Jannetta - Breathless (1988) & Mark On My Heart (1991) DOUBLE POST!! MP3/Flac

Well, the shut-down of Megaupload is a bummer, but I'm not going to let that get me down. So I'm doing another post already! I realized when posting the last post that the amazing Tobysheldonla also sent me two albums by Jannetta some time ago, and I totally forgot to share them on here! Thanks again T! I featured Jannetta's single "Mark On My Heart" on Lost Pop Treasures in 2010, but only linked to her bio there. In more detail, Patti Jannetta grew up in Toronto, where she became part of the touring cast of Jesus Christ Superstar. From that experience she released a self-titled album (using her full name Patti Jannetta) in 1981 on a small label, Janta (that album is almost impossible to get ahold of now). A couple singles were released to moderate success in her hometown. She toured the world to promote the album, to little success, and then fell into the background. It wasn't until 1988 that she re-emerged on the music scene simply as Jannetta, reinventing herself as a dance-pop diva. She released the album Breathless on the better known Trilogy label, and two singles, "Name Of The Game" and "Party Girl", the second of which became a minor club hit in Canada and for which she was nominated for a Juno. I mentioned on Lost Pop Treasures that her performance of the track on the local dance show Electric Circus is forever burned into my memory, as at the time anyone from off of the street was allowed to dance on the show, and the dancers surrounding her were simply hilarious. I have that performance on a videotape somewhere and one day hope to upload it to Youtube. Anyway, she again toured around the world and this time got a lot more love. After extensive touring, she managed to record a second album for Trilogy in 1991. Three singles were released, including the mid-tempo "I Know You'll Wait" and the ballad "Even Though You're Gone". The title track, "Mark On My Heart" was a club hit a couple years after the album's release. She toured with previous Isle postee Manee throughout Europe and Manee's native Thailand, and apparently a documentary on Manee entitled Superstar was filmed, with Jannetta appearing in it. She also did backing vocals on Manee's album. In 1993 she co-wrote the song "Tell Me You Love Me" for another Isle postee, Carol Medina, and was presented a Canadian Diamond record for one million units sold. Since then she has put her music career on the backburner, becoming a steadfast volunteer for various causes and holding several different positions in the music industry. She has been Director of Canadian Music Week, President of The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Music and the Arts, and Artistic Director of The Mississauga Waterfront Festival. She also still occasionally performs with The Patti Jannetta Band and as a guest vocalist for legendary Canadian country artist Ronnie Hawkins.
