Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accommodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Todays mystery album was released in 14 aptil 1983, it was co-produced by Chic's Nile Rodgers. The title track of the album became one of the artist's biggest hit singles, reaching number 1 in the UK, the US and various other countries. Further singles included "Modern Love" and "China Girl", which both reached number 2 in the UK. Latter was actually a new version of a song which he had co-written with Iggy Pop for the latter's 1977 album The Idiot. The album also contains a rerecorded version of the soundtrack song "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" which had been a minor hit for Bowie a year earlier. It has sold 6 million copies worldwide, making it the artist's best-selling album. A 24bit remaster found it's way here
