Ooh good news that Five Star are coming back-and using the writers of some of their best work-exciting!
  10. Interesting - but not surprising - that superdeluxeediton hasn't mentioned the Five Star box set...

  11. I hope it's not the all new 5 Star line up making a return with a new album (Deniece with 4 other stand ins, which have been parading as 5 Star for live appearances).

    Be great if they have managed to get all 5 to agree to a new album. I can imagine it may appear on Pledge soon.

  12. I hope 5 Star can produce an album of new material as good as The Fizz did last year.

  13. Probably waiting until the tracklist is announced, I hope.

  14. Oh, if he wants to I'm sure Paul will ignore the dadrock apologist snobs and feature it eventually.

  15. It's a shame that this recording falls outside the 1988-1991 remit of the new Kirsty MacColl box set. It needs to be released commercially, perhaps as part of a Kirsty MacColl demo collection.

  16. One of my favourite Tracey Ullman songs, but Kirsty sings this so well!
  17. Bow Wow Wow just showed-up as one of my Amazon pre-order recommendations.
  18. I think that SDE has a piece on the box set scheduled to go up this week... I actually think he's probably awaiting a confirmed track list. Not much of an article without one, eh?

  19. Considering the second unreleased album, Real is apparently a legal nightmare and unlikely to ever see the light of day in full, I'm not surprised we never get any of those early 80s unreleased tracks. The ones which were included in the From Croydon To Cuba box set were the only ones they could include apparently, as the paperwork for the rest is lost and no one knows who wrote/performed what or who even owns the material in some cases. Her ex-husband Steve Lillywhite said quite a long time ago that he's remastered it all as best he can and it's there, ready to go, should anyone ever be able to settle the legal issues. It's all terribly sad.

    This is everything I know about the era...

    Never on CD but released on Vinyl

    Boys - BUY57 - 1979 B-side
    I Don't Need You - POSP225 - 1981 B-side

    Unreleased 'Real' album [1981-83]

    01 Berlin^

    03 Bad Dreams
    04 Man With No Name
    05 Germany
    06 Time

    ^I think this is the re-recording done for the North of Watford label, issued as a 7" with Rhythm Of The Real Thing* on the B-side in late 1983

    *Included on 'From Croydon To Cuba' box set

    I believe You Broke My Heart In 17 Places would've been on the second Stiff album, had she not left for Polydor in 1981, along with You Caught Me Out*, which was a cancelled single and another one inherited by Tracey Ullman. It's worth noting that a different (remixed?) version of You Caught Me Out is on 'The Big Stiff Box Set'.
  20. I love every somg Tracey released/covered. Whoever A&R'd that project knocked it out of the park. It lead me to discover so many "originals" I never would have otherwise. Her 2 Disc Stiff collection gets heavy rotation at my house.
