Yeah Baby! If number 5 didn't do it for you HIGH-ENERGY VOLUME 6 sure did! They add the biggie right up front: Man 2 Man's"Male Stripper". Sheesh! Remember that song. I loved it, it has so much energy in it - that bassline and that riff! It was considered "too sexual" at my school, so they DJ's were banned from playing it at school dances - welcome to South Africa in the 80's!
Apart from Male Stripper there are fab tracks on this one too.
Commercial stuff from Boys' Don't Cry and Modern Talking. The London Boys make a nice debut. Aleph, Gipsey and Queen, Joy Peters, Patty Ryan, Taffy, Riki Maltese, Lee Marrow, Joe Yellow make up a brilliant dance album. A slower remix of Midnight Passion's"I Need Your Love" is in there, along with the brilliantly spooky "Cocoon" by Timerider (adapted from the movie by the same name).
Around this time Gary van Riet and Mark Baker (who engineered this one too) came out with the release of the Eurobeat series. Andrew Wood returns with another good mix here. Lee Selsick does a good cover as well. There are side names to here! Yay! A good album but the best is still (yes till) to come .....
