NAKED EYES (US LP Version) on CD


NAKED EYES (US LP Version) on CD

Postby discoginfo » Tue Aug 28, 2018 11:00 am

The first naked Eyes LP was titled "Burning Bridges" in UK and came out in March 1983 with 12 tracks.
It came out the month after in USA, simply titled "Naked Eyes" with only 10 tracks.
This special US variation is now out on CD for the first time on the Chrysalis labe.

https://amzn.to/2PKIFtS

It has five bonus tracks: the two "missing" LP tracks, one B-side and two 12" Mixes.

11. A Very Hard Act To Follow (2018 Remaster)
12. The Time Is Now (2018 Remaster)
13. Pit Stop (2018 Remaster)
14. Always Something There To Remind Me (Jellybean Extended Remix 2018 Remaster)
15. Promises, Promises (feat. Madonna) [Jellybean 12" Dance Mix 2018 Remaster]

All tracks are available on CD on different CDs already, but for those of you who are used to the US LP track order
and versions (it has a special version of Promises, Promises compared to the UK LP) and it has been remastered too.
Also, it's quite cheap. But they could have added more bonus tracks....!

Thanks. That went a bit unnoticed. Naked Eyes has a strong discography for being a band who only released two proper studio albums at their peak.

Remind me again, what from Naked Eyes is not on CD yet?

Thanks for the heads up on this. I just bought a copy. So this is the US LP version but this cd release is in the UK right?

It's listed on Amazon UK as being released tomorrow, no mention of import, so I guess it's a UK release.
The "Countdown" version has some additional effects, at least in the intro.

I have not analysed it 100%.

Is the 3:50 version of In The Name Of Love on any CD?

The so called "Arthur Baker single version" (named so by me for the sake of clarity) is 3:50 and is not on CD as far as I know, possibly on some various artists CD I don't know about. I believe it is the same as the LP version, only shorter. as they were both mixed by him.

The new CD is out of stock everywhere. I wonder if it really is or the release has been delayed??

Amazon UK says out of stock (and I notice the price has gone up).
Most of the Marketplace sellers are from the US. I have seen this listed as an import too. So maybe it is a US release after all.

This is out of stock everywhere probably because it isn't being released.

Seems to be in stock on Amazon USA. So this was an American release and the UK/EU sites got the release dates wrong?

I did some searching for this a couple years ago and found nothing, so I re-created the 7" Edit myself. I have shared that along with my re-creation of the U.S. 7" version of "Promises, Promises" here:

Just got the cd today. It's really loud just like the Cherry Red one. According to Discogs this is newly remastered. Whoever did it must've just copied the CR one.
