REQ: David Austin - Turn To Gold (CDR) (2016)

Postby xymox970 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 4:26 am

I have always had a soft spot for this David Austin / George Michael release from 1984.
Although it performed very poorly on the single charts, I honestly think this is one of the best pop singles of the year - and the competition is certainly fierce.

Amazed to have found this the other day on discogs: ... se/8523932

Apparently, an unofficial EMI release from 2016, blocked from further sale....I guess impossible to track down.
I dont know whether it is remastered or not.

Anyway, the only place to find all David Austin 12" releases in one place - on a CDR that is.
The quality would be another matter.....but who knows ?

If someone, by any chance, has this item, would they be so kind to upload it ?

Many thanks! :)

BTW, for those that are wondering, as I was until recently.....Turn To Gold 7" can relatively easy be found on several 80s CD compilations,
but the 12" version is currently only available on this one: ... se/1387287
Personal Jesus
