Product Description

CD Description

Hazell Dean s classic 1988 album "Always" is given a long-awaited Deluxe Edition reissue on Cherry Pop. Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, Ian Levine, Trevor Vallis, Pete Hammond and Pete Ware, "Always" features a host of classic SAW singles Who s Leaving Who? (#4), a cover of Anne Murray s 1986 single, Maybe (We Should Call It A Day) (#15), Turn It Into Love (#21), originally an album track and subsequently a Japanese #1 for Kylie Minogue, plus the dancefloor favourites They Say It s Gonna Rain and Always Doesn t Mean Forever . Digitally re-mastered direct from master tapes held at the PWL, Abbey Road and Capitol Records archives, this Deluxe Edition brings together the original nine-track album with no less than 20 bonus tracks across two CDs. Added to the album and available on CD for the very first time are two sought-after 1986 singles: Stand Up , a Stock Aitken Waterman reworking of Umberto Tozzi s Hurrah , and E.S.P. (Extra Sensual Persuasion) , a cover of Millie Jackson s 1983 single. Bonus tracks also include rare B-sides, the 1987 U.S. 7" remix of the 1985 hit No Fool (For Love) , the original Dutch-only single version of Walk In My Shoes and many mixes previously unreleased in the UK or only available on vinyl. The extensive booklet also features additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, full lyrics and an exclusive track-by-track commentary written for this release by Hazell herself. The definitive doyenne of the Hi-NRG scene, Essex-born Hazell Dean found mainstream success in 1984 with the #6 hit Searchin (Gotta Find A Man) on the Proto label. The Stock Aitken Waterman-produced follow-up, Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go) , reached #4, giving the Hit Factory team their first Top Ten single and marking the beginning of a partnership with Hazell which continued until 1991. After the release of her 1985 album "Heart First", Hazell signed with EMI and a succession of releases over the next three years culminated with "Always", widely regarded as her best work. In the years since, Hazell has continued to write, produce and record, recently revisiting They Say It s Gonna Rain on Energise Records, as well as maintaining her profile as an evergreen club performer. This Deluxe Edition of "Always" follows the popular reissue of Hazell s "Heart First" and many other PWL-related titles on Cherry Pop, including Mel & Kim, Sinitta, Haywoode, Sonia, Big Fun, Brother Beyond, Pepsi & Shirlie and O chi Brown.

In its original release, `Always' was a much overlooked album - in spite of boasting the massive hit `Who's leaving Who', which took Hazell back in to the upper reaches of the charts after her 1984 successes with `Searchin' and `Whatever I Do'. This special edition is a nearly comprehensive set of mixes, single edits and rarities and comes complete with liner notes from Hazell for each track on the first disc. And lyrics fans are well catered for too - with a full set of lyrics for every song, plus there's a full Hazell discography in the booklet.

As with some other CD releases from Stock, Aitken & Waterman produced acts, the original CD issue of `Always' presented some of the singles in their radio versions and some as extended mixes. This deluxe edition presents the original album as a collection of single versions and album tracks, moving the remixes and extended versions to disc 2 or as bonuses on disc 1. This works well, and the first nine tracks are a dynamic reminder of just how good S/A/W albums could be. It's a treat for the fans too, as this is the first time a number of the single versions have been made available on CD.

The bonus tracks are well-selected. Among the highlights are an edit of `No Fool (For Love)', two rare remixes of `Turn it Into Love' and b-sides. Oddly though, whilst all of the commercially released remixes from the singles `Who's Leaving Who' and `Maybe' are present and correct, the original extended mix of `Turn it into Love' is missing - meaning that you'll have to track down the CD single to hear it. It's a little frustrating as some of the remixes here have been widely available on CD for some time.

Overall this is one of the best reissues Cherry Pop have released.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive edition of a fab album 16 May 2012
By downkiddie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was so pleased to receive this album. I still have this album on cassette from the first time around, but not having a player anymore it's one of several consigned to the back of a cupboard.

On playing this CD the opening bars of "Who's Leaving Who" immediately took me back to '88 in the blink of a (slightly misty) eye and I remembered why I enjoyed it so much the first time I heard it.

Hazell's album "Always" was a little unusual in that it collected together some of the singles she had released over the previous few years, together with some new songs. Several of these were presented on the original album in the 12" Extended version, even on the LP version, though as was commonplace at the time the CD and cassette had more tracks on.

This expanded edition instead uses the 7" versions of the songs as the basis for the album, covering the first 9 tracks on CD1. This is an improvement as each song is shorter and can be enjoyed as a collection of rather fabulous pop/dance tracks rather than long SAW extended mixes, building up from drum program with each element of the track being layered on top. Naturally all the 12" versions on the original album are here as bonus tracks, with a lot more besides.

We are treated to several B-sides and remixes, one of which (a 12" mix of "Turn It Into Love") is previously unreleased, in addition to the remastered original album. The remaining singles (such as "Stand Up" and "E.S.P.") which were not included on the first release are also included here, making it more of a complete album. The attractive booklet even has liner notes written by Hazell herself to accompany the release.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% recommended 22 Aug 2012
By Mr. D TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a review for: Always: Expanded Edition
Every now and then a release comes along that is genuinely exciting and gives the fans what they want. This is one of those times. The original CD of "Always" had a mixture of 12" versions and 7" versions, but on this double CD we now get the single versions and then the bonus tracks are the 12" versions and alternative mixes. So for the first time on CD we have the 7" versions of "Always Doesn't Mean Forever" & "Maybe (We Should Call It A Day)". Plus on bonus tracks we get the 7" Murray Mix of "No Fool (For Love)" and 7" & 12" mixes of "Stand Up" & "E.S.P. (Extra Sensual Persuasion)". We also get "Walk In My Shoes (Nightmare Mix)" which was only previously on a 12" single in Holland, and the B-Sides "Can't Get You Out Of My Mind", "Love Ends, Love Parts" and "Image In The Mirror". As if that isn't enough, there are also two 12" mixes of "Turn It Into Love" here for the first time, a house mix from the U.S. 12" and an unreleased Dave Ford mix. So the only track I can see missing that I would have expected to be here is the original 12" mix of "Turn It Into Love", but that is to be included on the forthcoming (at the time of writing this) Evergreen: The Very Best of Hazell Dean. With the original 7", 12", and Remix 12" mixes of "They Say It's Gonna Rain", "Maybe (We Should Call It a Day)" & "Who's Leaving Who", we are totally spoilt. This release is worth more than 5 stars and is how a reissue should be done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great re-release 18 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
I always loved this album from Hazell Dean.
Although it's more of a compilation than a studio album, with the inclusion of a single from 1985 and the initial exclusion of a few 1986 singles.

This is a great re-release, which includes the missing singles along with some rare mixes. My favourites are "Maybe" and "Always Doesn't Mean Forever", but "Stand Up" was always the stand out for me. It's a shame Hazell isn't really a fan of it, and am happy to see it finally included on the album.

Would have been good to see Hazell record more songs with SAW directly. The initial album before it's first release which didn't include "Maybe" or "Turn It Into Love". However with the huge success of "Who's Leaving Who", both were quickly recorded as a follow up single was needed.

Get your hands on this album, not just PWL fans, but for lovers of the 80s and Hi NRG.
