Product Description

Rick Astley burst onto the pop scene in the summer of 1987 with "Never Gonna
Give You Up", which stormed to # 1 in the UK and the US, selling a million
copies in the US alone, and finished 1987 as the UK's best selling single that
year. The album reached number 1 in the UK in November, while selling two
million copies in the US.
* Produced by the hit factory that was Stock, Aitken and Waterman, Astley's
baritone voice appealed to record buyers of all ages, underlined when he took
Nat `King' Cole's "When I Fall In Love" to # 2 for Christmas 1987. "Whenever
You Need Somebody" reached 3, whilst "Together Forever" peaked at # 2 in
the UK, but hit # 1 again in the US.
* Compiled by PWL consultant Tom Parker, this deluxe 2 CD release presents the rare extended 12" mixes and remixes and the non-album
b-sides, the majority of which appear on CD for the first time. There are four different remixes of "Never Gonna Give You Up" for starters,
as well as all five mixes of Rick's rare debut single "When You Gonna", which was credited to Rick and Lisa Fabien. All this adds up to over
150 minutes of Rick Astley!
* The booklet features full annotation by Tom Parker as well as the singles sleeves. With Pete Waterman announcing his intention to write
the UK's Eurovision entry, there is bound to be renewed interest in the PWL 80s classics!

Rick Astley's debut album was one of the finest of the PWL produced albums from the late 80's and I almost wore out my cassette copy back in the day!! This re-mastered re-issue is simply fan-tastic!!!!!!
The sound quality is phenomenal - no more will I have to listen to my vinyl rips cos at last ALL the 12" mixes are included as well as the original album on this 2 CD set. Have ordered the 2 Disc set of "Hold Me In Your Arms" already!
If you love all things S/A/W and want them in fantastic quality, get this before it goes out of print! I am positive these re-issues will be highly sought after in a few years to come! BRILLIANT!

Contains 4 of his 6 top ten hits. Even though songs like together forever sound very dated, songs like never gonna give you up, even today are still good to listen to. Couple these songs to rick's amazing voice and you get a 5 star album.

Edsel Records and Sony/BMG have contributed to creating an ideal format for a reissue. They have strived to include all the remixes and extra tracks that go along with this CD. The sound quality is amazing and the layout is great. Also very meticulous liner notes and informative. Nothing about this reissue or Rick's other PWL CD "Hold Me In Your Arms" has been skimped on. Plus the price is so reasonable. I can only hope for more PWL reissues. What about the Och'i Brown album that has never been on CD ever.

This is a great S/A/W produced album with top ten hits such as Together Forever and Never Gonna Give you up. While these two songs can be found on many SAW compilations as well as any 80's compilation, the rest of the album is brillant! The production is typical S/A/W fare, but you have to admit, their sound is very unique. Add that together with Rick's great voice and you have yourself a hit album!

Young Englishman Rick turned into an overnight superstar with this album which contains the universal hits Never Gonna Give You Up, Together Forever, Whenever You Need Somebody and When I Fall In Love. It comes as no surprise that each of the 4 singles above has reached the #1 spot somewhere around the world. With slick production from Stock/Aitken/Waterman and Phil Harding/Ian Curnow, the PWL team turned the tables on everyone and came up with a multi-platinum album. The best thing about Rick is of course his voice. The roar of a lion coming from the depths of a human. The songs written and produced by SAW are superb and brilliant and it took Rick's vocal to make them superior. White kid singing Motown songs. Never Gonna Give You Up is in the running for the best pop song of all time. Rick contributes 4 of his own songs in this album but they don't have the crunch of the SAW songs but No More Looking For Love and The Love Has Gone are solid. It's a great album to have and the sleeve is cool including a small essay on Rick. Buy it or be square!
