Top customer reviews
Not that this unsuccessful album was bad, far from it. 'Just One Night' is a most appealing collection of fun pop songs, definitely with an American market pitch (look no further than the song 'Spirit of America', one of her finest singles, which should have been a major hit when it was released in 1992, but instead, it did nothing) which should satisfy fans of Sam's music. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite on par with her classic 1986 debut, or her self-entitled follow-up, so upon the first listen, you might not find as many real 'instant' favourites.
The funky lead single and album opener '(Hurt Me, Hurt Me) But the Pants Stay On' is a terrific, upbeat pop number, and a contrast to the slower, sexy, tongue-in-cheek title track. These two songs really are as cheesy as could have possibly been, complete with suggestive conversations between Sam and various men in between her singing, but wonderfully so. Some people might well regard them as cringey and embarrassing, but I think that this added banter only adds to the charm.
The pretty lady with the good voice and infectious personality has always considered herself as a 'rock chick', and the aforementioned 'Spirit of America', and her cover of the Kiss song 'I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night' (added as one of the re-issue's bonus tracks) definitely have that vibe. My favourite of all the singles, 'Another Woman (Too Many People)' is very catchy track about a woman suspecting her partner of being unfaithful, and deserved to see some chart action at least. Her melody of the songs 'More, More, More!' and 'Love to Love You Baby' is irresistible, the lush ballad 'Nothing You Do, Nothing You Say', as well as the pop pearl 'Don't Wait Up', alongside the cheeky 'Don't Cry Wolf are other notable highlights.
The bottom line is, 'Just One Night' is yet another jewel in the Fox's pop crown, though not as strong overall as her most famous albums which had set the international music charts alight only a few years previously.
In 2012, with input from Sam (who writes a message to her fans in the booklet, and contributes her own memories on the tracks) herself, Cherry Pop Records re-issued her first four studio albums, and did a marvellous job.
The remastered edition expands the fun even further with another CD. On the bonus disc, you will find lots of alternative remixes, as well the original 1991 version of one of my all-time favourite Sam singles, 'Go For The Heart', which she would later enter for Eurovision, as an extra track on the first CD. Also on this disc, which is expanded by six more tracks is her fun cover of Annie Lennox's 'Walking On Broken Glass' (one of several tracks on herewhich have remained unreleased until now), and 'Hot Lovin', one of Samantha's finest rockers. In addition to all of this, the generous package also comes with accompanying booklet, which is colourful, loaded with lovely photographs of this gorgeous girl, memorabilia, song lyrics, and extensive liner notes by famed British writer and TV presenter Alan Connor. Like all of the other Sam Fox deluxe editions from Cherry Pop, 'Just One Night' is a collector's delight, and the definitive version of this overlooked album.
This album was already one of Sam's best in its original 11 track version despite not having any big hits on it and this reissue takes things to a new level making this an essential album. The Full Force and Clivilles & Cole (of C&C Music Factory fame) produced tracks really shine here, some of which could have made good singles (someone at the record company must have agreed with this, because "Don't Wait Up" is included as a 12" version within the previously unreleased bonus tracks). "What You See Is What You Get" particularly could have been a hit with a great Pop/Rock hybrid style, which has a sort of Joan Jett (I Love Rock 'N' Roll) flavour to it. So, I feel maybe the choice of singles and the release order may have been at fault for not giving this album greater success and recognition at the time. The original album version of "Another Woman (Too Many People)" was a slight letdown on this album because the single mixes from Phil Harding & Ian Curnow were so much better (their 12" mix is here as a bonus track - first time on CD. Their 7" version is on Sam's Greatest Hits from 2009, which I can also recommend). Languishing in the vaults and here as a bonus track is a rap version, previously unreleased because Sam didn't think the rap was good enough. She was right and that was a good decision at the time. I personally would have left it gathering dust, but it is the only track here I didn't like. Although it is interesting and may be of interest to other fans.
When it comes to the bonus tracks here, Cherry Pop really spoil us by adding an amazing 23, bringing the total number of tracks to 34 spread over a generous 2 discs. Not only do we get extended mixes, instrumentals and alternative versions, but also unreleased tracks, such as Sam's versions of the Annie Lennox hit "Walking On Broken Glass" & Donna Summer's "Love To Love You Baby". This sounds like terrible ideas on paper, but actually Sam pulls it off and offers a nice alternative to the originals. We also get a previously unreleased Stock Aitken Waterman production "Forever True", which is superb.
One of the real highlights for me here is Sam's version of the Stock Aitken Waterman-written Boy Krazy song "That's What Love Can Do". It was never completed and lay untouched in the vaults all these years. Matt Pop has gone into the studio armed with the original sounds from the time (supplied by Pete Waterman's team) to finish it off in the style it would have been back in the early 90's. Being a huge S/A/W & PWL fan, I wasn't convinced that this would sound authentic. I listened closely here and can give both mixes a huge thumbs up for accurately portraying how this could have sounded had it been completed around that time. There are additional flourishes that PWL would not have added back then, but remind me of the more recent Pete Hammond retro mixes, so that's a good thing because it sounds fresh. It is so joyful that I actually have tears in my eyes (tears of joy!) each time I listen to this (that is a very rare experience for me). It takes me straight back to the days I would buy everything with a PWL connection and I miss those days (although thanks to Cherry Pop mining the PWL vaults, it feels like 1988 all over again). If all this wasn't already enough, Matt Pop has also performed the same trick on another unfinished S/A/W song, "A Second Chance" (the extended mix is reminiscent of Sonia's "Counting Every Minute" Tick-Tock remix with nice added scratch effects and synth stabs similar to Alex Party's "Don't Give Me Your Life" - Nice work!). Finishing off two songs and also creating extended versions is a lot of work to go to for a reissue of what had originally been a flop album and I really appreciate this extra effort... and for bringing me such joy. I'm sure alot of other people appreciate it too.
I buy a ridiculous amount of CD's (I probably need therapy for my addiction) and this is easily my favourite album of 2012. I can't recommend this highly enough (can you get a higher recommendation than "It gave me tears of joy"?). All 4 of these Sam Fox reissues are first class and Sam's involvement and notes against each song in the booklets are a nice touch because it feels more personal.
By the way, I have also reviewed the other 3 Samantha Fox reissues: Touch Me ~ Deluxe Edition,Samantha Fox ~ Deluxe Edition,I Wanna Have Some Fun ~ Deluxe Edition
