High Energy Double Dance - Volume.3 (2LP Set) 1984 80 Minutes Non-Stop mix

Not Bad - more High Energy than Italo really. I'd rate Vol 2 better but this is still a good one.
Fancy is back with the brill Chinese Eyes and Come Inside And a remix of Slice Me Nice. Nice tracks from Hazell Dean, Cafe Society Fun Fun.
Also the big dance version of One Night in Bankok by Robey. Oh and guess what's back again - Evelyn Thomas with "High Energy".
 Not much more really stands out in memory other than Divines' "I'm So Beautiful" (yip! Stock And Aitken on the credits) which I still think is great even thought its very camp - see the pictures page if you want to see what Divine really looked like (without the fright-wig that is).

Another cool cover - oddly enough 1, 2 & 3 all look similar but are done by totally different people. Once again Paul Parkers' name is up in lights but nowhere to be found, as with Nicci Galble's. Interesting to note that they have kept the original High - Energy font almost throughout the whole series, the "Double Dance" font was only kept from this volume on.
