This issue’s review comes from Alan Jones of Music Week, the BACARDI Beat Chart compiler.
When pop historians look back at 1992 they will surely note the inordinate number of oldies given a new lease of life, either directly through re-release or indirectly via re-recording. It’s the latter category that we concentrate on in this issue, as a number of upcoming dance hits are nothing more than old hits revisited - though some have been changed very significantly along the way. r
Bill Withers’ ‘Lovely Day’ is always welcome in any guise, and red hot production duo Clivilles & Cole have reworked it as ‘lt’s Gonna Be A Lovely Day’. llow credited to The SOUL System featuring Michelle Visage, it’s been stylisth overhauled in a variety of mixes (six), of which the best feature a female rapper (Michelle) filling the gap between choruses with a friendly rap over a backbeat lifted from James Brown’s ‘Funky Drummer’. Meanwhile, Undercover follow up their hit singles ‘Baker Street’ and ‘llever Let ller Slip Away’ with virtually a whole album’s worth of remakes. Indeed, the only original songs on their album, ‘Check
Out The Groove’ are ‘Sha Bang’ and ‘Sha Do’, the B-sides of their two singles. These apart, they stick tirme to the bright house style revamp they share with KWS and East Side Beat.
What’s most intriguing is that the songs they have chosen to take to the dance floor include some very unlikely candidates - Gallagher & Lyle’s ‘I Wanna Stay With You’, Foreigner’s ‘Waitlng For A Girl Like You’, Bruce Hornsby’s ‘The Way It ls’ among them. A likeable party album that will spin off several more hits.
Tim Laws first came to my attention a couple of months ago when he produced an ltalo house/rave version of The Beatles’ ‘Eleanor Blgby’ for the Lonely People. flow, as half of the duo iletwork he has shamelessly reworked Mr Mlster’s 1985 hit ‘Broken Wings’ in a style not far removed from Bage’s ‘ltun To You’. Released at the end of the month on Chrysalis, it sounds like a hit, and has already won approval from Mr Mlster’s Steve Page, who co-wrote the song.
Finally, Secret Life’s progressive house version of Stevie Wonder’s ‘As Always’ is dynamite, and crashes into Bacardi’s exclusive chart of Scottish club hits at number seven.
BACARDI rum was first produced in 1862 by Don Facundo Bacardi and is still imported from the Caribbean.
