Hot RS - House Of The Rising Sun & Forbidden Fruit (2 Albums on 1 CD) 1978 disco rock classic "Hard-To-Find" VERY RARE CD!


HOT R.S is an acronym for House Of The Rising Sun, a 70’s disco project anchored by South African clarinetist Dan Hill and producer/percussionist Kevin Kruger, also of Disco Rock Machine in the late 1970’s. HOT R.S. put out a self titled LP in 1977, and a followup entitled “Forbidden Fruit” in 1978. Their 1977 cut “Slow Blow” still seems to be a favorite among many disco enthusiasts and producers.

1977 & 1978

Ashleigh Sendin - "(Ha Ha) Here I Come" (1984) hi-nrg electro disco eurobeat 80s "Hard-To-Find" OUT OF PRINT - VERY RARE!


"A Very Rare South African 80's Hi-Nrg Electro Record"

I recently found out that the artist Ashleigh Sendin who sang ‘(Ha Ha) Here I come’ on the South-African compilation album High Energy Double Dance - Vol 2 (1984) and ‘Who needs it’ (Eurobeat 3 - 1987) is a South-African. She has been living in the UK for the past twenty years having had a rewarding career on stage and are currently the headmaster of an Acting school. I contacted her and asked her about her life in South-Africa and UK.

DJ Radcliff: How did you end up recording ‘(Ha Ha) Here I Come’ with the legendary Patric van Blerk and Fransua Roos?
Ashleigh: I met them through a record company called Principal Records for whom I had recorded another single called Rebecca (sort of Kate Bush style ballad).

DJ Radcliff: Was ‘Here I come' released in other markets other than South-Africa?
Ashleigh: To the best of my knowledge none of the tracks were released outside South Africa.

DJ Radcliff: Did you record any other tracks with them during this period?
Ashleigh: I recorded another track which was used on a dance compilation called ‘Who needs it’. They used my name although I recorded it as a session. That was in 1987 just before I left for the UK.

DJ Radcliff: High Energy was really big during this period, even in South-Africa; did you ever get to meet any other High Energy artists?
Ashleigh: When I released ‘Here I come’ I was part of a High Energy dance music concert tour. A group of Dance music recording artists from the US and UK came over for the tour. Evelyn Thomas, Miquel Brown, Marsha Raven, Earlene Bentley and Barbara Pennington.
I worked with Earlene on my first job in the West End, ‘Blues in the Night’ at the Piccadilly Theatre, and then worked with Sinitta a recording artist whose mother is Miquel Brown in ‘HAIR’ at the Old Vic. Small World!

DJ Radcliff: You were also credited in a 1979 movie of South-African director Percival Rubens called Midnight Caller (aka The Demon and The Unholy) How old were you when you appeared in this slasher flick and did you feature in any other films?
Ashleigh: I was 15 in that particular film and was also in a couple of other equally dire South African films one was the ‘Lions Share’ and the other was ‘Follow that Rainbow’.

DJ Radcliff: Would you mind giving us some more information on your life in South-Africa, like what schools you attended, and what local productions you were involved with?
Ashleigh: I grew up in Bryanston and Fourways –when fourways was just veldt. I went to Bryanston Primary and then Bryanston High School. I started professionally at age 13 playing ‘Annie’ for Joan Brickhill and Louis Burke. I did ‘Wizard of OZ’,’ Robin Hood’, ‘Hans Christian Anderson’ and ‘Judy’ for Napac. ‘Godspel’l and ‘My name is Alice’ for Des and Dawn Lindbergh and ‘The Hollow’ and ’The Real Thing’ for Pieter Toerien, among others. For the SABC I did ‘The Settlers’,’ The Danny Bickett Show’,’ Inspector Carr investigates’ and various commercials etc. I was working solidly from the age of 13 so chose not to go the university route.

DJ Radcliff: You have been in the UK for almost 20 years now, do you still have ties with South-Africa and when was the last time you visited our shores?
Ashleigh: My family are all still in SA. I was over only a month ago as my Mum passed away.

DJ Radcliff: Please tell us how you ended up in The West End, what did you do when you first went to the UK?
Ashleigh: I was very lucky in respect of timing when I got to the UK. The West End was experiencing a boom and I was able to get an agent and get work within 6 months of arriving in the UK. My first job was understudying the girl and the woman in ‘Blues in the Night’. I played the Juve lead in ‘Anything Goes’ with Elaine Paige. On ‘Saturday Night’ I achieved a lifelong ambition which was to meet Stephen Sondheim.

DJ Radcliff: As mentioned before you were involved in many musicals on the West End, give us a brief list of you proudest achievements?
Ashleigh: Some I have already mentioned but will give a brief list. ‘Blues in the Night’ at the Piccadilly theatre, ‘Anything Goes’ at the Prince Edward theatre, ‘Lady in the Dark’ at The National, ‘Hair’ at the Old Vic. ‘Promises, Promises’ and Sondheim’s ’Saturday Night’, The obligatory pantomimes if living in the UK, ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Aladdin’. Several seasons of ‘Lost’ musicals at the Barbican-Concert Productions of musicals from the 30’s to the 50’s mainly. I performed in seven of those over five seasons. Several concept albums for projected musicals which I still do occasionally and session work i.e. backing vocals for demos also for ITV’S Spitting Image. I performed with the cast of ‘Anything Goes’ for The Queen Mothers 90th Birthday at the London Palladium as well as several Charity performances for Crusade and the Princess Diana Fund also at the Palladium.

DJ Radcliff: You are currently the principal of a company called ‘Stagecoach’ What exactly is ‘Stagecoach’ and what other projects are you currently working on?
Ashleigh: Stagecoach is a large organization with Theatre schools all over the UK and the World. I bought the franchise for Penzance so own the business for that territory. Basically I am the principal and I employ 4 teachers and an assistant. It’s pretty much what I do full time. I got tired of doing 8 shows a week I had been working in Musicals for 25 years!


DJ Radcliff: Thank you for chatting to us; it was really interesting to find out what Asleigh Sendin has been up to the past 24 years since High Energy Double Dance Vol 2 came out. Keep well!

Sinitta - "Toy Boy" (12'' Maxi) 1987 hi-nrg eurobeat disco pwl 80's hit single [x6 remixes]


TRACKLISTING
01 - Toy Boy (7'' Mix)  3.25
02 - Toy Boy (Extended Rap Version)  3.47
03 - Toy Boy (Brand New Megamix)  5.10

Sinitta Renet Malone (born October 19, 1966 in Seattle, Washington, United States), known professionally as Sinitta, is an American singer who has lived in the United Kingdom for most of her career. She is best known for her hit records in the 1980s; including "So Macho", "Toy Boy", "Cross My Broken Heart" and "Right Back Where We Started From". She has also acted in a number of West End shows, has been affiliated with The X Factor, and appeared as a contestant on the eleventh series of

Sinitta is the daughter of Canadian actress and singer Miquel Brown ("So Many Men, So Little Time) and Anthony Blackett.  Her birth year is usually cited as 1968, although some press sources have alleged she was born earlier, perhaps 1966 or even as early as 1963.  1963 seems most likely given that in 1982 she was dating 21-year-old Nick Cowell before dumping him for his 23-year-old brother Simon. It would be unlikely that either man would date a 13-year-old, which would be her age if she had been born in 1968.


Sinitta was both Simon Cowell's and Fanfare Records's first signing.  Cowell was desperate for Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) to write and produce for Sinitta. "Feels Like The First Time", Sinitta's subsequent single following "So Macho", had charted low (number 45 UK Oct 1986) and only spent 5 weeks on the chart, whereas, in contrast, "So Macho" had been on the UK chart for 30 weeks in 1986, where it had peaked at number 2.
 Initially, Waterman declined to work with Sinitta, claiming that SAW were too busy.  SAW did work with Sinitta later however, and her first single with the Hit Factory was "Toy Boy".
In his book, Simon Cowell takes credit for the song idea for "Toy Boy", coining the phrase "toy boy", which described older women dating considerably younger men.
This is contradicted by writer/producer Mike Stock in his book, The Hit Factory - The Stock Aitken Waterman Story, in which he claims that his inspiration came from the fact that Sinitta herself at the time was dating a younger man. "Toy Boy" was a hit, reaching number 4 in the UK in July 1987, staying on the charts for 14 weeks.
