This review is for: Samantha Fox ~ Deluxe Edition
These deluxe editions of the Samantha Fox albums are jam-packed with not only the original album tracks, but also 7" mixes, 12" mixes and remixes. We even get the instrumentals, so no stone is unturned here. This is a great comprehensive archive of all the mixes from this period and I was particularly pleased to get the 12" version of "I Promise You (Get Ready)". "Hot Tonight" the previously unreleased original version of "Hot For You" is particularly good also. The variety on this album is excellent where Stock Aitken Waterman's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now" rubs shoulders with the Laura Branigan-esque "I Surrender (To the Spirit Of the Night)" via Full Force's funky "Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)". If you're new to this album and these mixes then you are in for a real treat, because we are really spoilt with the abundance of mixes here. In fact, most fans won't have all of this because a lot of it is previously unreleased. Unfortunately on Disc 2 the tracks are in a different order to what is listed on the inlay, but that is not a huge issue. There are also some mixes I don't like here, but for the sake of completeness I am pleased they are all included, however for me personally I am not keen on any of the versions of Rolling Stones "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" - You can't beat the original. Though much as I don't like it, I am sure there are many people who do. Over all, this is another superb Cherry Pop release and a good one-stop chance to obtain all the mixes from this period in one convenient package.
By the way, I have also reviewed the other 3 Samantha Fox reissues: Touch Me ~ Deluxe Edition, I Wanna Have Some Fun ~ Deluxe Edition, Just One Night ~ Deluxe Edition
