Stock Aitken Waterman re-releases
It's a great time to be a PWL/ Stock Aitken Waterman fan. Indie label Cherry Red has been steadily re-releasing classic PWL albums on CD such as the much sought Princess album and Hazell Dean's first album "heart first". September sees new releases from Boy Krazy, Sonia as well as Jason Donovan's PWL albums.
I received my first batch of re-releases this week. After months of doing nothing I finally got around to ordering Princess, Haywoode, Lonnie Gordon, Mandy Smith and Brilliant. The package came and I poured over the booklets with extensive liner notes (especially Haywoode, talk about eye strain!) and must say if you are a fan you have no excuse for picking up these amazing CDs.
With all the new releases coming I am still bummed that fans must wait for the genius of PWL singer Kakko's unreleased album (there is no sarcasm there BTW). "We should be dancing" is one of SAW's most irritatingly catchy and fun tracks. The fact it flopped so bad and has become somewhat of a forgotten gem makes it that more alluring. Until we get that album here is the mp3. Grab it while its available!
