TOP 500 REVIEWERon 9 November 2016
She remains the most popular Page 3 girl in history, but as Samantha Fox has said herself recently, she would prefer to be remembered by the British public as a pop singer. She was, and still is a singer, and a very successful one at that. The lovable Sam has had hit records all over the world, and has continued to tour in various countries constantly since the chart success waned in the early '90s.

Her debut album is a classic pop record of the 1980s. 'Touch Me' was released in 1986, and was certified Silver in the UK. As well as making her a musical star in America, it made it's top ten mark in countries such as Germany, Sweden, Norway, Canada, and in Finland, it topped the charts.

The album spawned her signature song, and first ever single 'Touch Me (I Want Your Body)', which was a huge international smash, as well as the subsequent big hits 'Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me)', the surprisingly completely rockabilly 'Hold On Tight', and the adorable 'I'm All You Need'. Other great tracks include 'Suzie, Don't Leave Me With Your Boyfriend', and 'It's Only Love'. Although essentially a 'pop' record, from the start Sam's music always had a rock-chick vibe, and her songs were raunchy, no innocent bubblegum fluff here. Many former models (like TV soap stars) have tried their hand at singing, but Samantha Fox had a set of pipes on her, as well as the other.

In 2012, with input from Sam herself, Cherry Pop Records re-issued her first four studio albums, and did a marvellous job. Now available as a two-disc package here: Touch Me Deluxe Edition, 'Touch Me' now contained a bonus disc filled with alternative mixes and B sides, as well as an accompanying booklet, which is colourful, loaded with lovely photographs, song lyrics, a discography, and extensive liner notes. I don't think that a better re-issue of 'Touch Me', which is 30 years old this year, could have materialised.

Whilst the guys were 'ogling' Ms. Fox for 'bigger things' and missing her real talent - I was buying her records!

This was one of several great albums from the former Model who proved she could not only show off her body - but sing as well - and she couls really do it too! Unlike today of course, this was not so easily come across in those days.

She burst into the charts with a massive catchy number called: 'Touch Me' - featured here on this fab. album. It was also done as a great 12" single - and also as a limited edition on velvety blue vinyl too! Several more hits followed on from this album. This also includes a cover version from the earlier pop group: 'Tight Fit' - 'Baby I'm Lost For Words', and featuring some very good and catchy album material. This made me want to buy her follow-up album which was simply self-titled.

For me, Sam Fox will always be best-remembered for her pop career.

Good on you Sam - not just a pretty face!

Don't take this CD seriously and you'll love it! It's fun and has some great pop tunes that you may have forgotten about. Touch Me, Do Ya Do Ya Wanna Please Me, All You Need and Hold On Tight were all hits but the CD also offers some great album tracks such as Baby I'm Lost For Words and the ultimate crap pop song - Suzie Don't leave me With Your Boyfriend!! So bad it's good. Sam was an eighties icon and this album was a bit of fun that turned into a career changing experience for her. Sam went on to be a massive success in the USA. Where she was an unknown and was only judged on the music she was producing. So there must have been something more to her than just being a page three Stunna! A corker of a pop album in my opinion.

Page 3 stunner Samantha Fox's first album with the top 10 hits 'Touch me' and 'Do ya do Ya' and top 30 hit 'Hold on tight'. Its a bit of a mixed bag with its highs (Touch me) and appaling lows (Suzie don't leave me with your boyfriend). This being an import edition has 2 'american' rock tracks 'Rockin in the city' and 'Wild kinda love' which replace the 2 tracks on the UK cd 'Its only love' and 'Drop me a line'. Sam certainly got better as the cd's went on and unfortunately her first was her worst, better off buying a hits cd with a better selection(or at least more tracks !!)
