5.0 out of 5 stars So many hits..., 1 Jun 2014
Miquel Brown gave Record Shack their first big hit in 1983 with the classic anthem "So many men". A fabulous singer, who between 1983 - 1989 notched up an impressive list of dance hits for both Record Shack and Ian Levine's Nightmare label. This stunning release brings us Miquel's two albums from 1983 & 1985, including extended versions & remixes. At home singing both hinrg disco and soul, Miquel shines on both sets, and the production work is impressive. Check out the tracks "Beeline" and Close to perfection". Wonderful to see these classic albums repackaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hinrg Divas special edition, 1 Jun 2014
Evelyn Thomas was one of the outstanding Hinrg disco divas of the 80's. Notching up a string of impressive club hits across the globe. Working with top class DJ & record producer Ian Levine, Evelyn scored with hits such as "Masquerade" "Heartless"
"Standing at the crossroads" and the commercial hit "High Energy". The lovely people at Disco Recharge" have beautifully packaged her two albums, and included rare mixes and extended versions originally released in 12" format on Levine's Nightmare label.
If you love upbeat, melodic dance music, you should definitely check this out.

3.0 out of 5 stars It has some bite...., 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do enjoy a good shark movie, but as we all know...trying to top "JAWS" is almost impossible!
This is one of the better offerings in this particular sub genre. The sfx are not too bad, considering it probably had a small budget. The acting is passable. One to watch on a Friday evening with a pizza..I can also recommend "Shark Attack" from 1999 starring Casper Van Dien.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect pop album from 1985, 1 Dec 2013
This was Marilyn's debut pop album released in 1985. It contains all his five chart singles including "Cry and be free" "You don't love me" & "Calling your name". My favourite track is the pop/funk track "Baby U left me in the cold" which was released in April 1985.
Its almost like a "Greatest hits" package.
If you love catchy, melodic pop then this album is highly recommended. Most of the songs were penned by Marilyn. Good production values and vocals.

Huge fan of the Halloween series. I have collected all the films in this media book series. You get the blu ray, DVD & soundtrack CD. All packaged in a cool case and a colour information booklet. If you like this, also check out the Halloween 4-6 media books.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous UK Hinrg!, 22 Jun 2013
This review is from: High Energy (Audio CD)
Evelyn Thomas first hit the charts in the 1970's, working with top producer, Ian Levine. In 1984 she released the classic dance anthem "High Energy" which sold 5 million copies worldwide.
This was followed by further club smashes like "Reflections" "Masquerade" & "How many hearts". In 1986 Evelyn moved over to Nightmare Records and released a further string of club favourites like "Tightrope" "No win situation" & This is Madness"
This fantastic album showcases both the talents of the Diva, and her producer Ian Levine.

Miquel Brown burst onto the Hinrg disco scene back in 1983 with her 2 million selling club track "So many men, so little time". This was followed by further hits such as "Manpower" "Beeline" and "Close to perfection" the latter becoming a cult hit at the famous Saint club in New York.
In 1986 Miquel released the single "Footprints in the Sand" which was a hit in the UK Record Mirror club charts. This was followed by "This Time its Real" in 1989.
A popular singer and actor, based in London. This is a superb compilation of all her hits during her time at Record Shack and Nightmare Records, working with long time collaborator, Ian Levine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice selection of 80's HI-NRG, 21 Mar 2013
This review is from: Summer Dance Energy (Audio CD)
This is a nice selection of rare 80's HI-NRG dance tracks produced by Ian Levine on his Nightmare record label between 1986 - 1989. No bad tracks on here, all top notch floor fillers by Diva's such as Earlene Bentley, Barbara Pennington, etc..
Worth getting hold of!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Always" the best..., 13 Nov 2012
HAZELL DEAN is the undisputed queen of HI-NRG/Eurobeat dance music. During the mid to late 1980's she had a stream of International club & chart smashes including "Evergreen" "Walk in my Shoes" "ESP" & "Your my Rainbow" and the more commercial pop hits like "Searchin" "Always doesn't mean forever" "Maybe we should call it a day" & "Who's Leaving Who?". Many of these chart toppers were produced by the PWL powerhouse team! Hazell also worked with top rated producers such as Ian Levine.
This is an amazing compilation and "musical history" of one of pop music's most successful and endearing Diva's. As with all Cherry Pop releases, much care and attention has gone into the whole package, not just the music itself, but the artwork and notes by the lady herself.
I originally bought "Always" when it was released on Vinyl back in 1988. So good to finally have these wonderful dance tunes on this CD package.
If you appreciate catchy melodies, thoughtful lyrics and a stunning vocal..this is definitely for you!

My rating..10/10
