High Energy Double Dance - Volume.2 (2LP Set) c 1984 80 Minutes Non-Stop mix


This classic mix starts off with a High-Energy intro from SA music legend Julian Laxton.
High-Energy Double Dance - Volume 2 has all the right ingredients. Big tracks from Fancy, Fun Fun, Lime, Ken Laszlo (lots of Italo creeping in eh?). Evelyn Thomas is back in again with her "High Energy" mega hit, as on the previous album (do you think it will be on the next one too?). Also Evelyn does her fabulous "Masquerade".
"Coming Out Of Hiding" by Pamala Stanley is featured too! 
Great Hi-NRG Mega Hit Classic


Brilliant track and remix from Marsha Raven "False Alarm". Sheesh I remember that one well - big aerobics number. The Twins make their first appearance a double one "Face To Face" and "Not The Loving Kind". Other stand outs are Hazell Dean and of course Divine "You Think You're a Man" which was apparently produced by Pete Waterman of Stock Aitken Waterman Fame. Cool! Hazell Dean was already being produced by Stock and Aitken, just a matter of time.

Really a good one. Cover is a bit odd - blue sky with black lightening? Also they duffed a bit, they put the artists name on the building and although Paul Parker's is on the cover he ain't on the album.
A brilliant compilation! (for many reasons, my favourite early High-Energy album)
