Product Description

DIVINE (born Harris Glenn Milstead) was a drag performer who came to prominence as a cult movie star appearing in several John Waters films such as Pink Flamingos, Polyester and Hairspray. In 1979 Divine released the dance single Born To Be Cheap , and although the track didn t make a huge impact it started a new chapter in his career where he released a succession of camp and fun dance hits which filled the floors of predominantly gay club nights throughout the 80's. DIVINE is hugely respected cult figure in both the film and music world and still a great inspiration to many people due to his exuberant persona and performances. Cherry Pop is very proud to present MAID IN ENGLAND, expertly remastered and complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. MAID IN ENGLAND is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Dance, Disco and Pop fans out there!

Although released after Divine's untimely passing, this collection of singles and b-sides was billed as his first proper album. And rightly so. It's a cohesive mix of Hi-NRG dance classics that were sizeable hits in the UK at the time, even getting Divine banned from TOTP for his outrageous performance!
This album was originally released on CD in Germany by ZYX and subsequently by Tring in the UK under the title "You Think You're A Man", and has been long out of print. So it's great to see it given the Cherry Red reissue treatment. The bonus 'Trumpet Mix' of "Hey You!" has been dropped from its German counterpart (and to be honest, there was very little difference between this mix and the version on the album anyway) and the 12" versions of "You Think You're A Man", "I'm So Beautiful" and "Walk Like A Man" have been added instead. The colour of the cover has also been changed from yellow to the more appropiate pink. And it sounds FANtastic!
A special mention also needs to be made for the superb artwork. The jewel cased CD contains a lovely 12 page booklet; with a biography, relevant UK discography and full page reproductions of those classic single sleeves. Divine stuff!
Highly recommended and top marks to Cherry Red for another superb reissue!

Loved Divine in the 80s! You Think You're A Man 12 inch was a night club classic,as soon as this came on,the dance floor was heaving! Stock Aitkin and waterman worked their magic on this hit and I'm So Beautiful. This release was a godsend as my 12 inch vinyl is long gone.5 stars to cherry pop for including these must have extended versions!!

A superb collection of some of the most entertaining PWL-productions at the time. Many of them still works today. But why, WHY, is the original dance version of Twistin The Night Away missing?! Such a shame! It was much better than the featured remix, and all the effort to give the buyers a complete set of mixes got lost. Would have been 5/5 if been included. Divine is missed. Bless you, dear angel.

You Think You're A Man is worth £10 alone! I can remember discovering this track when looking through a DJ's record box - the 12" cover got my attention, who, what is this?? Needless to say I 'borrowed' the 12" single and took it home to have listen. It was stunning - i'd never heard anything like it before - it was so uplifting and full of power, I adored it. I still know very little about Divine and to be honest, i'm not a true fan of his voice. The 12" single has since got astray and i always wanted a remastered/CD edition of the track and that glorious 12" mix. Needless to say, I became addicted to that Stock, Aiken and Waterman sound - yes it became very watered down from 1987 onwards but to me, its melodic, was the sound of my youth and I can still hear You Think You're A Man in every track SAW produced!

This review is for: Maid In England (Expanded Edition)

The album is enjoyable camp Hi-NRG pop, lightweight and fun. What we have here is a very straight-forward reissue of the previously released edition, now adding 3 bonus 12" mixes; "You Think You're A Man", "I'm So Beautiful" and "Walk Like A Man". The sound quality on these 3 tracks is noticeably improved from previous CDs. However, with the inclusion of these 12" mixes it would have made more sense to drop the two edits of "You Think You're A Man" and "I'm So Beautiful". Both of these are identical versions only with the intros crudely chopped off. "You Think Your A Man" is 8:02 with a 2:16 intro on the full 12" version, edited to 6:59 with a minute of the intro chopped off on the shorter version. "I'm So Beautiful" is similarly edited from 7:53 to 7:08. So effectively these 2 tracks are included twice and take up disc space that could have been otherwise utilised. The reclaimed 15 minutes of disc space would have allowed for the 12" version of "Hard Magic" and/or the 7" mixes of the singles; "I'm So Beautiful" and "Walk Like A Man". None of these tracks have appeared on CD so far. It is of course possible that the master tapes no longer exist. One thing I especially like in the booklet is that photographs of all of the single covers are included and given a full page for each. That's a nice touch.

IT IS NO SECRET THAT DIVINE COULDN'T REALLY SING!!! THIS DIDN'T STOP HIM FROM HAVING A FANTASTIC RECODING CAREER. PWL/ STOCK /AITKEN / WATERMAN / NOT ONLY PRODUCED THIS ALBUM BUT WROTE A LOT OF THE MATERIAL. THIS RECORD IS A CLASSIC & EVERYONE WHO EVEN GOES CLUBBING KNOWS ALL OF DIVINE'S HITS. I LOVE THIS RECORD & I AM SO HAPPY THAT CHEERY POP RECORDS INCLUDED THE 12' REMIXES. SOME OF THIS REMIXES WERE ONLY AVAILABLE ON VINYL. I RECCOMEND THIS ALBUM TO ANYONE WHO LOVES REAL DANCE MUSIC FROM THE 80'S. CHEERS.
