Product description

Product Description

Disco Recharge is proud to present both of Miquel Brown’s classic albums in one 2 x CD set. This time we set out to do something different. Instead of just giving you the original albums (which have been on CD before) we decided to mix things up a bit. So whilst this Disco Recharge edition has the same running order as the original albums we have substituted some of the album versions with rare 12” versions and remixes. To make this set even more collectible we’ve added bonus tracks to both discs.

Miquel Brown provided legendary producer Ian Levine with some of his biggest hits in the early-mid 80’s. The album ‘Manpower’ was released in 1983 and was firmly aimed firmly at the gay dance floor but spread so much further than that. ‘So Many Men, So Little Time’ was a defining moment of the UK Hi-NRG scene and a worldwide smash. We include it here in three rare versions. ‘Beeline’ was another huge club hit and is represented here by both the Gary Otto and Mike Mayberry remixes for the first time on CD. Also included in its’ original extended album version is the mega hit ‘He’s A Saint, He’s A Sinner’.

Due to the huge worldwide success of ‘Manpower’ Ian Levine and Fiachra Trench set about making a follow up album - ‘Close To Perfection’ which was released in 1985. The title track was a departure from the frantic Hi-NRG of the ‘Manpower’ album and as a result became a huge ‘sleaze’ anthem at the infamous ‘Saint’ club, so included on this set are the ‘US M & M Remix’ and the ‘UK album version’. Another smash club hit was ‘Black Leather’ which is more in keeping with the Hi-NRG sound and here included in both the ‘Original 12” Mix’ and ‘UK album version’.

Both albums are examples of Ian Levine at his finest and as such are held in high esteem on the UK and worldwide gay scene. This Disco Recharge features sleeve notes by Simon White which include conversations with Ian Levine conducted especially for this release.
