Three classic PWL albums were given a right royal re-release in the UK early last year. Classic Stock Aitken Waterman releases from Mandy Smith, Princess and Lonnie Gordon were re-released with bonus tracks and remixes through Cherry Pop Records. The company was also responsible for releasing a Sinitta best-of in the UK towards the end of last year.
The tradition looks set to continue this year, with Cherry Pop announcing that it will release Big Fun's classic 'A Pocketful Of Dreams' CD in the UK on April 19. The disc spurned the hits 'Can't Shake The Feeling' and the trio's iconic kitsch cover version of 'Blame It On The Boogie'.
In addition, Edsel Records are also set to re-issue two classic Rick Astley PWL albums next month. 'Whenever You Need Somebody' and 'Hold Me In Your Arms' will be re-released in the UK on April 12, complete with bonus tracks and a second CD containing 14 remixes.
Aussie fans haven't been missing out either, however, with a selection of classic PWL albums making their way to the local iTunes store in recent times. Sonia's classic 'Everybody Knows' is now available, so too singles and remixes from Lonnie Gordon, Hazell Dean, Cool Notes, Boy Krazy, Delage, Erik and many more.
Seems that everything old is new again.
