Title - 'Just One Night: Deluxe Edition' (Cherry Pop)
Artist - Samantha Fox
Samantha Fox, as we all know by now, is an English dance-pop singer, actress, and former glamour model. In 1983, at the age of 16, she began her topless modelling career on Page Three of The Sun, and went on to become a popular pin-up girl.
And then, riding the wave of some serious media attention, in 1986, she launched her pop music career with her debut single 'Touch Me (I Want Your Body)', which instantly became a #1 hit in 17 countries.
She has since sold over 30 million albums worldwide, released seven original albums, has also appeared in a number of films, worked as a TV presenter, and has even appeared on reality TV shows!
Now digitally remastered and expanded, this two CD deluxe edition of her fourth album, JUST ONE NIGHT (1991) has been lovingly put out by Cherry Red Records for all her fans to enjoy, once again. Only this time, and for the first time ever, on CD!
This incredible package kicks off with the imaginatively-titled first radio play single '(Hurt Me! Hurt Me!) But The Pants Stay On,' a cover of a Donna Summer song and then an Andrea True Connection track 'More More More / Love To Love You Baby Medley,' 'Don't Wait Up,' the third single 'Just One Night,' 'Pleasure Zone,' and then both 'Another Woman (Too Many People),' and the anti-aHa song (oh, I kid!), 'Don't Cry Wolf.'
Rounding out the original album are 'Nothing You Do, Nothing You Say,' 'Saving it Up,' the fourth single released 'Spirit Of America,' and finally 'What You See Is What You Get.'
Released by Jive in March 1991 Fox once again enlisted Full Force to produce her album (they had now done three of the four, but not the debut) and also Robert Clivillés and David Cole of C+C Music Factory.
The first disc then adds some newly-discovered (in some cases) and extended versions of her hits, such as 'Now I Lay Me Down,' 'Hot Lovin',' 'I Wanna Rock 'N' Roll All Night Long,' 'Walking On Broken Glass,' 'Go For Te Heart (Original 1991 Version),' and then the trio of 'That's What Love Can Do,' 'A Second Chance,' and then finally 'Forever True.'
This set is perhaps rarer than the other deluxe editions as it includes three unreleased Stock Aitken Waterman tracks recorded in early 1991. While 'Forever True' was submitted to Jive for possible inclusion on Just One Night, 'A Second Chance' and Sam’s version of the Boy Krazy hit 'That’s What Love Can Do' were left unfinished in the wake of Matt Aitken’s departure from PWL.
Moving on and the second disc continues the flow of extended versions and a lot of previously unreleased material by starting with her full on rendition of Donna Summer's 'Love To Love You Baby,' before heading into '(Hurt Me! Hurt Me!) But The Pants Stay On (DJ Pierre’s Mix),' 'Another Woman (Too Many People) (Harding/Curnow 12" Version),' 'That's What Love Can Do (Extended Version),' 'A second Chance (Extended Version),' and both 'Now I Lay Me Down (Soundtrack Version)' and 'Don't Wait Up (Extended Version).'
The previously-sought-after B-sides and unheard track, many mixes originally only issued on vinyl continue on with more alternate versions of songs already heard, in the form of '(Hurt Me! Hurt Me!) But The Pants Stay On (The Pants Come Off Mix),' 'Love To Love You Baby (Lee’s House Mix),' 'Another Woman (Too Many People) (Harding/Curnow Rap Version),' '(Hurt Me! Hurt Me!) But The Pants Stay On (Instrumental),' 'Love To Love You Baby (Sleaze Mix),' and finally the album rounds out with 'Just One Night (Radio Edit),' 'Forever True (Instrumental), and another version of 'Another Woman (Too Many People) (Harding/Curnow Instrumental).'
And with all Cherry Red CD booklets, this one is compiled with personal input from Samantha herself. Indeed, the extensive booklet also features many additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, full lyrics and new sleeve notes written especially for this release.
