Waterloo Records

First-ever vinyl repress of Sheena Easton's hit 1983 album. Remastered from the original master tapes and pressed on white coloured vinyl with refreshed artwork including new inner sleeve. Includes the US smash singles 'Almost Over You' and Grammy-nominated 'Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)' as well as her stunning take on the Dusty Springfield classic 'Just One Smile'. Sheena Easton rocketed to overnight fame in 1980 with the BBC broadcast of The Big Time - arguably the first pop reality show - subsequently breaking records with her first two singles 'Modern Girl' and '9 To 5' simultaneously hitting the UK Top Ten. Within a year, she had topped the US Hot 100 with the renamed 'Morning Train (Nine To Five)', recorded the Bond theme 'For Your Eyes Only', released two platinum-selling albums and become an international sensation. 1983 proved a pivotal year for Sheena as she fully embraced her burgeoning US stardom following a sell-out US tour, hit TV specials and regular primetime appearances. 'Best Kept Secret' was her first album recorded Stateside. Working with red-hot producer Greg Mathieson (fresh from holding down the top two slots with Toni Basil and Laura Branigan) and Grammy-winner Jay Graydon (Earth Wind & Fire, Dionne WarwickJ) the album repositioned Easton as a youthful new wave stylist - as capable of rocking hard on cuts like 'Devil In A Fast Car' as she was in nailing a soaring Streisand-style ballad like the top 5 AC smash 'Almost Over You. ' Lead single 'Telefone' was an out of the box smash - reinstalling Sheena in the US top 10 pop and establishing her as heavy rotation MTV star and dance chart regular. This is the fourth in a series of remastered vinyls of her 1980s albums, and part of Cherry Red's on-going reissue campaign of the star's EMI catalogue in association with RT Industries.
